Flimsy and Slow

Rosalie, Staples
18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: We've had this printer for a few months for our small business. While the copies are decent, the printer takes an absurd amount of time to start printing a job and to recover from each printing (scanning, faxing) session. The printer itself is very cheaply made. The components all feel like they are going to break when I have to adjust anything (or fill the paper tray--the tray is amazingly flimsy).Something that makes this a truly bad choice for a small office printer...

Unbelievable - Brother Printer

RCannon125, Office Depot
27 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned and used just about ever printer out there. I have never spent so much time trying to make it do specialty projects. Every time I use it something new goes wrong that I have to find a work around or take it physically apart to find the sensor, problem, jam or paper tray error. While it is easy to setup and use it not worth it. Every time I need for a major project (work) I spend more time troubleshooting the problems than printing.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Set Up
  • Cons: Pricey/Poor Value, Jams Easily, Quality, Performance, Slow

Possibly the worst printer I've ever purchased

Denise_AIS, Amazon
25 March 2013
  • Summary: Printer jams easily, it is not easy to change paper sizes and the paper tray does not hold the amount of paper indicated by the guides...the paper tray guides are loose and paper is prone to jamming...an error message on the printer repeatedly indicates there is paper in the front and rear of the printer with instructions on how to remove the paper, the only problem is there's no paper jammed in the front or rear..

Low Quality Low Price

R, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: I just bought this printer. I've been through every hardware and software setting, and this printer is a waste of your time. Like many people I experienced half printed pages. Then the printer automatically reprints with no success. Colors have a washed out look even on high quality. After cleaning and alignment of the print heads, white streaks, poor half-toning, and general fuzziness plague the print quality. I've owned 3 brother printers in the past.

Booklet Printing on 11x17 Does NOT Work

Sharpie134, Amazon
25 October 2012
  • Summary: First let me say I have a small business with more then 20 printers of all brands so I know who makes the best printers and generally Brother makes a great printer for the price. I make booklets on 11x17 size paper and wanted to start printing these in house rather then going to the local print shop. Seams reasonable all I needed is a printer that could print 11x17 duplex. The Brother MFC-5910dw seams to fit the bill.

Unreliable

Consumer Opinion, Amazon
23 September 2012
  • Summary: Unreliable Days after receiving the printer and working with the printer, the self-diagnostic detected major issue and shut-off machine. Replaced two times by manufactured. Typical error messages Unable to Init and Screen init. Fail. The third machine is again malfunctioning. At this point I am tired of calling factory support. In addition the last problem was distortion on scan and fax documents with vertical lines plus an error "Unable to Init.AF".

Installation problems

Eve, Staples
29 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The drivers for this printer refused to install properly on my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit machine. Brother tech support was pleasant, but had no answer regarding why the printer driver wouldn't install, and said it was a Microsoft error so I should call them. I them downloaded the Mircosoft updated drivers and the printer still refused to load properly. I had to exchange the machine for an Epson All-In-One, which installed perfectly the first time.
