Odd Problem and Odder Work-a-Round

Digitizer, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: Got this model to print orders in our office which are on 8.5x14 paper. Had a very unusual issue with printing that Brother support was not able to help me with. When printing a job that had "user defiined" as the paper size the printer would default to the MP Tray no matter what setting was in the driver software or the printer hardware settings. I had both set to only use tray 1.

Great but watch the ink/toner warnings

Merrick Reid, Amazon
5 October 2014
  • Summary: I love brother products. As an IT guy, i have the pleasure of purchasing quite a few of these. However, I am beginning to get one feedback that i don't like. The machines are complaining about the drum being empty way too quickly. This is quite annoying especially since clients have said they printed an additional two weeks on average after this complaint. Note: The complaint also happens on the brothers that are none laser.

  • Summary: This printer is nice pretty fast only problem is the brother company .I received first with the bad drum and I asked the factory to replace the drum the paper was getting stock inside but they keep refusing and send twice people to change almost all the parts in the motor except the drum .If they had little brain and replaced the drum they would have saved themselves a lots of money .I think they dont care for money only their principle.Thanks to Amazon they replaced it...

Replace Toner Message

Paul, Office Depot
6 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I actually love the printer. I'm only giving it 3 stars because Brother makes you replace the cartage even though you still have toner left. People have been complaining about this for years, but they continue to ignore the issue. Once you receive the ! Replace Toner message, it will no longer print until you replace the toner cartridge.
  • Pros: Doesn't Jam, Good Value, Fast, Quality, Performance
  • Cons: toner message

Lousy tech support, Doesn't support VOIP

CherylR, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I have had constant problems with the Fax portion of this machine. It wouldn't receive faxes and I frequently could not send a fax. After numerous phone calls to the alleged (overseas)tech support, I was ready to spend $60 to have someone come out and determine what was wrong. They did some research before coming out and realized I have VOIP phone service. Guess what?

Be Forewarned!

Foxtrotter9, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: This is a GREAT printer! I have not used most of the features yet, but so far, it is exactly what I needed. The lid that lifts up seems a little cheesy, feeling like it is twisting out of alignment and the spring slams it down pretty hard when it is lowered. All of the things Brother tells you appear to be as promised - plus one other thing they DON'T mention...

  • Excerpt: Рекомендовал бы для офиса поискать другую модель
  • Pros: Wi-Fi Скорость печати Автоматическая 2 сторонняя печать
  • Cons: Проблемы с захватом бумаги на 3 устройствах , видимо косяк производителя Из картриджа сыпет щедро тонером На одном из принтеров при пробеге 40 000 листов вышла из строя печка Ремонт встал в 10 000 Сенсорный дисплей реагирует не сразу , это иногда просто бесит лучше бы его вообще не было

  • Excerpt: Если бы не проблемы с захватом был бы идеалом для малого бизнеса.
  • Pros: Отличный принтер, быстрый, недорогой. Дешевая стоимость печати, емкий картридж. Отлично работает в сети, полностью перекрывает все функциональные возможности. Удобное ПО от разработчика.
  • Cons: На 4 из 5 устройствах через некоторое время использования появились проблемы с захватом бумаги, говорит что нет бумаги. Подозреваю что и 5 устройство не минет кара сия. Чистка роликов помогает но ненадолго, это просто мучение. В техподдержке Brother заявляют что все нормально и предлагают использовать более качественную (дорогую) бумагу. Предыдущая модель (MFC-8880DN) с этой бумагой работает отлично, проблем с захватом нет. Вероятно недочеты конструкции (в данной моде...

Bien en general pero con ciertos problemas

Manuel, amazon.es
17 September 2012
  • Summary: Después de casi dos años utilizándola valoro positivamente la rapidez en el escaneado y la impresión, la facilidad de uso, la posibilidad de escanear ambas caras de una pagina, impresión duplex, uso en red... Pero, aproximadamente al año de uso, tuve problemas con unas bandas de color que aparecian al escanear los documentos y actualmente muchos problemas de atasco de papel. Utilizo consumibles originales.
