Summary: This is an excellent printer. It's easy to set up except for connecting the wireless, but I can do that manually. My friends who come to house, love to use the printer and it looks professional and very easy. When trying to print out the envelope, it printed with a bit wrinkle on the envelope.
Summary: Wow is it heavy - I feel sorry for my UPS guy. At least I have a cart, and begged my wife :) If I have another opinion, I'll make sure I update the comments when my opinion changes. But right now, I'm impressed!
Pros: Not exactly easy to install on my network, but after I quit the beer and ate dinner it was a lot smoother. 'sides that I was a lot stronger :)
Cons: The 'Quick Start' was really confusing. Too many options. I don't like the 'Secure Easy Setup'. My network, I'll control it! So ended up doing it from the LCD menu. Appears I need to set the duplex settings for each print even tho' I told the printer (via the LCD menu) to always duplex. Thats why...
Summary: I really like the wireless connectivity feature. Now all four of my computers on my wireless network can print on this printer. Duplex printing is also a plus, saving paper. Print quality is excellent for a color laser printer.
Summary: This has been a terrific printer for me. I found that all of the low toner indicators flashed together at about 1,400 pages or so. HOWEVER, after resetting the indicators (simple process through the front panel), they now work individually for each cartridge.
Pros: Fast, Inexpensive, Low cost-per-page, Duplex works well, Wireless access makes it very convenient, Very good text quality, Adequate photo quality for a laser printer, Great design makes it very easy to replace toner cartridges and drum unit
Cons: Wireless setup requires that you know what you're doing, Low toner indicators may initially indicate all cartridges need to be replaced when they don't (see below), It's heavy (70 lbs., I think?)
Fantastic quality for the price - nothing comes close to it

Summary: I compared the quality to a $6,000 unit. VERY LITTLE PRINT QUALITY DIFFERENCE!!! It is a very good printer and you can find compatible toner cartridges very cheap, but I suggest sticking with the original toner replacements, it may cost a little more but in the long run the units print quality will...
Summary: I have not had this printer for an long time, but so far, it's GREAT.
Pros: Great print quality. Your not going to rival ink jets on photo prints, but this is still a great print quality. Not quite print to edge, but pretty close. My drum came with a little gunk on the drum. Following brothers FAQ, I cleaned the part of the drum with a qtip and out came my little line! T...
Cons: From what I hear, a good number of these printers are shipping with little bits of adhesive on the drum. It's annoying, but a little qtip and some time make the printer more than worth it.
Summary: We have had our printer for a little over four months now, and just replaced the first B&W toner cartridge. 3300 pages (B&W) from the cartidge that was shipped with it! The printer replaces two HP ink jet printers - we are a two-teacher family - and we'll never go back!
Summary: We got this as a second/backup ptinter. It works great! Especially like the duplex feature. Saves a lot of paper. Doesn't have quite the vivid colors that our large HP color laser printer does, but for the price, the Brother can't be beat.
