Summary: The Brother MFC7360N is programmed to alert you when toner is running low. This alert reads: "Replace Toner." The first time this occurred, I did not change the toner immediately. As toner is expensive, I wanted to wait. We used nearly 500 sheets after we were told that we were out of paper. However, eventually the printers stops you from printing due to the toner warning.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, this printer works great, until you are through the first toner. Then Brother has you suckered. Buy the expensive $60 replacement cartridge (because the alternates DO NOT work) and then you get maybe 100 copies out of it before you have to buy another one. Unlike other Bother printers there is no optical override. You will simply not be permitted to let the toner run dry.
Summary: This is a lousy printer. I purchased 3 months ago because of it's network printing ability. You are considering purchasing a reasonably priced MFC printer that is passable. Problem is it consumes toner at a pace I have never seen and we go through about one printer per 18 months at the office where we use this device. Also, it just stops working when it SENSES the toner is low.
Summary: This is the a lousy product. I have had this for over a year and disliked it after two weeks. It does a poor job of its primary function, printing. The toner cartriage is a money maker for Brother. I did not get through a full paper tray before getting a message to change the cartriage. I just replaced the cartriage AGAIN and it does not want to print. The network capability is slow. The scan function fair.
Summary: AVOID BROTHER PRINTERS! Brother will NOT provide support on ANY issue if you don't buy Brother toner cartridges and ONLY Brother cartridges. I had a problem with the SCANNER and they refused to provide ANY support because I had an after-market TONER cartridge. The toner cartridge has NOTHING to do with the scanner! AVOID BROTHER PRINTERS!
Summary: I bought this printer to use in my office and in less that 6 months I received an error message "scan enabled" and to date i have yet to get the problem resolved and i am not able to scan, photocopy nor send fax. And those were the main reasons why i bought this printer.
Summary: This looks like a good deal.. until you actually start using it. You start getting a "toner low" message after printing 20-30 pages. After printing less than a hundred, it will just stop working saying "replace toner". The Brother help-desk is absolutely useless. You are on hold for a long time and then a person reads you the manual - that's the extent of their help. I think all this is about Brother trying to sell more of their expensive cartridges.
Summary: Not sure if Brother designed this on purpose or not, but from the day one I had problem with annoying "replace toner" message. Not easy to resolve it and there are only limited places where you can find information. The Brother website has "fix" for it but does not work (they decided to include resolution in "Advance Manual"). Not sure if this design is to market their Toner but to me it's been nothing than a pain. Besides that, it's a great printer.
Summary: Great printer/scanner/copier if hooked up via USB, but the built-in networking does not work well with Lion. Snow Leopard works well, but upgrading to Lion gives intermittent and unreliable network connections to the Mac (Windows connectivity has never been a problem). I've downloaded all the Lion drivers, I've reset everything and talked to the friendly folks in India for a while -- no luck.
