    Nice Upgrade for Modest Home or Small Business Use

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    This seems to be geared more for a small business than a home printer - it is rather bulky. But it offers a document feeder and 2-sided printing in color, and a fast print speed - all making printing a pleasure rather than an ordeal. Print quality is very good for home use. Perhaps for printing color flyers and handouts for a business you may want a printer that prints colors more vividly, however. I have not owned it long enough to evaluate the "mileage" of the INKvestment tanks, of course. I set it up as a USB connection to a laptop. Setup went smoothly. Instructions for setting paper tabs in paper trays seemed a bit convoluted, but marks molded into the plastic trays help the user push and pull and turn everything properly. I found that I had a "favorite" or "most used" configuration that I just left alone, and all was fine. There is a sheet feeder in the back top of the unit that holds a modest number of sheets. If the paper in the single large paper tray runs out during a print job, and the same size and type of paper are available in the sheet feeder, the printer will use those while also sending out a "Paper Empty" notice. So you will not have a job stop mid-way through unless its page count overwhelms the sheet feeder stock. The printer runs more quietly than most. The LCD screen displays useful information, including status of a job in progress. It is big enough for normal fingers to hit the correct spot pretty much all the time.

    Brother is Best!

    I love this printer. I have been a fan of Brother since 2004 when I purchased my first one. It lasted me up until last month when I purchased this one. With more than 17 years use from the last one, it was a no brainer to purchase Brother again.

    I love the idea of the larger and more economic ink cartridges. Its quick, and print quality even on draft is amazing. Would buy it over again and I highly recommend!

    Prints great

    The only complaint I have is that I can't figure out how to print in landscape. There's no option on the print menu and no 11*8.5 option that I can find. Outside of that easy set up and great quality printing.

    This printer meets all my needs. Had a little trouble figuring out how to direct print to the MP tray, but got it worked out. My mistake was in trying to use the menu which works for copying, but to print a file the Print screen that pops up on the computer screen is the way to go. LP

    I love Brother AIO products and have been very satisfied with the quality and performance. I previously owned a MFC-J6910DW for 8 years; the only fax/copier/printer/scanner that has lasted longer than all other AIO fax/copier/scanner/printers invested in.

    This printer does everything and at a very reasonable price. We use the printer very often for picture and high volume printing. Ink cartridges are very long lasting.

    This printer, copier, scanner and fax far exceeded my expectation. The pdf writer built into the scanner is worth the price. Could not be happier.

    I thought it would be better. Purchased based on the company name. The printer jams and is difficult to clear. Also has leaked ink inside on a couple of occasions.

    After searching for several months for a printer that would deliver high quality printed materials, I decided on the Brother. I am glad I did. The set up was easy and I was able to print right away. I am happy with this purchase.

    So far I am very satisfied with this product, my only complaint is that the paper adjustment guides do not go small enough to print on 3x5 index cards.

    Printer

    Sadly, this printer has an ongoing problem that Brother service cannot seem to fix and they just say "this is normal". Specifically, the printer starts up with chimes and runs a printhead cleaning at east once an hour day and night. They have shipped out a replacement printer that does the exact same thing, so I think it is a basic problem with this model and its software and not a feature. If I had known it would do this, I would not have ordered it and will not recommend it to anyone until they can eliminate the problem. No one at Brother could tell me how often it is supposed to run the print head cleaning cycle, but 24 times a day seems a bit extreme (not to mention noisy and disruptive). Other than this annoying problem, the printer itself works fine.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
