Great all in one machine


Great all in one machine for the price. After we figured out the script problem everything is working great.

Fast, high quality laser printing. Everything is configurable with the built in web interface. Printer was easily connected to the network and shared out from the server

Had some trouble printing PostScript to the printer. Brother has a compatable version of PostScript called BR-Script. Finally got it working after removing a command that the BR-Script didnt understand
