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.
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. Yikes!
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. That printer (MFC 8510DN) is a work horse and continues to work well without any problems. 2. Approximately $50 more than other brand laser printers, but includes Duplex printing (saves on paper). 3.
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. When I needed colors on a print, they were sharp and accurate with exceptional resolution -- none of the bleed I commonly experienced with ink jets on basic copy paper. The duplex is a great feature.
Summary: I bought this printer 1 week ago. As per one of the other reviewers, this unit has some heft to it. It comes with full cartridges, not starter cartridges. The color and sharpness are excellent. I've been using a monochrome HP 1020 laserjet for the last few years. there's a definite improvement in the sharpness of the text. When the machine comes out of its sleep mode, it is louder than I anticipated, and was even a bit shocked at first.
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. To clarify these statements, I would say that the color is not great for professional photographers or those who require precise color printing.
Summary: First printer had serious print quality problems with streaks of toner caked up on paper when printing in color. B&W prints following would have remnants of toner as well. On a brand new printer you should not have to immediately start troubleshooting, but I went through the process of cleaning the rollers just to see if it would correct the problem. After seeing the same behavior the next troubleshooting step was to replace the toner.
