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: I have had this printer for almost 2 years now and it has worked just fine. Still on original toner, but I print very seldom, which is why this is the perfect printer for me. Inkjets were a problem because I print so seldom the cartridges would always dry out. Today I did finally have to do the cartridge reset that everyone has talked about. Seems to still be printing fine. This printer is a very good value, lots of features and good quality printing for the money.
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've been using this printer for almost exactly two years. It's been my primary printer when I need to quickly print a batch of handouts or other forms...I've printed tens of thousands of pages since I received it. The printer has been exceedingly reliable, needing only cartridge changes and the clearing of a paper jam or two. Print-wise, the output is sharp and clear. About 75% of my printing is in black and white, with the balance (obviously) having some color.
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.
Summary: I have only had this printer a short while, but have been really happy with the prints it produces. I am not professional and have no prior experience with color laser, but the results in my projects have been what I would call amazing! I'm sure the color in higher priced products is finer--but I have owned several of the inkjet printers other reviewers rave over and couldn't get jack from them.

Summary: ** THIS MACHINE NEEDED REPAIR 2 MONTHS AFTER PURCHASE, SEE UPDATE BELOW ** Introduction / History: I already own a Brother MFC-7820N black-and-white multifunction networked laser, which has worked very well for 4 years, with only one change of the toner & drum unit needed in that time. Our occasional color needs were met with an old HP inkjet, or a late night trip to Kinkos, and I print several hundred color photos a year at Ritz Camera.
