Excerpt: I had ordered this printer to be delivered to the store from the online site. I had a coupon and it was also on sale. I wanted to stop worrying about my kids using up the inkjet all of the time. So I placed the order and it was delivered as stated on the receipt. There was no problem with the pick up at the store, and I went home very happy. When I unpacked it, I realized that this unit did not make copies or scans.
Excerpt: This was shipped fast from Staples - got it two days sooner than promised! It was very easy to set up, and in no time we had it operating, to print from both my and my husband's computer. The prints are clean and sharp; the duplexing works easily. The software that came with it even lets me make greeting cards again, an ability I lost when I went to Windows 8 and my old beloved program became obsolete.
Excerpt: This is so simplistic if I could buy one for everybody in my family, I would. At first I thought it was going to be complicated so I hesitated, I got home and hooked it up to my computer. been using it ever since , so easy to use and the results are just awesome so much more I can say but the word awesome sums it up in a nutshell! The price is great, it looks good in my work area simple to maintain simple to change the ink I think the words simplistic fits it perfectly.
Excerpt: Honestly, I never took the time to see this printer in person at the store and I regret it. I took the box home but was surprised when I opened it. IT IS HUGE, TOO BIG FOR A HOME OFFICE!! You cannot put this printer on a desk with your PC. It needs its own space. It fit perfectly on a small filing cabinet so be aware that you need space and you are going to lose surface space with this printer. However, that being said, it prints amazing and delivers quality images.
Excerpt: For the money this printer is awsome. Every other printer in this class is usually $150.00 plus more dollars. Brother printers used to have a bad name about 10 years ago. They really have stepped it up a notch. You owe it to yourself to take another look at them.
Excerpt: I got two of these printers for a very good price (less than the cost of the toners by my calculation) and have been pleased with the results. The reason I don't rate this higher is due to the fact that the paper curls slightly after printing regardless of the paper thickness. As well, the two printers' colors don't quite match up if I print the same content on either printer. Not a big deal for most people but slightly annoying for me.
Excerpt: I am very happy with this printer. It has bright colors, prints quickly even the first page, and it is silent when not in use. The unit feels solid and well built. I am pretty sure the toner cartridges it came with are standard size full cartridges. Delivery from Staples was very fast. But my favorite feature is that it supports many different ways to connect to it. All of my computers in my house from Linux, Windows, new and very old all can print to it.
Summary: I will describe this printer in 3 worlds: Junk Garbage Trash. Read this very carefully, do not buy this printer, if you receive it as a gift, return it. If you receive the printer + paper as a gift, save your time and return it. If you ignore my advice like I did with the other reviews, you will have a very bad day once you turn it on.
Excerpt: This is a little smaller than the other Brother printers we have but it's a good quality printer for a small office/one user. Set up wasn't difficult, the speed is decent & it isn't horribly loud. Brother toner is pricey but the high yield toners last for a while.
