Great Printer But
October 14, 2012
By LookingForGreatProducts from FL
This printer does the following great:
1. Print Balck & White
2. Print color documents
3. Duplex Print
4. Duplex scan with one pass!
5. Copy is good
Here is what is wrong:
1. Printing color photographs is inferior. The color and clarity is just not there.

Could be better
September 20, 2012
By Nobody from California
The printer needs a driver update for air printing from phones/iAds. I am aware of the brother software now available but it is too limited.

It is also very noisy.

Smart Purchase
August 31, 2012
By Carochan from Greater New Orleans, Louisiana
When I decided I wanted quality color copies that wouldn't break my bank, I opted for the MFC9970CDW. It was a smart choice. I have been a long-time Brother user (I owned two MFC8890 monolasers at the same time for school and home).
As a teacher in transition, I will purchase a second MFC9970CDW for my next classroom!

Okay it's big but.....
August 9, 2012
By Frodoboy from California
I've owned the MFC-9840 for several years and loved it but it got semi-destroyed in a fire (it still works by the way). I thought "What am I going to replace it with now?" Then I saw the MFC-9970! This is the logical step up from the MFC-9840.

The MFC-9970 takes much less time to warm up and prints very fast. The MFC-9840 was upstairs and whenever we wanted to print anything, by the time we got up the stairs, the printer was just thinking about getting started. The MFC-9970 has already finished the job when we get up to it. Very fast!!!

The warm up time is much faster and I love that I don't have to wait for a minute just for the scanner to "warm up" when I want to copy something. It only takes a few seconds and it's ready to go!

The print quality of the MFC-9970 is excellent as was the MFC-9840 and it also takes less time to print a double sided sheet. Double sided manuals appear to print almost twice as fast!

The fax is a fax and our country connection is very slow so I can't comment much on that other than it works flawlessly.

The document feeder tray is much faster than the MFC-9840 doing a double sided document in only a few seconds.

The menu is now a lot easier to navigate with the LCD screen and the front panel controls are easy to use although Brother did reverse the black and color scan buttons from the MFC-9840 so that takes a little getting used to if you're coming from the MFC-9840 like I am.

My one complaint, as always with Brother (and almost all other printer manufacturers), is that they put "starter" toner cartridges in their machines so you have to purchase new ones fairly soon if you print a lot. I wish they'd just put standard cartridges in it to start. It is also very BIG but it does so much so well, that is not really a problem if you have the space and unless you have to move it. It is a little lighter than the MFC-9840 though!

All in all, the MFC-9970 is quite an improvement in speed over the MFC-9840 which was a very solid worker for years. I love my new MFC-9970CDW!!
