Cartridge Specification

The matching toner cartridge of HL-L2350DW and MFC-L2750DW are TN760 and TN730 Toner Cartridges.

The TN730 is a standard yield cartridge that prints approximately 1,200 pages. The TN760 is a high yield cartridge that contains more toner and prints approximately 3,000 pages.

Brother printers that use the TN730 cartridge can also use this compatible TN760 replacement. This compatible TN760 should fit in the same slot as the TN730 and should install just the same.

It is worth noting that the TN760 or TN730 toner cartridge needs to be used together with the DR730 Drum Unit.

Service Life

The amount of page yield determines the service life of TN760 and TN730. Since the page yield of TN760 (approximately 3,000 pages) is more than twice of the TN730 (approximately 1,200 pages). Therefore, the TN760 will be more durable, with lower replacement frequency, and more suitable for users with a large number of printing needs. Moreover, compared with TN730, the cost per page will be lower.

Cost per Page

Cost per page (CPP) is determined by dividing the cost of that printer cartridge by the printer cartridge’s page yield. Through the cost per page, we can find out which product has better cost performance.
