Seems like an excellent machine

by john72653 on 12/21/2010

Setup was easy with the Quick Guide instructions. Only problem I have is with the awkward paper tray when loading legal size paper. Machine could have been so much more valuable if it had two trays. Print speed is much better than my HP PSC 1610, and I am hoping the ink supply is economical.

Don't Buy This Printer

on 6/20/2011

Setup is extremely easy except for the strange way the printer cable must be inserted if you aren't in wireless mode. The major issue is that printer continually cleans the print heads, using a significant amount of ink. In fact, it started cleaning them continuously and would never print my documents. A new set of ink cartridges just gave it more ink to drain. After 6 months, I returned it. Forget Brother's tech support - useless.
