Good while it lasted

jackilb, Staples
26 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Ordered this printer in October of 2012. Only replaced toner 4 times over the 1 year and 10 months it worked. Now it wants a new drum. I can buy a new printer for less than the drum. Staples sells the DR420 Drum replacement for $109.99. The printer is advertised today for $99.99.

Wireless is difficult, software is less user friendly than the past, and scanner is awful

Desert Duck, Amazon

  • Summary: I am editing this review because I really tried to like it. First off, let me just say I am a huge fan of Brother printers. I currently have a monochrome all in one laser printer that I cannot speak highly enough (DCP7040).

Bad choice for our needs

., Staples
25 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This printer would be appropriate for light, basic print jobs. It is temperamental and tries the patience. When switching from plain paper to checks or letterhead, it is highly unpredictable as to which direction it wants the paper to go in this time.

OK

Grams, Staples
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I have tried following the printed directions, but cannot connect the printer wirelessly. Can't even connect using the USB cable. I'm sure that this is a wonderful product, if I can just get it to operate.

Curled Paper

  • Excerpt: Bought this printer to do large black/white print jobs and ended up with destroyed documents. The printer curled the paper badly. Multiple contacts with Brother and using their FAQ suggestions did nothing to stop the curling.
  • Cons: Paper Curl

Won't Connect

russell mcallister, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I tried every method outlined in the manual to connect the printer to my wireless network and it failed to connect. I see everyone else loves the printer, me too - particularly the price. I have a wireless HP inkjet that I'm getting rid of and I connected it to my network in less than 3 minutes.

A lemon from Brother

D. Wood "ATL", Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: This is our third Brother printer; we've liked them since they've been good network/WiFi printers that produce quality copies/prints with relatively low toner costs. Efficiency is important since my wife teaches and unfortunately has to do lots of printing on our dime.
