Compatible ink for laser printer?

we have a brother printer and I have been tempted with the prices of compatible cartridges - any things to be wary of - the printer is out of warranty.

Toner, not ink. Get one from a supplier that backs their product, and just go for it.

Cross-fingers and go for it. worst case is fork out another 75 bucks for a new brother.

Even worse case is to pay to have your carpet/clothes/printer cleaned if the contents of the toner dump on the floor. If you use a normal vacuum cleaner you risk blowing it up and/or breathing in toner dust which is carcinogenic.
Its a lower risk than it used to be, but it can happen with refilled toner cartridges.

It can happen with OEM cartridges too believe me.

Don't throw the old toner out yet, a little bit of packing tape will get you a couple hundred more pages. Worked on mine no worries http://youtu.be/hPCGZZIdXyM
