Performance

I have owned Epson and HP in my entire 25 year IT career, and I am glad I took a chance on the Brother. Wireless setup was easy - as long as you followed the instructions and used a network cable initially. The print quality is fantastic for presentations and text - I saved my Epson CX9400 for pictures (but it wastes too much ink). Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

-A customer quote

The printer comes with "Starter Cartridges" that are advertised to last about 1000 pages. My black cartridge ran out at 550 pages. Color cartridges all ran out at the same time (fishy!) at 740 pages. And I am a very moderate, text-only, mostly B&W user. I opened the black cartridge and it seemed to be atlest one-third full of toner still. So the printer is set up to report an empty cartridge much before it is empty. So within a few months of purchase, I have to spend more on a new set of cartridges than what I paid for the printer. Brother is running a big scam here. Lose money on printer, make a bundle on cartridges that don't last as advertised.
