Danger, Toner SCAM on Brother Printers

R. Brokers "cracker", Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Brother now has a "hard shutdown" toner detection in its printers to sell more toner. Cartridges are FAR from empty when the toner light comes on. Moreover, the sensor is cheap and breaks easily. My 2240 broke and wouldn't print even with a brand new Brother cartridge installed. If they weren't greedy for dishonest toner sales, this couldn't happen. No printer should EVER have a hard shutdown due to supposedly low toner. Do not support this kind of SCAM. Buyer Beware.

Worthless

Annoyed, Office Depot
25 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I heard Brother printers were good quality. Buying it, I quickly found how the printer is cheaply made. It feels like it could break apart by just trying to install the toner. Printing a test document, I grew increasingly annoyed with the printer jamming. Removing half the stack of paper from the tray, and it still jammed, worst then the previous one. I returned it back.
  • Cons: Jams Easily

dont buy it

Jeff, Office Depot
15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I have been through 2 Brother printers and have had problems with both. I also have a Cannon and an HP and have had no problems. Brother printers are one of those "you get what you pay for" situations. They a less in money cost but higher in aggravation cost. You will buy 2 to 3 of these in the same time it will take a higher cost printer to go out. Don't waste your money or time.
  • Cons: not worth it

Worst printer I have ever owned

Dee t, Officemax
10 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Just rec'd this printer and it's awful. The fan is extremely loud and runs constantly. Sounds like a jet plane engine and you can hear it at the other end of the house with the door closed in my office. And it puts grooves down both sides of my premium laser paper from the rollers. It's my first purchase on Officemax.com and will be my last. It's a terrible product!
  • Cons: Does Not Meet Expectations, loud and groves the sides of paper

Terrible Printer

Paul Rosenberg "Yes, I actually read it befor..., Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: We have owned a few Brother printers, and we like how inexpensive they are. Also, they performed well enough and were reliable. This one, however is the worst printer I have ever used. Frequent jams, numerous errors without seeming cause and a toner cartridge with the lifespan of a housefly. This has been nothing but trouble from day one, but being a printing technician myself, I was able to keep it running through the first 30 days. That was my big mistake.

Wished I hadn't bought it.

Barbara J. Janni, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this printer in April 2013. I haven't had the issue with the overly loud fan that many people reported and I am pretty noise sensitive. What I wish I had known before purchasing this printer is the way the paper feeds. Unfortunately this is something you can't tell by the box until you use it.

Works great .... but is actually a waste of money

Kaina, Office Depot
29 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Overall, this printer is fantastic, however, its one downfall renders it a complete waste of money: After about 18 months, it needs a new drum. No problem, right? Wrong. The drum costs more than $100, while the printer itself is $70. So we are literally buying a new printer every year and half instead of a simple replacement drum. While the printer itself works great, because of this flaw, I'd say it's a waste of money.
  • Pros: Doesn't Jam, Easy to Use, Fast, Easy to Set Up, Performance
  • Cons: Pricey/Poor Value, parts cost more than printer itself
