Great Printer

 

I was originally going to order the 870DW but the 650DW seemed almost identical. So many specs to compare I missed that the 650 did not have a direct Ethernet connection. I was disappointed at first but it functions so well when set up wireless that I...

Much easier set up than old HP that it replaced.

No Ethernet connection to the network.

Bad Customer Service on DOA printer

 

This printer printed a satisfactory test sheet, then presented with a "paper jam" error message during the first print job that would not go away. I purchased this printer in time to meet an important deadline to no avail. Because the printer was DOA,...

???

The printer never worked, warranty replacement not supplied yet, it's been three weeks.

You'll lose sleep

 

Affordable

Do not buy if you sleep in the same room as the printer. The stupid thing wakes me up in the middle of the night to do some sort of ink cartridge maintenance. Noisy. Lights flashing on... I'm tired of literally losing sleep over this… contacted...

Best All-In-One Printer I've Purchased

 

- I highly recommend this product if you are looking for an All-In-One color printer. - I've previously owned an HP OfficeJet Pro and a Dell All-In-One, and they both gave me issues. Particularly with HP, I find that their roller that picks up paper...

- Print and copy are good for an inkjet. - The scanner does its job, though color is a little off. - Haven't had a single paper jam in the past 2 years. - Fairly easy to use and set up. - Relatively small footprint. - Replacement ink is competitively...

- The scanner could be a little better at picking up the right color.

Many Plusses

 

We have two of them--in two separate home offices--and have had none of the problems cited by other reviewers. Highly recommended.

Two great features rarely mentioned: 1) Can print directly on inkjet printable CD and DVD stock. Works very well. I make a lot of private music CD's and this is a great feature. 2) Brother makes several printers that use the same 101/103 ink...

Only one that I can think of--because it does not have a straight paper feed path, you can use 67 lb paper max. If you need/want to use 110 lb cover stock, can't do it with this printer.

Disappointed- Twice

 

I'd wanted a printer with a good scanner so I could import my art easily. After some practice with the adjustable scanner settings I got it down to 3 or 4 scans per drawing to get the desired color on the digital rendition. A USB cable (not included)...

Easy to set up Wireless connectivity Adjustable scanner settings

Wireless doesn't always work; sometimes freezes for long periods After 3 weeks, printer began printing in horizontal "stripes", where it printed some lines of text normally, faded some lines of text in or out, and failed to print other lines of text...

Great value

 

Setup is easy despite what other reviewers are saying. If you have setup any wireless devices and have some common sense, it's a no brainer really. Wireless works just fine. I use the default router from FiOS and it simply works without any hiccups. I...

Easy setup. Wireless. Duplex function. High resolution scans. Well built

It doesn't make coffee!!!

brother printer

 

This printer is exactly what I need, the quality which I expect, easy to set up, use and I'm lovin'it. For the price and purpose I have an exceptional unit.

Delivery --the outside of the carton was damaged-but it still works.

Best printer I've ever owned

 

If you want to spend little for something that will save you money on ink, this was it for me. I have not experimented with many inks and I want to note that using other inks is at your own risk. Using off brand inks voids your warranty. Personally I...

All in one economical printer. I bought it I believe refurbished however to this day it still works! It self cleans as long as you leave it on (sleeping) and you don't have to worry about the heads getting clogged. Best part, and I can't stress this...
