I love it.
February 20, 2014
By PourQuoiPas from RI
We remodeled our office and went to a clean desktop including the new MAC all in one computer. There was no place for a printer in this new sterile environment so I installed this in a cabinet draw and it functions faultlessly in a wireless environment.
Refilling paper is the only difficult operation but this printer holds enough for months the way we use the printer.
Install was a snap and all went well.

Great Compact Unit
February 19, 2014
By Amazonian from NY
Takes minimal foot print and print speed is very fast, including duplex printing. Wish the paper tray was larger. Only problem was wireless connection to the Mac, however, Brother's excellent telephone support got me up and running in less than 10 minutes. PC wireless connection was simple, no tech support needed here. Replacement toner cartridge is reasonably priced. Recommend for home, home office and dorms.

Very good, with a caveat: InDesign Oddity
February 18, 2014
By Momo from Berkeley, CA
Got this unit to replace 2 HP printers and I will never, ever go back. I really like this machine! The imaging is good and the duplexing (double siding) works reliably (unlike the HPs), though is not perfectly centered (maybe 1/32 off).
While this is a plastic printer, it is well-manufactured and I have never experienced a jam. Works well with envelopes too. After years with finicky printers, I literally smile at this one.
As you may know, printers handle vectors and bitmaps differently. I got this printer partially for printing books and booklets. I know, atypical use. When I print from standard word processors (Apple's Pages–the Microsoft Word of the Mac universe, Bean, Text Edit, etc.) the text is printed as vectors: perfectly crisp. But for some reason the default compile for InDesign documents is as a bitmap: the text is not crisp but particled.
It is possible to change a setting in the print dialog menus to indicate a document that is mostly text rather than graphics, but I still have not found the text output from InDesign (which is industry standard for books and magazines) to be as sharp as the text from lowly word processors.
Seems to be the same issue with PDFs, but I cannot state that universally.
I am not sure if this is Adobe's issue or Brother's issue, but it has me considering whether or not to relayout a whole series of books in Pages just to be able to use this printer. I like this printer that much! Quality is great, and for half the cost of prints at the copy shop.
I have not yet exhausted the demo toner, so cannot speak to longevity.

great but flawed machine
February 17, 2014
By 8305
This machine is great. It delivers clear copies and never jams.
The flaw I refer to is the 8.8 amp power surge it creates when printing is initiated causes my 15 amp circuit to blow unless I turn out several lights prior to printing.
