DO NOT PURCHASE!
October 7, 2014
By Amber from Roy, Utah
I have received an error message from day one with my printer (DRUM!) Finally I got sick of taking the steps to clear the error, and called "customer service" what a joke! I was expected to take my machine to the nearest service center; located about an hour away with out any promise this would correct the issue. After 3 more calls to the "customer service" department I was told of a presidents line I could contact to resolve my issues. They did send me a new printer with little trouble. Unfortunately the printer they sent worked for about 1 week. Now I cant even trouble shoot the problem. My printer is just dead in the water. Lucky for me I can now repurchase new drum units for more than the price of the machine. This will be the LAST brother product I purchase for my company.

Good for the price.

By Stark from Apple Valley, California
Bought it to use the wireless capability with my lap top. Does an excellent job. Be aware during set up, if not all doors are tight shut, it will not print, and when you close the loose door, all the trial copies will come out at once. It has a large memory. I just wish it were a little easier to switch between double sided and single, like my Samsung.

Good printer

It does a great job on printing and I like the duplex. Easy to set up wireless network.
Only downside - it really eats up toner

Good Band for the Buck
August 13, 2014
By VideoPro from Baltimore, MD
I bought this Brother color laser printer after finally being fed up with my older inkjet printer taking too long, using too much ink and dealing with paper jams. I did some research and found that for the price, this printer fit my needs, and more. I use it mostly for printing DVD case labels, which I do a lot of. It is fast and prints great color labels. I am not using it to print my photos (I am keeping my inkjet for that) but for everything else, it is great. Only complaint is that since I use A4 paper for the labels, the plastic paper stopper on top really does not give enough room for this longer paper. I leave it down and let the labels fall onto the table. Also, the 4 ink cartridges it came with did not not last as long as I thought they would and the replacement ink is not cheap but it is easy to replace. You just have to use common sense and do not print a lot of deep, dark colors for your labels if you want to save on ink. It has a great menu system which is easy to navigate. For instance, I recently was able to figure out how much ink is available for each of the 4 toner cartridges via the menu system, without having to print 3 pages of the Print Settings any more. It seems to be built solid and I expect it to give me many years of great service.
