Summary: After searching and reviewing I decided to purchase this model printer in May 2013. After setting it up and using it for a couple of weeks the print quality was terrible. So I decided to change the cartridges that came with the initial set up to new Brother cartridges.
Summary: My company has purchased 15 brother mfc's in the past 20 years (construction sites get them dirty & it's more expensive to clean than replace). These units have gone down hill in the past 4 years and so has Brother support. I purchased a unit in June & it's had to be replaced 3 times!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I have an iMac. Brother has not taken the time to create an actual software application for configuring this on an Apple, so therefore I am unable to print at the advertised speed from this printer.
Summary: I received this printer yesterday. I tried to set it up today and it doesn't work. I called Brother to get assistance and after being on the phone for quite a bit of time while they "troubleshot" over the phone they concluded it is a lemon..
Good for design/architecture office drawings and diagrams

Summary: We purchased this unit to print drawings and diagrams at ledger size. Mostly B&W but sometimes with color accents. The color is really underwhelming, and I cant recommend ever using this for image prints. For line art and diagrams it's fine, and is quite cost effective for the base unit and ink.
Summary: I'm a former electronics R&D technician, Electronics Research & Development Technician with an ASEET ( Associate in Science in Electronics Engineering Technology ). I've used this printer for a couple of months now, and unlike the HP Officejet 8500A that it replaced, which worked for 8 months then...
Summary: I switched to Brother from HP because of the terrible HP customer service & good reviews on the Brother. The first 1 they sent jammed repeatedly & could not work to even print a test page even with customer support.
Summary: Terrible printer, when it works. If you don't use it for a week or two, the printer heads have to be cleaned and sometimes they still don't work. The ink also doesn't last very long and if the printer says a cartirdige is low/empty, you can't print anything (not even using only black) until you...
Summary: It is fast and clear. It scans quickly and has great resolution. The ability to scan and print up to 11X17 paper is a nice feature. Two paper trays are good too but I really miss a bypass tray. I FOUND THE BYPASS TRAY. IT'S ON THE BACK OF THE MACHINE.
