Excerpt: Bought this to make everyone happy! It could fax, copy & scan! After two weeks it would pirnt nice copies but fax feed broke! We only used the fax function perhaps a dozen times before it gave up. It also seemed very expensive from a cost per page with color. WE found ourselves replacing a different color ink cartridge very often.
Excerpt: First, the black ink comes out as dark gray at best, even when printing in the best mode. And print time is not fast. The most irritating thing, though, is that the scanner will not work with my new iMac. I specifically checked for Mac compatibility before buying this printer, but I guess it is only compatible through Tiger. It does not work with Leopard. It prints, but I can not get the scanner to work. I haven't tried the fax yet.
Excerpt: I wanted the Brother MFC-465CN to cover some modest needs. While it was inexpensive to buy, that is where the savings end. The setup was easy, whether for local use or networked except that the documentation was sparse. This made it hard to find where to connect the USB cable. Fortunately, there are videos online (locate through search engines). The print is ok, not fabulous. While legible, it lacks crispness and intensity. Speed did perform within expectations.
Summary: I bought this printer for its networking capabilities. However I found that configuring this printer for my home network to be a nightmare. After I wasted many hours on the project I just gave up and hooked it up via USB. At least that way it works on ONE of my computers.
Summary: You will be disappointed in this printer. It promises much but delivers poorly. The most annoying thing is its inability to do really basic things...
1) constant jams (when picture printing)
2) general misfeeding of paper
3) often feeds multiple pages at a time (making duplex printing nearly impossible since it constantly turns out wrong)
For a printer with so many features it should have a software feature for printing duplex (telling you how to put...
