I ordered this item because the title and Description CLEARLY state that this is a BROTHER OEM part.Brother TN250 Toner CartridgeTechnical DetailsFor Brother plain-paper fax machines and multifunction devicesCompatible with DCP1000; IntelliFax 2800, 2900, 3800; MFC4800, MFC6800Yields 2,200 pages at 5% coverageFine black toner particles for sharp detailGenuine Brother quality accessoryWhat I was shipped was a COMPATIBLE generic cartridge.

Tried a generic equivalent cartridge from Staples with miserable results--could barely read the printing from my laser fax. Replaced the almost new generic with the real thing and 3 pages later the printing was just fine. I have used "equivalent" toner cartridges (by Xerox) with my HP printer and had very good results, but I will stick with Brother for my fax.
We've had an MFC4800 for a number of years now (and paid several hundred more than it sells for now.)I bought a non-Brother toner cartridge. Once.It printed terribly, had streaks everywhere. I wound up replacing the drum as well to get it working properly again.This was only the 2nd toner cartridge, so I don't think it was quite time for a drum.Spend the extra money on this - buy the Brother toner.
