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.
Summary: As the title says for the price it is okay. Remember that it doesn't come with a scanner! I forgot this. The big issue with this printer is that to print double sided you have to feed the paper in from the sides and they get jammed easily - so one sided printing all the way! No saving of forests for me!
Summary: I ordered this printer to replace my 2 years new HP laser. I can see a huge different in the printing quality in comparison to the HP. This machine do not print well on solid background. Color comes out dull in all settings. It is only a touch better than my old Brother inkjet printer. Wireless set up was quite easy. It runs very fast and quiet. This machine is very heavy and quite big which is not recommended if desk top space is a concern.
Summary: Color print quality is bad, black text is fine. The driver CD did not work on Mac, I had to download mac drivers from brother website. Windows installation worked well. If I'd known color prints are this bad, I'd rather went for an all-in mono laser printer with double side printing for cheaper or a more expensive color laser. Regarding the fact that the color prints are basically useless, the printer is not cheap at all, I expected more.
