Not a reliable printer, and more expensive than it would first seem

M. Lichten, Amazon

  • Summary: This looks like a nice printer on paper, but beware! The toner cartridge is good for only 2000 pages, and the machine is set up out of box to prevent you from printing any further once it has decided that the toner is "out"--there's a way to bypass this, but you will need to look online and be...

and it does just fine on text

  • Summary: For what I primarily use it for, this printer is a solid 5. It's fast and efficient; it's very quiet; and it does just fine on text. I haven't bothered with the wifi features, because I can plug in my laptop and print just about as fast. Graphics are underwhelming. It's a $100 laser printer.

Not reliable on Wireless, useless as an AirPrint printer.

Dennis Bradley Price "yeldarb68", Amazon

  • Summary: Doesn't work well on Wireless. I bought this printer because it's on Apple's list of supported AirPrint printers. However, when setting up the printer on Wireless (I don't have a network jack in the location I wanted to put it) I am unable to print to it most of the time because it's asleep.

Wifi Direct is useless!

  • Summary: I bought this for a tad cheaper at an office supply store. I have been loyal to Brother printers for many years now but I gotta say Brother missed the mark on this one. I bought this printer specifically because it had Wifi Direct which I needed to to print from my Ipad at work.

Online without a problem!

  • Summary: Got it online in a flash! HP 102 was on the phone with HP for over an hour with no luck. Was told that they have problems with the cheaper models. The Brother was online with setup and a laptop (Macintosh) within 15 minutes total. Totally satisfied!

Not perfect, but close.

G. Levine, Amazon

  • Summary: The print quality is pretty good, though not as dense in larger solid black areas as my older Samsung. However, it is much quieter and faster. It also seems to load paper more reliably.
