Summary: I use all features of this machine. I've owned it since Feb. of 2011 and can't recall a single jam. Input auto-feeder works flawlessly with letter size docs. Haven't tried odd sizes. My rating is partly based on the price I paid.
Pros: VG image quality, outstanding customer service, reasonable toner refill cost, excellent paper handling.
Cons: Wired networking not easily accomplished. I gave up on it and use Windows printer sharing which works fine. But, that means scanning has to be done only to the host machine via USB.
Summary: Almost forgot to add that the energy saver feature works great too. Machine wakes up on it's own on print jobs over the net and can put right back to sleep by pressing energy saver button on front panel. Checked with kill-a-watt and uses only 2 watts when in energy saver - sweet.
Pros: Very nice MFC. I don't need color printing and can't stand inkjet. I print online receipts, rebate forms, tax docs, shipping labels (paper), driving directions, etc and this machine works great for me. Auto-duplex is awesome and color scanning to a remote winxp machine works just fine. If you can...
Cons: No wireless but I can live without it, would only be a convenience.
As a basic network printer it seems decent for the price (PC)

Summary: Owned this printer about a year. I've never used the scan nor using it to SEND faxes so I cannot comment on those. For basic copying it seems to work just fine. For basic network printing (PC) and receiving faxes it seems to work as expected about 95% of the time.
Summary: Seems some people think if it does not cost a lot it is ok for some of it not to work, not my theory. I expect all of it to work in an acceptable manner but not be able to stand up to heavy use.
Pros: Hardware seems good for the moderate use I normally do. Knowledge that the people who wrote the software & drivers were taken to the ER for laughing fits when the software was approved for customer use.
Cons: Web interface missing field to set time and it also displays the machine as model other than a 4370 as do some of the drivers. The sheet feed does skew sometimes but it is the one I have had yet my 3rd low price machine. Sent support a question and they replied back telling me to do what I stated...
Pros: My wife works from home (medical billing) & I purchased this for her home office. I caught it on sale for $149.00 and I am very satisfied, as is she. It prints, copies, scans & faxes. It's not loud and the print quality is very good, prints fast.
Cons: I have noticed that when using the auto feeder, the sheets do not always feed in exactly straight and this results in a slightly crooked image. However, this isn't a $800 - $2000 unit either.
Summary: Not sure how to get higher scan resolution than 600 dpi like the box advertised. Need CD to install driver for shared printing. All in all, the best value for those looking for a sheet fed scanner and fax machine. With aftermarket tonor it is cheap enough to use as a printer.
Pros: Reasonable price after rebate. $30 toner from tonerinstock.com. Cool duplex printing but not scanning. It scans and faxes. Flatbed scans are fast. It doesn't need ink to scan like many non-laser units.
Cons: As I was warned the sheet feeder yields crooked scans. The scan interface is quirky and the default settings are not as nice as the Brother MFC240C it replaced. Noisy. Network scanning limited to 300 dpi - use USB scanning for 600 dpi.
Summary: It does exactly what I want except when I disconnect the printer and plug it back in, sometimes the printer is not recognized. I just need to turn off the printer, turn it back on without the USB plugged in, then plug in the USB and it works.
Pros: - Looks nice - Good Features - Priced Right - Can print double sided - All In One - Energy Star
Cons: None really for me, it is just what I needed.
