I have but two complaints:
First, the paper comes out slightly curled, but this is a fact of life for a printer this size.
Second, Brother has programmed the printer such that when its thinks the toner is empty, it stops working. This happened to me when I was printing some important documents. I did some internet searches and examined the toner cartridge. There is a clear plastic circle at each end of the toner cartridge. The printer shines a light through to see how full the toner is. Simply cover one of them with a piece of opaque tape, and the printer will think that the toner is full. I've already gotten 1500+ pages out of the starter toner that was "empty" at 983, with no difference in printed quality.
I followed the instructions in the manual but my iMac (running Leopard) couldn't "see" the printer on my Airport Express Network.
Emails to tech support initially went unanswered.
I finally called tech support (thinking it would be a waste of time) but they were incredibly helpful --- I was only on hold for a few moments!
We got disconnected but the Brother tech support guy called me back ---- twice!
Here's where I went wrong:
1) I didn't download the Leopard drivers from the Brother Website.
2) I entered the wrong info about my Airport Express (write down your wireless network settings before you start the installation).
3) I didn't click the Airport icon on the menu and select "Setup" from the drop down menu.
4) I didn't "add" the wireless printer after the installation was complete.
Now it works perfectly and the USB cable has already been sold on eBay.
The print jobs have been excellent --- very clear and crisp.
The printer itself is compact with no extending paper trays.
I'm very impressed with this printer and with Brother tech support. Highly recommend this wireless printer.
This computer can be "reset" if you need to start all over again (as described in the manual).
As for installation, under Mac OSX, it's a breeze. Personally, I HATE "installation" CD's that come with peripherals like this. I don't want a bunch of crappy bloatware on my system that i don't need. All i want are the proper drivers and I'll let the operating system handle things. For OSX, i connected it to my network via ethernet, opened Safari, clicked the "bookmark" icon on the left side of the bookmark bar and selected opened the Bonjour browswer. Found the printer, double clicked on it, and boom, was using the web interface (userid = admin; password=access). From there, i configured it to my wifi network, easily (make sure you turn on DHCP if you plan on using it, it's not on by default) re-booted the printer cut the cable and installed it using the "add printer" option in the control panel. I did need to download the latest CUPS drivers from Brother-usa.com, but once that was installed, the printer practically installed itself.
For windows users, it may be a little trickier as you don't have the Bonjour (ZeroConfig) abilities, but if you can figure out the IP address, you should be able to hit the web interface as well.
My way is not for the rookies, but if you have a decent idea of what you're doing, its much better than jumping through the hoops with the installation CD. Mine went straight to the trash.
Duplex printing saves so much paper. I set everything to print double-sided by default and have therefore used half as much paper. I used to manually print double-sided by printing all odd pages, turning them around and orienting them in the tray just right (which takes a lot of remembering!) and hoping that everything was alright.
The laser printer lasts for a long time on one toner. The starter toner even lasted a few months during school printing. I changed the toner once about a year and a half ago and it has been going strong since then. I've probably only printed a few thousand sheets, including some transparencies, but they all have turned out great!
Tip for the frugal consumer: Get this printer on sale, since it's going to save you paper (and money!) and you won't buy ink cartridges (also super expensive). Then, when the toner says it's out, tape over the spot where the sensor looks to see whether the toner is full or empty (there are tutorials online). The toner that was "empty" will happily print out another couple of thousand pages - more money savings!
Overall, a great printer for the money that will last a long time, with networking capabilities. I'm pleased.
