Pros: Durable, good speed, does exactly what I wanted. Received yesterday in the afternoon, had it unpacked and running in less than a hour, including loading drivers and software on an older WXP machine my girlfriend uses as her PC. Had no issues in the installation. Tried the print function, scan function and copy function, and they all worked well. Have not tried the fax yet, but that was one of the main reasons to get this.
Cons: Heavy, but not so much that it crushes the table it sits on. Feeder is a bit temperamental, and did not feed straight each time, but that may be out of the packing issues that I may have to look into.
Overall Review: Duplex copy worked well enough, although the feeder probably is a bit off at the moment. Duplex printing was flawless, and color and resolution was what I was expecting for a laser color printer. Worked well with my Nexus 6 android using the brother printer app, and I think it will be a welcome addition to the equipment in the house.
Pros: Got this yesterday, and copied my HDD (750Gb) in about 3 hrs. Booted no problem and appears to be quite stable. This was a direct replacement for a Plextor M5Pro 512 Gb drive that has given me troubles, even after warranty repair/replacement.
Cons: None yet
Overall Review: I used the Corsair copy program, which was very inexpensive and came with USB to SATA III cable. I would buy again the drive and the software. Time will tell how it works out, so ask me how I feel in about the Corsair drive in 18 months, which is about when the Plextor gave me fits.
