Make sure you like to non printing features

M Hurdle, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: Make sure you like the non printing features because the printer stopped working within weeks. Brother replaced my first unit, and now the second one stopped printing. So now instead of a printer I have a large answering machine! I wish I had purchased something else.

Don't buy, black ink will clog and it is unrepairable

vend iagram, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: As others have reported here after a time - particularly if the printer is used lightly, black ink print will clog or fail. I went though an entire new cartridge performing the 'black' clean, which somehow also seemed to consume color ink.

Doesn't like black print; poor customer support

Ronald E. Hart, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: I use this product at home, mainly for low volume copying and printing. Everything was fine for about a year, then things went bad. Suddenly I couldn't get black to print. The other 3 colors worked fine. I inserted 2 new black cartridges, and nothing changed.

Failure at 15 months

Grover Wright, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: MFC-885CW: We use this only to accept FAXes, and the useage is VERY light (not more than 5 pages per month. At 15 months the black print head appears to have failed just like a previous reviewer has noted above. Ours though is out of warranty.

Wireless setup is VERY VERY DIFFICULT

IAMAPEN, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: I had this thing working wirelessly, but suddenly, it has become intermittent. It will say "Connected" but when I try to, for instance, scan something, it reports "Check Connection!". How frustrating! Have reset the machine and tried to setup wireless again but no luck.
