"it was cheap and i got what i paid for."

cgwordsmith, CNET
4 January 2011
  • Pros: It was cheap. It connects via USB. Scanner/printer takes the place of 2 desk items. It was to replace a much loved and still working flatbed-scanner which was so old it didn't connect via USB, sadly.
  • Cons: Controls are less than user-friendly, in fact they are so confusing I still can't figure out how to work it. I still can't figure out how to change the resolution of a scan, if it is even possible... I HATE THIS SCANNER.

"Ripoff, errors, refuses to print so you buy more toner"

Nakeeky, CNET
18 February 2013
  • Summary: This is a disgustingly awful horrible printer! THE WORST I have ever used. Constant errors, uses ALL of the ink for "cleaning" and then complains that the ink cartridges are empty, I need to URGENTLY print and this piece of... is just "ERROR ERROR ERROR ERROR!" I'm raging right now. I've had to cover a spot on ALL of the cartridges with stickers to fake a full cartridge read-out so it doesn't just refuse to print all together because "ink is too low to print" WRONG you...
  • Pros: Scanning. Thank god I didn't pay for it (gift, before you judge)
  • Cons: Will not print 99% of the time, thinks up an error and doesn't work

  • Summary: Hopeless printer. Software is hopeless. First cartridges ran out very quickly when I replaced them with new genuine Brother cartridges black wont print.? It's a known issue on the web and the solution appears to be throw away your new printer. Absolutely bummed by this piece of crap. Do not buy it under any circumstances!
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Plenty

  • Summary: Let me down badly when I needed to print an airline E-Ticket urgently. The Yellow ink was empty but no worries (I thought!) I'll print it in Black. Followed all the instructions to no avail. After several frustrating hours called Brother Support to be told I shouldn't have removed and replaced the Yellow cartridge(the same empty one) before I changed the print preferences. That screws up the printer so it won't print at all until the Yellow is replaced.
  • Pros: Er... leave it with me
  • Cons: Complex instructions with traps for the unwary

Esko, Dooyoo

  • Conclusion: überteuerte Patronen mit einer Tintenverweigerungsfunktion, geplante Obsoleszenz schlechthin
  • Pros: Kopiert zuverlässig
  • Cons: USB-Funktion mangelhaft, druckt nur wenn ALLE Tinten eingesetzt sind

Recomendo com Louvor!

  • Summary: Estava procurando uma alternativa entre uma marca cujos cartuchos eram caros e outra que tinha facilidade de entupir a cabeça de impressão. Assim cheguei à Brother e resolvi apostar, e posso afirmar que foi a melhor coisa que fiz! Quem dera ter descoberto antes!
  • Pros: Entre os pontos positivos estão a velocidade, a boa qualidade do scanner, o software de reconhecimento de OCR e a facilidade em adaptar cartuchos recarregáveis sem necessidade de resetá-los. Outros pontos fortes são o fato de as folhas ficarem guardadas numa gaveta interna e a impressora ocupar pouco espaço comparada às outras multi-funcionais. O menu frontal mostra num pequeno LCD as principais funções, assim como o status do aparelho. A tampa do scanner permite que...
  • Cons: Ainda não encontrei nesse 1 ano e meio de uso!
