"Total Garbage"

Urban Terrorist, CNET
15 August 2009
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Windows Driver will not install even if firewall and anti-virus are off (Brother's suggestion - unprotect my computer) Docs say to turn off suspend when printer connected so I can waste power If black cart not plugged in and full will not work ARGH!

"POS Had 4, all have ink blockage issues."

  • Pros: I liked the separate ink cartridges for each color. Actually had reasonably ink usage amounts.
  • Cons: First two I had, Brother replaced due to blockage in ink (red). Replacements now down due to same problem (red on one, yellow on other). Program has a glitch in it that will not allow my computer to crank up if the printer is turned on!!!!!

Read the reviews, then DON'T buy this printer.

Nick Maccarrone "Nick", Amazon
21 March 2007
  • Summary: The printing is fine. The ink usage is as other people have stated, it is completely absurd. Brother has outdone themselves with this piece of garbage... I print with color so infrequently, maybe 10 pages total in the time that I've owned this printer (about a year) have been color and I've had to replace the color cartridges on numerous occasions.
