Article note: Oh damn it, my M254dw is on the "no longer accepts 3rd party toner after Nov. update" list. I don't have a stock of 3rd party cartridges, and don't recall if I turned off updates, but it's still _infuriating_. I was recommending HPs after Samsung got out of the printer market, but it looks like Brother is the least-asshole standing. The whole Internet-of-Shit hardware-as-a-service scam really needs to be aggressively punished.
