Summary: This is the worst printer that I have ever purchased. It is a ink thirsty thief. I didn't know that I was giving Brother stealing rights to my ink supply. I'll never buy another Brother product.
Summary: I had been on strike against inkjets for years. Ever since the days when the all the colors were in one cart and you'd have to throw away 1/2 full carts because one color was gone. Here I thought Brother had resolved that. A cart for each color AND a cart for just black. Sweet...or so I thought.
Summary: The ink jet part is permanently built in. If it becomes clogged and and the cleaning function doesn't fix it then you are sunk. There is no replacing it like you can do with other printers. After less then two years the ink jet is now clogged and cannot be cleared.
Summary: This printer maybe fine for some. But for me I always found myself dissapointed with it. I bought it at circuit city and it said 'Works with your wireless or wired network'. Well yeah it will work with your wireless network if it is wired in. I mean please. Just be honest.
It eats ink. $15 every other month, and I don't print in color.

Summary: Please don't buy this printer/fax. I own a small home-based business, and bought it because I needed the fax. I don't print in color at all. In fact, I've printed less than 5 color pages in the last six months. But I've had to replace the yellow cartridge twice, and 2 of the other colors once.
Summary: It prints, it scans, it works. The cost on ink is absurd and the weight between a full and a "machine declared" empty is 1/10 of an ounce. This complaints hold with all inkjet printers the manufacturers are making more on ink then on printers. If you print a lot spend your money elsewhere.
It is cheap but ink dries up so fast, printer does not work if one of the ink is empty.

Summary: I bought Brother MFC-465CN Inkjet Multi-Function Center. I hardly took 15-20 pages in 2 months period and mostly with black color. Now the CYAN (BLUE) cartridge is empty and the printer won't work even if you want to take printouts with black only.
Summary: Be aware that if even one print cartridge is out of ink, all print functions will stop, even those that require no ink. You will be unable to scan or send a fax. My yellow cartridge is empty after maybe 10 pages. The phone rep.
Summary: The MFC465cn has nice features for the price, but the low price is actually its best feature. My biggest complaints are (1) the paper tray, and (20 the infernal "low ink" or "empty ink" warnings.
