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: 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: 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: 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.
Excerpt: I have only had it for less than a week but so far so good. The print quality is good for what I use it for. It prints envelopes better than the older Brother model I had. The machine is a bit on the loud side. The duplex feature works well.
Excerpt: This printer replaced our old DELL 2150CN which had constant issues. The Brother was simple to set-up on our Network and very easy to use. The warm up feature lags a little when you start printing for the 1st time of the day, but once it's warmed up and ready to go it's pretty fast and efficient. Sharp quality printouts.
Pros: Durable Construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable, Sharp tones & colors
Excerpt: Needed a replacement color printer, after reading the reviews, I decided to give this one a try. Ordered it on Friday night and it arrived Monday. Took less than 10 minutes to unpack, setup, and install. I needed a static IP address so I had to install the software. Compared to the interface on other printers, Brother can do some upgrades there. My only real complaint about this machine is that it seems to have been made cheaply.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Sharp tones & colors
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. Hope this saves you some time :) By the way, the printer is nice and fast but not very sharp for pictures even on the "fine" setting. 1.
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. The OKI did great glossy prints, and even though these prints aren't glossy it is still good enough for our most important presentations.
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. For my purposes, it will work as a color printer and the duplex feature is very nice as it save paper and doesn't create a problem of trying to manually try it.
