A worthy purchase
June 8, 2015
By SysAdmin from Michigan
I use Brother products at my office daily, we have machines that are upwards of 10 years old still going strong, so I figured looking at a color laser for home was a good idea. Our ink-jet (name brand) gets used very little and the cost of replacement cartridges plus my time to constantly try to keep it working was far greater than the cost of this machine which I can leave sit for months and not worry about drying up. It does not have the photo-print quality of the name brand ink jet but that was not the reason to purchase, I purchased for reliability and it delivers.

Perfect for my Needs
June 7, 2015
By Yvette from Albuquerque, NM
I am a university student, and this printer is exactly what I need it to be. The internal duplexing reduces my paper use, and I love that I can print color. It warms up and prints fast enough for me, even though my printing is sporadic. So far, it has been flawless. The color is not art quality, but good given that that's not what this printer is for. (I have high standards!)

Not the Best Drivers or Support for Google Cloud
June 5, 2015
By TreyNTX69 from San Antonio, TX
If you're planning on using this printer from a Chrome OS device, or remotely or via a mobile device (Google Cloud Print)... you're going to have issues with the printer continually needing to be re-registered with the Google Cloud (which you can only do while on your home network). Also the Mobile print drivers and Google Cloud Print drivers have no option for 2-sided printing. These are 2 of the main reasons I purchased this printer, so I am pretty disappointed. Other than that, the toner cartridges are quite small and have to be purchased frequently even with minimal printing.

Very Nice Printer
June 4, 2015
By FTCSSN from Washington
PRO: Works great with IOS devices. Wireless use and set-up very user friendly. Print Quality is excellent. Print speed is also very nice.

CONS: A little on the noisy side but not terrible.
As with anything to do with printing the ink or toner is a little on the pricey side.
