Excerpt: I researched and researched. We owned the brother Mfc 7820n and it was a workhorse. Wonderful. Just wonderful. It became a little hinky after over 10 years of use. We felt we couldn't depend on it anymore, so we decided to get a new laser printer.
Excerpt: This printer works great until it suddenly STOPS! With over 70% of my high yield toner remaining(according to the user setting report printed off of the printer itself), I got a "toner low" message, and my printer stopped dead.
Excerpt: Required me to get JAVA download for my MAC Maverick. (on Maverick should not be needed). Downloaded JAVA and had their own test script determine that the download and install were successful.
Lousy networking for Win 7 machines, manual is wrong, "not our problem"

Summary: I am very technically proficient in networking. Brother is not. I suggest anyone considering the MFC-7860DW read the one star reviews. Brother wants you use a USB cable between your computer and the Brother device to set up wireless initially.
Excerpt: The software is not ready for AirPrint. It needs an app to run through and has limitations. If you use it only with a computer this printer is good. If it's used with tablets and smart phones buy an HP. I returned the brother got an HP everything easily works.
Excerpt: Bought this from Staples, they have a 14 day return policy. 14 days, really? What a joke... I used the scan / copy feature and it puts a line down the middle of the page every time. Have to go through manufactures warranty process which is a nightmare. Don't roll the dice on this.
