Summary: There were some issues with the product at delivery and we were truly impressed with how quickly and fully the service unit addressed our concerns to our 100 % satisfaction. I would certainly return to this vendor.
Summary: I have always bought HP printers in the past, because I thought they were the best overall quality. I had a PSC model which was always problematic connecting to my Mac. Many times it would not recognize my Mac so printing was hit or miss. My next one i bought was an HP 5110 multifuction (with a sheet feeder, no flatbed). It was pretty good, but had printer errors. the printer kept displaying a paper jam and would not respond to anything i tried.
Summary: First of all, there are few, or maybe no other printers out there that you can just hook up to your network and just start using. Mind you, if you have a print server (Usually if bought separate this is about sixty to seventy dollars) this is not an issue, but many print servers only make the print part of the multifunction machine useful and do not include the scanner for network availability.
Summary: This is probably one of the best values out there in a MFC. It connects to your home network and enables all the functions (scan, print, FAX) through your network and this unit. Most others only will yet you print or require an expensive add on card. Another important aspect of this uint is the fact that it's multi-platform and works seemlessly with PC's and Mac's (and I beleive there is a Linux driver as well). This was the most important thing for me.
Summary: First off, I'd just like to say that the review by G. Long "letranger66" below shouldn't even be here. It's a MFC-3820CN, NOT a MFC-5440CN; he should write the review for that product, not this one because the inkjet technology is TWO complete generation apart. The MFC-5440CN uses the latest cartridge design by brother, the LC-51 series, and the ink cartridges fit into a futuristic area on the southeast corner of the printer, completely apart from the actual print head.
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.
Summary: Any Brother MFC model that will not print because one cartridge is out of ink can be overridden by putting black tape on the front of the empty cartridge. (See fixyourownprinter.com for details.) The MFC if a terrific buy at $84. I've had an MFC for about a year. It prints well and is a very good copy machine. I have not used the fax. I like the MFC. Some have problems with the print head, but Brother seems to covering this pretty well.
Summary: Deciros que poseo esta impresora multifunción,y la cual me esta dando muy buenos resultados, lo mismo a la hora de imprimir desde internet,como el escaner digital es estupendo, a la hora de enviar faxes ,estupenda,sin ningun problema facil de usar,y siempre visible el display indicandote que operacion estas haciendo.
Summary: Me parece una muy buena elección, para un uso moderado. En cuanto a fiabilidad, he de decir, que en más de un año, no me ha dado ningún problema y prácticamente no se atasca. Si lo ha hecho, casi siempre ha sido por mi culpa. Es bastante económica en cuanto a precio y repuestos, ya que los cartuchos cuestan hasta un 50% menos si los comparamos con otras marcas (alrededor de 15 euros).
