Summary: I bought this machine to replace my previous Brother DCP135c machine which was very good till it died on me after years of good service. I am delighted with this machine which appears to be as good as it's predecessor and is very reasonably priced. The ordering and receipt were excellent.
Summary: Had the printer for just over a week and it seems to do what its supposed to do without any problem,really quiet and prints at a good speed,colour is not fantastic but reasonable,LCD display a tad small and one needs to stand up to read it,wish the colour of the printer was black instead of white but I can live with it,will be interesting to see how long the ink cartridges last,overall good value for money.
Summary: I would have given a 5 star review if this printer had a screen that tilted up. Because it does not tilt I have to stand up every time I print because I can't read the writing on screen. When I do read the screen, the wording is very faint and because the printer is positioned in front a a window I have to shade the screen to read it. Pity the screen can't be 'yanked' out and re-positioned so that it can be tilted.
Summary: Paper goes inside in a carrier which is fiddly and means you can't see when its run out, but it does mean the printer can go on a shelf, it doesn't need to be on a work top, unless you want to open the top for photocopying of course! I haven't had to change the ink cartridges yet, but they are accessible and cheap... The reason I went for this machine.
Summary: We selected this printer specifically because Brother provide Linux drivers on their website. Not just CUPS-compatible drivers for the printing but also for the scanner; scan-to-GIMP works out of the box with Ubuntu 12.10! And I even managed to hack the DEB files around and made it all work on Gentoo, too. The recipient of the printer seems to be adapting well to it after an horrific experience with Lexmark.
