Brother toner cartridges are typically available in a couple of different cartridge sizes. If you own any of the printers listed below, you can use either a TN-820, TN-850 or TN-880 toner cartridge in your machine. The TN-820 is the standard yield version of the printer cartridge and prints approximately 3,000 pages. The TN-850 is a high yield cartridge, printing 8,000 pages and the TN-880 is the super high yield cartridge and prints 12,000 pages. All of these toners are compatible with your printer and the installation process is identical, no matter which one you purchase!

Brother HL‑L5000D / HL‑L5100DN / HL‑L5200DW / HL‑L5200DWT / HL‑L6200DW / HL‑L6200DWT
