You get what you pay for!

Kristina, Amazon
16 April 2015
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. I'm not very thrilled with this printer. After set up I had to fool with the color settings for over 5 hours to get it to print anywhere near as nicely and vibrant as my last HP printer which I'm now regretting giving away. I use this for Real Estate. Flyers and brochures.

This printer lasted less than 100 pages!

ROBERT KNOESS, Amazon

  • Summary: Where do I start?!? Others have already mentioned and I can confirm: It is a very noisy machine. It goes to sleep instantly after switching on or printing a page. It jams regularly in the tray or when manually fed.

Product has major defects, or designed-to-fail parts. Brother won't stand behind it at all.

  • Summary: Great features. Junk quality. Used only OEM toner. Was on the first full black replacement and still original starter colors. Fusion roller disintegrated after less than 1200 pages through the printer.

  • Summary: This is my first color laser. I have always bought the monochrome. Paid 199, which i think is a bargain. However, the wireless feature is very difficult to hook up. I still dont have it working. But i would recommend.

This printer is horrible

computerlady, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Just placing paper in the manual feed tray causes a "Paper Jam". Pictures all have lines in them despite following all troubleshooting instructions. We primarily purchased this printer to print photos and we can not get it to print on photo paper from either tray.

expensive and frustrating

Stephanie Zee Fehler "mamazee", Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this because i wanted something reliable, and Brother has a good reputation among homeschoolers for reliability and quality. It was a little more than i would have spent, but i thought "at least this won't need to be replaced in a year".

Jams ALL of the time

bellaphile, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: After using this for about a month, I'm really disappointed with this. I got this printer to replace an HP Laserjet and wish I would've just stuck with that brand. The printer jams constantly, both inside the printer, and in the back as it loops the paper up to the tray.

  • Summary: Do not buy if you want to print photos. Very good on non-graphic printing but poor quality graphics. Avoid purchasing.

beware of batch problem with this printer model

Daniel Chang, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer and when trying to set up wireless printing, the unit displayed an error "Print Unable E1". I'd pull the power cable to reset the printer, only to get stuck with this error when I tried to setup the wireless again.
