I still have an HP b&w printer from 20 years ago that prints fine. Won't buy another Brother printer

D. Ross, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I had this printer for 4 years; used it very little as I avoid wasting paper. Then one day it died. I took it to an authorized Brother dealer who said the machine had become e-waste and could not be salvaged. If I printed a couple of thousand pages in 4 years, that's tops.

Save your money

Classy n Sassy, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this 18 months ago from a Office Supply store, Just after a year it started to "squeal" when printing. I did lots of research online and found this to be a common problem with this machine.

Noisy printer; works but support SUCKS

Barbell, Amazon
8 October 2010
  • Summary: Bought this machine February 2010. Had three computers on it with a Belkin router. Was working fine until recently that router began to fail so replaced with a Cisco. First day all was well. Then for no reason, could not print anything from any computer without a hardwire connection.

prone to jam. can't they just make these better

R. Singer, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I've owned a sequence of Brother MFC's over the last 10+ years. Unfortunately, the older ones were the best. My last few ones (including the 7840w which I just bought) have been prone to jam. The worst are the duplex ones (I just tossed one of these for the 7840w).

Works OK, tech support less so

Aaardvark, Amazon
27 January 2009
  • Summary: I am very happy with the printer, but am less so with tech support. When I brought this printer home, it worked fine in every mode but scanning, where I received a CC 3205 error. I immediately reported this to the Brother tech support line.

Great Printer, Horrible Networking

Manas Thakrar, Amazon
6 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this printer after reading all the rave reviews. My primary goal was to get an all-in-one laser printer with wireless capability. At first the printer setup was a breeze and I was really excited. The printer quality as well as scan qualities were excellent.

Toner... Toner... Toner

Prime in Delaware, Amazon
6 December 2008
  • Summary: I set up the machine for my small home network, connected to a router instead of directly to a pc. If you are running any of your computers wireless and use a firewall then pour yourself a drink and settle in for the night because this configuration will take you a while.

Defective product with bureaucratic customer service

Mark Twain, Amazon
13 October 2008
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this product after reading the positive reviews here. Unfortunately it was defective out of the box. There seems to be a known issue with a toner cartridge error: the sensor fails to read that the cartridge is full.

User Review

18 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Аппарат можно смело приобретать в офис какой-нибудь строительной конторки, где сидит какой-нибудь прораб и которому просто всё равно на чём печатать и как. А картридж заправят уполномоченные лица, а также починят, почистят.
  • Pros: Из достоинств разве что некие сетевые функции, оценить которые всецело смогут лишь офисные служащие крупной компании. Остальное имеется у каждой уважающей себя фирмы, где можно и на цене/качестве поразмыслить, но вряд ли Бразер выдвинется в приоритеты.
  • Cons: Очень медленная обработка данных по современным меркам. Сканирование А4 листа в каком-нибудь текстовом стандарте офисных нужд происходит на столько долго, что можно сварить себе чашку кофе и поискать печенюшек. О нестандартности внутренней начинки я вообще молчу. Если вам посчастливится встретить...

Nur für Festnetz

Rumpelstilzchen, Amazon
3 November 2009
  • Summary: Ganz kurze Rezension: Wer eine Internet Telefonleitung hat, wie z.B. 1 und 1, usw. wird dieses Gerät nicht zum laufen bekommen, da es nicht auf Voip umstellbar ist. Es kann noch die Geschwindigkeit herabgesetzt werden, muß aber auch nicht unbedingt funktionieren.
