I'm done with Meritline and there toner cartridges. I bought 4 of their "premium" toner carts for $60 shipped back in Augst for myself and family members that have 2240/2270/2280 printers. The last 2 "premium" carts I installed here both yielded just over 900 pages before they started printing with both the left and right border being shaded far lighter then the center. As a matter of fact, both carts seemed to be a little lighter overall when I initially installed them, but I thought perhaps it was my sight (you can call me 4 eyes' as of last Friday). Bought the Linkyo cart from the front page deal, installed it in my 2240 and immediately noticed the difference. I always print a drum/cart test page and highlight the page number when installing a new cart for a page count. I compared the 2 previous "print" pages from the Meritline carts and this new Linkyo cart, night and day difference. The Linkyo cart looked spot on from the original Brother starter cart that came with the printer.
Anyway, sorry for the history lesson here but I have been defending Meritline when others bitched because of problems with the carts they were receiving from Meritline. No more, Linkyo from now on, or some other brand recommended by my SD mates. I hate wasting money, and 1800 or so pages from 2 Meritline carts is not a deal.
BTW, popped the plug on both Meritline carts and there seemed to be plenty of toner left in the reservoir.
