Summary: I've had the printer for a little over a little under a year now and I have to say this has been a real lemon. I've used brother printers for some time and always favored them when I've needed to buy a printer and so when I opened a small business in which 1 needed a color laser printer I opted for this one. Initially the printer worked as is should but after a very short period of time, I got a warning that I needed to replace the black in toner.
Summary: I have been using this printer as my backup color printer for over 16 months. The original color cartridges lasted the full 16 months because I only print about a dozen sheets a month in color. I just went to change my cartridges for the first time (cost me $200 for new Brother OEM cartridges) and the release button on the Yellow drum broke so I cannot replace the yellow cartridge.
Summary: For the price and size, this printer has excellent quality. Replacing cartridges is a little expensive, but that will be true of any printer. I have another Brother black-and-white printer that I use as my workhorse - most of what I print is just text. When I specifically need to print in color, I switch to this model.
Summary: The printer was easy to set up and install on all printers. I use it attached to the home network with an ethernet cable, and it has had no problems whatsoever. The print quality is outstanding.
Summary: This is a great light to medium duty laser printer. I use one in the office that prints about 200 full color pages per week. I also have the same model in my home office that rarely gets used. Both machines perform flawlessly every time.
Summary: I purchased this printer a month ago and have loved from day 1. It was simple to setup on my wireless and get everyone using it. The quality is wonderful and I have had no issues at all with its operation, which is light duty.
Summary: NOW THIS IS A PRINTER!!! As many others have said before me, I was frustrated with the cost of inkjet supplies and decided to invest in a color laser printer. Now the search was on!! After reading everything available, I decided on this Brother printer. Ordered it at a great price thru an Amazon seller and received it quicker than I ever would have imagined! Set-up was a breeze, everything went exactly as it should, done in a few minutes.
Terribly frustrating "non-customer" service; defective; vert poor product quality

Summary: Printer broke down within 7 months of purchase and with very light use (maybe one ream of paper in all 7 months). I called their 800 number warranty service and was told to take to a local authorized service center nearby after failed telephone troubleshooting procedures which were non-sensicial. After one week at the local repair center and several calls, I was told that parts were needed but not be repaired unless I provided a "reference number".
