Brother TN-360 Review
The Brother TN-360 is a fairly priced investment that can once and for all change the way in which you spend money to print various documents. Slowly but surely, toner cartridges are replacing ink ones because they are more reliable, the one featured here being a fine example of this aspect. Ink cartridges are quite difficult to maintain, especially if you don’t have them to use on a regular basis. If this is the case, ink slowly dries up and it can render the whole cartridge useless. If, on the other hand, you use the ink cartridge too often, you will soon discover it goes empty mid-printing.
A toner cartridge is ideal if you have a printer that works with such items. The Brother TN-360 has been designed to work hand in hand with a wide range of printers from the Brother brand. Among them, we ought to mention the MFC-7840W, the MFC-7440N, together with HL-2170W, HL-2140, DCP-7040 and DCP-7030. If you own one of these printers, you’re quite lucky as this toner cartridge is far from expensive, although it manages to deliver quality and quantity at the same time.
Toner cartridges have different page yields and the smallest number you can expect from such an item is a 700-page yield, but this only happens if we talk about a starter cartridge. A normal cartridge will get you anywhere between one and two thousand pages, while a heavy-duty cartridge will print even more than 2,000 pages. The Brother TN-360 falls into the third category, given the 2,600-page yield you can achieve. If you reset the printer settings at the right time, you can push this number even a bit further.
Keep in mind that the page yield advertised for the Brother TN-360 takes into account a 5% coverage of the pages you print. This is not an arbitrary number, but the average percentage of the page that actually gets covered when you have to print a full-page document. If you need to print images, the situation will change and the page yield will diminish. Given the fact this is a black-only toner cartridge, you will only be able to print out monochrome images. However, the fine toner particles allow you to enjoy even the subtlest shades of gray.
Replacing a toner cartridge that has reached a dead-end with a fresh one, like the Brother TN-360, is a process that has been extremely simplified by laser printer manufacturers. Upon taking the product out of its box, it should not take you more than a minute or two to have it installed in your printer. Don’t forget to read the instructions on how to properly install the cartridge if this is the first time you do it. A quite important step in the process is to gently shake the cartridge before inserting it into the printer so you can evenly distribute the toner inside. After this is ready, you just have to wait for the printer to heat up and you’ll then be able to put the cartridge to work.
