Great color laser. Quiet, boots up fast. Prints forever.

Kevin Quattro, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: I was wallowing in the world of pricey ink jet printing for years. I came across the cheaper color laser crowd only recently. I knew I needed Apple AirPrint support and found this Brother. It's great! It's quiet, works with AirPrint and works with my wireless network flawlessly. It powers up quick, prints clear and sharp, and is quiet. It's also not overly LARGE. I also like the color prints. Splurge for glossy laser paper and it looks even better.

No drama, just great prints

D. V. Beck "DVB", Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: If you don't need a scanner or copier, this is a great, cost-effective printer. Set-up was a snap. The toner cartridges are very easy to deal with (much easier than the ink cartridges in my old ink-jet.) Wireless set-up was also pretty simple (one thing to be aware of - when installing the driver, be sure to select "bonjour" if you want to use wireless.) The print quality is at least as good as ink-jet, and the laser process "fixes" the ink on the paper.

Fast, and good color

George D. Robertson, Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: Now, brother has a bit of reputation for being a little confusing on the setup , and while they have gotten better on this, the problem sitll lingers a bit. Not the most intuitive of setups, and the software from their website doesn't clarify much, there's about 6 different programs available for d/l, and you're never quite sure which one you need to get this done.

So far, so good

Mick, Office Depot
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this printer from Office Depot at a good price and so far, I am fairly pleased. I needed a color laser for the occasional printing of color CD labels and inserts. The inserts need to be printed on stiff, heavyweight paper and so I feed the paper through the front port of the computer, rather than from the paper tray.
  • Pros: Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance

works great

Glenda Collins, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: A bit tedious (and had to visit several websites to get it figured out, cursed a lot) to set up for a "cloud print ready" printer. (At least it didn't require a second computer to set up). Feature I like best - goes to sleep instead of turning off between uses - don't have to go in other room to turn on.

great except for the WiFi setup

Jane Austen "awordlover", Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Once running, this thing is very good and excellent value. But for me, setup for WiFi was very difficult (> 1 hour), and certainly not helped by the hopeless instructions. That's the reason for the missing 5th star. My old Netgear router does WPA, but NOT WPS (which enables automatic setup), even though the stupid Brother installation software thought it did. So if you have ordinary WPA security on your WiFi, but not WPS, do it this way.

so far so good

Carol Lindsay, Amazon

  • Summary: I've only had this printer for a couple of weeks but the color is good. It was easy to set up and it's quiet and fast. This is the third Brother I've had they seem to only last two or three years. Hopefully this one will last longer.

SATISFIED SO FAR

C. Dale Leacock, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I have not used this printer long enough to be able to give it 5 stars. However, the setup was straightforward and I got the wireless to work immediately. Text seems crisp however, I guess as expected the pictures are merely moderate. The one setback in this machine is the inability to handle heavier paper like card stock. Text is great and the printer would be useful so long as you are not needing to produce high quality documents containing pictures.
