Good printer but not reliable with faxing or scanning functions.

pistolpete6331, Ebay
10 May 2014
  • Summary: I was optimistic about this purchase since I have had pretty good experience with Brother printers, and hoped this would work well as a pre-owned less expensive purchase. It was billed as "lightly used" and fully tested. The printing functions are solid, with very good print quality.

Jim, Office Depot
10 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this 6 months ago and now the only way I can copy from my computer is to turn off the printer after sending print and then turning it back on. The cost to repair almost equals the original cost.
