Summary: I am posting this review as a warning for those considering purchasing this machine for their home office, especially if you live in a newer home that has AFCI circuit breakers installed in the bedrooms/living rooms as per code. I bought this printer to use in an upstairs bedroom with 15-amp AFCI outlets and the machine would trip the breaker anytime I turned it on.
Summary: What else can I say... warranty is up and I'm stuck with a 80 lb monstrosity of a printer that constantly jams and doesn't print clearly, and I'm stuck with a new drum and toner that I bought to try to fix the problem! Buy something cheaper so when you replace it you'll save money?
Excerpt: I bought this printer a week ago and haven't yet had a single print job perfect. It either jams the paper or skips sheets (when I was printing checks). I typically print on the back of paper to recycle but I had to give up on that with all the jamming issues. Even brand new paper for inkjet printing jams or skips pages on every single print job. Also, the paper cassette has to be completely removed and loaded from the far side whenever you need to add paper.
Summary: This is about my fourth Brother MFC. Generally, I've been satisfied. However, with this model, Brother has changed the way you select SORT vs. STACK (Collate). There used to be a dedicated sort button. Now, you need to go through a much lengthy process in the options menu. Also, it resets to STACK after each job. I would never have bought this machine if I was aware of this.
Summary: This was my original review: It does the job quickly. For two-sides print and scanning, it works great. I love it. The only problem is it's kind of big and we have to find a place to put it. Six months later: Paper jammed when scanning, then this machine stop working. Called customer service, tech going to come this week to do a 'on-site' fix.
Summary: This is an OK laser printer and copier. If you need to do scanning - don't waste your time. Have to hit the buttons 9, yes 9 times, to scan to a file - then, if you are doing so over a WIRED network - it takes forever! Having thrown the box out, I am stuck with this huge waste of a machine but I will keep it as a printer/copier and just buy a real scanner that actually works.
Summary: Basically this printer works, with the usual Brother jamming problems. But don't buy this printer if you need to print double-sided - it just flat out doesn't work. Any document longer than a few pages will have you spending hours babysitting the printer, clearing paper jam after paper jam, flopping the doors open and closed, trying to get the document finished.
