    1 out of 5 eggs Rosewill DR620 Black Drum unit

    Pros: Good price
    Fast Delivery

    Cons: Unit worked well for the first 10 days. Image quality has since been degrading steadily and I have since ordered a Brother manufactured drum. When I contacted Rosewill (Newegg) I was told it would be covered under warranty if it was returned in the original packaging. Unfortunately I had discarded the packaging when I saw it was working as advertised.

    Bottom Line: When purchasing from Newegg, and probably most other mail order sources, hold on to the original packaging until the warranty period is up.

    4 out of 5 eggs Sensitive

    Pros: Quality seems comparable to the name brand. Prints a nice, clean page, when it's working. I've been replacing the drums faster than the toner cartridges, and it's still cheaper than an inkjet.

    Cons: These drums are sensitive--not just the Rosewill brand, but the Brother drums, too. We've run less than 10,000 pages through our HL-5340D, and I'm currently ordering our 3rd drum. The first one started covering the printouts in ink splotches, apparently due to a staple getting run through. Understandable. The most recent drum got ruined by a creased piece of paper, that I simply ran through the printer a couple of times. Kind of disappointing.

    Bottom Line: Moral of the story: don't skimp on paper. Double check for any imperfections (i.e. staples) before running it through the machine, and avoid manually duplexing.

    4 out of 5 eggs Have not purchased yet

    Pros: -

    Cons: -

    Bottom Line: I have not purchased yet, so I cannot comment on the print quality. Some other posts mention drum life issues after installing. I own the HL-5370DW printer. With that unit and per the manual directions, I was able to open the front door and press the Go button (while the door was still open) until all lights were lit. After releasing, the drum life is reset. I believe the page count is stored in the printer not in the drum. Maybe that printer needs a firmware update.

    2 out of 5 eggs Drum does not seem as good as the real deal.

    Pros: Price.

    Cons: I did a few test prints with this drum. They looked OK (but maybe not great). Then I took the drum out of the machine, put it in an opaque plastic bag, and put it in a closet for about a month. I did not seal the bag. The closet is dark, but it has a light and occasionally the light is on for as much as a few hours. The light is not especially bright, and the bag with the drum was not directly under the light or in a position that seemed likely to get a lot of light exposure. When I went to use the drum again, I found that print outs did not look very good. The blacks of graphics were only 80 to 90 percent black. I also noticed a thin stripe down the page where images appeared faint. So was the drum damaged by light exposure, or was it just not a very good drum? I suspect the latter. This drum might be fine for school and business reports. But when quality really is required, this is not a drum I would use. For best results, pay the extra and get the genuine Brother drum.

    4 out of 5 eggs It Works!

    Pros: It works great, just as it is supposed to work.

    Cons: I replaced my old drum with this one when it had 16% life on it and this one it appears to have the same (inherited) 16% left in it. How long it will last only time will tell....

    Bottom Line: Great product for the price compared.
