Summary: I LOVE this series of printers/fax machines! One huge reason is because the ink is SUPER WAY CHEEP!!!! Believe it or not, you can get 4 black and 2 of each of the color cartridges for LESS than $10.00 AND the cartridges last quite some time to boot!
Summary: The printer was overall in good shape, however, when I set it up to use there was an error. 49 to be exact meaning that unless this error was cleared, it would not work. It then became useless to me and for the money it was a lousy deal. When I sent it back, it cost me over $30 in return shipping.
Summary: I have used this for several years. The thing I don't like about it is that you have to have full ink on every color in order to print. Most printers you can say "print in black only" and keep printing to finish your project immediately until you can get to the store to buy ink. Not on this printer.
Summary: All of the positive reviews of this printer are correct about the print quality and the convenience of wireless, but many of them fail to mention that this printer is extremely unreliable. Firstly, the wireless often disconnects for no apparent reason, and I really do mean "for no apparent reason.
Summary: I have owned this unit for about two years. In the first few weeks I was in love, then, my relationship quickly became abusive, with me being the abused! Just FYI I only use Brother ink and I use a Mac-Book Pro.
Summary: I have had a truly fantastic experience with this printer, which I have owned for I believe 3+ years and it is still going strong. I would also like to say that I have found Brother technical support to be very helpful as well - very easy to reach, pretty knowledgeable, kind, and helpful.
This printer is a Nightmare. It won't stop beeping

Summary: All I have to do is scan 3 pages. That's it. I've been pulling my hair out for the last half hour trying to get it to just stop beeping and rotating and cleaning and sputtering. I'm seriously late in sending a document I was supposed to have scanned and turned in 30 minutes ago but finally said...

Summary: There is always that worry, when looking around for the best deal, of getting what you pay for. Thankfully a lower price point doesn't always equate with an inferior product. This all-in-one printer/fax machine/copier/scanner is a bargain for the price. That it is wireless is icing on a great cake.
Obstinately refuses to function in any way unless all ink is full

Summary: Apparently the marketing folks over at Brother had their hand in designing this one, because if any color is depleted, the printer will refuse to function -- I presently have a full black ink cartridge, but, because magenta and cyan are gone, the thing not only won't print black and white, it won't...
Does not last, and obnoxiously 'cleans' itelf until the ink runs out.

Summary: Ours worked ok for maybe 6 months, but then after that I couldn't rely on it. Some days the black would work but not the color, or vice versa, for no apparent reason. Sometimes cleanings helped, sometimes resetting power helped. Sometimes replacing ink cartridges helped. Sometimes nothing helped.
