Low initial cost but quirky network connectivity and short toner life ruin the value proposition

Summary: I have had Brother printers before and knew there would be trade offs like short toner life and horrible drivers. This one didnt disappoint in that regard. Although it was remarkably easy to install on my wired network, we were never able to get it to print wirelessly from anything.
I have had this printer before and like it very much

Summary: I have had this printer before and like it very much. But some kind of part broke inside, and it cost more to replace than get a second hand replacement. Unfortunately, the item I received was described as being in very good condition, but it is clearly defective, as it will not print.
Summary: wireless was a bit difficult to master at first due to having a server in the office but other than that a great printer that saved buckets on ink cartridges. I buy the toners online as well, they are aftermarket ones but work great.
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...
Summary: We have a Brother MFC B/W machine so we figured this one would probably be as good. Not true. It does an OK job. Very difficult to setup the wireless networking and runs out of toner really quickly.
Summary: i have had this printer now for 3 months and it has been great. the wifi setup was effortless with the provided software, and i have had no problems gettings any of my devices to print. windows , linux , mac , ipod , android. all have printed perfectly.
