"has a crippling feature."

Wakkawakkawakka08, CNET
20 April 2012
  • Pros: good quality hardware
  • Cons: If one color of ink is empty, or near empty(which happens alot because this thing EATS ink). The printer will not work. It will scan if you bite around the bush, but it will not print anything.

  • Pros: Faxes, Prints, Scans, Copies fine...

"The reason I give it TWO STARS: photo-quality printouts"

steph6n, CNET
14 January 2011
  • Pros: Photo-quality printouts are excellent Scanning device is excellent Relatively simple interface & installation Fax function is good Software included is good Overall quality of print-on-paper is very good Simple ink replacement
  • Cons: When device runs out of ONE COLOR of ink, it will print NOTHING even if plenty of ink left in other cartridges INCLUDING not printing Black. Ink is prohibitively expensive ($17+ per cartridge). Occasional paper-jam problems despite careful use.

"Great printer for the price."

jerry3333, CNET
11 November 2010
  • Pros: Cheap ink readily available on-line. When ink quality is turned down the finished product will still look good without draining ink. Easy to operate. Does good pictures. Remember it is an in-expensive machine. Good, not pro
  • Cons: Screen hard to see unless well lit and viewed directly. Not a huge issue. Better on newer models.

"The worst piece of garbage ever"

lianne393, CNET
29 June 2010
  • Pros: I have nothing to say
  • Cons: doesn't work with any windows. XP, Vista or 7. Every time I try to print something, anything, this thing never works. It can't even function on it's own as photo copier. It freezes, constantly.

"Do not buy!"

abccoy, CNET
15 June 2010
  • Pros: This product works well enough. No better or worse than any others I have tried.
  • Cons: Brother should be ashamed of this product. It forces you to buy color cartridges just to be able to print in black and white.
