Summary: I am very frustrated with this printer. It simply will not print any blue color correctly. Shades like turquoise, teal, sky blue, etc. ALL come out the same color (Royal blue) which is very disappointing to me.
Summary: It prints and the quality is decent. However, whenever it goes into a deep sleep, the wireless turns off and the entire printer falls off the network. The only way i have found to get it to reconnect is to shut the printer down and restart it.
Excerpt: I'd like to give the product a higher rating but I've had issues. The printer has physically worked OK, setup went well, the laser printer design is well done. However, my printed color output is washed-out as if the saturation has been removed and the blacks are not dark enough.
Pros: Durable Construction, Easy Access To Components, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Low toner consumption
Summary: I live mostly in the UK where I purchased the same model Brother after reading the reviews. It was very easy to set up and I like it .very much. Not so this time. I unpacked the printer and started the setup process following the Quick Setup Guide. Almost immediately I encountered difficulties.
Excerpt: This printer was very well-priced, arrived on time, and was easy to unpack for installation. But the software provided (on CD) wouldn't load properly on my fully up-to-date PC. Eventually I was forced to download, from the Brother site, a stripped down printer-driver-only version of the software...
Rollers are defective and disintegrate. Brother is aware of the problem but won't do anything about it.

Summary: Loved this printer while it worked. Unfortunately it either has a very serious engineering defect or it's built to fail. Read the other reviews. All the 5 star reviews will be back soon. I used only OEM toner, had just replaced the starter black and was still on the original colors.
Excerpt: The machine is still new, so I don't know everything about it yet. But set-up was easy. (You don't have to use the wireless feature and I am using a cable instead.) The machine is fast, and does not seem to jam.Photo printing is not as pretty as I'd hoped, though.
Excerpt: As with all printers, laser or inkjet, the cost of replacing cartridges far outpaces the original purchase price. That said, this printer is easy to set up and operate, offers a straight paper path for single pages you do not want to go through the regular "curly" path, which was one of my...
Excerpt: This printer, in general, meets my needs very well. Love the duplex printing, both color and b&w printing is adequate for business use, and it is easy to use. Except for the secondary paper tray, which is used for printing labels.
