  • Summary: When I purchased this printer I was thrilled! The prints were beautiful. I am sorry to report that it was VERY short lived. I have spent way too much time on trying new toners and new drums to fix the problem and still my prints ALWAYS seem to have marks that are not suppose to be on them.

Printer :(

  • Summary: Started out fast but for some reason after printing a few times it started to hesitate and really slowed down. Not very happy with it overall. This will most likely be the last Brother printer I purchase.

Keep blowing fuse or browning out the line

Groovy, Amazon
9 February 2013
  • Summary: The printer functions overall is great. The setup of the networking option was also easy to follow. Now the one thing i did not like is the fact that every time it came out of idle mode to print it would either blow the fuse or brown out the line.

trips the AFCI breaker, cannot use

Tek Know Wiz, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: Just like some of the other reviewers, my printer triggers the AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker in my home. The AFCI is designed to detect low-current sparks or shorts which can cause fires. I don't know what the printer is doing to trigger this, but it is 100% reproducible.
