Summary: I use it with "business gloss" paper and get nice quality advertising handouts. I found it a good idea to get the memory expansion. Before I did that, I would occasionally get "out of memory" errors. I use it mostly on the Mac.
Pros: Reliable, inexpensive to operate, good image quality for the price, equally at home on Mac and Windows on the network in a mixed environment. Silent when not printing. I've done nearly 18,000 pages in three years, and have yet to replace anything except toner. The status page tells you how far aw...
Cons: Color images are good, but you can get better image quality from more expensive laser printers. Supplies are expensive, but you don't need to get them often, so still cheap in the long run. The printer obstinately refuses to print when it thinks a cartridge is empty, even when actually still half...
Summary: I've always been an HP laser printer guy. I've always pushed HP, but now, I'm tired of the BLOATED drivers hp makes. Brother & Epson are my new favorites. They are both ROCK Solid and don't give you all the garbage software that HP gives you.
Pros: Let's make things clear, The printer is ROCK SOLID! First off, we primarily use this printer to print out pick sheets, sales orders, and invoices with five Quickbooks equiped desktops & laptops. Our office purchased the HL-4150CDN about 2 years ago. To date it has performed as follows: Printed a ...
Cons: As far as cons are concerned, there are only three. 1) The first con is that the actual price of the toner SEEMS high because you often time have to purchase 4 toners at once. But in reality, if you break down the cost per page, it's actually cheaper than any inkjet i've ever met. So the con here...
Summary: Ok, so I just got my printer set up and was so excited to use the duplex printing to save on paper by printing on both sides automatically. Well, on my Mac laptop there wasn't a clear option to do that when I printed from Word 2010. I searched around and found the solution.
Summary: We are replacing a machine that was just getting more expense to keep replacing the parts instead of getting a new one. We had a OKI before, and while this machine isn't up to the same quality that the OKI produced, it is still a great quality.
Summary: I've had this unit for about 3 weeks now, and I like this printer as it was easy to set up and it worked right out of the box. The only issue I would have liked was better color matching as it is color but has no glossyness to it and some colors show to be dull or not exactly correct.
Summary: Love working with these as they can work with different subnets. I.E. I install the printer on our main network and make a firewall rule to allow another subnet to see the printer's IP and bam! I will say that if you use the cheap-o paper that's super thin (paper-thin?), it will curl your printouts.
Good Printer for the Price (Small Business Use Mainly)

Summary: We print a good amount of color information for our clients. The main reason I went forward with this printer vs the others that are available: 1. The Brother Name - good quality printers. We also use a B/W All-in-one Laser printer that does a majority of our printing.
Summary: I don't print things very often so using an inkjet printer is always an exercise of multiple rounds of cleaning the heads and using up the ink in them to get one or two pages out, very wasteful for me.
Pros: Installed easily on my home network that has XP, W7, and Apple computers on it. Has been pretty easy to use with the above computers with whatever I've thrown at it. No ink jet cartridges to forever mess around with. Came with regular (not trial) toner cartridges (rated 1500 pages for the color a...
Cons: It's big and heavy Power switch is poorly located Curls the paper quite a bit
Summary: After incurring the expense of color inks in ink jets that routinely dry out even when seldom used, I decided to switch to this inexpensive color laser. I found the prints to be exceptional crisp and accurate.
Fast printer. Duplex very handy. Loud but quickly quiets down.

Summary: This printer is fast. It prints 25 pages per minute and it has duplex printing. This is especially useful, since the printer will automatically print on both sides of the paper should you want it to, saving a lot of paper. Others have said that the color reproduction is not great.
