    Don't Buy Anything Brother

    I have been a Brother printer user for years. While preparing my taxes, with no time to spare, the printer went from printing fine to not printing at all because it is being blocked by a message to "replace toner cartridge." While I understand that I need a new toner cartridge, the printer was still printing clearly enough for me to complete my tasks for the moment. The idea that the printer stops functioning altogether and suddenly blocks all print jobs with the "replace toner cartridge" message, so that I have to run out and buy a toner cartridge (from Brother) is completely obnoxious. Some things are too obnoxious to deal with ever again. I'm done with Brother for good because of it.

    This printer was a terrific investment at a low cost. The optional high volume toners make it an even better deal. It prints fast and both print/copy are quality. I have really enjoyed using the two sided print and copy feature, more savings by reducing paper use. I haven't had the opportunity to try the double sided scanning, but look forward to saving time on file and document management using that feature since much printing can now be done 2 sided. Lots of printing done in 1st month with no jams or problems. Some preprinted forms a couple of times had multiple forms pulled through at once. Otherwise, a perfect fit for our small office replacing an old printer and an old copier.

    I had a smaller brother multifunction but got tired of buying the cartridges. When it broke I moved to an Epson which worked great but the ink alone cost 80% of that printer and then it had connectivity issues. I returned it and got this and have never been happier. I can find aftermarket toners for cheap online and I actually do not miss the color as much as I thought I would. This is great for my small office and is fast as can be. I have it connected to my mac book pro via wifi and have had no communication issues at all! Get this when it is on sale and you will not be disappointed. Do not forget the Geek Squad warranty in case anything goes wrong! Love Best Buy!

    Price match + free delivery for store PU. Payment was reduced by a laptop trade-in. Used to have Cannon monochrome MFC and HP Pro inkjet color printers with problems. This one replaced a Brother MFC-6800 that I had since 2001. I am very happy with Brother’s printers’ durability. Was looking for another Brother MFC (scanner with software included, fax and copier) monochrome printer. It is a fast double-sided, multi media (letter, legal, envelopes, +) and economical printer. It has a built-in wireless or wired Ethernet networking. It is easy to setup. Thanks BB.

    NOT TOO FRIENDLY with OTHER PROGRAM

    It is faster and quieter but it doesn't play well with my Paperport scanning program. You have to switch back and forth from ADF and flatbed. This would automatically set-up to do both with my older Brother MFC and didn't have to switch back and forth, nor look for any additional instructions. wastes my time. On recommending depends if they are going to have the same problem. But if you not a records keeper, its a nice machine.

    The Brother MFC products offer a lot of bang for the buck at very good prices. In my case this MFC is mainly used for printing and copying but also handles the occasional fax. Print quality is excellent and speedy. This unit is rated at 42 PPM and has duplexing. If you can wait to purchase you can usually find these on sale both at Best Buy and other online retailers.

    This is the 3rd Brother printer I've purchased and it is by far the best. The set up was very easy and straightforward. Worked first try. I like how it scans both sides of the page with a single pass. The output pages are not curled like my previous Brother laser printer. And it runs quieter and faster.

    This printer is a one stop shop for your all in one equipment needs. Very good print quality and relatively easy to operate. Only complaint is that you have to open the rear door when printing a single voucher style check, otherwise it gets jammed.

    Great printer and they finally have the ability to print on the front and back efficiently. Scanners are finally getting up to snuff as well, scanning both sides in one pass. I have bought Brother printers for years, they've never disappointed.

    The double sided printing and scanning are fast. A lot of nice features for the money, toner replacement cost is reasonable and wi-fi setup was done in a few minutes with the wizard. I had tried other printers that could not find the wi fi and the modem was next to the printer.

    Why bother with a big, clunky black and white printer when you can have one of these? The fax, scan, wifi and copy functions work perfectly. I have owned 3 Brother all-in-one black and white laser printers, but this one is the best.

    Replaced some really old dell printers with these and my staff love them. The features are modern and integrate with windows 10 very well. My users are thrilled with the speed of scanning and printing.

    I have owned previous models in this series and have TWO of these. Set up was very easy. Both worked perfectly when first turned on. Wireless easy to set up. Print quality excellent, prints rapidly, scans well, scan feeder good. Both sided printing flawless.

    I highly recommend getting this printer! It is very fast and cuts down in time it takes to print several documents. It is also great for scanning and faxing. Toner can last for months depending on usage.

    Work as a Mobile Notary and require a printer that I can count on to meet +6K pages of documents that are printed every month. Furthermore, the ability to do quick Scan Backs make this product a Win-Win!

    This printer runs very well, sometimes a delay in printing and generally has a slow start but once it gets moving it really pumps out the pages. It lasts long with heavy printing.

    Fantastic device for a small office (6 people) that needs network printing, copying, faxing and scanning. Scanning to email or a specific device is a breeze. Setup is extremely easy. Will purchase for another office.

    I have been very satisfied with this printer, fax scanner!! I did have to get my IT guy to set it up for me because of phone line issues and hooking it up to scan directly into a software we use but it's been working smoothly
