Brother Genuine TN433 High Yield Black toner cartridge
Top Positive Review
I initially bout 2 other kind of toner cartridges, but both did not get recognized by the printer, so they did not work:
As soon as I bought the original (which is 3 times more expensive), the cartridge got detected by the printer and it worked. The print quality is perfect, just as expected. I just wish it was not this expensive.
I recommend this cartridge, with some reservation due to cost.
Top Critical Review
While a non-defective cartridge doesn’t compare to the generic cartridges that fit my Brother printer (I tried and it ruined my laser printer), Amazon (sold by Amazon) delivered this cartridge to me without an outer brown box. It came in the original Brother box itself, with a shipping label stuck directly onto it. I would really prefer to have an extra layer of protection when getting my products delivered, and since cartridges are fairly expensive, I do not want pedestrians to see an expensive product lying in front of my door after delivery.
So Brother’s customer service is horrendous (won’t factor into this review since it’s sold by Amazon). The cartridge was faulty and had a black stripe printing from the side. If you ever want to have the option to have Brother replace your brand new cartridges, do not keep a backup cartridge stored for longer than 3 months. If a cartridge is any more than 3 months old, even if freshly opened, Brother will not exchange even a faulty cartridge – horrendous customer service, considering it’s so expensive (almost $84 for the black).
When the cartridges aren’t defective; however, these do not compare to generic ones. I ruined my previous laser printer by trying a generic (it spilled ink powder everywhere, causing permanent damage). Stick with the authentic Brother cartridges for your Brother lasers.
Customer Questions & Answers

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW printer uses Brother TN431, TN433 and TN436 toner cartridges; the drum unit model is the DR-431CL. We strongly recommend to use only Brother Genuine cartridges for optimal results. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability. The Brother??
Can this be used/replaced without changing the color toners?
Answer: It can be still used until it gives a “Replace Toner” message on the printer
If this printer sits for years with only occasional printing, will it still print? Inkjets stop working after a while I’ve found after not using it.
Answer: The toner cartridge shelf life is 2 years if the protective bag is unopened or 6 months after the protective bag is opened.
Will the brother genuine tn433bk fit the brother mfc-9340cdw?
Answer: The Brother MFC-9340CDW printer is not compatible with the Brother TN-433BK toner cartridge. This printer uses the TN-221BK toner cartridge.
