Confirmed purchaser Frequent home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
* Double-sided printing, copying and scanning

* "Starter" cartridges seem to have plenty of toner. So far printed 750 colour pages and 2,000 black pages with no sign of running out (but no idea how much toner is left)

* Good value for money with Brother cash-back promotion

* Well-featured driver allowing control of duplex booklet printing and a host of refinements
Bad points:
*A plethora of consumable items: apart from paper and toner, there is the
Drum unit (17,000 pages);
Belt unit (50,000 pages);
Fuser Unit (80,000 pages);
Laser Unit (100,000 pages);
MP tray Paper Feeding kit (50,000 pages) and
Paper Feeding Kit (100,000 pages)

* No indication of cartridge toner levels

* Duplex printing is slow but worth waiting for.

* Don't expect photo quality - it isn't

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The printer set-up first time and once the software was installed I could scan and print over the network with ease. Its a good scanner, copier and the Duplex printing saves lots of paper.
Bad points:
I had to go and find the windows 7 software. The one on the supplied CD installed but failed to function properly. My only issue with this printer is that I wanted to have a spare set of toner for it as a precaution and I can by a new printer with toner for less than a set of cartridges so if that continues to be the case when the toner is done I will get another device.

Good points:
So far this machine does everything we want it to.......the print qualityty of photos is much better than we anticipated, it works quietly and efficiently, it may be early days but for a small business this machine is making our job easier
Bad points:
The manual - having to download it - its huge - would have expected a proper printed copy from such a well known company

Good points:
Great performance, excellent quality printing and extremely quiet, does everything it says it offers, very easy to use, I particular like the tray indicator telling you when you are low on paper, love the automatic duplex, just right for news letters and greeting cards.
