strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drum units and/or
toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set
temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner
formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other
to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the
hardware performance, print quality, and machine reliability. The Brother
limited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of
third party drum units, toner cartridges, or toner.
DR720 drum unit can print approximately 30,000 A4 or Letter size single-sided
pages at 1 per/job.
- There are many
factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity,
type of paper, type of toner used, number of pages per print job and so on.
Under ideal conditions, the average drum life is estimated at approximately
30,000 pages. The actual number of pages that your drum will print may be
significantly less than this estimate. Because we have no control over the many
factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot guarantee a minimum
number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
- For best
performance, use only genuine Brother toner. The printer should be used only in
a clean, dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
- Printing with a
non-Brother drum unit may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality
and life of the machine itself. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems
caused by the use of a non-Brother drum unit.
