Summary: We bought this printer for twice a year reasonably heavy use. We used it once in June, and once in August. Loved the functionality, but in August, it started malfunctioning. Sadly, I waited too long to try to have it replaced, because we use it so infrequently, but wanted to put the warning out for...
Loud. Old firmware. Planned obsolescence at 100,000 pages. Very very loud.

Summary: To say that this printer is loud is an understatement. I have had several laser printers, but this one is very very loud. You have probably never heard a laser printer this loud. Vacuum cleaners are quieter. The print quality is mediocre by default. It is much like the color of newspaper photos.
Page curl and dark colors make this not such a great printer

Summary: I decided to purchase this Brother Laser printer because it was cheaper than replacing all of my toner cartridges in my old HP color laser printer. I am now regretting purchasing this printer mainly because of the page curl.
The best hands-down Color Laser printer for those sick of the cost of inkjet refills and overpriced HP color laserjet toner

Summary: Brother kicks HP's but all the way up and down the block. Paid $250 through Amazon with free shipping with Amazon Prime (that itself more than paid for the cost of the Prime Membership). I'm an IT professional and Brother laser printers in general are hands-down the best value by a mile.
Summary: This thing is a BEAST! Printed well over 100,000 pages on the first one, and it finally began to tank. I could have cleaned or replaced the fuser kit and ripped it apart for some maintenance, but for what I paid for the entire replacement unit, it unfortunately wasn't worth my time.
Summary: I purchased this printer after having used ink jet printers for years for my home business. I print charts, notes and various types of documents. While I do not print a large quantity of pages each week, what I did print was always a cumbersome task and the quality was sub par.
Summary: The color was dull and non glossy ( I was expecting this from other reviews). The manual input tray was very touchy. After a few days it started printing black spots on every page. I called brother for assistance twice and was put on hold for over 15 minutes each time and hung up.
Summary: Received this printer this afternoon and I have to say that this printer blows me away. For $250, the price of a decent B&W laser, this printer is great. So the flesh tones and photo printing aren't as good as with inkjets but what do you expect for $250?
