Decent printing but colors are dull. Even black doesn't rich.

  • Excerpt: Negative:* Black text and prints comes out looking dark gray (no matter what I do, it come sout gray). I compared the same print out when my older HP printer and yes, there is a huge difference in the black tone.  HP gave a  more richer black color. Brother's seems diluted.* No USB cable provided (Like selling a car with no steering wheel)* Printer uses INK to clean itself. 2-3 times a month. Even when the printer is OFF. ???

  • Excerpt: This Brother printer is fantastic for people on a budget!  After years of paying big bucks for multifunction laser machines, I found myself in the market for a simple, low volume device to print a few things in color. This machine fits the bill perfectly.  It was simple to set up, its easy to operate and has a sleep mode to reduce power consumption.  After six months I've only had to change one cartridge.
