    Printer works great for home office. Clear pages. Easy to use. Priced right comparable to big box store.

    Like many others I both realized I didn’t need color printing and was getting very tired-and financially weary-of buying replacement cartridges for my ink jet copier/printer. And my most important need is to print out a whole bunch of documents in B&W only at a reasonable price. So this very well built and spec’d multifunction printer fit the bill perfectly.
    Brother products are top of the line. High tech, high quality and easy to use. Setup was easy and UI is excellent. Just wish it had duplex scanning..

    I haven’t had this printer for too long, but so far, it works pretty good. I have suffered at the hands of cheap inkjet printers from HP for years and was sick and tired of paying ridiculous prices for the stupid tiny ink cartridges that were prone to dry out and quit working if you didn’t use them for months. This is my first laser printer, and I am pretty happy with it. I see a lot of people complain about toner issues and connectivity problems with these printers, and after my experience with this one, I can see how a lot of people might have a problem setting this up if they are not very tech savvy. Luckily, I am a computer wiz, so I was able to overcome most of the technical roadblocks in a timely manner. Below is quick run-down for some of the issues people might have with this type of printer and how to overcome them.

    The first issue someone might have right off the bat is getting it to connect to their network. The DHCP needs to be enabled and have enough addresses available to accommodate another device. Most are set up this way, but not all routers people have for their home networks are created equal, and some come set up from the factory with settings that may limit the ability for peripherals, like printers, to connect to them properly. This is especially true with equipment that is purchased used. Some people, like me :), have their router locked down so tight, that nothing can connect to it unless they want it to.

    There is a setting in most routers with regard to either “Set AP Isolated” or “WLAN Partition” or some other jargon, but they all serve the same purpose. That is to disable network equipment connected to the router from being able to talk to each other. This is great if you want added security on your network, but If these settings are enabled on your router, then you will never be able to print to this printer from any device connected to your network unless you are connected directly by a cable from the computer to the printer. It’s a give and a take. You give up added security, but hey, at least now your can print, right?

    The next mistake most people are going to make it to try to install the printer directly from Windows from the “Printers & Scanners” or from the device manager. Windows has default drivers that work with the printer and will find and install it, but you are shooting yourself in the foot right from the get-go when you do this. The reason being is that you will never be able to get to the settings and preferences that fully manage this printer, and you will not be able to find the setting that allows you to bypass the setting that makes the printer stop printing when the toner gets low. Many reviews on here complain about the toner-stop-printing issue, so this is how you fix it….Go to the Brother website and download the latest drivers for your printer and install all of the software on your computer. DO NOT use the CD that comes with the printer. It could have been sitting in a warehouse for 6 months or a year for all you know, and the drivers are probably not up to snuff. When the software installation reaches the point where you have to opportunity to update all of the software and firmware from the printer, do it. Do not skip that portion of the installation process. There is a sticker on the back of your printer with the “password” that it will ask for when you choose to remotely configure it, and within those settings, you have the wonderful option of setting the “Toner-Low” setting to “Continue” instead of “Stop”. That way, you will never have to use those tricks or sequences to bypass when the printer stops printing when you still have oodles of toner left in the cartridge. Another issue that this solves is the fact that, without the software installed, you would never be able to scan documents from the scanner portion of your all-in-one printer and send them to your computer. You would be stuck with only basic print capability.

    I highly recommended that people also go through their settings for the printer directly at the printer itself and disable the “Auto Power Off” function altogether on the printer. It does not gobble up a million volts of electricity all the time when it’s not being used. The reason I suggest this is because it will disconnect from the network and become “unavailable” for printing until you drag you carcass over to the printer and turn it back on. With the function disabled, it is always connected to your network 24-7 and will wake itself up from “sleep’ and start printing a lot faster then if you had to go and turn it on every time when you haven’t used it in awhile. I will update this review after a few months or add more info if I find any issues that I had to overcome.

    All-in-all, this is a nice little device that can print, fax, scan and copy for a pretty good price. So far, I am really enjoying the benefits of a laser printer over the junky inkjets that I have been using for so long. If you are like me and only print some stuff every now and then and are fed up with clunky inkjets, then you can’t go wrong with a laser printer like this one.

    I don’t print often, but got tired of having to run to a print shop when I do, so I finally bought one. Didn’t want to deal with the hassles of ink jet printers print heads getting clogged, especially as little as I print, so laser was the only option for me. Printer works great, print from Windows, Mac, Android, or IOS devices wirelessly. Scanner/copier works, but auto document feeder always skews the image. Not a big deal to me. Putting a single sheet on the glass scans/copies great.

    Included fax capabilities…for those who still have a working analog phone line. I don’t so…

    Power cord is not detachable, not thrilled about that, minor issue for me.

    Downloaded software from Brother’s website, simple to install and set up the printer.

    Two months in, and I can honestly say this is a fantastic printer. Even though I work in IT (or perhaps because I work in IT), I really appreciate when technology just works. This printer has not disappointed yet. If you’re looking for a solid, dependable, easy-to-use B&W laser printer, I don’t think you’ll find a better one out there than this one. (If you’re a long-time HP printer user, switching to Brother will be a breath of fresh air.)

    – Doesn’t forget the wireless network (always available)
    – Prints quickly from any device we have (Chromebook, Windows 10, and Android devices)
    – When adjusted, print quality is very good (I keep mine on 300 dpi to squeeze as much life out of each toner cartridge, but I was very surprised when I increased it to 1200 dpi for a document that was very light)
    – Scanning resolution is very crisp

    – B&W only
    – I’ve not had a lot of luck with the scan button on the front of the machine, but when I use the associated scanning software and select “scan” from the software, it works 100% of the time

    Overall, I’m quite impressed with the ease of use, quality, and functionality of this product given its price point. I wanted to stay under $300, and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Love this Brother printer. Moved to this from HP as they wouldn’t allow me to use generic toners and will definitely buy a Brother again. No issues at all setting up – read many reviews of people having issues – I had none at all and I’m not tech savvy – just watched the video and done. haven’t worked out how to scan yet but that’s next.

    1st off .. solar should have wrapped it at the very least lightly for privacy/security from prying eyes vs simply relying on the manufacturer’s box~broadcasting for all to see what you’ve bought (I would have gladly paid an extra $10 for some wrapping paper .. seriously 😒) ..

    product review ..
    very good performance/quality if you’re not looking for color, heavy duty quantity .. trust it name brand with decades of history unlike the newer companies from China ..relatively easy to set up .. Good thing it was packaged properly by the manufacturer as I was concerned with the long distance travel and it abuse it must have suffered unlike purchasing one in a store which most likely arrived with multiple units on a pallet~less manhandling abuse ..

    tiny little display screen for status and information ..
    a lot of superfluous/garbage (IE; solicitations/Spanish manuals IMHO)

    *deducted 1 point for attention to detail; lack of wrapping on the exterior (no offense)

    .. still would recommend this type and model of machine to others 👍

    I purchased this printer to replace an inkjet printer. Since receiving it approximately a week ago I have printed more than 2500 double sided pages without issue. The set up very easy and quality of printing is good. I have not yet tried out the scanning functionality but I assume based on all other features used it will work well too. Overall a very good printer for the price.
