Best Printer Ever Made ;)

orlando v., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Pros: I just was reading the reviews on this and thought I would give my two cent even though it's discontinued.(they have newer models now) This is one of the best printers ever made ;) *.Why because it's awesome.. why because it scans.. has network capable memory cards(could make a little NAS out of ...
  • Cons: like any printer they make money off the print cartridges, but that's why you need a CIS system. It works amazing.

Piece of Junk !

Robbin R., Newegg
17 August 2009
  • Summary: IT'S THE EXACT SAME PRINTER & PRINT HEAD AS THE FLAWED BROTHER MFC-665CW ! ! ! BEWARE !
  • Pros: Works great....until the print head gives out. A known issue with both this and it's little brother, the MFC-665CW....identical printers except for the antenna. Same print head, everything.
  • Cons: Bought the MFC-665CW just under a year ago. After about 6 months, the printer started claiming the ink-paks were dry. Replaced them at considerable expense, continued to clamor for new cartridges. After Googling the printer, found out about the print head issues for the 665CW. rendering the print...

  • Summary: You cant go wrong with this refurbish all-in-one, its definitly the best printer i ever owned for the price.
  • Pros: Everything you need and it prints great. Love the tilt color screen and the quick scan/fax feature where you dont need to open the scanner lid. Cordless phone is a bonus to and menu's are easy to navigate.
  • Cons: I think the scanner lid feels alittle weak when opening so i gave 4 stars.

Decent all in one

Julynn W., Newegg
8 April 2009
  • Summary: I have not printed on anything else other than standard letter paper so I don't know how it handles envelopes or other media. I have not printed any photos so I don't know about the quality of pictures, but I didn't purchase it for that purpose mainly the fax, scanning and cordless phone feature
  • Pros: Set up was a breeze. The wireless connection was easy to set up even on a secure network. I was surprised at the short time it took from out of the box to printing the first document. Documentation and set up instructions were adequate both in print and on cd. The unit itself is lightweight and i...
  • Cons: paper tray and door for ink compartment is filmsy, but not much else to speak of

Great Unit

Richard W., Newegg
18 January 2009
  • Summary: Can easily use ink other than Brother which saves quite a bit. I've never used the answering machine functionality. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of photos; should be good enough for any one doing snapshots. The 4x6 paper feeder is nice for pictures too.
  • Pros: It does everything it's supposed to do well. Brother has drivers for Linux so it works with all my home systems.
  • Cons: None that I've noticed

Paper Size?????

Anonymous, Newegg
16 January 2009
  • Summary: This is not a review as much as a comment on Brother's total inability to COMMUNICATE. It seems to me that it may be of interest to potential customers what paper sizes Brother printers will accommodate. Typically this is listed in the Paper Handling portion of the specs. Not with Brother, though.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: None
