Summary: I've had this for over six years. We've replaced the cartridge a couple times. Printed thousands of simple hand flyers on colored paper for local venues. It's taken a ton of use and being moved, packed, shoved about, accidentally tossed in the garden shed but it still works.
Nice but the network modules failed after three years.

Summary: This laser printer is actually a workhouse. I work from home, and need to print out lots of documents every day. With OEM Or genuine cartridge, it can always meet my expectation. Resolution is good, speed is great. And, it does not so picky to paper type. Two major issues I have are: 1.
Summary: I bought this printer in mid 2008. I don't do tons of printing, but enough that I know I wasted a lot of money printing documents with an inkjet printer for years before I bought this Brother Laser printer. The toner cartridges last and last.
Summary: This printer had to replace an earlier multi-function HP device that wasn't consistently reliable w/Windows7 and using a USB chord adapter. I like the speed of out-put of this new rother Laser printer. Consumables will be a little pricey but are available as refills (i.e. cheaper than OEM).
Summary: We have a bunch of computers in the house, so having a printer connected directly to a computer, then sharing that printer off of that computer, then making sure that computer was on using 150W of electricity and logged in...eh...that's a headache.
Summary: UPDATE, 25 May 2012: Still working great. Original Review: Have had this for several years now, and am still very happy with it. Small foot print, good quality laser printing, inexpensive. If your printing needs are small to moderate, I highly recommend this model.
