Summary: I received the delivery one day early and the packaging was intact and handled well. The printer is a bit heavy; however, physical set to include the second base tray went very well. The CD that came with the printer and the drivers were outdated; so I would suggest just do the download from Brother.com to begin with and save some set up time. The printer is functioning well so far and it is very quiet.
Summary: Brother has come a long way in the dependability and User Interfaces for their products. I used to recommend other brands, but in our office environment at work we have noticed the Brother laser printers have lasted the longest with minimal service required. One key issue: The onboard "Out of Toner" messages are premature. I have experimented using the reported bypass techniques that you can find on the Web to extend the time between toner changes for weeks on end.
Excerpt: This is the second of this same model we have purchased for our office, not as a replacement but as an addition, because we have been so pleased with the first. We use both printers constantly and they have proven to be very dependable. The quality of the documents produced and the speed of printing is great. We have a third Brother printer in the office ( different model) that has also been dependable and reliable.
Pros: Durable Construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable, Sharp tones & colors
Summary: Very disappointed in this product. Purchased it 4 months ago based on Amazon reviews. Already getting 'replace drum messages'. Printer ink runs out much quicker than other products we used. When in Pause mode, you have to go to the printer and press go button if you printed something.
Summary: This printer is fast and stable, providing a high quality product for not a lot of money. If you are looking to upgrade your small-to-medium-sized or home office to a color laser, we recommend this for sure. The extra paper tray is really nice, allowing us to quit worrying about changing out the paper size or leaving the wrong size in there.
