Summary: I have always bought Brother oolor laser printers so I am not complaining without knowing what I am talking about. The brother website [...] states that the toner that comes with it has a yield of (1) TN310BK Standard Yield Black Toner Cartridge (2,500 pages). In less than a month of use, I am at 526 pages and the Black toner is already low. Are you kidding me ! At 25% toner is low?
Shame on wasteful Brother - Expensive to replace toner

Summary: This printer prints great until the toner runs out. This did take 6 months, which was pretty good. But don't think you are going to find a low cost solution to keep this printer going. Genuine Brother toner costs about $350 for the 4 colors. I tried lower cost toner and they have proven to be an utter disaster. Unusable. The low cost yellow toner would not work. Bought a replacement, it also would not work. Broke down and bought a Genuine Brother yellow toner.
Summary: This printer was sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals, usually very good. However the checking sheet that was completed by staff on previous receipt back clearly stated that the drums and toners were missing. Sadly they didn't bother to state this on the new description.... So sent me a printer without these! To add insult to injury, when I complained, offered me a £34 credit with which to buy missing items, only at at Amazon.....
Summary: The printed pages it produces are so curled they might as well be scrolls. It is so bad, Brother have an check-box on the 'Advanced' tab of the windows driver which says 'reduce paper curl' - what, who wants ANY paper curl ?? Its an absolute nonsense, and outrageously heavy into the bargain. Mine has been sent back for a refund.
Summary: Came on time, we installed it, put it on our network and everyone could use it.Easy! Does what it says on the tin What a disappointment after less than one month the printer developed a fault neither the vendor or Brother could resolve the problem. All they did was trot out standard answers and once those did not work backed away (yes this does include Brother) the printer was returned to the vendor and weeks later I am still waiting for a printer that works.
Summary: It arrived on time and packed very well, end of the good news. It did not work out of the box which I expect these days. It printed wildly red and since the manual was not enclosed and had to be found and printed was almost impossible to read to try to correct. Emailed my problems and they took a week to reply! Totally unacceptable when I deeded urgently to print several important things. Went to a local shop who offered a cheaper better alternative with guarantee.
Excerpt: This is by far the worst printer I have ever used, it is unbelievably rubbish, it takes hours to warm up, ages to print, massive delays between printing pages. Print more than ten pages and the ink smells the office out so badly it gives you an acrid taste to the mouth and sore eyes and I am convinced is probably going to give me cancer. The person who purchased this for my office is on very thin ice as a result. Unfortunately I am not in any way exagerating.
Pros: It looks nice
Cons: Like sitting next to a boeing before take off and it stinks the office out
Summary: Oben in der Amazon anzeige steht noch 192mb. Später dann 128MB, und dass ist dann auch im Gerät drinnen. Dann die ersten Bilder ausgedruckt. Ich glaube, mich tritt ein Pferd. Schlechter als der Rasterdruck einer Zeitung . Wenn es nur das grobe Raster wäre, damit könnte man ja noch leben. Aber im 2400dbp Modus kommen dann noch helle Linien dazu. Im 600x600 Modus gibt es ca 1 cm breite vertikalstreifen. D. h.
Summary: Nach 4 Wochen hin und her ist gestern der letzte Drucker diesen Typs bei uns abgeholt worden. Kurz gesagt, keine einziges Bild ließ sich mit den gelieferten Geräten ( Erstlieferung und Austauschgerät ) streifenfrei ausdrucken. Ausser Spesen und viel Schlepperei nix gewesen.
