The drum I ordered got here very quickly and was just wnat I wanted/needed. Overstock makes ordering very easy and I have always been happy with anything I get there.
Compared to OEM supplies, this is a quantity of ink for a reasonable price. A different shape than the OEM cartridge, but works just fine. The cartridges do fit in place of the OEM LC51cartridges. The images are a much lighter shade than the original ink. Not sure why.
These are the real deal. Not an aftermarket re-furbished part that may or may not work. I'm just the tech guy, and while I want to be responsible with their money, I want the fax machines to work. It's infuriating to have a refab drum that the machine won't accept, or that goes bad before the machine feels it should. For a few extra bucks the genuine ones do just seem to work better.
In writing Amazon reviews about scanners, I remarked that there is no such thing as a good or bad scanner, only good or bad scanner software. The same is almost as true of label makers. The label-creation program that comes with the PT-2730 is remarkable for its features -- and complexity. It's not something you'll master in a few minutes. But it does have templates for common labeling needs, and if you want to do something that's not obvious, the Help system usually has an answer. It is far superior to the software that came with Brother's TX computer-connected labelers. One of the program's best features is the ability to drag-and-drop text //or images// directly into the label you're creating. I have two gripes. The PT-2730 doesn't take the TX tapes I used with my older machines. Nor does it take 24mm tape. (Only one or two TZ machines do.) For those new to labeling machines -- note that the regular tapes will not stick to polypropylene (eg, buckets, trash cans). The tapes with "high strength" adhesive are required.
