Good value


I was impressed how much a printer within this price range will do. Card stock paper does not work as well as regular printer paper.

Price isn't everything.


For a wireless printer, it's convoluted 'wired connection' requirements are unfortunate. Whew! I still do not have it connected to my printer after four weeks of ownership! Could be user-error. Maybe tomorrow!

Oh Brother. I like you.


While it's a little too early to tell about ink consumption, otherwise the printer does a good overall job.

Best Printer for your money!


I haven't had this printer long but it is quiet, fast, easy to use and maintain. Had a Lexmark 1200 and the ink was twice as much with half the pages, Brother is a much better choice. It is also small and compact the only downside is that it holds less...

I am glad that I selected the Brother


I only have 1 phone line--I had to disconnect the FAX or there was a conflict with the phone answer machine. This machine replaced an early Brother and I did not have the answer phone problem Michael Lipsitz

Two sided printing is more complicated than most printers. Very poor instructions regarding set up for scanning. On line help not helpful but telephone help finally able to resolve the issue.

Worst print I have ever owned!


This is a new unit (only three weeks old). The print quality is very poor. The unit is requiring regular print head cleaning for any quality printing. Brothers customer service was of little help only having me run several deep cleaning tests that...

Better than the others in this category!


As a replacement for an all-in-one HP machine, this was a terrific improvement. Multiple color ink cartridges let you buy only the color you need to replace; construction is sturdy enough if you are not a brute; and you have multiple connection options...
