Rated 5 out of 5 by DenimFan Quality black printing plus copier & fax & scanner
We were tired of paying for color cartridges that dried up or quit working. We were tired of not being able to print BLACK if a COLOR cartridge was dry. We were tired of replacing expensive cartridges when we hadn't gotten the good out of them. We were just sick and tired of ink jet printers. We have lost count on how many we have had, and they always convinced us that they had greatly improved. Ha!
We decided to go with a black-only laser printer. We have used it for over a month now, waiting to write a review in order to know the machine better. We are pleased in every way. We have three wireless Mac computers (one 10.4.11; two 10.7.5) , and it was easy to set them all up with the disk included with the machine.
We have never had a jam even though we recycle used-on-one-side paper.
We have used all the features, and the manual that comes with the machine made everything easy to understand.
I don't see how we could like this Brother machine any better than we do. Something might happen tomorrow that will change our minds, but right now, today, it is the best printer we have had.
Oh, one thing. It scans to pdf, not ocr. That means I can't put it into my documents as text, only as a "picture." Bummer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MakeitworkforMacs Good work horse but...
I have not yet figured out how to scan to my iMac. The menu just says "Scan to PC" and it does not work for the Mac so far. I need to do research. Other than that it's working great. Seat up was pretty easy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AL3920 Very capable machine
This is the first laser multifunction machine we have used in our business and so far it has been working great. Set up was very easy and the machine has excellent features for this price level. I highly recommend this printer and I would definitely purchase another for my home office.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CSV4 Works great with Hotspots from a smart phone
Walmart's price was great for this product. Only $50.00 more for wireless. Worked great with my smart phone hotspot set-up to allow my laptops to print wireless. No USB connections. Took a little time to install the driver software into the laptops, but that is to be expected.
