Purchased this machine yesterday and it was easy to setup as a USB printer, fax scanner and copier. The duplex printing and pc faxing will save me plenty of paper. I also added a linksys wireless print server to add this machine to my network and now all our computers can print, fax, scan and copy using this machine.

Excellent Machine!

by JPA on 10/14/2011

Pro: Fast, Versatile, Low operating cost, Sturdy, Low initial cost (on sale) Con: A little noisy, not great at envelopes I bought on of these for a small office as a refurb at under $300. I would buy another just to have as a spare if I felt I would need it, but it is pretty rugged. The duplexing (even on incoming faxes!) works great. The toner use is very low and replacement toner in the high capacity cartridges is pretty reasonable. It wrinkles #10 envelopes which is a little dissapointing but I live with it. It makes my fluorecent lights flicker when it comes out of standby but so does another Brother Laser Printer I have. I've gotten used to it. At under $300 don't hesitate to purchase. Read More
