Excerpt: The worst printer I have owned by far. Slow, overall poor performance. This thing drinks ink like wino drinks thunderbird. If you are really on a budget it works, but you will pay much more for ink longterm. I just ended up throwing mine away and buying an hp office jet that has worked much better.
Excerpt: I have a small office for over 15 years and this printer by far has to be the worst I ever purchased. I can't print black if one of the colors is low or out of ink. That should have nothing to do with printing black and white document.
Excerpt: I have no problems with the print quality. I only use this printer occasionally, but every time I do I have to buy new ink. After much discussion with Brother, they claim that ink is used for the cleaning of the ink tubes.
Excerpt: I use my printer about once per week. I have bought 2 sets of new inkjet cartridges already, as they dry up quickly if not used daily. I thought this would be an economical printer for my small home office, but quickly learned otherwise!
Summary: My first printer was a Brothers. It worked great for over five years and I only paid $50 for it. This one was $98 and from the start the printing was sub-par. The quality on fast print is so bad I don't even bother using it. After just 2 weeks of mild use, the ink was dried up.
Summary: This printer is a decent value for the price.. until you run out of yellow ink and want to make a black and white copy. For some ludicrous reason you can't print ANYTHING unless all four cartridges are full, and they really don't last very long.
Excerpt: The worst part about this machine is the way you load the paper, it doesn't hold much and it is such a pain to put more in. I also do not like that if I am trying to print a document with only black- if the color ink is out, it will not print, even though I am not using color.
Summary: This printer has a known problem with reading the level of the ink cartridges. I placed cartridges in the machine and the machine is sending a message that they are empty and will not print. New cartridges were inserted with the same result.
