Excellent printer—at first. Then the problems began . . .

Summary: When this was working, it was amazing. The laser printing was crisp, quick, and dependable. The wireless interfacing with our other computers and even my iPhone was fantastic. However, after 10 months of service as the central printer in our household, the upper fuse roller thingy melted with an irregular shape which now "embosses" a pattern on every page that's printed.
Summary: This is a good, solid printer. We had been using Okidata C610 because it printed on super heavy stock and was very fast. This one is slower and definitely not as solid but it does the job. Pros: Wifi is easy to set up, does iPhone/iPad direct print, good quality, fast once the job is started (if single job) Cons: first print takes long (20s), if job is a lot of single pages it pauses in between each for 5-8s, not as solid, screen is not backlit (so unreadable in low...
Summary: We have had small issues since we got this printer. We have tried generic toner after the original brother toner ran out and still not fix. It will not have a clean picture and some times it will deposit extra toner on the picture and not heat it up enough to seal it in. It does not happen on every page we print, but If we do pictures, when we first bought the printer it was pretty common. It has gotten better with use though.
Summary: This thing is a monster. Wish I would of spent more money for a newer model so I could have desk space! Cartridges are absurdly priced too, but that seems to be the case with all laser color printers unfortunately.
Prints well, wireless is dubious, Google Cloud Print support doesn't work

Summary: I spent a while getting it going as a wireless printer, and I actually got it to print a few pages, but it seems to go to sleep in some way that can't be woken by wireless. So (as far as I could tell, and mind you, I was using Ubuntu Linux not Windows or Mac), the only way to print wirelessly was to (a) turn it off and back on, (b) walk back to your computer and print. USB printing, however is flawless.
Summary: The 'Quick Start' manual could have been written better; it assumed you knew where to find the model number. There were other places that could have been improved as well. The user interface leaves a bit lacking. First, the power button is flush with the top of the printer. While this is an aid to not accidentally turning it off, the button is small and you need a thin object to depress it. You have to hold it down to turn it on and to turn it off.
Summary: This printer has everything I want, BUT maximum paper weight is 43 lb. My card stock is 110 so it will not print greeting cards. Bummer. Info is from pdf spec sheet on Brother site. It does have a manual 1 sheet feed, which many don't have.
Summary: It doesn't print right in documents from internet. Each line cut about 3/4 inches short. - There are about 5 or 6 letters missing from each line. There is no instruction on how to make adjustments / or scale to fit on screen. Printing photo is OK. I am disappointed.
