Excerpt: This is my second machine. The first one lasted 3 years with little trouble. Basically I wore it out and to replace the individual parts would have cost more than to purchase a new machine. Changing toner cartridges and drum units is a simple process. I also added a second tray so it would print both letter and legal paper. Not the fastest machine but fast enough for my needs. I hope this one serves me as well as the first.
Summary: Use: We are currently using 3 of these in a distributed, corporate network environment Pros: - Economical Toner (we buy the TN-780, and while I haven't aggressively reviewed yields, I can tell you that they run for a LONG time). - Screen - while scrolling through letters to enter a Wi-Fi password is a little bit of a drag, it is 30 seconds of pain and it's done. I am getting away from the conventional, wired network and these have worked out fantastically.
Summary: Please let me address the power issues being brought up here. I do NOT have a GFI outlet for this. In addition, I have a power strip plugged into that outlet, which powers BOTH this laser printer and a Dell desktop PC. With both gadgets plugged in to the same place (15 amp circuit) and both gadgets ON - I can print just fine. Yes that's right. The printer works flawlessly and the Windows-7 PC desktop works without a hitch.
Excerpt: Setup took a bit longer than expected, but overall works great with wireless and wired setup. Purchased the high yield toner at $88, last approx. 1 year for for extended usage and at an administrative level. Prints out of the border range which is excellent for border-less prints. Supports stock paper and quality is excellent. Double side printing's alignment is as close as you can get. Size of printer is average but is smaller that the bulky all-in-one printers.
Summary: I was concerned about the reported high-current draw of these printers, but took a chance. Both are connected to circuits that have computers and other printers, and have been in operation for about 2 weeks, networked with multiple users printing to each. Neither printer has given any hint of excessive power draw.... no tripped breakers or even dimming of lights. They promise to have lower operating costs than my other Brother printers (all lasers).
Summary: Setup was a breeze. Print quality is great. Wireless printing is a very nice option. Paired well with our iPads. Duplex printing is a nice plus. No issues with power faults. Print speed is impressive. Nothing bad to say.
