Does *everything* we need, well
July 29, 2015
By LarryW from San Jose, CA
Love this printer.

It does absolutely *everything* we need (except print high-quality photos, for which we keep a dedicated photo printer). Laser? check. Color? check. Duplex? check. Inexpensive? Compared to competition, yes.

I also really appreciate that the software driver includes a checkbox for "Black & White", which I use for printouts that don't require color (so don't waste color toner).

This printer replaced a Dell color laser printer, with which I was NOT happy. It didn't do duplex, didn't have a B&W option, and after owning it for 6 months or so started making a horrible clatter and stopped working. Poor quality.

We have owned 5 Brother (B&W) laser printers over the last approx 12 years, and EVERY SINGLE ONE of them is still working!

Works on Linux
July 28, 2015
By konsultor from Fairfax, VA
Brother provides software drivers for Linux and updates them, making this printer a good choice for the Linux community. The installation process could be explained better, and the prompts on the installation software are confusing (took several tries to make the proper choices).
The printer itself is just what was needed for a home office: compact, quick, good color. There have been two major breakdowns in the machinery, but Brother repaired and replaced parts without charge even beyond the standard warranty period.

Very good value
July 27, 2015
By Potter from Northwest
I have used this printer as my main printer for about two months replacing an older HP multifunction printer. I am very happy with the speed, quality and economy of using this printer. I am glad I purchased it.

Great Printer
July 21, 2015
By chenkelm from Virginia
I really like this printer. I love that I can print wirelessly, it is incredibly convenient to print from the laptop or phone. It prints fast and has good quality. I don't print fancy documents, so I cant say for certain that type of quality, but for all of my needs it has done really well.
