Hands down brother makes the best all in one.

jeremy, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I've owned two brother all in ones and very happy with the product and price. Can't be beat. Ink cartridges are readily available Amazon for very cheap if you look hard enough and last. The two printers i've owned, i believe, have been discontinued.

Like it so far

David S., Newegg
1 December 2010
  • Summary: Don't know if it scans via the Network connection, the USB works fine for scanning so I didn't check into scanning across the network.
  • Pros: Quick and easy installation. Clean driver installation without a bunch of extra junk. Unlike some other brands that I have tried, this was a really hand-off installation. At our house we access this over wired Ethernet from 3 desktops and 3 laptops and it works great. That includes a mix of WinXP...
  • Cons: Having to route the network and USB cable through an internal channel seems a bit uneccessary and is a hassle. This would be a headache if you had to disconnect cables from the device frequently.

Excellent Printer

Caitlin D., Newegg
19 August 2010
  • Pros: Very reliable network printer. The ink in this printer last longer than any other inkjet that I have owned. My wife is in college and she is constantly printing things, and I run my own business so I just print invoices and things like that. It must have taken 8-9 months to run outta ink. Fax is ...
  • Cons: If you plan on printing photos do not get this printer! Photo print quality is rather poor, it's not the worst I've seen but I certainly would not recommend it.

Love this all in one / Great preformance, low operating cost.

Lance L. Scheafnocker, Amazon

  • Summary: I am very impressed at the longevity of the ink cartridges of this machine, bought this at the end of April this year have run off at least 200 plus copy's and have not had to replace the ink cartridges yet. On my Lexmark 7100 I would have done a replacement twice by now.

The Second One is Great So Far

Anonymous, Newegg
26 May 2010
  • Summary: My first one could not finish Setup - black would not print - but Newegg's RMA went as well as anyone could want. The second one setup perfectly in just a few minutes, including the network. I can compare this to my HP OJet 6500 (wired) which has similar basic specs.
  • Pros: easy installation, good (basic) software, easy and sensible networking and use
  • Cons: Not really, because I expected it, but the blackness I want in type requires a setting of Norma,l not Fast like for other printers. However, ink use seems no worse (maybe better) than other printers, so far.

Awesome machine - everything I needed and then some!

Christy K "C. Kontz", Amazon
10 March 2010
  • Summary: This all in one was recommended by my tech support professional. I can see why. It does everything, and the ethernet connection for the network bypasses the desktop completely so my laptop can print independently of that.

SUPER PRINTER, SCANNER

OLDPHOX, Amazon
31 August 2009
  • Summary: Would buy it again. Printing is super and trouble free so far. Have had it about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. Haven't tried to print an 11 x 17 sheet yet which was why I purchased it. I love the "all in one" feature.

Good machine

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 August 2009
  • Summary: This was one of the coolest copiers that I have ever messed with. It not only is pretty, but is very user friendly and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I ordered it for the youth group at our church and I hope it comes in handy as I am sure that it will. :-)
