Summary: I don't understand why everyone here posts saying this is only a "so-so" printer. I have this printer on our home network. Every computer can print to it, fax to it, and use it as a scanner. Now I do not have to get each of my kids a printer, they can all access this one.
Summary: This is the second 5860CN that I have had and it satisfies my home/office needs at a real resonable price. I am able to get my faxes, scan and copy as needed. Since my business is small, this works into my routine without paying for options I don't need at this time.
Summary: Arived timely, perfect condition. Performs flawlesly once set up and familiarized. Mine is partly shared use in a small, 4 person real estate office. Love the two trays for automatic letter & legal size printing without changing paper, a feature hard to find in this price range.
Summary: I've had no luck connecting this printer wirelessly. Oh yeah, I got it to work once! Then for no reason it would not connect. I spent several days trying to troubleshoot both on my own and with tech support. Finally bought ethernet cable and it STILL WOULDNT WORK.
Summary: We purchased this item October 2006 for a one person office. It is only used for 10-20 copies per week. The black ink cartridge will not print anything. We've replaced the cartridge twice, cleaned the print heads, have gone back and forth with customer service and now will need to take into a repair...
Summary: I owned and used an earlier model of this printer and it was very good and highly reliable. Based on this use I decided to upgrade to the Brother MFC-5860 Photo Inkjet machine. It is very good and I am glad I selected this item.
