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: Printing: Printing is just ok. It takes too long for the first print. After the 1st print, the speed is ok. Also, envelopes get crinkled no matter if regular or linen - and no matter how I adjust the tension settings. I had this problem with my prior Brother MFC.
Summary: You need to adjust your document 1/16 in right of center to have your document print in the center of the page. Called Brother support and they printed a test page on their model, and it came out left of center also. They had no suggestions on how to fix the problem. Horrible support center.
Summary: The printer has a very long warm up time but the printing itself is adequate for general office type printing. Don't even think about printing photos. The nail in this beast's coffin is that it will not print anything after it decides it needs a new color cartridge.
