I usually have to purchase a drum once a year but lately I am having to purchase them every 3 months or so. The life cycle of these drums just keeps getting shorter and shorter. I do not print any more than I did when I first bought the printer as I use my HP laser for the bulk of my printing for the quality. The drums are just not producing the quantity specified anymore, nor does the toner. I do good to print 1000 copies on the toner before it runs out.

Not a good Purchase
Bought this for my office printer and after just like 5uses it says that my drum is coming to end of life.... I had called and got a replacement and the same thing is happening.... I would not recommend this for anyone.... Not a good purchase at all.

The brother printers are extremely durable and offer the best value in printing.

Brother DR-420 Drum
To the person who only got 320 pages from the drum and received a message needs new drum, you did not reset the printer to let it know you installed a new Drum. To Reset, do the following: 1-Open front cover, 2- hold down the GO button until ALL the lights blink including the RED Error light. 3 - let go of the Go button, 4 - Close the front cover. You are finished, the machine will cycle, not print a page but if you print a Settings report, the printer will show 100% drum life. These instructions are for the HL-22xx series Brother Printer.
