Low Toner Problem

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: I am continuously getting the toner low message, and then it will not print. Doesn't matter if I've just replaced the cartridge. Authentic Brother cartridges. If the problem is Windows, I apologize for the mediocre review. I own two of these. Both having the same problem with different versions of Windows.

Good printer with awful google cloud print documentation

Chilenochoro, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Overall I am happy with the printer it does everything I want it to do for a great price ($100 and $20 gift card). What I did not like so much is the documentation. It is especially difficult to install if you do not have a usb cable and use an Ethernet cable instead. You need to turn on your ssid broadcast function on (if you have it off).

Good for small jobs

  • Excerpt: Using this printer at work. It does not have a paper bypass so we are constantly opening the one paper feed drawer to put in the correct paper. It also has a black line running down the center of the page when using the autofeed for copying or faxing. I've gone online for a fix and it's a common complaint for this machine. I have not found a fix for that problem. If you use the glass top, then the line does not exist.

Doesn't work for me

Paul Leddy, Office Depot
9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: My intention was to purchase a simple wireless printer that would print from my smartphone. I misunderstood the product details. A modem is required. I'm on leave of absence / sabbatical and do not have access to the internet except through my smartphone acting as a hot spot. I'm shipping the printer back for a refund.
  • Pros: Good Value
  • Cons: Difficult to Set Up

Oh Brother

  • Excerpt: The printer works well, however the drawer to put the paper in will not last long with much use because it is quite flimsy. Oh well...

options

MaryG, Staples
20 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I chose this all in one because it had all the options and was wireless to boot! We'll wireless...not so much. Once the test page printed only the copy function was useful. I've reloaded the software 2-3 times and no luck. My home office isn't compatible with a tethered printer. Unfortunate situation but still hopeful for a positive outcome.

  • Excerpt: Very good for the price point. Responds quickly to the print button. However, it is more noisy than my last Brothers printer.
