Bigger does not mean better

Anonymous, Newegg
22 December 2008
  • Summary: Once it finally gets going, it prints a steady stream and does ok. It has a few printing problems though, depending on what program you print from. I would not buy another, nor would I recommend this to anyone.
  • Pros: Decent color for regular paper. Wouldn't use it for photos or anything.
  • Cons: SLOW!! I mean dead slow. We have two of these and they both act the same way. It takes 90 seconds for this thing to warm up and print one page...we timed it. If not used for 10 minutes, you have to wait for it to warm up again. It's also REALLY loud. All you hear is *klunk* over and over again. T...

Questionable purchase...

Philip Z., Newegg
21 July 2007
  • Summary: The major question I have about this product is the incredibly high cost of consumables used in the printing process (~500$ OPC belt and ~500$ fuser,) which, according a number of other sources, require somewhat quick replacement (60,000 images on OPC, 60,000 pages on fuser.
  • Pros: Initially out of the box, having worked with other Brother MFC's before, as I am a computer consultant by trade, setup was rather simple and straightforward, both by USB and network interface. The initial speed is great, spitting out b/w prints quickly, and color prints slightly slower, but quick...
  • Cons: Roughly 3 weeks after owning the printer, and using primarily to print out a large number of color prints from a vacation, the problems began. The coloration of the printer began to shift to represent a completely different color set in comparison to when I began using it, which was a huge headac...

  • Summary: This is an update to earlier.
  • Pros: It is a good copier for sure. Good speed. It's friggin cheap. When it works, it works fantastic.
  • Cons: I've had 2 of these for over a month now at different locations and both are having same issues. When printing, scanning, faxing, anything that requires data to/from computer sometimes they get stupid. A power-reset is required to get it to print some more. This is a common enough issue to make i...

Good cheap allinone

Jeff M., Newegg
30 April 2007
  • Summary: It doesn't duplex, but I don't care. More builtin memory would be nice but it works fine for me without that.
  • Pros: It scans, faxes, prints in color quickly. It's a fantastic machine so far. About to buy a second one for another location.
  • Cons: Makes a lot of racket while warming up. Once it's on though it just makes ordinary laser printer noises.

  • Summary: I love it ! would buy it all over again, if I needed to.
  • Pros: Great machine, all in one. Really good to excellent quality printing, faxing and copying. Have not used the scanner yet.
  • Cons: Makes typical noise when printing, copying and receiving faxes. But nothing annoying. All printers have to make some noise. It doesn't bother me at all. When on standby it's very quiet.

Great Printer

Justin T., Newegg
20 March 2006
  • Summary: Great printer, be prepared for a few software issues but only stuff that is rarely used like scan to pc etc. If you just need a fax printer copy that does good to great images and don't mind it being a bit loud get this one!
  • Pros: This is a great printer, Good Color, Nice Multi Function Abilities, cheap for feature set!
  • Cons: Loud, Software is klunky, interface is kinda ackward. Did I mention loud? I'm having trouble getting the scan to functions to work correctly.

Pros outweigh the Cons

  • Excerpt: I have been impressed with this device - when I bought it brother had a 200 pound cashback promotion which was excellent as I bought the device for the cost of most inkjet rivals. This device offers very fast colour and black and white prints.
  • Pros: Fast Prints, Colour, Network ports, Easy to use web interface
  • Cons: Noisy, quite bulky

  • Excerpt: insgesamt sind wir sehr zufrieden mit dem gerät und der software. scannt sehr schnell, aber einseitig. kritik: die beschreibung scanfunktion ist nicht auf anhieb vollverständlich und es geht geht sehr lange bis das erste blatt ausgedruckt ist.
