5 out of 5 eggsLove Brother Printers

Pros: Not only is the product itself good quality, I love the connectivity and ease of use of Brother software. Plus, I got this for a really good price.

Cons: Toner cartridges that come with the product are definitely not full. They don't last very long.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good product, just wish it came with full toner cartridges.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied !

Pros: Great laser printer for the money. Replaces my old Konica Magicolor laser. This printer is quieter and much faster. Also nicer front panel controls than Konica-Minolta.

Cons: I was disappointed with the color saturation at first. I tried to manually tweak the color, but could not find it's sweet spot. On a whim I tried setting the color adjustment to auto. That did the trick and now the color and saturation are excellent. This adjustment is under preferences, settings, auto (radio button)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Printer.

Pros: This COLORED LASER printer cost $259.99 and is worth every penny. Not only is it cheaper than many of the competitors but the toners for this printer is substantially cheaper than the toners for other laser printers.

Cons: No Wireless Capabilities

Other Thoughts: I've been using laserjet printers for my whole life and I definitely regret not purchasing a laser printer due to its cost efficiency and the quality of the printers. This BROTHER printer is extremely easy to use and to set up. Also, the company Brother is VERY reliable and is known to have produced some of the best laser printers.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: This printer sets ups quickly, and prints fast! I am very pleased with this printer. It holds plenty of paper. Best of all it seems to be of the classic brother quality, it is sturdy, and easy to use.

Cons: The printer is heavier and bigger than my old inkjet, but that is what you get with any laser printer. It is actually on the smaller side of laser printers, and is still plenty light enough to be able to sit on the shelf above my monitor on my desk.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome for the price

Pros: The printer is inexpensive and so is the toner.

Cons: Like a lot of other Brother printers, the toner isn't really empty when the printer says it's empty. The reset trick still works on this printer though so I don't really care. Printing envelopes when it's humid out will actually seal the envelope. To get around this I just fold the lip around the back of the envelope before feeding it.

Other Thoughts: pound for pound, you can't beat Brother.
