Summary: Great bang for the buck. Brother toner cartridges are by far the easiest to re-fill with powder, because they have an easily accessible re-fill plug on the side... unlike HP, Canon. etc, that have sealed cartridges and embedded microchips to discourage refilling. For about $70 on Ebay, you can buyer a five color toner kit and re-fill these on the cheap, which will literally save you thousands of dollars over the life of the printer, compared to buying new cartridges at...
Summary: However if you use non-Brother toner cartridges or to get all the pages out of your toners that you paid for, you will need to find out about the trick to resetting the page counters for each cartridge. Here it is: Open the front cover that exposes the toner cartridges. The "Cover Open" message appears on the printer. Press the "Cancel" and "Secure" buttons at the same time. You will now see the secret toner counter reset menu.
Summary: Normally I don't bother with reviews, and I was very nervous about purchasing this printer as I had already recently purchased and Epson 3880 wide format printer (I'm also very impressed with that one, but it's for a different purpose). Anyway, I am very pleased with the: Easy setup Great Brother quality Excellent print quality Great paper handling The colour is perfect for what I need.
Summary: The printer works great. I did a lot of research before I bought this printer. There is a problem with it that is keeping me from giving it a five stars. I have been working with Brother on this issue though. The problem has only been giving me trouble on the MAC now. The Windows Vista and XP have seem to have been worked out. But MAC is still having issues. The issue is the printer won't wake up on the wireless network.
Summary: After the hassles keeping inkjet printers going, this has become, far and away, the greatest fun toy I have ever had. I have gone through one set (all 4 colors) of toner cartridges, so I have an idea how expensive this printer is to work with. It is far more economical than the inkjet, has taken almost no fussing to keep it going and has so many time saving features it is unbelievable.
Summary: This printer is fast and stable, providing a high quality product for not a lot of money. If you are looking to upgrade your small-to-medium-sized or home office to a color laser, we recommend this for sure. The extra paper tray is really nice, allowing us to quit worrying about changing out the paper size or leaving the wrong size in there.
Summary: I grew tired of the care required by ink jet printers. I've bought multiple ink printers for $100+ before and usually they died in a matter of 1-1.5 years due to nozzles clogging up. You really have to print every other day to keep ink jet printers from drying and this is way to much of a requirement for me as a home user. Also the cost of ink per page is pretty high. So I decided that this is the good time to buy one of them laser printers.
