    I notice there are four different color toners. Can you change only the empty or do you have to change all colors at once?   (9 Answers)

      Answer

      Change only what you need. Each cartridge has a chip in it to tell you when it is low and to prepare (buy) that color when it finally will not print anymore. Make sure to have that color ready to install or else you cannot even print black and white...because, believe it or not, it "throws" in some of the other colors even in Black and White or Greyscale.

        Answer

        The regular filled toner will cost about $60 (Brother Brand Toner) and print 2500 pages. That's about 2 cents per page for black and white. If you do color its about 10 cents per page. Remember that you can purchase third party toner with a higher capacity at a lower cost, but you will lose some quality in color prints.

              Answer

              No. The CDW unit does. CDW is Color Duplex Wireless. I almost got the CDW model but I considered how much Duplexing I would be doing (less than 1% of all print jobs) and got the CW model. And I am glad I did. Once I learned the orientation of the already printed page to go back thru for the second side, it is a breeze. Glad I saved the $$.

                Yes it does. I can print directly from my phone; however, when I print, everything is really big, pictures and text. I don't know if there is a way to fix this.

                  Will this print on card stock? Like for business cards or greating cards?   (5 Answers)

                    Answer

                    Yes, it will. You have to use the manual feeder, and open up the back flap of the printer (otherwise the card stock printout will turn out really curly). The card stock will go through and come out on the other side. There are switches you can use in the back to adjust, depending on the thickness of the card stock.
