Summary: This is a nice printer - with one deal-breaker: It uses an insane amount of ink to clean itself!! I print color copies very infrequently as I also have an HP Laser printer on the same network. I use the HP for 99% of my printing (and I don't even use the HP that often!
Summary: In case you don't believe the rest of the reviewers, this printer is HORRENDOUS!!!! Brother has done a great job at creating a scam with their ink cartridges. Hopefully, people have caught on and have decided to ditch this piece of JUNK!
Summary: This printer was very frustrating...until I figured out how to "beat the system". When I could not figure out why the color cartridges kept running out,(when we don't EVER print anything in color) I called Brother technical support to no avail.
Summary: This printer seems great at first, but will annoy you to death in the long term. The main issues are: 1) -NOTHING- on the printer works once the printer is out of ink. You can't send faxes, scan, or print B+W if any one of the ink colors is out.
Summary: I'm not exactly sure why the "Spotlight" reviews for this printer are so positive. Take everyone else's word for it - This printer sucks. I made the mistake of buying 5440 and the 5840 for my business. I can deal with all the paper jams just fine.
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...
Summary: Incredibly poor user's Manual. Nothing on how to use the scanner function (refers you the CD -- most multi-use machines have a very easy to use scanning function -- NOT this one! Paper jams easily. Response time is slow. Printing quality has been the least satisfactory of any I've evwer used.
Summary: I bought this printer less than a month ago and its already not working right. The paper keeps jamming.The paper tray is jammed and won't come out of the printer. I tried using the other paper feed and I get the same response that the paper is jammed.
Summary: I purchased this machine for use in a small business, and though less than a year has passed since purchasing it, we have been forced to requst replacement units twice already. It suffers from constant paper jams, apparently both because of proximity of the paper feed to the output tray, and (more...
Summary: The MFC 5440CN purported to have all of the features I could want: networked scanning, faxing, and printing at an affordable price. And I could even use it on my Linux system thanks to the drivers from Brother. My hope in this product has been steadily diminished.
