Pleased since 2006

  • Summary: [2014-09:] Just an update that I am still using this printer. I don't print a whole lot of stuff, but this printer is holding up well. I use it with Windows 7 now over WiFi. [2010-09:] I have owned this printer since March 2006 and use it in a home/home office setting.

Does what it's supposed to but beware of WPA setup!

  • Summary: Nothing special to write here. It's tricky to set up. I couldn't get the wireless set up over WPA TKIP no matter how hard I tried (hours). I finally switched to WPA AES and it worked fine. I couldn't find any documentation about this on the Brother website or elsewhere. Pity.

Buy no more Brother, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer from another supplier and used it for about two years. It gave me a lot of trouble every time I moved it. After moving, it is always malfunction with red light saying "JAM INSIDE" which actually no jam at all.

Long time user

  • Summary: Long time user of Brother printers. Have had about 15 printers thru the years, from HL-1240 up to the HL-5280 DW. Have six Brother printers in current use, three are MFC- in office use. All are Double side printers. Thru all these years only two problems and these were not the printers fault. #1.

Great Printer, but the fan noise drives me crazy

  • Summary: Great Printer for the price. But the cooling fan is unnecessarily loud. I will probably return it just for this reason, which is a shame, because otherwise I like it.

Not worth your time. Especially if you are a Mac user!

  • Summary: The printer does not work as advertised. Half a day reading manuals. Most of it on the phone with Brother Support. The WiFi part of this printer is a double edge sword. After finally getting it to show up on the network, turns out that if you try to print large files, the wifi gets taxed and will...

Excellent printer

David A. Hirmes, Amazon
1 April 2009
  • Summary: I was looking for a printer that provided: Very high resolution, dual-side printing, and wireless. Kind of a strange set of requirements, but if that's what you're looking for, this printer is for you. I've had it several months now and it has performed well.

Easy install, fast and reliable operation

David, Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: I'm using this wirelessly with both a Mac and PC and all the drivers installed flawlessly on both systems. The printer is fast, and output looks good. Haven't seen a jam yet, though envelopes can crinkle a bit if not lined up perfectly in the single-use tray. I love the duplex feature.
