Summary: This printer runs well and run nearly silent. I wish the led screen had back lighting since this is hard to read without additional room lighting. The toner cartridge is easy to install and replace. Any operator caused paper jams have been very easy to correct. It doesn't have any network capability outside of connecting to a network connected computer and in my case windows sharing.
Summary: I have owned this printer for over a month......It is quieter than I expected based upon some earlier reviews. The set-up was a little more than anticipated because my MacBook Pro has OS X 10.9.2 and the software that came with the CD was an earlier version. The Brother support desk was very helpful and walked me through down loading the software update to make the printer work with my operating system. I am very pleased with the speed of the printer.
Summary: I have used brother printers for years. This replaced a brother mfc 210 ink jet that gave up the gost after six years. This laser printer is pretty basic and requires usb connectivity. The set up was realitevly easy. It is attached to a Macpro laptop. Although the supplied disk did not cover the operating system of my mac. the laptop automatically when on line to find the updated software. The printer prints just fine. The double sided printing is a plus.
Summary: Repetitive carriage jams drove me crazy with my previous printer--- although I miss having color copies, the quick good quality printing with this Brother printer and the ability to do duplex copying for larger jobs is great.
Excerpt: Set up was fairly easy but-- buyer beware-- even though this is not a wireless printer the cable from computer to printer is not provided. We did not want a wireless printer because we read that wireless printers compromise your privacy because they have to go around your firewall. We think that Brother should include this needed cable and with that change we would give this product a 5 star rating.
Include a USB a-b cable in your order (it was cheaper online and saves the hassle of looking for one in the shops)!

Summary: I was using this printer regularly back home (in another country) and liked it a lot so I decided to buy the same model when I recently moved for college. After I received it I realised it didn't include the required USB a-b cable (the manual checklist did not include it too, so it wasn't missing) so I had to go hunt for it in the shops before I could start printing from my laptop.
