Summary: I hope P.H. Sherrod, above, will forgive me it I "ditto" that excellent review, with the following slight differences/additions: The unit is pretty large and heavy, but if you are a healthy male you can probably set it up yourself.
Very nice color laser printer - solid, fast, heavy duty

Summary: I am very pleased with my Brother MFC-9440CN. Here are some positive and negative points: -- Positive -- It is very easy to set up. I have it configured for access through Ethernet, and it was far easer to get set up than other network printers I've installed.
I own one: CAUTION it uses up color toner during black printing, very expensive!

Summary: You read the title right. Tech support assures me it uses up color toner even during black printing. I have tons of black toner and rarely use color but I can't even print black right now until I pay brother $XXX (edit: price removed after a while as toner prices have been dropping) for new COLOR...
Summary: Sorry this is long review. This machine has some great features. It has a low price point for a color laser printer. It has your basic all-in-one features that us small business owners like: fax, print, copy, scan.
Summary: Brother is the only printer manufacturer who actually meets their speed claims. This is a workhorse of a printer/fax/scanner. Also, the software is minimalistic but does everything you need (I have it on OS X). Lets see, fast printing, fast scanning, fast copying. Great looking output.
Summary: The Brother multi-function works well in all areas, once you get through the set up. PRINTING. I have given it heavy print loads (50-100 page documents) and it cranks the pages out quickly. Good reasonable capacity paper tray. Excellent quality on high capacity. FAX: Fax works well, but caution.
Summary: The specs on this machine are fine. The price is reasonable. The print quality is fine. I have loved 2 previous Brother Multi-function machines that I have owned. However, if I could go back, I WOULD NOT BUY THIS UNIT AGAIN. Two reasons: 1. VERY slow to warm up from sleep mode.
Summary: This is the worst printer ever. It will seem ok when you first get it, then it will virtually fall apart piece by piece once you've had it for about 6 months. The tonor leaks and powder gets everywhere, you constantly deal with jams, all in all a very, very, very bad deal.
Summary: I thought I would need tech assistance to set this up, since it was so large, heavy and was complicated to get unpacked. Actually, I just zipped right through the set up once I had it on the stand.
Summary: Although it eventually arrived we had to empty the toner collection compartment before we could print so much as a test page. The unit itself is otherwise functional. Unlike a brand new unit it arrived with no toner cartridges and the cartridge holder was not properly secured for transportation.
