Summary: We bought this printer locally a year ago because we needed it right away. The first one we got was dead out of the box, but we figured if you make ten thousand of something you'll occassionally get a bad one, so we gave them the benefit of the doubt. We took it back and the second one worked fine--for less than a year.
Summary: This is my 4th Brother MFC laser machine and I purchased it based upon the good quality of previous printer. This one though has been a disappointment. I've had trouble with toner escaping the cartridges right from the start. The waste toner doesn't seem to find its way into the waste toner container but rather builds up on the cartridge roller. As soon as you pull a cartridge out of the machine there is toner all over the machine and desktop.
Summary: We have used this printer before and had great results. Naturally, I saw it as the clear decision for our new workplace. The printer still works great, unfortunately the software had a kink* with it. Every computer we loaded the driver on lost internet access immediately after installation. I didn't believe it myself until we video taped the 3rd computer going down like clock work. I don't know how it happened, but it took us over a week to get back up and running.
