Summary: Bought this printer for my office. Easy set up and just what I need for black and white printing. Only downside to Brother is that you can't use generic cartridges, DON'T EVEN TRY. This is about the 5th Brother printer I've purchased for home or office.
Summary: Have only had this printer up and running for a week. It's being used in a small Real Estate office and we do a fair amount of printing every day. But our printing needs are basic. Word Documents, Web Pages etc...I love the duplex feature and the double tray option this printer came with saves time from having to switch back and fourth between regular and other types of paper.
Pros: duplex printing value for product dual paper trays
Cons: wireless network set up might be a challenge
Great Value - Solid Printer with Occasional Issues
3 November 2013
Summary: I am very happy with this printer. The only issue we seem to be having is the printer sometimes does not wakeup when we print to it and it requires pressing the "go" button or a power cycle for it to pickup or printing from the queue. We are using this as a workgroup printer for Macs, Windows, and Linux computers. All have worked fine some with a bit of configuration. The duplex printing has worked without issue.
Summary: I retired my 12+ year old HP LJ1200 in favor of this unit. It is fast, and produces excellent output. Duplexing works well, and my only complaint is the gear mechanism which is used to determine when toner is low. This is a well known issue with Brother, but the cartridge design has been altered, making it more difficult to reset. Delivered promptly, and with no signs of damage on the outer box.
Summary: Bought this printer to replace a HP P4014. It is important to remember that you get what you pay for. My HP only jammed 2 or 3 times in the 3 years I had it (I run about 5000 pages a week) and was easy to clear if there was a jam. My brother printer has jammed several times already. Additionally, once the jam is cleared the printer automatically shuts down for 15 minutes.
Summary: This printer is one of the smartest choice. I print approximately 3,000 pages a day. It prints very quickly, easy set up. Wireless connection works great. I would recommend this product For high printing needs and are looking to save money!
Huge productivity boost and much lower operating costs.

Summary: This printer was a game changer as our production time for large mixed sized documents dropped by 80%. Our old system would balk at printing letter and legal and we had to print them separately and then manually assemble the document package. This system totally automated that process. The larger dual paper trays, faster network and print speeds dropped a 2 hour project to 10 minutes. Wow!
