Not for manual feeding!

Gail T, Officemax
17 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I print 2 page documents, front and back, on one sheet and it is horrible for that. The manual feed wants to pull it in crooked or says the paper jammed (9 out of 10 times) or it would wrinkle the paper. The manual feed door is only 1" and not long enough to hold the paper in. You have to hold it. Very noisy.
  • Cons: Does Not Meet Expectations, very hard manual feed, wants to jam, wrinkles the paper

Good For Reviews

In Black and White, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: This printer is good if you have a lot of reports to print for review before the final copy. The problem is the paper does not come out flat. It curls from the heat. You then have to put some weight on it to flatten it out.
  • Pros: Doesn't Jam, Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
  • Cons: curls paper

Good overall

  • Summary: Easy model for install and operation, money saver. I prefer the laser since ink did not last long costly to replace. Black and white model serves my requirement. Colour one is too expensive.

Decent but has some issues

Sam, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this through Staples since I needed it in a hurry, but after owning it for several months, there are a few minor problems. One is that the toner doesn't always affix to the paper properly, so it tends to "brush off" of the sheet when rubbed. This is especially true with any cotton type of paper.

Good value for the price

Van C. Smick, Amazon

  • Summary: If all you need is a monochrome printer then this is a good deal. It is cheaper to operate because it is laser and unlike the color version, it costs a lot less to purchase AND operate. It also has a toner saver mode for rough drafts -- although that mode IS harder to read because it is so light. All in all, it appears to be a good solution for a very inexpensive printer.

Disappointed

pirate, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: This printer worked just fine into the second cartridge. The "toner out " light came on while the print quality was still good (it got real faint with the original cartridge) and even though I installed a new cartridge, the light would not go out. I went to the Brother troubleshooting site, but it was no help. My big disappointment is that a machine that was working fine just bailed on me.

Greedy for ink

Buyer from NY, Amazon
29 January 2013
  • Summary: The printer goes through ink like there is no tomorrow. We had about 20-25 Brother printers in different models installed in our office in the last few years. This is the first time I have to replace the toner so often. I tried to reset the sensor. However, nothing helps. Out of curiosity, I took 3 "empty" toner cartridges from this printer and installed them into Brother 2230 printer. I printed settings and guess what..
