Summary: This is an amazing machine. I got it on such a great deal because it was an opened box item but it was completely new. The print quality is excellent. I can never got back to inkjet prints. It puts out paper so fast that it's hard to keep up taking them put and laying them flat to give it less of a page curl. Tone is much more expensive but I was able to print over a thousand double sided sheets before needing to replace the black.
Maintenance costs are more than the printer itself

Summary: We were generally happy with this printer initially, however after 50,000 prints the fuser needs to be replaced according to an error message on the printer that constantly interrupts print jobs. It is an automatic message that occurs at 50K prints, nothing wrong with the print outs per se.
Summary: I didn't know which printer to buy. Every single printer had way too many negative reviews. I finally went to a store that had the next model up where the only difference was duplex scanning and printing and I scanned a color photo to see just how bad the quality was. Well I don't see how you could expect better quality out of laser than what it put out. I'm so happy I did that and bought this model.
Summary: I own 3 of these now for the office, these are great for a small business who need a color printer in every department. scanning to network features work and its pretty simple to set up and use.
Outstanding Color Printer, Scanner, Copier and Fax

Summary: Have owned this unit for a year now and have absolutely no complaints. I bought the Brother after reading dissatisfactory reviews of other manufacturer's products. I have not been sorry I invested in the Brother product. One thing to keep in mind . . . in order for the unit to remain in factory warranty you must use Brother Toner Cartridges, so check those prices before deciding to buy.
Summary: I got this for my home and small business. I was attracted to the less expensive printing cost over ink jet. I am using this with a Mac, and I had to contact customer support to figure out what additional drivers I needed to get the scan feature to work with my Mac. I am able to scan from the printer, but have not yet figured out or tried the feature that allows me to scan from the computer. The printer has decent print quality in both the color and B&W mode.
Summary: Best printer I have ever owned! Installed it several months ago and have had zero problems. It performs perfectly at everything I throw at it. If you are tired of always having to change your ink cartridges because they dry out or always run out when you need them then I would suggest this printer. Couldn't all fit anything better. Even the setup was a breeze sand the WiFi option is perfect so you don't have to give up desk space for it.
