A great printer -- if you hate money

Monica "MPatitucci", Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I like this printer's performance, but the toner issue is ridiculous. It's out of toner constantly, and we don't print very much. Toner isn't cheap. Most recently, it wouldn't let us print anything in black and white because the yellow toner was low. Spend your money elsewhere.

WARNING: Don't ever buy from Brother!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I have 2 Brother printers, neither of which works right. One came slightly damaged (the front panel is bent and does not close properly), and could not get it fixed or replaced. And forget about customer "service".

Terrible support for Linux / ubuntu

Marty D., Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: This printer is a nightmare to get to work on Ubuntu. I contacted Brother concerning this and all they do is point you to a printer driver page. Check the web virtually no one is getting this printer to work on Linux.

Oh Brother, Is This Printer A Giant Rip-Off Or What?

Chris McMorrow, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: As I have been pleased with Brother printers in the past, I bought this with the expectation that, since it was supposed to be a high volume color printer, I'd get a couple of thousand pages before I'd have to replace the cartridges. WRONG!

DON'T BUY THIS PRINTER!

Emily Maher "squark", Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this printer 1 year and 3 months ago. It has been a pretty good printer. However, the printer stopped working and displayed the error "Print Unable 73". I googled this and tried a few things to no avail.

Says it's low on ink when it still has at least 1/3 left.

Renita Anderson "Rande", Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought three of these for my office and have regretted it. I've had them for about a year now and seems like I'm always hearing that they are low on toner. It doesn't even tell you which toner is low. If I perform a reset on the toner, I get about half back so I can use it longer.

Think twice before purchasing this not worth the money!

Judy, Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this product in July 2011 but did not want to make any snap judgements so waited 5 month hoping it would get better as I got more proficient with the printer as it is complicated.

Ridiculous

A. Schell, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: This thing jams up so much it isn't usuable. Out of FIFTEEN pages I tried to print I got exactly one, and it was smeared. I wish I never bought this piece of junk.
