Brother MFC-9120CN

 

The Brother MFC-9120CN ($400 street) a color LED multifunction printer (MFP) geared to home offices and small workgroups, provides good speed and paper capacity for its price. We wish its graphics and photo quality were better, but the MFC-9120CN...

Good speed. Solid text printing. Prints, scans, and faxes over network. Sub-par graphics and photos. No thumb-drive or media-card slots. Manual duplexing only

Sub-par graphics and photos. No thumb-drive or media-card slots. Manual duplexing only

The Brother MFC-9120CN provides good print speed and solid text quality to micro offices looking for a color laser MFP.

Lab Test: Brother MFC-9120CN

 

Installation over Ethernet and USB was straightforward using the printer setup utility. The printer was recognised instantly and an up-to-date driver was installed in quick time. There are four toner cartridges to install as the MFC-9120CN is a CYMK...

Very fast

No wireless; noisy

Given the size of the MFC-9120CN, it’s not really suited to being placed on the desk next to a workstation. Also, we found that even when inactive, the MFC-9120CN emitted a low hum, adding to the ambient office noise. We’d suggest that users keep this...

Replacement printer for an HP Color LJ

 

My HP LJ went belly up, and I could not find my receipt for the service contract I had purchased, so I bite the bullet and plunked down another chunk of change for the printer. So far it is great; I really like the idea of not hearing it run calibrate...

I like it as it is not running calibrate everyday, as my old one did. It has a sharp, high quality output

Lower number of pages per cartridge (2400 for black, 2200 for the color)

Best All in one I have ever owned

 

There is a lot of misleading reviews out there on all in ones. But this machine is a great deal and works great.

Great print quality, great scanner and fax includes PC Fax software ; No problems, all functions work great

Very large and heavy

No more ink!

 

I have grown to really hate ink jet printers. Great if you use them often but sitting idle the print heads dry out and clog. Ink is not cheap either. I have had zero problems with laser printers but longed for a color one for a decent price. This thing...

I have been on the fence to buy a network color laser printer for home use for a while. I have a B&W Brother laser networked,an HP color ink jet that is always empty or clogged and an old fax machine. My goal was to get a one machine solution to do...

Nothing comes to mind unless you have to replace all the toner cartridges at once. At around $50 a pop it would leave a mark on your wallet. The box it comes in is frigging HUGE. I think they could air drop it to your house and it would land OK. The...

Excellent Printer

 

As someone else mentioned, you should keep one set of each cartridge available so that when one color runs out, you can immediately replace it, then you have time to purchase a replacement for just that one cartridge (you don't have to keep buying a...

I have generally standardized on HP printers both at home (inkjets for the lower up front cost) and at work (for the reliability). When I needed a new printer at home, I didn't want to continue down the path of ink cartridges, so I researched a lot of...

No major cons. I would like to have been able to get a printer with true duplex printing, but I don't have enough need to pay more for that feature. This printer has a "Duplex" option when printing that prints one side, then prompts you to flip the...

Home office. Great all around machine. Does it all! Also own a Brother HL-5250DN for couple years now. Love Brother products

Haven't really found any

Consumer review by:

Very quiet printing

 

I had an HP2480 in the office for four years. It was slow to startup, noisy, large, and forced toner replacement when it had no degradation of prints. The Brother is a much nicer sized footprint. It starts up quickly and quietly with very nice print...

Compact Design","Easy Setup","Fast Print Time

Great low end printer

 

My wife keeps opening the access to the toner instead of lifting the scanner adf. It's kinda hard to get upset with Brother for that though.

Very user friendly. Does NOT have a lot of bloatware in the drivers. Even my luddite wife can figure out the controls. I have had no jams or operational problems. Toner costs are low/moderate for a color laser. Excellent value

Does not have duplex
