Good but not perfect.

 

This is something I knew going into this purchase but the scanner does not duplex scan. If you need both sides then you have to flip the document over and scan the back side as well. Really consider if you might want duplex scan. You might actually...

Cheap for an all-in-one laser printer. Brother makes quality products and you won't get taken for a ride when replacing the toner cartridge. I had another Brother laser printer and the cartridge it came with gave me years of service. ADF is super handy...

There are a few issues with this model that are annoying. It's a network printer, but for the all-in-one aspect to be used, you have to install the full software package. So that means when you scan stuff in, it targets whichever PC is the master. I'd...

One of the best Laser

 

-2 sided printing -Automatic photocopy(scan and photocopy a stack of documents)+Manual -Completely wireless (no need for a router for this to work) although it can be connected through router using Ethernet. -Manual feed so you can print very long...

-The only bad thing is that it doesn't print images that great, but I cannot take an egg off since all laser printers have this problem. Laser does not know grey from black, they just make smaller dots -Requires clearance on the side or it will...

Why you get a black line when you scan

 

The black line is nearly always caused by dirt on the glass. A deep scratch can make lines too. When the feeder is being used in a scan operation, the scanning head is parked. Most commonly the parked position is nearest the end of the glass closest to...

don't own this printer but want to help person with black line on scans

I'm responding to a con, namely a black line when scanning.

Easy Setup

 

This printer replaced my old Brother HL-2270DW laser printer, which I liked a lot and was still working well. I just wanted to have scanning and copying capability. This unit cost just a bit more than I paid for the old printer two years ago. I did the...

I have been keeping the power on, so it is normally in sleep mode. It has been reliably coming out of sleep with no detectable delay when needed. Print is clear. Double-sided printing works well. Color scanning is great as well. No bloatware like you...

Printer Failed

 

I purchased another Brother printer, (similar model) and the document scanner on top makes a high pitch noise and will not pull in papers. I called Brother and they did not help, he had me do the same steps over and over, and it finally worked but I...

Cheap price, Brother reliability?

These new Brother printers have a power cord that is built in, I liked the other ones with a removable PC cord. The real con is the cheap quality now, my document scanner will not scan properly, it pulls the paper in crocked each and every time...

DOA out of box - NO RETURN???

 

I purchase a lot from NewEgg, but getting DOA without returns is unacceptable.

None, didn't work and can't return!

DOA out of box. Isn't recognized with cable, and computer won't boot if connected.
