What is the difference between TN420 and TN450?
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 Yield||Original Price|
|Brother TN420 toner||1200 pages||$39.98|
|Brother TN450 toner||2600 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.
