Sturdy Workhorse

Elisa, Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: I am buying this to replace the same model I bought refurbished April 2006 for $177. A great workhorse. It finally died after six tax seasons printing out tax returns. Yeah, it isn't good at envelopes. And it does tend to have some paper jams. But it prints great quality and fast. If it lasts as long as the last one I will be thrilled. It works great with my professional tax software to print out tax returns for my business.

good basic printer

LukeSkywooker, Office Depot
2 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I have run this printer for 5 years. I run about 1500 pages per month. Finally, it is worn out and needs to be replaced. The new printers have more features, but it was well worth the money I paid $249.
  • Pros: reliable, nice document feeder, cartridges last a long time

Excellent multifunction printer

ed0168, Ebay
2 July 2008
  • Summary: This multifunction printer is a great substitute for the HP models. Very crisp output and a great value for the home office. The only draw is the scanner option which is not a flat bed scanner.

Nice Printer, but has copying issues

Tim, Staples
23 February 2008
  • Excerpt: I have owned 2 of these all in ones, as well as other Brother all in ones. We use this for a business. We print hundreds of documents a day, as well as dozens of faxes. Both units I have owned have had issues making copies. We make hundreds of copies per day. Quite frequently, when you are making multiple copies of the same document, the machine will stop and give you an error. You have to turn off the power and wait for it to reboot.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation
  • Cons: Problems making copies

User Review

knabster, TigerDirect.com
15 September 2006
  • Summary: Nice all in one box for the price. Have owned this machine since Jan of 2005. Once in a while I get a paper jamb and they can be a real pain to clear the paper. That's the price you pay for cheap. It is a fast machine (18 sec warm up) and does have great print quality. One other aspect I didn't like is draws about 9 watts in sleep mode and 75 in standby. But the real problem is it draws about 11 amp surges every 10 to 15 seconds for about 10 minutes while in standby.
