The Good and The Bad

Chuck, Staples
27 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Compared to my Brother 7820N: Good: Faster, duplex print option, wireless option, lower power (443W peak vs 1032W peak for 7820N). Bad: Noisier, peak power (while printing) still dims the lights briefly (suggestions: use a separate circuit or a heavy-duty surge suppressor).
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Noisy

almost perfect

tired of running out of ink, Staples

  • Excerpt: I just traded in my HP wireless color printer for this B/W printer. It prints faster and scans documents directly to computer without USB. I wish they set double-side printing as default, though. Perhaps I did not do it right because I had to go to setting every time to make double-side printing. Waiting to see how the toner holds out.
  • Pros: Efficient, Fast, Quiet

Pleasantly surprised by its performance.

  • Excerpt: Excellent quality of copies and fast, efficient duplex copies too. Its size doesn't take up as much space as my older printer. Performs very well and I was pleasantly surprised by the whole package!

great for everyday use

Harvey the Rabbit, Staples

  • Excerpt: This Brother printer is the fifth one we are using. Our old fax broke, didn't really mind, got a chance to replace it with a quality product.This works great as a fax machine , copier and printer. Added bonus is the scanning feature. Colors are accurate, just don't expect it to be as fast as a dedicated scanner, for that we use the brother ads-2000. If you expect to print envelopes keep away, you have to feed the envelopes one at a time.
  • Pros: Cheap To Run, Efficient, Fast, Sharp Detail
  • Cons: Lousy For Envelopes

Okay setup with flaws

Mountain Man, Staples
23 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This monochrome all-in-one laser printer works fine for medium usage and is fairly quiet. It takes Windows computers 8-10 seconds to find the printer on the wifi network but once it connects, it prints very fast. The setup software that came with it worked fine with a Windows 7 Pro computer but on both of our Windows 8.1 PCs it had problems completing the setup until I discovered that you need to "repair" the setup (an option you eventually get to as part of...
  • Pros: Fast, Quiet

Why didn't I buy this a lot sooner?

Patty the Couponer, Staples
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I wish I had bought this printer a long time ago. I will no longer be spending so much money on ink and will get many more prints than I ever got with my inkjet printer. It is a bit noisy, but who cares if it gets the job done at little cost. The print is clear and so easy to read and it doesn't skip pages like my old printer did. It is also an attractive peripheral that I don't mind having on top of my desk. My last printer was a huge monster that was also unsightly.
  • Pros: Efficient, Fast, Reliable, Saves Money On Ink, Sharp Detail
  • Cons: Noisy

Scan to email no longer functional

Ernest L., Newegg
18 December 2013
  • Summary: I'm surprised Brother hasn't added this--they've been so prompt in adding support for other things.
  • Pros: I have two of these that have performed brilliantly, replacing a Canon AIO (no 64 bit support) and an HP AIO (no support whatsoever).
  • Cons: The scan-to-email works from an embedded SMTP server. Until December 11, 2013, this has worked fine, even with Verizon, which requires email to be sent through their server. On that date, something changed, and this function no longer works. This is probably because this printer doesn't support SSL connections. So, with this and a number of other Brother AIO, be warned.

Has every feature I need!

Alicia in Northern Michigan, Staples

  • Excerpt: Was searching for a printer for strictly black-and-white printing.....was spending too much on color cartridges that are depleted even when printing in only black and white. The Brother copier I selected gave me all of the features I wanted - and more - at a great price. I still have a color copier, but it'll be the Brother that will be my primary printer. Lastly, I know it may sound silly, but I've retrofitted the printer's plastic packing bag.
  • Pros: Compact size, Easy to operate, Fast, Great price
