Love this printer

Bookworm2, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I know it's time to get another printer, a newer one, but this is a workhorse that I like so much that when my first one died, and I couldn't find this same model, new, I bought a used one. Glad I did. It's fast, does the job of making nice copies and is very dependable.

This has been an absolute workhorse for our organization

Scott D. Walters, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: We used up the toner that came with it, replaced that, and then mowed through most of that to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pages. Our non-profit prints sign up sheets, count sheets for field volunteers, petitions, fliers, and other things on this. It's been a workhorse.

  • Summary: I am using this printer on my home LAN with both macs and a PC and it prints flawlessly and quickly. Print quality seems quite good and the duplexing feature is very convenient. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in a monochrome laser for home.

Great value, great performance

underwhelm, Amazon

  • Summary: It's tough to find an inexpensive networked laser printer. Usually you can pick two of the three, or adding networking support or duplexing requires the purchase of an exotic add-on. This printer is a rare exception, and I don't regret my purchase at all.

Good Workhorse; Pricey Cartridges

JTK Out West, Amazon
23 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought this printer about two years ago and it has never failed me. My occupation is document intensive, so I need a dependable, high quality printer that won't jam or suffer from "work fatigue.

  • Summary: This printer jams all the time. Tech support advised using 24 lb paper, and this worked! So: Tech support knows about the jam. They know the problem can be fixed with heaver paper...but why won't they provide a fix that works with 20lb paper?

Brother Customer service SUCKS

J. Goding, Amazon
18 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought this printer in 2004. It failed two days after the warrantee expired, with far less than the traffic it was rated for. I had put less than 5000 sheets through it. I paid to replace the laser cartridge but the problem repaeated itself immediately. I took it back to the shop.

a great buy

D. WOJTOWICZ, Amazon
6 April 2007
  • Summary: This printer is a great value. This purchase was our 6th one and we will buy more. It's cheap, it's compact and it just works... and you'd have to pay more to get built-in duplexing, networking and postscript support from another model.
