Top Customer Reviews
I have not yet tried faxing across the network, but the scanning works great and automatically detects the computers on the network that are installed with the brother software. You can scan from either the buttons on the MFC, or initiate the scan/copy operation from the computer on the network.
As is typical, the documentation is incomplete and inaccurate in many places, but since everything worked right out of the box, it wasn't a big deal.
If you scan a document to file, it will stick it in your "Pictures" folder by default. to change the default scanning settings, you will notice a little icon that gets put up on the top right of your screen next to your clock. Click here to adjust preferences. (not in the documentation!)
We all know that printer companies make their money on the consumables. But this thing is a MONEY PIT. Go with a company that you trust will stand behind the product and not try to dupe you. I do not trust Brother and will search elsewhere for a better, more reliable product.
I am giving up on wireless capability of the printers, will stick to the wired only option. Anyone else have any similar story? Judging by the reviews though it looks like I got a lemon but I am through with Brother.
The design of the printer is great, it is labeled as "compact" but it really isn't THAT small, though since it is an all-in-one I guess there is no way for it to become smaller. The black and grey color scheme really make it looks much more appealing and sitting in my office, it is not an eye sore.
-Printing: it is standard black and white laser printing, fast and clean, all my prints come out very clear, blacks will be pure black and the way it prints greys is good enough.
-Faxing: i connected my fax line into the printer and setting up was a breeze, I did a test run and there really were no problems here, works as a regular fax machine and that's all i need.
-Scanning: you are given the option through the software on your computer of scanning with different settings(image, OCR, e-mail, file). i haven't tried the OCR feature yet. one thing is that the scanner can be very slow sometimes, depending on your settings(which can be modified). in the end, the outcome was good.
-Copying: this function works fine, works just like any other copy machine out there.
-Wireless: this part can always be a problem since it is a feature that is still in development with most companies. but it seems like Brother really did a great job in making the wireless function easy to use and easy to install. all i had to do was install the software included with the printer on each of the computers in my household, i even have a mac to test out the mac software. the software does everything for you, and once the install is finished, you are ready to use the printer wirelessly.
I really enjoy the wireless function, currently the printer is connected to nothing, just the power supply to keep it on, i have 3 computers around the house and they are all connected through it wirelessly, it really is amazing. when scanning a document or image, you can scan it straight from the machine and send the scanned file directly to a certain computer by selecting it on the printer, i though that was cool. i really like the custom scanning features which allow you to scan at different resolutions, colors, and sizes. the big paper tray makes me not worry about running out of paper.
-fax, scan, and copy work efficiently
-wireless function easy to setup and use
-slow scanning @ different settings
-printer size is to big to be labeled "compact"
-only includes starter toner
