So far, so good

This printer fits our house perfectly; we do minimal printing, we need a scanner and sometimes need to do some copying.

The set up is easy and went on to update itself immediately.

The wireless function means less cables and I can now print the odd email from my phone.

The printing quality is satisfactory. I can't say much more than that for a simple black and white toner printer.

Scanning is quick and efficient and documents are manageable once scanned. Scanning multiple pages per time.

We have no use for fax function and have not used.

Seems very cost effective for occasional printing - no risk of cartridges drying out. Higher cost for toner but expect to yield over 5000 pages for $80 in comparison to less than a ream of paper for expensive, clunky cartridges.

Won't stack pages for me

I have to manually sort and stack pages even when printing in order. I hate that. Who makes a printer that can't stack pages without having to do it manually? What it this? Five pages and I have to print one set at a time or sort them ALL myself. I am too busy for that.

Great printer.... no really!

This printer has very good print quality even on a lower setting. there are several settings and it is easy to set up and use. I especially like the fact that I can actually print in BLACK and it uses only BLACK ink. Plus it has a toner type cartridge and is much lower in cost than the other companies that have only little ink cartridges. I have not had any paper feed issues but it is a new machine and as printers age they can become misaligned and start to jam. I did my homework and most newer Brother printers rate fairly well.

Can be noisy at high speed print setting
Wireless set up may sometimes take a while to connect.

Multi Function B/W Laser Printer

This printer is wonderful. It took about 5 minutes to set up and the toner cartridges are very affordable.

It does everything it claims to do and easily. Quality is great for the small office. This range appears to have been built for affordability and quality. Touch screen is easy to navigate and having the option of printing from your chosen cloud is a plus.

This printer cost me a little under $200 - which I think is an absolute steel! Printer cartridges are around $30 and run for 2600 pages.

If you need an affordable MFC printer and don't need colour, this has to be on your check list!
