Excellent value for the dollar, great linux support, fast and high-quality printing, network ready (ethernet); built-in print server. This Brother monochrome laser printer is compact and feature-filled. It is incredibly easy to use, produces beautiful, crisp, clear copies, and handles paper perfectly. Time to first print is very fast (few seconds, even from "deep sleep" mode)! The built-in ethernet print server is excellent; worked perfectly the first time each of my Linux machines (Mint, Mandriva, MEPIS, Ubuntu) were connected to it. Linux drivers from Brother are a breeze to find on their web site and install and are available for all features in the printer and for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures and for both RPM and DEB systems. (Outstanding Linux support! Go Brother!!!) Printer has lots of very useful configuration options available directly from the small back-lit LCD on the control panel, which is very easy to use. Goes into stand-by mode within a minute or so after printing, then into sleep, then deep-sleep modes within 3 minutes of printing to save power; NICE FEATURE! The scanner scans in full color, is very fast, and works flawlessly over my LAN. Highly recommend this product to others.
