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've had my share of trouble with this printer too! Fortunately I was able to fix both issues most users are complaining about (low toner & wireless) by myself, but only after lots of troubleshooting. First off, wireless.
Good quality and Reasonable price BUT TOUGH INSTALLATION

Summary: This is one of my good printer in terms of good printing quality, reasonable price, save cost per unit printout. Its design and feature are just OK. Its size is so big and heavy actually, really hard to move even I am a big guy. Its feature is so so not thing interesting much.
Summary: Once you figure out how to defeat the toner out message (which is covered elsewhere) this is a decent printer for the price. The manual feed, however, is really, really bad. For starters there's nothing to hold the paper up unattended, so it is literally manual feed.
Summary: I am printing on Kromecoat 12 pt. glossy cardstock. Cardstock will not feed from the normal paper tray and must be fed from the manual feed tray. You must feed the cardstock one piece at a time. This process is very slow and requires constant human interaction.
Summary: Read the other reviews for details about this printer. My problem is that I printed a few hundred pages and then the printer reported IT WAS OUT OF TONER. WTF? The "starter" toner was supposed to be at least a few thousand pages. I made the mistake of buying a new black toner cartridge.
Summary: Frankly I am a little disappointed with the printer. I did a lot of research and thought I had found the right one. It was rated a top performer. As long as you are using regular paper it does fine but I wanted a lazer printer so my ink wouldn't run.
Nice quality prints, high operating cost & bad customer service.

Summary: I just purchased this printer and found the same problem that others have. I got 175 sheets on the starter toners and then around 200 on the next set ($200 per set) (that is way below Brother's advertisement).
Summary: I had a brother B&W printer for over 10 yrs. No issues what so ever. But I wanted a wireless printer. And when I saw the price of this (got onsale for $230), I said "why not color?". First impression was it's BIG. Perhaps not for a color laser, but compared to my old B&W, it was big and heavy.
