"Not disapointed after much soul searching"4.0 starson by jgraywil
Pros: Speed of printing; ease of setup, quality of print
Cons: True, it is loud
Summary: Doing serious soul searching as I read through the countless reviews I finally took the plunge and purchased this printer. And like almost everything, there are good points and couple of things that could be better.
It is "somewhat" loud but, considering the price (I caught this printer on sale and got it considerably below street price) this to me, at least is not a serious problem. Noise is relative anyway, what to me is quite acceptable probably drives others to the point of madness.
Might as well be honest, yes, as some have reported, the paper does curl, but — here again to me it doesn't curl much and it bothers me none at all. Curling tolerance is also relative I suppose.
I wasn't greatly pleased over the fact the printer doesn't come with a USB 2 cable (something that I think I've never encountered before) but things have to be kept in perspective, the price on this piece of hardware is quite unbelievable anyway, so this is no big shake.
I'm impressed. I'm glad I bought this printer and if it holds up well, I'll look to Brother in the future, having shyed away from the company in the past perhaps this is a good learning situation for me.j
