      3-year warranty on our own-brand cartridges
      We are proud of our own-brand cartridges, so we’ve made trying them a no-brainer. If within three years of purchase you have any problem whatsoever, we’ll happily offer either a replacement or a refund.
      Returning items is easy—it takes just a few minutes. But our return rate is very low, so you’ll be unlikely to need it.
      We are confident that no other own-brand cartridges are better than ours. They produce vibrant prints with accurate colour densities and dark blacks—and their page yields are as good as the genuines, if not better. Give them a try, and see why our customers love them.
      Our own-brand cartridges are incredibly reliable for three reasons:
      1. We are the UK’s biggest seller of own-brand cartridges, and we have invested a lot in optimising them.
      2. We are dedicated to quality. Every own-brand cartridge is performance-tested before it leaves the factory.
      3. We constantly monitor customer feedback, and quickly resolve any issues.

      “In the unlikely event that Cartridge Save own brand cartridges cause damage to your printer—regardless of how old your printer is—we will repair or replace your printer for free.”
      And they won’t invalidate your printer manufacturer’s warranty...
      If your printer is less than one year old, your manufacturer’s warranty won’t be affected by using our cartridges (this is the law). However, in the unlikely event that our own brand products are to blame, we will take over the manufacturer’s warranty offering phone support and, if needed, repair or replace your printer.

      This means there is absolutely no risk in giving Cartridge Save own brand cartridges a try.

  • Why does the HL-2130 printer advertise the toner as "DR2200" on a blue sticker on the drum when this is actually the code for the drum? I bought the DR2200 cartridge online thinking it was toner. When it didn't work I blamed the supplier of the DR2200 drum until eventually I realised I should have bought toner TN2010. What's going on?

    Brother HL-2130 cartridge numbers

    The Brother HL-2130 laser printer requires a separate toner and drum unit. The cartridge number for the Brother HL-2130 toner cartridge is "TN2010" whereas the cartridge number for the Brother HL-2130 drum unit is "DR2200". Although we can't comment on the products supplied by other retailers we can confirm that the images on our website and boxes issued with each of these cartridges will correspond to the correct product whether it's the toner TN2010 or drum DR2200.

  • I'm unsure which laser printer to buy? It's for home use and I don't need colour, so I thought a laser might be best. In my price budget I looked at a Brother HL2130 and a Samsung ML2165W: the toner for the Samsung seems more expensive though perhaps it's better / lasts longer? I don't print very much (maybe 10 pages a week at most). Also, I'm not in the country for about five months of the year and am concerned at the ink drying up when not in use. This is the problem with my Kodak ESP C310 plus in spite of being only thirteen months old, needs new printheads already - it's hardly been used so it was a very bad buy.

    Printer with low toner costs

    Here at Cartridge Save we specialise in printer consumables so we suggest that you contact a printer retailer for more in-depth advice when purchasing a new printer. In terms of the toner costs, we suggest that you look at the price-per-page we offer for various types of toner. The two printer models you mentioned are very similar in this regard and they have toner capacities which are quite low. You'll often find toner cartridges with a higher capacity and these can be more economical if you print in high-volumes but we think you're about right in terms of the toner cartridge size you're looking at. If you narrow your search down to a few models and then call our customer care team you can ask them to advise you on which printer will offer you the lowest cost-per-print based on our current toner prices. Toner is not the same as ink so it won't dry up as quickly in your printer although we still advise you to print as often as you can to ensure that the toner doesn't settle in the cartridge which can lead to print problems. You can also give the cartridge a gentle shake to prevent this from happening.

  • Do I need a cartridge in addition to a drum for my Brother HL-2130? The printer has suddenly been turning out blank pages with the last cartridge I had from you, although it has printed much less than the stated number of pages. Could it be the drum? It's a relatively new printer with only one cartridge change. Thanks.

    Brother HL-2130 consumables replacement

    The Brother HL-2130 printer does need a separate toner and drum both installed in order to print. Your printer should notify you which supply needs replacing. Please be aware that the stated number of pages given for the Brother HL-2130 toner yield is based on printing at 5% coverage of an A4 page. Therefore, if you're printing full pages of text or above 5% coverage on the page you'll need to reduce the amount of pages you expect to print accordingly. Any decline in print quality that cannot be attributed to the toner cartridge usually indicates that a replacement drum is needed.

  • My Brother HL2130 printer is saying "drum not working"? I've changed the toner but still no joy. Have you any suggestions?

    Brother HL-2130 drum replacement

    Changing the toner will not resolve a problem with the drum in the Brother HL-2130 printer because the toner and drum units are separate parts with different jobs.

Brother HL-2130 Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother HL-2130 printer

Our Verdict:

There are tons of office based printers out there, but finding the right one for your needs and requirements is made much easier as long as you know the ins and the outs where each machine is concerned. Well, with this in mind, here is a brief run through of the finer aspects of the Brother HL-2130. After all, you can only really make an informed decision if you know all the facts, right? Well, here they are, right down to the design of the Brother HL-2130 and its advantages.

Design

The Brother HL-2130 looks fairly unassuming. In fact, it looks much like any office based printer but this is not a bad thing per say. After all, if you wanted an attractive piece of kit, you wouldn't be looking for an office printer! The Brother HL-2130 is white in terms of colour, fairly box like, but it does boast a very easy to access user interface which means that your printing needs are rendered far easier to handle than you might have thought possible.

Advantages

The best thing about the Brother HL-2130 is easy to note; its fast and reliable. In an office environment, you might not require a great deal else. However, even for an office printer, the results created with the Brother HL-2130 are actually pretty easy to find yourself impressed by. Yes, it's a very well thought out machine, but it doesn't shirk away from the task in hand.

Disadvantages

The Brother HL-2130 is by no means gorgeous, but this matters little in an office environment. As such, you could without a doubt do much worse than contemplate picking up a Brother HL-2130 as there are plenty of perks to be enjoyed through ownership of this machine.
