Good buy for the money.

  • Summary: The printer was a very good buy for the money. It worked well right out of the box. I have had Brothers printers for over ten years and I have had extremely good luck and I do not think that this printer will be any different.

Don't by it please

Don't really like it, Amazon
25 August 2012
  • Summary: I have had this fancy printer for 1 year for my personal home use; it is a wireless printer, but very hard process to be installed, I finally connected it by usb cord. Very expensive ink which doesn't last enough. Hard time for alignment. Sorry but don't buy it please.

Where is all the ink going?

Your Number One Fan, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought this last July so I've had it for a little less than a year. I mainly got it so that I could send faxes for my job. In the time I've had the machine, I've printed less than 50 documents, yet the ink is supposedly gone. Every time I turned the machine on (maybe once or twice a week because I quickly tired of the "auto-clean" function) the ink levels would drop slightly. The last time I printed something, each ink cartridge was around 1/8 full.

A reliable all in one printer

Dustin Farahnak, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: EDIT: I needed to use this printer, and because one of the color ink cartridges was too low, the printer refused to perform a black and white copy or otherwise function whatsoever. I bought black ink, replaced that cartridge (noticing then that the old cartridge of black ink was full) and the printer still refused to perform a black and white copy because of the color ink level. I feel pretty clever because I figured out a rudimentary hack to override this ink check.

Nothing special 3/5

  • Summary: I didn't use the fax feature on this "All-in-one" printer, so I am going to count that out. Setup: The printer supports connectivity with upto 2 computers. Connection to my desktop computer, which is connected to the modem using a wired connection (but is also capable of wi-fi functionality) was fairly painless. I used wireless networking to achieve this.

You need to understand the Brother model numbers

R. White, Amazon

  • Summary: I've used Brother printers for my daily workhorses for years - my current one is their big 6490 two tray, 11x17 model. I bought a model similar to this for my college age niece. What you should know is that all the compact Brother inkjets use the same mechanism and give about the same results; their differences are in the accessories.

Impressed with the capabilities for the price

DBucci, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: It was easy to set up this machine, I have my desktop and my notebook computer connected to it as the default printer and for the most part has been very happy with the performance. The control panel with LCD screen is convenient and intuitive. I like that the ink status monitor is visible on the screen so it is easy to keep track of ink levels and through Amazon the LC-61 ink cartridges are very reasonably priced.

Solid performance for home or small office

M. Boone, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: I am extremely pleased with this printer. I am comparing it to Kodak and HP printers I've used in the past, and for my current needs this is perfect. I have been using it for the past few weeks at work, printing a variety of reports and making copies, but I have not tried the fax functionality since I do not have an extra phone line.
