    Quick and Reliable

    The printer is quiet and fast. It holds a full pack of paper. The print quality seems fine and it was painless to install. The printer software came on a disk, Just let it load, plug in the printer and print your document. I love it when things work the way they're expected. Perfect printer for a college student. I have this in my room and it makes printing much easier. iI can print a stack of 50 pages before you can blink. in black and white, of course. I wouldn't use this for anything other than text documents. HOWEVER, the cartridge that is included barely lasted me 100 sheets before it needed to be replaced. Don't waste your money on the brother cartridges, I bought some grey knockoff ones on amazon (two of them for $30 or so), and so far they have lasted way longer than the included one, with no loss in quality.

    Good, "old school" workhorse printer

    This printer is just what I was looking for. My husband is a writer, and my daughter is a graphic artist. Unfortunately, she frequently runs out of color ink on our other printer, which then doesn't print in black either (for him) until the color is replaced. So... I got hubby this printer, and he loves it. Heads up: it can't copy, it's not as inexpensive as some low-end color printers, and it doesn't have bluetooth/networking. (It uses an "old school" cord, which is not included). But... where the others really get you with the cost of replacing ink, this one has a much cheaper and more dependable option -- toner. Now he can print as much as he wants (which is a LOT), way faster than before, and cheaper than any other printer we've ever had. So, if you need to do a lot of fast, cheap (but sill good quality) printing in just black, this printer is a great option. We're very satisfied.

    It performs on par with most laser printers of its class, fast, efficient, good quality output, fairly quiet. I was at first reluctant to buy it being a HP fan, because I read the drum and toner are both consumables. Then I read HP no longer includes the drum in their toner replacements either. Time will tell how much the consumables will cost. I liked the size, the fact that it has a paper try, and don't laugh, and the color for my home office. General business printing and envelopes work about as well as any laser I've ever owned.

    Budget Laser Printer

    Good budget laser printer without scanning or copying capabilities. Also not wireless, but print quality is good. Makes quite a bit of noise when it prints. Accepts generic toner refills for low cost printing. You will need another scanner/flatbed copier/fax for those functions, but you can get an inexpensive wireless ink jet for that and just use the laser printer for printing. I have found Brother printers to be more reliable than similarly priced HP, Epson or Samsung printers.

    5 minutes and printing

    Bought it today, really Easy set up, pretty much plug and play using win10. Haven't researched how to set up toner saver, but will. Watched a quick video on youtube about putting in the the toner, easiest process ever (had never done it before). Just google the model number and toner and its the first video, really simple after watching the two minute clip. It's loud for sure thus 4 stars instead, but for the price, and only needing to print black and white hope it lasts at least 6 months, if so it will have paid for itself twice over. Old usb cord from previous inkjet printer fit perfectly, no need for a new one.

    Problem initially

    Right out of the box it left streaks on the left side of the printed paper. Finally had to disassemble the printer and remove the toner cartridge and the drum. Inspecting the drum, I found black (toner?) debris on the left side and removed it with a Q-Tip rotating the drum around to get it all. This should NOT happen on a brand new unit. This is our second Brother - the first lasted for 10 years and that is the reason I bought this one.

    Good Laser Printer for $60

    This is nice little laser printer for a price like a inkjet printer. I don't print that often and the inkjet I had, always cleaned the head every day and eventually used up all the ink while I had printed no more than 20 pages. The laser will be an ideal solution for people like me who rarely print. Ideally, this printer would have connected to my wifi or ethernet. Right now, I have a dedicated computer to act as a print server.

    I bought this printer originally thinking I could use it on my network with my router's print server. It was more complex than I wanted (or understood completely) and after a few days of using it as a USB only printer, I exchanged it for the similar model ending in DW. That one has wifi and easier networking. When I did print stuff with this printer, it was acceptable quality and printed fairly quickly. For a dedicated USB printer, I would recommend this item.

    I bought this on a whim because I really wanted to do gold foiling for my wedding. I originally intended to return it after but ended up using it for so many other things I decided to keep it. It prints B&W very quickly and gets the job done. A nice functional printer for the price. It's registration isn't impeccable but it has numerous loading trays and is also pretty easy to clear jams which is very nice.

    Purchased this as I was spending too much money during the year on the color ink cartridges for my Canon Pixma inkjet. Most of the things I print do not have to be in color, so I checked the pricing of this unit and ran some test pages on Best Buy's display mode. Print quality was really good and the price was nothing to balk about. My only regret is I didn't spring for a wireless model. I used it for about two months now and I'm quite happy with the printer.

    I had an older Brother Laser $100 and it finally died after 8 years. The part that needed to be replaced was too costly.. I was looking for a replacement and saw this. While my previous had the wireless and a few more features. I really didn't use them.. So this one was perfect for the Price. My original cable fit perfect no need for any additional purchase. Brother lasers are perfect if you don't need color.

    The Brother was purchased by me for a short-term utility purpose. I come to the States for two weeks annually and do income taxes. Instead of paying $50 to ship one of my printers both to and from the States, it was cheaper to buy a cheap printer. This printer held up to 12000 pages printed in two weeks. The first cartridge gave up the ghost after 600 pages (it is rated at 1200 pages), but the other cartridges did much better.

    The printer is black & white only and is a laser printer with great quality. Lacking copy function and wi-fi. It has duplex printing and with the toner TN-660, it will print about 2500 pages. Good bang for the buck. If you want wi-fi, then buy a model with DW on the end of the model number.

    1st time online purchase from Best Buy. Printer seems fine. Easy to install, does double-sided printing. Too bad it is not a multi-function machine. For this same money I have bought a similar unit in Canada that has a scanner/fax/copier function. Why do we think everything is cheaper in the US? Physically in the US so I had to buy here. It's an OK printer. If it were faster I'd give it 5 stars.

    Great printer at a competitive price. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the Brother drivers with the most features to function in WIndows 10; hence I was left without some desirable features, like two-sided printing. The extended Brother drivers did, however, install perfectly in Windows 8.1.Yields excellent text and very good graphics output. I deem it a good value.

    Our large business printer needed major maintenance, and I needed an immediate secondary printer. For the price, this black & white laser printer does well for small print jobs. We still use the 'Little Brother' while the business printer is busy with large batches. Wired printer requires physical connection to a PC and network share to allow additional computers access.

    I needed a basic monochrome laser printer and this model seems to meet my needs. Inexpensive. I found the noise generated by the normal speed of 30 pages/minute to be annoying, so I'm using the quiet mode which reduces the noise, halves the speed and nearly halves the power consumption. The dual sided print feature is a nice plus.

    bought the printer for use at the small office at home. It is good for light printing like a 10 page report, 1-2 pages rebate forms, recipes, and whatever odds and ends printing needs. It is not a work horse if you want to print 200 pages booklet or anything like that. It is a bit slower to get the prints out. but it is good for home use. No complains at this low cost.

    Overall I really like this printer now that I have used it for a while. I especially like having 2-sided printing so easily available. The print quality is quite good. It took me a few days to realize that to shut it off, you need to hold down the power button for 10 seconds. My only negative is that it makes a fair amount of noise while printing.
