Summary: The printer works fine but was not new like the add said and all the printer toner cartriges were opened and used when installed they all said low very dissapointing had to buy new ones so watch the adds better and good luck when it says NEW.
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. I can't speak to others here, but I found if this printer isn't using a static IP on your network, you're going to lose connection and have to reinstall the driver often.
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. However, it makes me happy when I face how fast it can print. :) I think it quite noisy when it printing. Brother should minimize its size and makes it more quiet.
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. Next, you must not insert the paper before the manual feed message appears, else you get a paper jam message. Same is true if you do not insert the paper far enough when it's finally ready...
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. I calculated the maximum print speed with letter-size cardstock at 3 or 4 sheets per minute, not the 17 pages per minute advertised. The other big problem is that my cardstock comes out with a pronounced curl.
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. Then after it printed a few pages, it said the magenta cartridge was out of toner! I was trying to print black!
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. I like doing alot of diferent projects that require a lot of different papers.
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). The printouts were color presentations 8x10, but I used to get over 2500 per set with my old HP 2500L laser. Brother's help line is a joke! I waited 45 minutes+ 3 times and never got through. I would not recommend this printer to anybody that prints alot.
