Brother TN450/TN420 vs DR420, what is the difference?

Brother TN450 and DR420

For Brother printers, toner cartridges and drum units need to work together to print and are purchased separately, which easily lead to you purchase the wrong model. In this article, taking the TN450 and DR420 as examples, I will show you the difference between the toner cartridges and drum units.

An Overview of Brother Toner Cartridges and Drum Units

Toner cartridges

The toner cartridge contains powder for printing text and images, and powder (toner) volume determines the yield of the cartridge, so the toner can be offered in a different yield cartridge size. Brother TN450 is the high-yield version of TN420, and the difference between them is that TN450 can print more pages.

Drum units

The drum is a shelf that holds the cartridge and then prints clear and vivid text and images by fixing the toner of the cartridge to paper. A drum unit lasts longer than a toner cartridge. The cartridge is replaced first, and the drum usually needs to be replaced after 3-5 cartridges are used up.

(Toner + Drum) Compo Pack

A toner cartridge is combined with a drum unit as a unit in your printer, so there are specific Brother Toners that are designed to fit into specific Brother Drums such as, TN450 with DR420, TN760 with DR730, and TN750 with DR720. They cannot be mixed, otherwise the size does not match and cannot be printed.

Brother tn450 cartridge and dr420 drum

What is the difference between DR420 and TN450/TN420?

DR420 is a drum unit but TN450 and TN420 are toner cartridges. Brother DR420 like a shelf to support tn450 or tn420 cartridge, and Brother TN450 and TN420 contains toner to create printouts. We know that TN450 cartridges can print more than TN420 cartridges, but DR420 drum units have higher page yields.

Consumable ModelTN420TN450DR420

Original Price$39.98$58.49$104.99
v4ink Price/$19.99$25.99
Shelf Life24-36 Months24-36 Months24-36 Months

You can see that DR420 drum has longer service time than TN420 and TN450 toner cartridges because the page yield of the DR420 is almost 5 times of the TN450 and 10 times of the TN420.

But you will find that the original cartridge and the drum are expensive to be replaced. At this time, you can consider v4ink compatible TN450 cartridge and DR420 drum unit. They have same print yield but cost a lot less, so that v4ink doesn’t need to sell standard yield TN420 toner. V4ink products are precisely designed to deliver clear and crisp printing result to satisfy your every need for an amazing range of colors experience.

v4ink tn450 cartridge and dr420 drum unit

When do the TN450 and DR420 need to be replaced?

If the printer prompts “replace toner” or the prints are gradually fading, you need to prepare a new TN450 toner cartridge. If blank spaces or streaks in printing, or the printer prompts “drum replace”, the DR420 drum unit needs to be replaced.

Hope these information can help you better understand TN420 / TN450 toner cartridges and DR730 drum unit. If you have any questions about them, please contact us by email: support_

What is the difference between TN420 and TN450?

Page Yield

The only difference between TN420 and TN450 is the number of pages printed. Brother TN-420 is a standard-yield toner cartridge and prints approximately 1,200 pages, while TN-450 is a high-yield toner cartridge and can print up to 2600 pages. Because TN420 toner contains less powder, TN420 toner cartridge is less expensive than TN450 cartridge.

 Page YieldOriginal Price
Brother TN420 toner1200 pages$39.98
Brother TN450 toner2600 pages$58.49

Cost Per Page

From the Brother Price, TN420 cartridge is cheaper than TN450 cartridge. But their printable pages are not the same, so not the most accurate price comparison. Therefore, we calculate their cost per page uniformly and find which one is cheaper.

Brother TN420 standard yield toner cartridge:

$39.98/1200 pages = 3.3 cents

Brother TN450 high yield toner cartridge:

$58.49/2600 pages = 2.2 cents

From the results, the cost per page of TN450 high-yield cartridge is lower than TN420 standard-yield cartridge. If you print infrequently, you can save money with TN420 toner, but if you print frequently, we recommend TN450 toner as it has a better long term.

Ways to Save More on TN450 Toner Cartridges

If you are looking to save more on printing costs than Brother TN450 cartridges, we strongly recommend purchasing the v4ink TN450 Compatible High Yield Black Toner Cartridge.

How to fix “No Toner” Error on Brother Printers

What should we do when your Brother printer gives an error prompt of “No Toner”? Many people will think that my toner cartridge is damaged or has quality issues. Is it always like this? A few simple steps can help you quickly check whether it is caused by the quality problem of the toner cartridge or due to improper installation or other reasons. In addition, you can quickly restore the normal operation of your toner cartridge through the following simple operations. Let’s jump in!

