Cons: High price of replacement toners. Had a problem with the machine after 2000 copies. All images had a pink tinge to them. Emails between myself and Brother in Sydney resolved problem. They sent me a new Magenta toner and it fixed it. Then got black spots o
Summary: I purchased this unit to replace another same model printer that had just recently died. I have used Brother laser printers exclusively for the last 5 years and have been extremely pleased with the performance. This printer has a rugged heavy feel to it. Print speeds are very quick and noise factor is minimal. As with most printers though, the expense for consumables is expensive compared to the fairly purchase price point for the initial investment in a printer.
Pros: #1 it is a great network printer. I put it on and even my wife can print to it even though she is in a differnt work group. #2 It does a great job on color, and black is a little slow but hey $350 I am happy.
Cons: A replacement set of toner is the same price of a new printer. So I will just buy a new printer since they dont let you refill the toner cartridge. I would rate this higher if each toner wasnt $100 and there are 4 in it.
Good overall printer-Read this review before you buy

Summary: This printer is great-especially when it was on sale 50%. That was the reason I chose this one. It is also great because it comes with regular yield cartilidges instead of starter. What I did not like was the huge and heavy design without the bright colors. The colors seemed a bit dull compared to on screen. The print quality was just "reasonable" for this reason.
