Summary: I have a HP laptop and wanted to upgrade from my inkjet to a laser printer. I previously bought a Brother color laser printer but it was too big so I sent it back and saw this one in Best Buy for $200. I bought even though it was not color. It was a good buy. However, unlike my HP printer, there is no interface for the desktop for me to use. I visited the website and it gave me the run around.
Pros: It was a very affordable printer
Cons: There is no interface software for your desktop
Summary: Bought this laser printer in January 2013 initially dissappointed with number of copies per toner cartridge (set on toner saver as default), no better than my inkjets also needs new drum every other change making it less economical. Initial wireless connection worked well but stopped working suddenly. Hours on the phone with tech support (they are very patient and seem thouough) end result still no wireless. They said troubleshooting is complete, network is the problem.
Pros: reasonable price, clear print copies
Cons: lost wireless, no resolve from tech support. line through copy & scans, corona wire will not clean
Summary: I have had to replace these 3rd iteration of this MFC laser printer. Though the quality and value for this Brother is excellent, this technical glitch has caused me to replace this MFC 3 times. It simply does not recognize a new toner cartridge, always telling to change out the toner cartridge.
Pros: Printing quality
Cons: Cartrdige sensor does not recognize new toner cartrdiges
