Not up to Brother's normal high standards

FranklinPChelp, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • 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...

Poor Quality and HORRIBLE customer service!!

Marc R. Breitsprecher, Amazon
11 June 2012
  • 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.

Terribly frustrating "non-customer" service; defective; vert poor product quality

ArtF "Artf", Amazon
2 November 2011
  • 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.

Wow, just bad.

Robb Smith, Amazon
14 July 2011
  • Summary: I've owned dozens of printers and it's hard for me to muster the irritation to write a bad review. The printing quality is fine on this printer but the fact that it does not install as a network printer on OS X 10.7 and I have to reset the toner alerts every 3 days make it unusable.

Wireless install requires call to Brother

William G. Pope, Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: I just got off the phone with Brother support. I must say they were very helpful, but this should not have been necessary. I tried doing a wireless install following the instructions on the install disk. The hints on the instructions do not match the display on the printer.

Too difficult to install

Abby1957, Amazon
27 March 2011
  • Summary: This printer does produce beautiful pages - but to date I have only been able to install it on my desktop (Windows 7)with the Ethernet cable attached. After 3 days, I cannot get it installed on either of the laptops (Vista and XP) on my network. It will not install as a wireless printer.

What a piece of crap!

Music Critic, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I thought I would combine the crisp quality and fast printing of my B&W laser printer with the - occasional - need to print color of my ink jet in one unit, and wireless to boot. Well, I'm going to have to think again. Let me get the get the praise out of the way first.

Driver does not install in Windows Vista-Brother Customer service stinks

vivere, Amazon
25 September 2010
  • Summary: After following all the instructions for installation both for wireless and wired mode (separately), at the last step where the Brother software indicated that everything was finished (including intermediate steps when a page was printed correctly), my computer came up with the message that the...

Always offline or asleep!!

Stephen Rutland, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had this product for some time now and have tried to work with its many limitations until now, when I am so frustrated that I am writing a product review for the first time. I wanted a printer that I could use wirelessly - in theory this printer fitted that bill.

Reliably unreliable

Abusam, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this in 2011 to use with Mac & Windows PCs on a wireless network. When it works, it is fine. However, even a small software upgrade to the Windows or Mac PCs makes it throw a wobbly and stop working. Even some other item on the network changing its IP address can bother the Brother printer.
