  • Summary: Don't bother buying a Brother color printer. It's not worth it for a copier or a scanner......just get an HP or some other printer that will work well.
  • Pros: Sending faxes and scanner works good with Paperport. That's the only good stuff about Brother
  • Cons: Print head malfunctions, eats up too much ink. Copier sucks!
