Cons: Paper jams. Toner cartridge difficult to change. Buy two toners at same time - you'll need them. Scans have line down the middle Drum needed to be replaced after modest use. Had to be special ordered.
Cons: Brother has finally figured out how to make you buy those drums. Built in error message that can only be fixed by replacing the drums. I received this message on other brother printers but never had to replace them.
Pros: How can a printer, fax, scanner be so great in two of their categories, and fall back to the 1980's for scanning!!! It is sad to see such a horrible product in the marketplace. If I had to do it again, I certainly would not purchase this printer.
Cons: The wireless function doesn't work at all. I tried setting it up with both a Mac and a Windows 7 machine. Neither will work. Tech support isn't helpful. I bought this machine specifically because I wanted wireless support.
"Great for Printing and copying--AWFUL for scanning"
3 February 2009
Pros: Print quality is excellent, copy quality is excellent. In fact, the printer portion of this machine is hard to beat, but...
Cons: Talk about a lousy scanning system. ScanSoft PaperPort software crashes EVERY time which requires use of Brother Control Center 3 software. Scan speed is atrocious. It took over an hour to scan a 1-page color document.
