Watch Out for Power Consumption

R., Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: Great Printer with lots of neat features. HOWEVER, the printer uses 1024 WATTS or 9.1 Amps when it powers up to print a page or make a copy. This has caused me alot of problems. I installed the printer at home in my study. I have two desktop computers, modem, router, HP P1100 color printer,Canon PC 720 Copier, desk lamps, etc. The electrical circuit for the study is a 15 AMP circuit. Everytime the printer powers up, I take a "power hit".

Good printer, but MANGLES envelopes

Gregorio, Amazon
8 January 2008
  • Summary: I was really happy with the speed and quality of the printer until I tried to print an envelope. This printer does not have a straight-through output path for envelopes. Instead, they have to make a sharp turn inside the machine, which severely creases them, to the point of interfering with the printing. Take a look at the diagram of envelopes they don't support on page 15 of the manual, and you'll see a picture of every conceivable type of envelope.

Mine lasted 15 months before going DEAD.

  • Summary: I purchased this model for work and can honestly state that I use it no more than a couple times a week on average. 14 months of use and now I get skewed printing, a problem that technicians have told me is not an easy/cheap fix. So I place a call to Brother to see if I can get some sort of customer "service" and all I get is a cold "NO".

Poor quality

J. Devine "Davenport", Amazon
9 April 2007
  • Summary: We purchased two of these multifunction machines for two separate offices. While the brother has many capabilities, including SCAN-to-Email, file and PDF. Quality problems greatly hender its performance. Scanning documents through the document feeder result in crooked/offset images. I thought we simply purchased a bad-unit. But, after returning it for a replacement - we got the same result. The first unit we purchased broken down after about 2 months.

User Review

mserrab, Ciao

  • Summary: Tiene dos problemas importantes: los documentos escaneados ocupan mucho espacio. una hoja A4, aunque sea a una resolución baja, puede llegar a ocupar de 300 a 600 k. si lo multiplicas por 10 páginas, tienes un documento que dificilmente se podrá enviar por correo electrónico.
