Makes copies but toner expensive for what you get.

Summary: It has to do with the toner cartridge. I purchased a TN-450 cartridge that is promoted to last for (up to) 2600 pages. It only lasted for 955 pages before fading out. Not even half! I called Brother Company and the representative told me that the 2600 pages is based on only 150 words per page.
Summary: Be aware that this machine has no fax capabilities. Maybe my standards are too high, but this machine takes a long time to print the first page, and subsequent pages come slowly too. With 3-holed paper, the duplex jams nearly every try.
Summary: I have a Brother MCF8870-DW that we've used in our office for years and it's been a work horse and uses very little toner. I needed a smaller printer for an office that we just use occasionally and purchased this model since I was so happy with Brother.
Excerpt: Have worked with Brother office products in the past so I was excited to add this multi-function unit to our busy office environment. However, I was VERY disappointed when it came to the frequency with which we had to replace toner cartridges.
Summary: You have to use a strict sequence when printing envelopes. You have to click "Print" on your computer, then place the envelope in the manual slot, wait until you begin to feel it pull the envelope.
Summary: As soon as I plugged in the printer, I knew it was not going to work out. The cooling fan turns on as soon as you plug it in, and it will not turn off for 15 minutes (according to Brother tech support). They said this is necessary to cool the fuser.
Summary: Alors que Brother a réussi à faire rentrer toutes ces fonctions dans une machine aussi compacte (notamment un module recto-verso), il est vraiment dommage que la machine fasse autant de bruit en veille.
Summary: Nous avons acheté 2 imprimantes pour des raisons professionnels en remplacement du même modèle d'une génération antérieure (DCP 7040). Déception de voir qu'avec la cartouche vendue avec nous n'avons pu faire que 568 copies.
