Summary: Once this printer starts printing the speed is fine, but the warmup and the time to print out a first page is agonizingly slow. The price point was appealing for this model but frankly we wouldn't buy it again.
Summary: I've owned this unit for 21 months, and I'm giving it away. At 1600 pages, it started giving "out of toner" messages, even though the toner cartridges all had plenty of toner remaining. Apparently it's a timer or some such that causes the warning.
Excellent. Brother is the way to go for office machines.

Summary: We've had this multi-function for five years now and continue to be impressed both by it, and by the support we've received from Brother. The print quality is excellent, the supplies last a very long time, and as a whole the machine is a real workhorse.
Summary: First let me say I've had mine for about 2 years and have not had any problems. I had VISTA originally and am now using WINDOWS 7. The online Brothers site has a download update for Windows 7. Startup time is long, so this system is not the best for low volume/infrequent use.

Summary: I'll cut to the chase, this thing is awesome. works as advertised, and exceeded expectation. Also, at the price I got it here on Amazon, it could not be beat. (I have a stick and believe me I tried).
Summary: I have had this printer for over a year and I have to say that overall, I have been disappointed. The print quality is adequate, but overall the unit just does not perform up to the standards of its major competitors. My two main complaints are: 1. The unit jams a lot.
Summary: Have had this unit for a couple of months, it replaced a new piece of useless plastic masquerading as a printer by Xerox. It's great! No problem with drivers for W7, auto download upon hookup. Unpacking, quickstart instructions easy to follow. Everything works great!
Summary: I got mine on sale for $300 so it was a great deal. It replaced an inkjet printer that was rated at the same speed. However, this printer is about 300% faster for me. I print a lot of business quality text with images that took forever to print on the inkjet.
Summary: as a family- we use this to print a variety of stuff...it's quick and easy and everything comes out fantastic. why spend super big bucks if you just need a quick and crisp laser copy? i would recommend this to anyone using it for a small business and/or family.
