Good printer, low cost copies

discriminating, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I like the multi functionality of this printer.  It provides great quality for an all-in-one purchased for less than $100.  The cost per page printed is ultra compatetitive, too.  Only problem is that once the ink jets become clogged or the printhead wears, it is time to buy another printer, just like the HP printers.  If it wasn't for the frequency of replacement, these printers would be superb.

Great Multi Function Device for the Price

  • Excerpt: I acquired this mutli function device mostly as a cost-effective color inkjet printer that would give me the ability to copy, scan and fax when I needed to.  All in all, this is a economically priced printer that is easy to use and easy to maintain.Installation on both Macs and Windows is very easy and the updated drivers are easily available on Brother's website.

  • Summary: This is a nice, inexpensive all-purpose printer/fax for a home office. I like being able to just replace one color of ink as it gets depleted. Fairly simple to set up and easy to run.

Perhaps researching longevity of Brother ink jets is in order?

  • Summary: I have a clogged printhead at about 6 months of moderate use. I would research Brother MFC longevity before buying.
  • Pros: Lots of features. Computer to MFC interface works well.
  • Cons: Head is clogged (black) after about 6 months of use. Will attempt warranty remedy.

Works as advertised

The Analyst, Amazon
2 July 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this to replace my MFC420CN. It works pretty much the same way and uses the same ink. My MFC420CN lasted only one year and three months. The printhead belt came off the sprockets and I had to open the machine to put it back. Unfortunately the black ink stopped working afterwards. I hope the belt does not come loose on this printer.
