Summary: I have had this printer for over a year. It generally works, but it does really annoying things like 1) Not print is a cartridge is low 2) Put a pink stripe down the side of pages randomly. online research says its because something on the screen is dirty, but even after cleaning, it still happens sporadically. Yes, its very annoying 3) the scanner does not allow you to change teh resolution of teh saved images so every image is HUGE.
Summary: Plan on calling professional help to set up this sucker. It's a temperamental pain in the neck. Must use Brother toner or pay the price with something going wrong with the machine, so forget remanufactured and compatible. Just can't call your office machine repair guy as most don't know diddly about the configuration stuff. If you use another brand of toner, the warranty is voided.
Summary: I have purchased two of these. The first one died after 14 months. After going back and forth with Brother they told me to take it to an authorized service center about 30 miles away. After the technician had it for 2 weeks the cost to repair was going to be within 75 dollars of a new machine. I had 4 toner cartridges so I decided to purchase another one, this time with the extended warranty. To date I have no complaints other than the volume of toner it goes through.
bagumyan (Sept. 2010) - thanks for your review on toner!

Summary: Thank you bagumyan for your instructions as to re-setting the 'toner out message' I purchased a Brother MCF9320CW about a year ago. Shortly thereafter I got a message saying black toner was low, then out. Machine completely shuts down so you can't even use it to send a fax. Staples explained the machine comes with 'toner cartridges that aren't full', so I purchase the black to install right away, as well as a magenta, cyan and yellow to have on hand - sure enough a...
Summary: For printing invoices and purchase orders from Quickbooks for my business, this Brother model works well. Color printing quality is good. When printing Avery mailing labels, I place the labels inside the paper tray. The orientation for labels from the tray is print-side down with the top of the labels facing towards the front of the printer. The manual feed on this model functions rather poorly. Printing is often misaligned.
Summary: I researched many 4 in 1's and this seemed to present the best for my application. After using it for 6 months, I am disappointed. You can only manual feed 1 sheet at a time (this may have been in the spec and I missed it). This is very inconvenient. It is very difficult to feed it exactly right and if you don't,you have to open the top to reset it. Color is slightly washed out. Copying using the ADF feeder slightly distorts the copy, using the scanner does a great job.
Summary: I purchased this machine from a local retailer in October 2010. Believe it or not, the installation disks did not have drivers for Windows 7 64 bit. I had to download the driver from the internet (note that the default language for the download is Bulgarian !). I also had to download the driver for my iMac even though there was a disk for iMacs included with the machines. One reviewer noted that the software was created by and for geeks. That is very true.
Summary: At first I was very happy with the purchase of this MFC. My frustration started when I ran into the low toner, then replace toner messages. Once you get replace toner message, the machine will stop printing. After several calls to Brother support and long hours on wait, (and $400 spent on new toners) I was not given ANY satisfying answers. They explained thats the yield of the toners, yield my @ss, I only printed 200 color copies.
Summary: I special order this Brother MFC-9320cw from Amazone.com. I like most about everything including features, functions and the price is fine. The worse feature about this printer is the manual feed. It offers just only one page at a time and you still have to hold that sheet of paper straight and constanly jam. It took me almost 2 hours to print 30 sheets of card stock.
Summary: //Updated 02/14/2012 I wanted to post an update to my earlier review. This is still a great all-in-one, however we have been forced to replace it in the office we bought it for. Why? In a word, "consumables". This unit simply tears through toner cartridges. The office that it is installed in probably prints around 3000-5000 pages a month. In the past year they have gone through over 30 toner cartridges as well as two drum sets and a belt set for this printer.
