Summary: I find Brother printers less expensive to purchase and operate than the 'other' laser printer company. I have put several Brothers in place in our office as the 'other' brand printers have aged and died.
Pros: -Compact, same size as most desktop lasers with the open paper tray. -Quiet, the enclosed design makes things much nicer for an office setting. -Inexpensive to operate, 1.4c per page vs 2+c per page for 'other' brand desktop lasers. -Compatible toner/drum with multiple Brother products, reduces T...
Cons: -SLOW. SLOW. Did I mention it is slow? When it is cold the first page of a document: 20 (twenty) seconds, including warm-up time. After it is warmed up it is only 10 (ten) seconds to spit out the first page of a document. Subsequent pages in the same print job seem fine, but multiple-page prints ...
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...
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.
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.
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).
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.
Pros: Fast print speed, easy installation, easy use
would have liked to be informed that i would need a toner cartridge to use this refurbished printer.

Summary: would have liked to be informed that i would need a toner cartridge to use this refurbished printer. it comes in a box that fits where it touches, so not original, not that I was expecting that, what i was expecting is to use it when i plugged it in!
