Summary: True story: Had a presentation at one of our customer's which required printing out several multi-page color document packets. I printed 75% of the packets from my computer (using the MFC-5890CN) and my coworker printed the remainder from his home (using a very cheap and portable HP color printer).
Summary: Got one from costco. Test page wouldn't print black, so called CS & was sent a new one (they needed a credit card to send you a second one, no charges have appeared as long as you send them the old one within 3 days of getting the new one). Anyway, the new one is working fine so far.
Summary: Be warned this printer is NOT COMPATABLE with Windows 7, you will have to go on the Brother web site to get the available upgrade. And then install it on your computer. After all Windows 7 has been out for at least a year.
Summary: I bought this specifically to photocopy and scan. I have not set up the fax so cannot comment on this. Photocopying is quick and easy and produces good copies. I have printed from the computer which gives good results. I have not tried the A3 facility yet. Scanning is more problematic.
good hardware with nice features, pity about the software

Summary: We recently upgraded a lot of our printers in work, with these or variations on this model like the A3 scanner version. As all the installations were straight forward and i've found the hardware to be fairly flexible, when I had to upgrade my home printer I went for one of these.
