"Not very impressed"

delicasey, CNET
26 September 2010
  • Pros: Prints fast. Very quiet.
  • Cons: Not very old and already blotches on paper. Color is extremely ordinary compared to previous KonicaMinolta. Ink shows out way before actually out.

"I agree with emmettwade69"

17 August 2010
  • Pros: none report your problems to BBB in Brodgewater NJ 08807. I filed my complaint the other day
  • Cons: Too expensive to keep up for what I paid for it. The only thing that goes out on them are the consumables and they are not warranted. The drum in 235.00 from Brother. All 4 toners cost around 400.00 to keep up.

Brother printers are not Scottish

tech_alchemist, Ebay
2 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought a Brother HL-4040CN at the local big box office supply store to print invoices and business cards in color. The price was right and the prints were beautiful in the store. Over the course of a year and TWO months, it ran fine. The week before it died, I checked the page count... 480 pages. Then one morning I turned it on and only the fans spun. Otherwise, nothing. I called Brother and they were totally unwilling to help.

"Very high cost of ownership."

bradlangdale, CNET

  • Pros: Good print quality
  • Cons: The printer forces you to replace toner cartridges, ap. $300, based on a page counter, regardless of actual toner usage. I am paying ap. $.15 per page for color ink, irregardless of how much color ink is actually being used.

"Print colour different from screen and other printers"

squigg0432, CNET
9 October 2008
  • Pros: If colour isn't an issue. Printer seems reliable and efficient.
  • Cons: Colour prints darker than any of our other laser printers and means that we would have to readjust all our flyers and marketing material.

Nichts als Scherereien

LOTSOF, Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Habe von Anfang an nur Scherereien mit diesem Drucker gehabt. Die Telefonate mit Brother haben nichts gebracht, außer die Weigerung, die '3 Jahre Vorort-Garantie' wahrzunehmen. Alle telefonisch ausgeführten Anweisungen: Keine Verbesserung. Das Druckbild für Fotos: Mies. Der Ärgereien sind - gesamt gesehen - viel zu viele. Jetzt muß er weg, das Leben ist zu kurz um sich ständig über solche Unzulänglichkeiten ärgern zu müssen. Adieu Brother!

Mangelhafter Service

M. Kaluza "- Der der gerne lacht", Amazon
28 September 2010
  • Summary: Wir benutzen dieses Gerät seit ca. 8 Monaten. Das Gerät hat nun erst ein paar Tausend Seiten gedruckt und der Toner ist 1 x gegen neuen Original-Toner von Brother ausgetauscht worden. Seit einigen Tagen ist das Druckbild sehr schlecht. Es gibt viele weiße Flecken in dunklen Druckbereichen. Nach zahlreichen Telefonaten mit Brother wurden wir - obwohl ja angeblich ein 48h Vor-Ort-Service besteht - aufgefordert, die Drucktrommel und den Toner an Brother einzusenden.
