Seems like a fine printer
February 24, 2014
By MVFollowup from Maggie Valley, NC
Seems like a fine printer, but how about giving it a few months to see how it works in the long run?

By CAKLO58 from Rancho Cucamonga CA
Printer functions like said, has all functions I want in a laser color printer, wireless connection and the auto 2 sided printing, fast prints, great color, quiet, great price. Very pleased with the overall performance of this printer. This is my second brother laser printer, they took over my hp laserjet and my samsung clp 315 laser color printer.

Decent color printer
February 17, 2014
By OldTech from Western Washington state
This is a decent color printer with a few caveats. First of all, it is not an inkjet so it has none of the good or bad traits of that type of printer. It is similar to a laser printer and should be compared to those.

Good: The first page finishes in 20 to 25 seconds with the following pages about 3 seconds a part. It prints of both sides of the paper (duplex), first one then the other, quickly. It prints in color. (The toner is fused to the paper so it doesn't run like an inkjet.) Large paper tray. Prints directly onto CDs/DVDs that have (blank) labels on them. It is a complete unit without having to pay extra for duplex printing or a paper tray that will hold more than 100 sheets of paper. Inexpensive.

Bad: The toner is expensive, but cheaper than it could be. (Color toner, just a few years ago, was way too expensive for most home users.) Color reproduction is not that good. Greens seem to be too dark and some other colors are off a bit. I used the installed software to self-calibrate, but it didn't completely fix the problem.

Other: There is a burning smell the first few print jobs, but it goes away and is normal for this type of printer. The instructions, wherever you find them are good, better than most, but they do leave out a few details.

I'm sure that I forgot to mention something, but it isn't important, whatever it was. That's because this digital color printer is the best value that I could find for doing what I need to get done. Aside from some minor points, it does what I need it to do well.
