Excerpt: LIKE THIS PRODUCT. ONLY USE THE COPIER FUNCTION. THE ONLY ISSUE IS IT DOES NOT 'HOLD'THE BRIGHTNESS SETTING, SO U GET KINDA GREY COPIES UNLESS YOU CONSTANTLY REFRESH THE SETTING (QUALITY - TO BRIGHTNESS- TO RAISE BAR SCALE - TO OK).OTHERWISE IT PRINTS NICE COPIES, AND ENLARGEMENTS, AND 2 SIDED.
Excerpt: got this unit on sale and it does a great job for the price; however, I did find out what they mean when they say new printers come with "starter" cartridges (already had to replace toner cartridge)
Excerpt: Overall good printer, with all the functions you needed at very low costs. The paper tray frequently report out of paper, but it's not empty, so, after printint a few sheets, it stops, then I won't bother check if there is paper, and press continue, then prints again for a few more sheets then stops. I count the number of sheets between stops, it's not consistant, some times more, some times stops less. I checked the paper possitions and try and everything looks normal.
Pros: good price with many functions
Cons: paper handeling error, paper tray frequent report paper error
Excerpt: This unit was replacing another Brother laser printer that we have. It is roughly the same size, but taller than the Brother HL-2230. The copier and scanner work very well with a nice tray feeder at the top. We have had mixed results from the Brother Toner cartridges over the years. The price isn't that bad, but considering it has a separate drum unit, the continual cost does increase. Some cartridges are extremely dark, others can be rather faint.
