1 out of 5 eggsbad design

Pros: It seemed like a nice all in one for the price.

Cons: Clogged black print head after 10 weeks of light use (less than 250 pages total printed). Have only used Brother brand ink cartridges. Read in some forum that if you let an ink cartridge go completely empty in this model, it damages the print head. If that turns out to be true, I cannot stress strongly enough to not buy this printer. That was a HORRIBLE design decision. Whether or not it is true, a non-functional print head after 10 weeks of light use is completely unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Brother makes some great printers. This is not one of them.

1 out of 5 eggsBrother MFC-J220

Pros: Cheap ink.

Cons: The paper jams constantly, and it just won't print. The paper drawer is made of very thin plastic that feels like it might break if not handled like an egg. I have to print my stuff at work.

Other Thoughts: Plan to buy another printer locally so I can see how it works, and I will pay more for something else. I want quality.

3 out of 5 eggsNever got item because BEACH AUDIO is a SCAM

Pros: Specs look great too bad I never got my printer. See below why BEACH AUDIO is the worst company I have ever done business with

Cons: BEACH AUDIO sent me paper towels instead of a printer. After an hour or more on the phone, they made me pay to send them back to the warehouse. They never updated me on the status of the transaction. Only after I had sent them back, did they tell me that they were out of stock of the printer and to buy it from another site because it was cheaper anyway! They held the paper towels hostage and would not help me until they got their items back. What a bunch of incompetent fools. Cost me time, energy, shipping, and newegg a sale. ABSOLUTE FAILURE!

Other Thoughts: I will obviously never buy from BEACH AUDIO again. Too bad I couldn't have used newegg support on this purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsSUCKS

Pros: all in one?

Cons: ALways cleaning wasting my ink and time

Other Thoughts: spent 10 min waiting for it to clean itself even thought some of my inks were gone (i had to shake them up just to get some more life out of them)

so now what little ink i do have its not wasting on some ten minute cleaning job....

that is stupid....

i hate this this always doing stupid htings that i as the user do not want it to do....

i guess in this brave new world the technology controls the people.....

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The 4 cartridge ink setup. I just needed a very basic printer and there were some cheaper but the prices of the ink cartridges were ridiculous. This thing has a lot of features I may never need since I already have a larger scanner but who knows, I may need them sometime. I could have used a Fax machine last February to save mailing some info in for my taxes.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Always research the ink prices before buying a printer. A printer is not a bargain if the ink costs more than it does.

2 out of 5 eggsPhased obsolescence in vogue at Brother

Pros: Fine scanner

Cons: Ugly, clunky software
Uses large quantity of ink for cleaning
Broke quickly

Other Thoughts: The black ink head on my printer is permanently clogged, despite regular cleaning cycles which used a good deal of ink. I've had this MFC for about 1.5 years, and will now either toss it in the trash or use it as a huge, unwieldy scanner only because it is out of warranty and repairing the print head would be prohibitively expensive. Will not buy from Brother again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks.

Pros: Good quality on normal, great quality on high. Does everything I need reasonably quickly. Easy setup

Cons: Uses a fair amount of ink, scan times can be high when using HQ. No wifi, but I knew that.

Other Thoughts: Bought this mainly for wedding invitations and a couple document scans. It has done very well with these tasks. I'm sure for more money I could have gotten them done quicker, but I am completely satisfied for what I paid.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Happy

Pros: It's a Brother.
Prints fantastic, great color, Good black and white.
Small for a MFC but large for a Home Printer.
Quality...It's built with the Idea that you are buying a printer and not INK...

Prints fast..
Not all that loud...
Good looking..

Cons: Doesn't print the Best Photo's
Software for print projects is online.

Other Thoughts: I think Brother Printer are the best printers for home use...
This is my 3rd Brother printer ...The 1st never died it simply got to be useless due to technology improvements...The 2nd Brother Printer I had dies after 4 years of heavy heavy use...I then tried 5 other brands of Printers only to find that with other brands you are not buying a Printer....You are in fact buying INK and more ink and more ink etc....etc...

With Brother I have the option to buy ink for basic printing and I have the option to buy Brother Innobella Ink and high quality photo paper for Photos that are fairly good...

I believe this is sent Factory Direct and not from a warehouse....

I hope Brother stays around forever...Best Printers on EARTH!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNice small footprint

Pros: Small footprint. Easy setup. Windows 7 found it immediately and installed the drivers automatically.

Cons: Scanner bed is only 8.5 x 11.

Other Thoughts: The print quality as it comes new right out of the boxis a little light. Then again I haven't played with the settings so I really don't know how much that can be adjusted.

I use it more for its scanning capabilities than anything else as I have a color laser printer.
