GREAT RIGHT OUT OF BOX
Worked right out of the box which was taken to my car and loaded by a Wal Mart person. It was an amazing experience. Set up the next day and it worked right out of the box. Originally set up using wireless but then decided to use ethernet and needed some help to convert. Brother technical support walked me through the process which took less than 5 minutes. Also needed a bit of help for printer to recognize second computer. Again, Brother support was excellent. Able to print now from either of 2 Macs, either of two iPads and both iPhones. Have always been an HP fan until now but Brother has earned my future business.
"Does the job and then some"
Traded up from the 2700 series because of the dual page and multi page scan bundling capabilities- talk about reducing clutter and reducing scan time. one of the greatest feature is the ability to scan directly to a USB flash drive-you dont need a computer. Major convenience. Could not be happier with this purchase.
It simply works.
Plug it in, install the software, & done.
Works on all OS we have; XP to Win10.
All phases of the software work on all OS versions.
Drivers are solid, no issues. One set covers all our OS.
Software (fax, scan...) is solid, no issues.
No issues during installation, or after.
Touchscreen is relatively large, so not an issue for those with big fingers.
This model has a larger platen, which is nice.
Simply a pleasure to install & use. It works.
Very thoughtful features!
I have been using brother for the last 11 years and I never regretted. This MFC-L5900DW was upgrade from my 7 year Brother printer and it has been a month. I was impressed the features that it was brought in and the speed that it brings with the quite sound. I have more than 10 devices connected to this printer and I never shutdown once or connectivity issue. My devices include Google cloud print, remote printing capabilities, mac and Windows and it worked find on these options. The most feature that I was impressed the scaning speed and content managment tool that comes with it or save it to the google drive. The other printer companies may be offering these features. My only suggestion is, for this given price and features, this is amazing. I am fairly techie where I did research before I bought this printer and I am completely satisfied. Remember, any electronics, nobody gurantees 100% but for me, I can't complain about this printer for my heavy usage of this printer.
so far, so good
Ive had this machine for about a month. So far its great! The feeder works very well, is fast, and handles a big stack of papers well. The scanning software has many options and is overall user friendly (Better than the older Samsung & Canon units I have). I'm considering purchasing more, but I'm waiting to see if I have any ink streaking problems that I've read in reviews online. I am glad to see there is an 3000 copy toner cartridge, an 8000 cart AND a 12,000 copy toner cartridge. Looking forward to see how long they really last. I use Supplies Outlet generic cartridges for all my other machines (Canons and Samsungs) without problems, hoping to have the same success with this Brother machine too
It's durable, fast and simple to use but......
Only holds half a ream of paper and it's not able to be set up to allow both wireless and wired connections at the same time. Gotta choose which type you want to use. That means I can't print from my laptop wirelessly if I have my PC set up to print from it via ethernet.
I purchased this machine for my home based bookkeeping business. Love the double sided print feature. It is seamless and I have no problems with paper jams. However I find the scanning feature clumsy. Instead of just saving to pdf, naming the file and folder, the scanner makes you have to stop to name the file and folder before hand. For a busy office time matters and it is very annoying and time wasting. I do not find the
Printing as crisp as my old HP. I would have returned it but my it guy took too long to set it up and the time had passed. I am not happy
i want to return, this printed eat up and rips my work, its a nightmare. It doesnt do the job it makes my life harder. I want this defective product out my hands.
BAD PRODUCT & SUPPORT
We purchased this printer,4 months later a a black line started to appear when we use the feeder to copy. Called Brother Customer Support, they asked me to clean the scanner lens. Two days later the same problem came back. Called Brother again, i had to repeat my phone number 6 times , the email address 8 times before the lady got my details correct, informed her the problem she said there is nothing they can do keep cleaning the scanner lens every two days. i pointed out the feeder is depositing some grease on the lens and we have bought a expense printer and cannot keep cleaning the lens every two days she said there is nothing she can do, we asked to speak to the manager they replied he is not here, i asked if he can call me back she said no they don't call back, asked if i can have his name i will call him back there answer no. Requested the number of the head office she was unable to provide me with that as well, she told me the call center was located in Jamaica probably why i have had to repeat my information so many times. The printer is still under warranty and they do not want to to fix the problem and kept threatening me i will have to pay for the repairs, sad when you buy one of there higher end products and they don't want to know.
