Summary: This is the WORST MFC we have purchased for our office! We are constantly replacing toner, when it is still very full! Don't try to tell me out-of-date toner can somehow damage the machine. We put black toner in less than a month ago, and now we have to replace the FULL cartridge AGAIN.
Summary: The positives - EXCELLENT printing quality!!! Ink is actually reasonable. The cartridges are laser and color, so they're not the cheapest, but compared to other printers which tend to be cheap in price, but can nickel and dime you with ink prices, the Brother MFC9450CDN is a fantastic machine!
Summary: I've had this printer now for about 2.5 years. I have been very happy with the network capability of the machine. I use it in a small home office where we print a variety of documents both BW and color. Overall the printer has been very reliable, faxing, scanning, and copying is a breeze.
Summary: I had an HP printer for 10 years and never had any problems with it. It eventually died on me, and it was suggested to me to purchase this 3 in 1 printer. What a disaster! The first one I bought was so bad that eventually the company had to admit it was a lemon and they replaced it for me.
Summary: Duplex printing is much slower than I expected. I knew it wouldn't be as fast as single sided but it is much slower. Also thought it shipped with all four high yield toners but that does not seem to be the case as the cyan ran out right after the black and I didn't very little color printing.
Summary: Overall this printer works well, except that we have had spots on the page from day one. At Brother's suggestion we changed to a new toner and the problem seemed to go away. The spots then returned.
Summary: This multi-function printer is a bargain. Easy to setup and use, nice print quality, etc. make this printer comparable to other much higher priced units. The toner is fairly priced as well which means the price per copy will be very reasonable...
Summary: I am very pleased with the value of this machine. The print quality is very nice and it is extremely user friendly. We have the printer networked between three offices and it is working glitch free.
Summary: I have used many many printers in my career and this one is by far the worst ever. The paper curls so bad that you can stand it on its side. The color is washed out and grainy the the reds appear brown. It is slow and the warm up speed takes forever.
