Summary: There are small HP color printers at work that cost $300 or more and there is also a large monster color copier/printer and I must say this Brother 3140 prints better than both. It came with starter cartridges that are supposed to print up to 1,000 copies each, so I thought I'd give it a try. How can you go wrong for $180-190 for the printer and 4 cartridges? Think of how many copies you get from that ink jet you have before having to replace them and their cost!
Summary: Sharp color prints and wireless printing is quick and error free. The printer uses page counts to determine the toner status. A single dot of a color counts as a page. When you get the out of toner message, just reset the page count for that cartridge and if toner remains in the cartridge, you can continue printing.
Summary: I've owned nothing but HP printers in the past & after the last one died, I refused to ever buy another product from them again. This left me with limited options since I was shopping on a budget for a wireless, color, laser printer. Luckily, this Brother printer came to the rescue. First off, it arrived almost a week early which is always a plus. Secondly, it was packed great with shaped styro foam pieces inside so the product was flawless when I received it.
Very good printer - but if photo printing is critical use inkjet!! (not laser)

Summary: I have this printer and it does a great job with text and graphics. Photo printing is just OK but that's typical of most color laser printers. If photo printing is critical then go Photo Inkjet or use a professional service. I compared a color photo printout from this printer against my HP and Lexmark color laser printers and I'd put this printer better then HP but below Lexmark but the differences are very subtle and at a few inches away there is no difference.
Summary: The printer arrived well packaged and the instructions were clear. The installation was smooth. My first printouts on 22 and 24 lb laser papers seemed mediocre. Then I tried some of the expensive premium color laser sheets and was startled to see how good they looked. I am a light user and don't print many photos. So I may dump my inkjet if this printer continues to perform at this level.
Summary: Got fed up with Epson Injet problems so decided to try "Lazer" for a change. It took just 5 days to arrive and came with a UK 3 pin plug and an Irish warranty leaflet. Out of the box I could not get it to work wirelessly using WPS but that might be the router although it worked fine with another item recently. So I used the CD supplied and set in up manually and it was off straight away.
