First Printer Disappointment

 

Newegg did an EXCEPTIONAL job with setting up a return of these printers AS WELL as the additonal toner cartridges we purchased. We are pleased with their handling of this issue that we see no reason to shop elsewhere for additional printers in the...

Sadly enough, never got the chance

I would not purchase this printer first of all. We purchase roughly 40 - 50 printers a year and are familiar with the process. We purchased two of these models and unboxed both of them as well as the additional paper trays which came included. Followed...

Aewsome

 

This printer is absolutely the BEST I have ever had - and I have had a lot of them. It is fast and the dual trays is exactly what I needed and it works perfectly.

pretty good printer

 

This is a pretty good copier. I've had Brother laser scanners before and this one has them beat. The only problem I had when I took it out of the box was a wide black stripe on the left side of the paper. I had to download the manual and read it to...

NOT compatible -Adobe mixed-page printing with Mac

 

If you need to print mixed page PDFs and have a MAC, Brother CUPS driver is NOT compatible. The software forces you to choose letter or legal but does not have an option for auto. I have a 2011 MacBook Air and updated both my operating system to...

Loving my new printer!

 

Purchased my new printer about 2 weeks ago. I print a large volume of mixed legal and letter size documents for my job and this printer performs beautifully! I needed help getting it set up and called the support line and they walked me through what I...
