"Ships with introductory toner only good for 1000 copies"3.0 starson by adab31
Pros: 1) Low price, 2) fairly compact size, and 3) good quality output, 4) drum rated at 12,000 copies, 5) easy to setup
Cons: 1) Unit is shipped with only a 1000 count toner
2) The 2500 count toner replacement costs more than the sale price of the new printer
3) no supplies status: no page count remaining on the toner or drum -- control panel lights advise low supply levels
Summary: Printer seems to be a good value at $59 after mail-in rebate at Office Depot this week (10/31), however, I am a bit put off by the reduced count toner unit that the printer ships with. I do not see this mentioned anywhere in the unit specifications or sales literature.As it turns out, the reduced count 'Starter Toner Cartridge' is mentioned in the product brochure under Supplies and Yields, so there is no overt misrepresentation by Brother. I just did not see it.
