Consumer review (newegg.com)

only good for 8X11 paper

 

If I did not need to print checks, envelopes or 8x14 sheets, this would have been a good printer.

This was a very good price for a laser printer, scanner and copier

have to load checks in reverse order. to print anything other than 8x11 required access to rear of printer and could only print one item at a time, hand feeding each item

Great support

 

The printer had scanner part not working. Called Brother and got it replaced for free under warranty after 10 min over the phone troubleshooting. They shipped new unit in 2 days, provided return label, replacement works fine. I highly recommend Brother...

Cheap, good customer support

Was broken but replaced by Brother

Nice printer

 

Installation very straightforward. Hooked up as a network printer to share between PC's, smooth and effortless ; Printed several test pages and documents, quick to print and quality is nice

None so far :)

Glad that I purchased this!

 

Great deal for $89 including shipping! Thanks Newegg!

Easy set up. Easy to use. Great design. Prints fast and crisp. This will be our default economical printer for everyday family use. Epson inkjet printer will be used for color photos and when color documents are needed

A little loud when printing but I can deal with the fast prints

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great...if you direct plug in

 

Great printing speed, double sided....awesome in general but

is picky when it wants to print wirelessly, and forces you to scan only certain file types wirelessly. Bought this for me and girlfriend to use for college work. At first I had to mess with sleep mode then it seemed to work flawlessly. Lately it has...

Broken from the box

 

Unpacked, turned on and got "Scan unable - AF". Scanning part is broken, need to ship back to Brother for replacement. Do they even test it before it leaves factory? First ever printer or scanner broken out of the box and it is Brother

Good for what i need, but could have used better

 

I wont replace it until it completely craps out, but i was forced to buy a separate scanner which i did not want to do due to space issues.

First off, i'm not going to go through pros, you probably already know them. Second, my setup is a combination of computers from windows 8, 10 and linux. Setup couldn't be completed from linux, although you can print from linux. I'm running the printer...

Now the cons. I'm not even through my first full size toner cartridge yet and the drum is already going bad, i'm surprised my shipping labels still scan. Grey scale graphics suck. The big kicker was when i found out that the scanner is pretty much only...

Nice and Easy

 

Works very well if you don't need color, and is very easy to use. I've had it for less than a month, but it is far and away superior to my previous inkjet printer. Buy it if it fits your needs and enjoy.

Simple to install drivers and easy to use utilities ; Good quality printing ; Good scanning and copying ; Scans in color... though it doesn't print in color ; Long lasting ink cartridges ; Fast prints

It isn't a color print, but that's not a big issue for me ; High power usage? ...like most laser printers, so not really a problem
