I received the printer and it would only printout blank pages. I called the Brother help number. The person who answered the phone had me run some tests on the machine and said she was going to send me a new drum and toner. I never received them so I returned the printer to Walmart (did not have trouble returning the printer).
The brouther website has win 8 setup up but it is a mess and full of wrong info..\nAlso does not support Eprint of wireless print.\nIf you think you may get a new PC don't buy this as all new PC's have windows 8.
What I really like about this printer is The ability to plug in my USB flash drive and print whatever I have in there without using a computer. Double sided printing is a plus. Wifi easy to use. Touchscreen control work perfect. The only drawback that I see is that it takes little paper. Also, printing too much black on plain paper with small amounts of other colors look a little faded. She doesn't have the slot to print on CD's like the 875 series do. But I don't complain, she's really fast at printing multiple documents. Overall, she does more than I expected.
Easy wireless connect, intuitive control, works well in all features.\nWindows 8 Pro and XP OS used and works fine wireless with both (home network thru router).\nWhen using \"Ink Saver mode\", pictures and graphics do not appear usable\nbut text is still OK. That feature will save ink for your normal quick print needs.\nI used two of the MFC-480CN for 5 years now and it appears that Brother does have some of the\nmost inexpensive ink replacement cartridges available on the market. I have been able to use replacement (non-Brother) cartridges in the MFC-480CNs for the last 4 years now and purchasing them at less than $4 and sometimes $3 a color. Hoping to be able to do the same with this printer.
Was looking specifically for a color printer as I was finding myself running out to Staples or FedEx too often. Decided to invest in a color printer to save me time and money. Well worth the expense. Color from printer is nice and vibrant, set up was easy, shipping was quick. Printer color is off-white, not black like on picture.\n\nYou will not regret purchasing this product.\nI must mention that cartridges cost an arm and a leg. But, they all do.
I have an at home business and needed this for fast, efficient printing. Well... this item is not anywhere near as fast as my old, really inexpensive Kodak printer. I wanted to print 168 color copies and it took several hours to do this. I actually went to bed after 1am after trying to wait for it to finish. So frustrating! I did then make copies and that was faster. 200 copies took maybe 30 mins. But if you don't want to wait a week to print your project for school or work, pick another printer.The ink also isn't available in the store where we live so have to order it online. I guess I should've done a bit more searching before committing to this so so all in one mess!
