Summary: I purchased this printer a couple of years ago. I had always wanted a laser printer. I have had it about 3 years now. The only thing that I don't care for is the fact that when you buy toner ink, almost, always, you have to purchase a new drum for it also.
Summary: This guy just works. Never jams, sheet feeder works great. It once fell out of the back of a truck, still works. If it says toner empty, just shake the cartridge a bit and proceed to print for a few more months.
Summary: Great Printer! Works great for everything I throw at it and the scanning function is a plus. Software included for Pc and for Mac, so both platforms were able to print and scan without issues.
Nice overall machine, however no FAX or double sided printing.

Summary: Instead of replacing toner & drum in my Brother MFC7420 copier/printer/scanner/fax, it was cheaper to buy a new multi-function machine. However the DCP7040 "all"-in-one does not include a FAX which I must have. Noticed this after I won an E-Bay bid.
Wonderful addition to my home office! Love finding a great deal!

Summary: I was looking for a low priced copy/printer/scanner for personal use. I've used Cannon and Xerox at work but they cost more than I wanted to spend and support was not always helpful or productive. Brother is compact and easy to operate taking up a small space in my small office.
Summary: I bought this printer mainly for its ADF and PDF function. The ADF works well, not slippage, no jamming. However, the create PDF is sort of crude and results in large size files. I configured Acrobat to work with this printer, it worked really well on creating PDF files.
