Page Yield Up To 10000 Pages

This Compatible Brother DR1050 Drum Unit is quoted as doing up to 10000 pages before needing to be replaced.

The page yield is calculated by manufacturers using ISO/IEC 24711 standards, where they print set documents of 5% page coverage until the cartridge is empty. The standard means you can compare yields between cartridges and manufacturers.

Product Description

This is a compatible Brother DR1050 drum unit, this is the part of the printer which prints the toner powder into your design. A compatible drum is a brand new product which has been made by a third party company. The compatible DR1050 drum can produce up to 10,000 pages so it's ideal for a small/home office environment.

When your drums wearing out the printer will let you know it needs to be replaced, so you'll need to order a new one. When you open the print the drum and cartridge are removed together, you'll see a clip on one side, it's normally blue, move this clip to un-clip the toner cartridge from the drum and then carefully take the toner out. Then get the new drum slide the toner into it and move the clip to clip in into place. The new drum and the toner can now be inserted back into the printer as one. And that's it, job done! You can use the compatible 1050 drum unit along with a compatible or original toner, it'll still work just the same either way.

The compatible 1050 drum unit has been put through its paces and tested to make sure it's top quality, but just encase you do ever have an issue we have a 12 month performance guarantee in place. Our customer service team are available from Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 5pm so just let them know and they'll get it sorted.

The compatible DR1050 drum is packaged in its own boxes so it can be stored for up to 6 months without their quality or performance being affected. So if you don't need it straight away, there's no rush! And remember, our delivery is free and the compatible DR1050 drum is covered by our 12 month performance guarantee.

I have used compatible drum this is the second time. the first time it was perfect but the second time, the printer kept on prompting me to replace the drum cartridge and the printing was faint. since I buy all my ink from here has never got any trouble with their product I want to believe this is a one off problem. I will try again and see for this case I would give them a 3 otherwise it would have been a 5
