Summary: I've used Brother products mostly at work and found them to be functional no-nonsense products with the right features for SOHO (small office / home office) users. Although the feeder of our workplace Brother MFC device is busted...
Summary: This replaced a Brother MFC210 and Canon MP160 at home. Things I like: Cheap--Consumer Reports rated this as one of the cheapest (i.e., ink) to use. Compact--note the picture--no external paper feed or trough sticking out. It's all inside! I LIKE my desk space.
Summary: Our purchase on 04/08/2008 was well worth it. It has a real fax machine unlike so many of them that can't run without the computer or won't send multiple pages. This is the first color copier we ever had before that makes high quality copies fast without the computer running.
Summary: I've had my all-in-one for approximately 4 years and my only complaint was the over consumption of ink! Also, if any of the color cartridges run out of ink then then unit will not print (even if you have a full black cartridge).
Summary: So far, this is a very good all in one printer. I haven't used all the functions, but the ones I have worked well. It was relatively easy to set up, and the wireless networking is very cool. (Several laptops use the printer.)I also like the individual ink tanks.
Summary: We use this on a SOHO network as our utility printer/fax/copier and have been very pleased with it. Reasonably easy to set up and use. The print quality is quite good, but not fantastic, more than adequate for normal usage.
Summary: The price is low compared to other manufacturers and the quality of print is fantastic. Most of all, I like the four separate ink cartridges so I can easily check which one needs to be replaced soon. Also the price of ink cartridge is not expensive. One drawback is it is a little bit noisy.
Summary: I just hooked my new MFC-465cn up and ran it through all the features. You need to be sure to get the paper into the ADF "just right" or it won't feed. If it does feed, it seems to be fast enough.
