Summary: Had it for a couple years, still on the starter toner pack. I think maybe a few packs are getting low on ink, but I'm not sure, since I used the method to reset the counter on it that I've read on google. So it's worked out great, the pages look great and it prints pretty quickly. It's tough too since my cat likes to jump on it a lot (he thinks it's a step stool to get up to another part of the desk), and it still works fine.
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. Googling for the reset let me find this 1. Open the front cover that gives you access to the toner. 2. Press both Secure Print and Cancel at the same time.
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 side, put the paper back in tray 1 and print the other side. Not as nice as auto-duplex but also not as expensive as a color/duplex printer.
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. If you want to buy from Amazon its quick, easy and shipped fast. I reconmend to anybody who wants to used Amazon. You don't be a computer smart to use Amazon.
Summary: Setting the printer up as a network printer on our home network was very straight forward. Text and graphics printing is very good for the price of this printer. The only con is having to purchase more memory for the printer, as it will not print a medium size graphics file with the memory shipped with the printer.
