Excerpt: My church purchased this printer to replace a full-sized copier that was donated to us when it finally wore out. Since we didn't have a large scale coping situation we thought this would be sufficient for our purposes and with the color capability would let us do some creative printing. It has turned out to be quite sufficient for our needs.
Excerpt: I have had several Brother printers. Every time I upgraded to a better or newer model, I was very happy with the results. This particular model, however, is not so good. It takes a long time to start printing and when it does, it is slow. Not nearly as fast as they write in the specs. It wrinkles envelopes, so forget about using that function.
Summary: The printer is a breeze to set up and had it talking to my network of PC's and Mac's in next to no time. The scanner software is great, and the general functionality of the machine is easy to use and operate Print speed and quality is perfectly adequate for this price, coupled with separate cartridges for separate colours should help reduce replacement toner costs which is a boost.
