Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colour Problems The colour is not good. We went through support for weeks straight. Brother also sent replacement toner which did not correct the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have only had this printer for a short time. Already, I have a major frustration. This printer replaced my previous Brother MFC9970CDW. On that printer, duplex printing meant that when the print job was done, you could read it like turning pages in a book. With this printer, whether I choose long edge or short edge, the output has to be read like flipping pages in a pad. If you just turn the page, it's upside down. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Machine, Poor Software Machine works great. Software is not working with my Dell Laptop! Have had to reload software 5 times in two months. Always works when first loaded then after a week software becomes corrupted. I believe there is an issue with Dell or third party software. So far, Brother tech support has not been able to address this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Software Problematic The printer it self is great, the operational software, in my case has been problematic. The Brother utility program, "Control Center 4Link" has had to be reloaded onto my computer 5 times since purchase. There is a problem between the Brother Software and some other program my computer is running. Trouble shooting is compounded by Brothers inability to "remote in" to my system meaning I have to linger on the phone for 2 plus hours attempting to troubleshoot the issue. I have done this once already with no luck on fixing the issue. They would like me to try again by phoning in. I should charge them an hourly rate to stay on the phone trying to fix a software issue! There is also sometimes a language issue with out of country techs and me having to state "can you repeat that again please", for the two plus hours I am on the phone with them troubleshooting the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toner Policy: I object This is my second Brother all in one color laser printer. I wanted to love this as much as I loved the first one, which lasted 10 years with no problems at all. But I don't. Every time the printer decides that it no longer can print because it is out of toner, I find myself annoyed. There's no estimate of pages left, just a notice, and then a total stoppage. In the middle of a job. I understand the whole premise behind using OEM parts, particularly toner. It's where the money is. BUT, the software changes that now disallow any reset to the cartridges is enough to send me to another company. The thing is, I only use Brother cartridges. But when I pull the supposedly empty one, and shake it, I can hear a significant amount of toner moving around in the container. What a waste. This is economically unjust and environmentally abhorrent. I'll buy the toners from you, but at least let me use the whole supply. at least give me a hint about how much I have left. The toners are not cheap, and a package of them costs more than the printer itself. You already know that. Shutting me down when I know there is material left is leaving me resentful and inclined to try a different brand. Maybe some other company likes their customers and understands the value of keeping them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not even close to specs I have had this printer for 2 months now, it is loud, slow and uses a lot of toner. Claims 33 ppm, I'm getting 1 after receiving for 15 seconds, then finally prints then says receiving again and takes the same time to print next page. After sending so many docs to print and it taking so long to print each page it just stops printing the jobs, they are in computer print queue, but it seems there is no memory in the printer to queue up jobs in printer memory, thus super slow printing. Quite disappointed, I guess I will go back to HP, much quicker, quieter and lower price per page of output. Brother tech support gets 0 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Office Workhorse I have an in home business and I've gone through so many inkjet color printers. My last inkjet color printer (not a Brother) did the usual and shortly after the warranty expired it failed. My mother is a retired office manager who was also used to having to run her husband's house like a business & she swore by her Brother laser printer. Hers is about 10 years old. She prints about as much as I do (or more) in a year. I have a monochrome laser Oki that is almost 3 years old, so I knew I wanted a color laser printer instead of an inkjet. I've never spent this much on a printer, so I sure hope Mom's right that a Brother will last. I have a MacBook Pro and set up was a bit of a challenge, but Brother's support team helped my through it. Pros: It sounds like a solid machine compared to the inkjet printers I've had. Print quality is great & once it starts printing I cannot complain about speed - it's faster than any color inkjet I've had. Toner is so much more economical than inkjet cartridges. It has lots of features. Not sure I'll need most of them. Cons: It takes a bit from the time I send a print job to the printer before it actually begins to print. I hear the machine wake up, but then it takes a bit before it actually starts printing. I have a monochrome Oki laser printer that wakes up and prints with no pause from when it wakes up until it begins to print. It's big! You've got to have room for this beast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good general office printer but duplex is slow, The print quality is excellent. I scan and print over Wi-Fi with no issue at all. The only complaint that I have is the amount of time it takes for a duplex print which seems to take much longer than other printers that I have used for duplex printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the machine if you need speed. The printer is very quiet, however it’s sprinting speed leaves much to be desired. The MFC9560 was a far better machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good decission! Best machine I ever bought. Previouly i used HP always and after three years they needed replacing. The last couldnt find the WiFi, even when the router was nx to it. You get what you pay for. Hoohed it up using IP address, can print to it from anywhere. Should last a long time. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, I am pleased. I searched a long time to replace my HP MFC and I decided to try out the Brother. I have been a long time users of HP, but their quality just isn't there anymore. It was very similar to the HP with important distinctions. First, the platen can hold legal size documents, and I don't think I would be locked into using OEM toner cartridges. I would've given it five stars, but the instructions/manuals, or lack thereof, leave a little to be desired.
