Summary: I bought this to replace a Sharp copier/printer. The toner for the Sharp was twice as much money as this Brother. Plus this Brother is wireless so has only the power cord and the phone cord for faxes. We use it as printer for 2 computers and I use it for scanning. I absolutely LOVE the scanner! When my other Sharp copier finally dies, I will replace it with a Brother like this one.
Summary: Reliable, fast efficient easy to network. My staff says it doesn't scan directly to our EMR but that is their only complaint. Performs like a much larger stand alone professional multifunction it replaced.
Summary: My old office printer died on me and I needed something to replace it with. Compared to something older (7 years old) this is amazing, the scanning and fax features are extremely fast and the quality is amazing. The only issue I noticed was the power consumption, the light in my office dim a bit when it comes on.
Summary: I've been using the MFC products for 10 years or so and am never disappointed. One minor complaint about the packaging: the blue tape used to secure plastic shipping wrap left a residue on the exterior of the printer. Not sure how to remove it without damaging the plastic exterior.
Summary: After some research I decided to buy one of these for my office. I never owned a Brother printer before. I was expecting some setup time with the usual call to the IT Dept for help. Didn't happen. This thing setup wirelessly, practically by itself, within a minute or two, I installed the drivers from the CD and was happily printing to it, faxing with it, copying and scanning. Quality is top-notch.
Summary: This is good for my home office. Does all needed, well and quickly. No problems installing it; though I did need to use the cable and CD to get the wireless going. Wireless works just fine. So do all other functions I've tried. Nuance Paperport 12 has glitches with this machine so had to switch to the printer's scanning software, which isn't as versatile for me. I have long relied on Brother MFC's & highly recommend them. My prior one lasted many years.
