Pros Copier, Fax work fine
Cons Color Laser Printer Quality Terrible!
Summary The Editors Choice award & high rating convinced me to go for this overweight behemoth even though I have never owned a "Brother" before. In the past I've used a Canon, Epson, Dell & HP & I have good color quality on all. However the color quality on this machine is a complete whitewash, even at a max 2400 DPI and vivid color setttings. I tried their nightmare of a website to download the firmware as per their faq's and I get nowhere. I e-mailed them & received a 7-PAGE TO DO list which I am trying to decipher!!Ready to send it back packing!!
Pros Very fast printing
Cons A little slow with initial start-up
Summary Overall I'm really pleased with this printer. Color is great and it prints very fast. All-in-one capabilities are very good. Scanning and copying is easy. Faxing works well too.
Pros THe printer works great when it works.
Cons The software is way underpowered compared even to my 8 year old inkjjet. Very few options. COmpany a nightmare to deal with to the point of being unresponsive.
Summary Love the product/hate the company. THe company is a nightmare to deal with and totally unresponsive. It's easy to wait 1 hour on hold without reaching a tech. Call Customer relations? THey'll say they will call back in an hour but don't. There is no excuse for such a large company to show so little support. Want to buy something? Ge through quickly. Already a customer? Good luck!
Pros There is a fairly full set of features for a multi function unit in this price range. Meets all the requirements for my small business. Print quality is good and decent PC interface for most functions
Cons Color quality is very poor. First page is a little slow coming out but after that it's ok. Consumables are rediculously priced. Life of consumables leaves something to be desired.
Summary Not sorry I bought it but due to the cons listed above I will replace the unit or use only for B/W printing, copy and fax untill the belt needs replacement at which point I will replace the Printer. Can't see how anyone can write a four or five star review unless they work for Brother or it's ad agency.
Pros Consistent and reliable printing
Fast scanning when used with a pc
Easy set up on a network
Cons Slow copy function
Summary I purchased this printer for my 2 man office based on CNET's review. I'm very pleased with that decision. There are a few minor cons, but overall this multi-function unit is a workhorse. For a year now it's not presented any problem, it just keeps on working. I highly recommend!
