The Beast

Anonymous, Newegg
17 November 2011
  • Summary: The wireless mode is simple to setup and works great from my laptop.
  • Pros: Great overall printer, all functions worked. Easy setup. Scanned into photoshop in just seconds. Picked up used for a couple of hundred with only 650 prints. The former owner said he couldn't get rid of the black speckles on each page. I ran the drum clean mode three times and cleaned it. Prints ...
  • Cons: This unit is a back breaker. Put 5 years on this 63 year old. Man this thing is heavy. The best price i've found for the toner is right here on Newegg. You can set the printer on the toner save mode and increase your toner life by 20%. The prints still look great!

Fantastic

  • Summary: This is a great printer and is well worth the investment. I still kept my old laser printer for general B&W printing, but for all of my professional printouts like resumes, spreadsheets, etc., this is the one to get.
  • Pros: Great all around unit! It scans, it faxes, it copies, and it prints! It has one of the best print qualities of any printer I have owned. This one does live up to being a true all in one unit.
  • Cons: Just a couple things, but not really cons. This is a huge printer and you will need lots of space for it. I do not recommend putting it on any of today's computer desks as they will not support this almost 80 lb. beast. I made a special floor platform for it and placed it under my desk. It is a l...

MFC-9840CDW

Anonymous, Newegg
14 March 2011
  • Summary: This machine is very heavy. Laser printer is suitable for (Bk/Cl) documents, not for photos. I have to use a ink-jet printer to produce pictures in photo-papers.
  • Pros: All the functions work well. Scanning by use of the document feeder helps my paper clutter reduction together with the help of the software of PaperPort. --- As long as using with high-yield Bk toner cartridge, I recommend this machine highly.
  • Cons: When I began using at first with the supplied low-yield Bk toner cartridge, I noticed Bk toner spills which ruined output. But, after replacing with high-yield Bk toner cartridge, such a problem disappeared, and I'm satisfied with using this versatile machine. Brother must solve such a problem. W...

Excellent all-in-one color printer (MFC)

Paul Kimelman, Amazon
1 January 2011
  • Summary: I finally had enough of the Canon Pixma MFC, especially with how fast it goes through ink and how annoying it is when the ink is at about 40%. This printer/copier/scanner is large and quite heavy as many have noted. But, it is not unreasonable for home use.

  • Summary: The wireless is a great feature as we are often roaming the house with a laptop. In addition, the duplex feature helps on saving paper.
  • Pros: Does everything and does it above well! Great for printing and copying. Duplex is awesome. Great price...just wait for the Newegg sale and pick it up with free shipping.
  • Cons: heavy and bulky. Replacement toner isn't cheap or high quality (i.e. leaks the powder), even on OEM cartridges.

  • Summary: price. is bit high but it will pay of in 3~5 year if office use high printing usage...i have not bought refill power for this printer but i believe refill is not too difficult for this printer.
  • Pros: Speed and color for office use. it has great speed for printing and network ability and ram size to helps to print from multiple commuter... ++ NETWORK ABILITY ++
  • Cons: setup... to be it was not hard but if you are using XP.. i might get tricky with ftp setup specially without USB cable win 7.. i dont think there is problem auto recognition from OS..

Fast and quiet

James G., Newegg
15 July 2010
  • Summary: Heavy. Keep ALL the packaging it comes in, do not throw it away, especially the toner bags.
  • Pros: Good installation manual. Installed and printing/scanning within an hour of receiving it. Print quality is very good for text. Scanner works well for text and photos. Scanning can be done from the unit once software is installed on a computer, can select which computer to send the file to.
  • Cons: Photo printing is a little washed out at first, will have to adjust settings to get good quality prints.

STOP THE MADNESS AND JUST GET IT!

  • Summary: This is the only printer that offers everything a normal human being could ever need--and then some. For those of you wishing to escape from "Dell Hell," this is definitely your ticket out. It actually works! Set-up difficult only in proportion to my ignorance about WEP encoding. Customer service?
