Summary: Good print speed and decent quality. Printer feels cheap and makes audible clicks and crunches that I don't believe are signs of impending doom. Two big issues for me. 1. Absolutely destroys and crinkles envelopes. Straight paper path doesn't help. 2. Cannot print duplex from the PC side under virtual Parallels machine. Mac side works fine. Tech support has not been very helpful.
Summary: I can't understand why any manufacture would not include a network (RJ45) connector on their printers. Home networks are so common now. This is the only gripe I have with this product. Otherwise every thing else is great. Love the high yeild toner cartriges (8,000 pages).
FAST, great price, but fumes from printer irritate lungs

Summary: I am using this at work in a 12x18 foot office, and when printing 50 to 100 pages, there is a strong toner smell in the air that stings our lungs. We are using the toner cartridge that came with the printer, and printing on generic copier paper that you would find at Staples or Office Depot. The problem did not clear up after a week of use, so we had to move this Brother printer to another unoccupied office to clear the air.
Summary: Pros: Fast and easy installation; very speedy printing; print quality very good for text; high capacity toner cartridges available (compatible cartridges are reasonably priced). Cons: Although Brother added a "straight through paper path" apparently for the purpose of dealing with criticisms of a previous model that envelopes and thicker media were crinkled or somewhat rolled, the straight through paper path does not solve the envelope problem.
Excerpt: What impressed me when i first used this machine was the duplex printing feature, The fact it was so simple to print on the front and back of a page with a couple of clicks, and also a really easy feature for the printing of booklets, with just a couple of clicks. Duplex printing is also very fast and the margins of the page are not increased by using duplex.
Pros: Fast print speed, easy installation, easy use
Summary: Un mois aprés la livraison de cet imprimante , je suis satisfait de mon achat ,cela correspond tout a fait à ce que j'attendais, bon fonctionnement ,économique . la mise en service c'est trés bien passer , malgré le fait que la notice soit rédiger en Allemand . 3 étoiles me semble pour l'instant tout a fait justifier .
Summary: Le produit est un peu en dessous de ce que j'attendais, en raison d'une imprécision du fabriquant. En fait, la machine execute bien le recto-verso automatique, mais en A4 seulement!!! Moi qui travaille en A5... Tant pis, je le fais en manuel, mais... Et puis, dans ce format, lors du second passage, le papier froisse souvent, souvent... Dommage. Pour le travail délicat, je continuerai avec ma Canon jet d'encre.
