Short Lasting

hondo, Office Depot
28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Most good posts are from short users about the quality. Scanner takes multiple pages if you aren't there, printer refuses to recognize cartridges when replaced, envelopes print with smudges, warranty only good if you buy overpriced Brother cartridges. When it does work, the color pictures are of good quality. Gonna spend a few more bucks and get a good unit, not another Brother.
  • Pros: Easy to Set Up
  • Cons: Pricey/Poor Value, Jams Easily, Quality, Performance, Slow, lousy warranty

I wanted to like this All-In-One

Bryan, Office Depot
31 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I reviewed this All-In-One elsewhere shortly after I purchased it in 2011 and was very pleased with everything about it. As time went on, I discovered that the machine was regularly cleaning the ink cartridges (which uses ink), though I could see no reason why. After speaking to Brother, they said there was no way to turn this setting off - placing the machine in standby mode doesn't deter it either; it checks the heads daily at 12:00PM regardless.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, quality printing, quality scanning, wireless is easy to set up
  • Cons: automatic ink cartridge cleaning wastes ink

Wait!

OfficeAngel, Office Depot
7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The machine itself is fine, but WAIT! We bought this mostly for fax purposes, because the yield on the ink cartridge seemed to be decent - 300+ pages. Wrong! When it felt like we were going through the black cartridges way too fast, we started to count. Indeed, the yield was only 86 pages! We can't afford to run this machine and will be going back to our old machine which has about a 150 pages yield...still terrible, but better.
  • Pros: Quiet, Design
  • Cons: uses ink very quickly so is very expensive to run.

Disappointed with my first Brother Printer

John O'sullivan "molloymolone", Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: After years of buying Epson printers I decided to switch brands because of Epson's ever increasing efforts to squeeze as many ink purchases as possible from the Consumer. I selected Brother because they have a good reputation however while the MFC-J430W printer produces good quality print and is well made it is very unreliable and unpredictable when it comes to wireless connectivity.

Problema endémico

Margarida Parellada García, amazon.es
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Estaba muy satisfecha con mi anterior impresora multifunción Brother. Ello me llevó a elegir otra de la misma marca. Sin embargo, este modelo tiene un problema que parece no tener solución. El modo de recepción fax/tel no funciona correctamente. La atención prestada por el servicio técnico de Brother fue excelente, pero a pesar de su mucho interés no consiguieron solucionar el problema.
