Summary: What a great printer for home or small business use. We use it for our home and the print quality is great. The accessibility is great. Wouldn't mind if it was wireless, but there are easy ways around that.
Pros: This price is amazing. Built in network interface (wired) for easy network use without having a print host. Great print quality. Warm up time is acceptable (about 40 seconds). We've had this printer for a year now and the toner lifetime is impressive. It cost's about $40 per toner cartridge to re...
High quality printer, network connectivity at a great price!

Summary: We bought this printer because my wife and I both are in college. We have gone thru 15 reams of paper 7500 pages so far. I have replaced the Black toner cart once. The printer has promted me to replace the black a few times however I just use the reset trick and it keeps on printing.
Summary: The toner comes in black, yellow, magenta and cyan, and each are $40. How this printer ships for $150 and the toner costs $120, it's beyond me, but I'm elated with the price!
Pros: We got this printer for our office where we anticipate a moderate amount of volume being printed. We are using it to print labels, flyers and packaging/shipping information. The software was easy to install on every computer and the picture quality is sharp. We are very happy that we no longer ha...
Cons: I downloaded the linux drivers from the Brother website and haven't gotten them to work yet. However, I am not an advanced linux user and I haven't spent a whole lot of time trying to figure it out. I'm confident the linux drivers work if you know what you are doing, and I have yet to figure it a...
Summary: I've had this same printer since 2009. Here are my stats from the printer its self 8079 total sheets 5736 color 22343 B/W. 24401 images 5384 cyan 4 toner 5696 magenta 4 toner 5270 yellow 5 toner 8052 black 5 toner 469 manual 7610 tray 1 Easily 1/2 of these are a manual, manual duplex, I print one...
Summary: I got a full set of toner refills on (a popular online auction site) for about 70.00 usd, which included (2) black and one of each color and all four reset flag gears. Make sure you get the reset flag gears with the toner refills because Brother starter cartridges need that in order to refill...
Pros: This is a great printer for the cost. It connects as a standalone printer on your home/office LAN whether you're wireless or hard wired. You can configure all of the basic LAN elements, or just hook it up and let your DHCP configure it. It prints well, I even tried some photos which came out bett...
Cons: It has limited RAM, though this is only an issue if you try to print large high resolution color images. Might want a RAM upgrade for that, but then if you want to print such images a laser is probably not the type of printer for you.
Summary: I use this printer with a mac, and I've had no driver problems.
Pros: You can print to this over the network! We use this at home as most people would use an inkjet, except the colors don't smear like ink does and the cartridges last way longer than any inkjet. I got this on sale for $160 so it was great deal too.
Cons: the manual feed tray doesn't hold very many sheets at a time, so if I'm using special paper I usually just put it in the main paper tray face down.
Summary: This printer was highly reconmended by Brother. They said that this printer never break down. Also very good history for not being return. This was my very first time that I ever used Amazon. Everything was perfect. I just place the order in a few seconds and done.
Summary: A Replace Toner Cartridge message can be reset by opening the cover and pressing "Cancel" and "Secure Print" at the same time. You will see "K.TNR-STD" on the screen. You can select a cartridge and press OK twice to reset the cartridge. This will extend the tomer life significantly.
Pros: I've had this laser printer for a while now and it has proved to be very reliable. The setup is easy and requires no maintenance.
Cons: Not supported by the Brother Android app but its big brother is (HL-3040CW).
