Love the printer, but the upkeep and cost of repair is outrageou
24 October 2011
Excerpt: I love the printer, but now I am getting and error message that will not allow me to print because some sponge inside the computer needs to be replaced. Of course this cannot be done yourself, you have to call in a technician at an ungodly rate to come and replace the sponge to allow your printer to work again. Unbelievable that you have to call in an expert to fix a stupid sponge for a home office individual printer. Sometimes good, sometimes slightly faded.
Summary: This item has it all, in a very compact package. It was very easy and straight forward to set up. The print quality is very good and replacement print cartridges are very reasonable. Over-all it is good value and I would not hesitate to recommend this product.
Summary: This is my second Brother printer. I purchased it because my first one performs very well and has all the features I need. I didn't use the wireless feature and have it connected directly to my laptop. Set up was faster on this second printer than my first one because I didn't need the fax feature. The only thing I have a complaint about is the fact that you have to open the paper supply drawer to replace paper. Since I reuse a lot of paper, this is an inconvenience.
Summary: We bought this all in one from Brother when our old Dell A960 gave out suddenly. I was surprised at the low price that I bought it for and I was even happier with the third party ink that was available as opposed to just throwing $30 away from Brother ink. The machine is not noisy at all in regards to printing. With fax, the volume could be adjusted. Also, if you don't have a landline, you could fax using MagicJack, although you have to change the fax setting to VOIP.
Summary: I just got my Brother MFC today and I was worried because of some of the lower reviews. What got me was the ink, it was worth a try with the price of the ink for the other types of printers. Anyways it took about 30 min for me to get it up and running. If you have a wireless router you don't even need the cord to connect it. I opened it up and Read the manual it was very easy to understand. So I followed it step by step. The hardest part was knowing my sidd and password.
Summary: I brought the brother wireless printer and double packs of the ink after my epson cx6400 printer finally crashed. The initial set up of this wireless printer took me a couple of hours and I actually had to call for some help from tech support from my computer company, but after that initial setback, I can't say anything bad about this printer. It works great! I now have it set up for both desktop and laptop.
Summary: The price for the original ink at retail stores is outrageous, fortunately, you can find replacement cartridges for original brother ink online for less than $10 which beats my previous HP ink costs. The only weird thing about this printer is that it prints the first page first, which you have to either take the time to re-organize after printing is completed or sit there and pull each page out as it prints. Besides this, this printer is well worth the money.
Summary: I just bought a MAC and my 13 year old Epson printer won't work with a MAC. I needed a wireless printer. I spent all day and half the night. I finally got most of it working. Every thing works fine with the MAC, scann,fax and printer all wireless. The biggest problem was getting it to work with my windows XP computer. I never got it to work wireless on XP but did get it to print via network cable with the XP. I just hope it last as long as my Epson. I paid $90.
Summary: I bought this printer after my failure to use Cheap refill inks with my HP Photo Premium Printer. I bought this printer for $65 + piano style continuous feed system for $50 ink refill. Since there were limited reviews on refill inks and particular printers I decided on this printer. The experiment cost me about $115 total. And I do have to say it does work, this particular combination this printer with the continuous feed (piano) system.
