"I'm glad it didn't cost much."

  • Pros: Scans well and prints text like it should. Works well with generic or refilled ink cartridges. (See cons)
  • Cons: Photo printing is rather poor quality. I have never seen a printer waste ink the way this thing does. Even if you don't turn it on, it will empty the ink cartridges all by itself during the "cleaning cycles" .

  • Pros: full featured, easy to use & compact.
  • Cons: 1: brothers Control center 3 software needs work. 2. Printing images is very slow & color accuracy really sucks. Don't expect vibrant colors or rich blacks even using Brother's glossy photo paper. 3. will not print if one color cartridge is empty.

"Convenient Features vs. Awful Consumption and Bugginess"

paladrache, CNET
23 November 2008
  • Pros: Cheap machine, all-in-one convenience. Auto-feeding scanner, multimedia card reader, good customer service.
  • Cons: Ridiculous ink consumption. Printer blew through volumes of ink in a short time and disallowed printing if any of the cartridges were "empty" (i.e., quarter-full). Scanner didn't work out of the box, requiring some customer service intervention.
