Good printer

Hoosier Girl, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: This Brothers printer has been working good for me for over 5 years now. And the toner seems to last forever. I like being able to copy and scan to PDF with the software provided. I admit that I never did figure out how to fax, but I don't really need that feature.

A good five years

  • Summary: I bought this printer in 2008. I highly recommend it. My husband and I are both teachers and this printer came in very handy. We used it wirelessly for our two different computers for scanning and printing. UPDATE: Five years later, every single job gets jammed. I used the right drum kit.

Great printer!

  • Summary: I purchased my printer in September of 2008, and it is still going strong. I have only hit a few glitches, but nothing horrible. For example, when I use the automatic document feeder sometimes the documents towards the back of the pile become crooked for the scanning process.

Great Home Office Printer

Frederick, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: It's like a mini version of what you have at work and it's great for my home office. I already have a photo printer but needed to add the ability to scan and print more documents faster. I didn't want to put the printer in my living room so wireless was important to me.

Dakota Bill, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great product for home and small office. I have a Dell laptop with Vista and a Gateway desktop with Windows 7. Both computers and the Brother are networked through my NetGear wireless router. The enclosed drivers and setup CD worked in both computers without incident.

Tip on setting up wireless

S. H., Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: I went through a few hours of frustration setting up the printer in wireless, and here's a tip for someone who might be in similar shoes: If your wifi security is WPA2 (WPA2-Personal in my case), on the printer select AES as the security type, not TKIP.

  • Summary: I received this printer in two days from Amazon. The wireless setup on this printer was pretty straightforward and it took me only 5 mins to get it connected, however, I did have problems during software installation on my laptop.

Impressed and relieved!

DaveD, Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: Finding positive reviews on printers for more than home use has become a real challenge. I used to be an HP person but it was one bad review after another - especially for Mac users (which I am). So I went to Brother a while back - - I think it was the 5140dnl (?).
