I've actually got my eye on that one for an upgrade in the future. 
There's another nifty trick I picked up about Brother toner cartridges. 
They use an infrared beam to determine when the toner cartridge is 
empty. The toner level goes low enough to allow the beam and - out of 
toner. However, it's barely at 50% capacity at this point so you can 
cover the holes on the cartridge with tape and actually run the toner 
all the way out.

I do fairly light printing, but I'm still on the original cartridge 
going on 2 years now. I print about 40 pages a month at this point, when 
I bought the printer I had a need to print more often.
