Summary: Only one big complaint with this Brother model. This machine forces you to change toner cartridge when the toner is low. If you are like me and make every effort to extend the life of the toner such as by giving the cartridge a good shake then those days will end for you too. If the machine believe's its low in toner then it will not print a single page more until you replace with a brand new toner. There is no way to force it to keep printing either.
Summary: Pros I love the high capacity paper storage the price was right it is fast Cons My biggest gripe is that the toner runs out at the most inopportune times and it will not provide advance warning.
Summary: I purchased this printer because of the advertised speed and the fact that I would have two paper drawers so I could seamlessly print letter and legal sheets. I've only had it over a week, but I love it. The print speed is super fast, faster than what was advertised in my experience. Also, it wakes from sleep mode very quickly and doesn't have much of a lag time between sleep and actual printing.
Summary: I've had several Brother HL-series printers and got this for the office. Clear and fast printing. No jams or paper handling problems even for adhesive shipping labels. Wireless setup via the front panel is barely usable but the USB-based setup works well. Great printer.
Summary: We have 4 teachers using this printer for running off 10-50 copies or printing single docs. Great single page speed and very decent duplex speed. Have used it for 4 months. The high capacity toner cartridges have done well.