What causesNo Toner error display?

There are 4 major reasons for the “No Toner” error display.

1) Caused by printer structure.

no toner cause by the structure

When the printer is running and printing, the toner cartridge driven by the supply roller will lead to the separation of the chip and the printer probe, which causes “No Toner”.

2) The model of the toner cartridge chip does not match cause “No Toner”. 

3) The chip on the toner cartridge has stains, dust or other foreign matters that prevent the chip from normal contact with the printer causing “No Toner”. 

4) The print probe in the printer is deformed, damaged and unable to contact the chip. 

As long as we know the causes of mistakes, we can solve them easily and get your printer return to normal.

Solution 1. Make the chip of the toner cartridge restore normal contact with the printer probe.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer, then close the cover, waiting for the printer stop running. Then re-check if the printer has become normal.

Step 2 > Open the cover of the printer, take out the toner cartridges, then re-install the toner cartridges into the printer. Close the printer cover and re-check if it becomes normal.

Step 3 > Turn off the power of the printer and wait for 3-4 seconds. Then turn on the printer and see if the printer becomes normally used.

Solution 2. Double check if the toner cartridge comes with the correct chip and observe whether there are stains, dust, glue or other foreign matters on the chip surface.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer, and check whether the chip model is consistent with the printer model.

Step 2 > Take out the toner cartridge from the printer, and observe whether there are stains, dust, glue or other foreign matters on the chip surface.

Step 3 > If there are foreign matters, please use industrial alcohol and non-woven fabric to erase it gently. If it cannot be erased, you need to replace a new chip.

Step 4 > Close the printer cover to see if the printer becomes normally used.

Solution 3. Observe whether the print probe is deformed or damaged.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer and take out the toner cartridges, a water-based pen to coat the chip contacts.

Step 2 > Close the printer cover and waiting the machine to run about 4-5 seconds, observe whether the chip contacts with coating have clear scratches.

Step 3 > If there is no clear scratch on the chip contacts, it indicates that the chip has poor contact with the printer probe, and the printer probe may be damaged or deformed.

Step 4 > Replace a new printer probe (You can replace it yourself or contact the after-sales maintenance of the machine to replace it). After replacing the printer probe, observe whether the printer becomes normally used.

If the above methods still cannot eliminate the error message of “No Toner” for your Brother printer, there may be a quality problem with the toner cartridge itself. It is recommended to contact the merchant for a replacement or refund. If you have any problems during using Brother printer, please feel free to contact us with email: or join our Facebook group to discuss with us.

The Difference between CF280A and CF280X Toner Cartridge

Main pic

Many printer users attempts to figure out the difference between CF280A (HP 80A) and CF280X (HP 80X) toner, and eager to opt for an adaptable one for intended use. Let’s jumpstart to have a quick review.

Life Circle

The definition of “A” and “X” stands for the toner volume. CF280A is a standard cartridge with 2700 pages, whilst CF280X is a high-yield cartridge able to yield out 6900 pages. The specific amount of the pages accords to the contents that users intend to print. The advertised page amount was tested in conformity to industrial criteria: 5% coverage per A4 /Letter-size black-and white paper.

Applicable Printer Model

Apart from the capacity, the secondary difference lies in their compatible printer lists.

Printers for CF280A toner:

HP Pro 400 M401 M401a M401d M401dn, M401dne, M401dw, M401n; HP Pro 400 MFP M425dn M425dw Printer.

Printers for CF280X toner:

HP P2050 P2055 P2055d P2055dn P2055x; HP Pro 400 M401 M401a M401d M401dn, M401dne, M401dw, M401n; HP Pro 400 MFP M425dn M425dw Printer.

Are they totally compatible with your printer? Be aware that models such as P2050 P2055 P2055d P2055dn P2055x can only be used with CF280X toner rather than CF280A toner. If installed into the incorrect printer model, the printer won’t accept it by presenting the unfit notification.


Does a high-yield cartridge cost more than the standard one? Yes, but you get more pages than you expected for the general cartridge. See below chart and you will know which one is much more preferable.



There is no difference between them in installation section. Don’t forget to take the first 3 preliminary steps as they are to guarantee the normal function and best result of the toner. If the black papers or sealing tape isn’t removed, the printer will not print anything but a blank page given.


Special Test

Both v4ink CF280A and CF280X compatible toner cartridge has been undergone a stringent quality screening procedure with regards to temperature range, life circle, humidity, drop test, meeting the industrial ISO/IEC19752 production specification.
