Save hundreds of pounds with toner refills
Brother HL-3150cdw cyan TN-245C cartridge £61 ex VAT
Toner refill bottle £14 ex VAT
Print for a third of the price
Typically, you can expect to print for around one third of the original cartridge price. For some printers (case in point, Lexmark) you're looking at more like half the cost. Why the limitation on thrift? In a word, "killer chips". OK, that was two words, but where the printer forces the use of micro-chips: refilling costs go up.
UK suffers scandalous prices for colour toner
"A set of new cartridges costs more than the printer did." Urban myth? Or fact of printing life?
See for yourself. Google the price of the Brother HL-3150cdw laser printer. I did on 21/10/2018 and the first result I clicked on was 108 quid + VAT (from currys.co.uk).
The best price I could find for all four original cartridges on the same day was £221.34 + VAT (For the TN-241BK/TN-245C-M-Y multipack).
£108 for the printer versus £221 for even the low capacity cartridges for it. No. That is not a typo.
Meanwhile, meticulous research by U Refill Toner shows that 8 out of 10 cats actually prefer their toner to cost less than their printer. No surprises there, then.
You save money with the UK professionals
If you're going to refill your toner cartridge, you want to know that someone's tested that possibility first, right? Preferably several times, so all the bugs are out of it?
In short, you want success on a plate: first time. See how far we're prepared to go to give you a positive refill experience in this video of us refilling the Brother HL-L8250

Just to say thanks a million for the excellent product and great tuition video. When deciding which laser printer to purchase I chose the Brother MFC based entirely on your recommendation as to it's ease of re-filling. A year later and I've just fitted my first missing wheel and spring to the black toner cartridge. Sweet as!

Just refilled yet another cartridge and I can only say your system works as well as the screwfix site which to me is a benchmark for user friendly and customer focused service. It took no time at all to identify my printer and order what I needed.

I would just like to thank you for your excellent product and step-by-step instructions. I bought a kit from you for my Brother HL-3150CDW some time ago. I have installed the reset wheels and reset all of the cartridges over time and only now have had to do a melt-and-pour. It worked perfectly and I am a happy man.

You guys are amazing! Just refilled my printer with the toner you sent last week. A little bit of mess but the test prints are great! I am convinced the toner you provided is better than the stuff Brother ship! Thanks for saving me a tonne of money, all the best for 2016!

A couple of days ago, I received a refill for my Brother HL2035. This, less than 24 hours after I'd ordered it. After a few minutes work my printer was back in business. Not only that but the refill came with a thoroughly enjoyable 'newsletter', which, in itself, was almost worth the price of the toner. In an age of impersonal, behemoth firms, dealing with one like yours is a delight. All power to your elbow - or whatever bit you typically use...
