Product Reviews
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 48reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good printer with small footprint Wireless drivers are not totally compatible with iMac using El Capitan so I connected via USB and no problem. I can't use phone app, but not really necessary so I'm good.Printer is fairly quiet and quick. Touch screen is very intuitive.Wireless connectivity problem aside, I am pleased with the purchase. October 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Piece of Junk Always offline can't get it to print anything or fax. BIG MISTAKE October 8, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Washed out colors The colors are not vibrant and they look washed out. Scans well and easy set up. October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great options Great product and very easy to use. I've used Brother copiers before. October 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by reliable and inexpensive in use Text quality is good. Copying quality is not colour-accurate but acceptable. Setup was easy on both MAC and Windows systems. Paper handling for two-sided printing has been good, and the ADF works well. Much more reliable thatn the EPSON Workforce it replaced. October 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Printer, needs more paper space The printer works great from our company but, we would like to see a larger paper tray as it does not hold enough paper for day to day tasks. October 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Home Office This all purpose printer was a great up grade from our previous Brother all purpose printers. It is compact, easy to use and the quality and speed are very good. October 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally breaking away from HP I chose the Brother printer because I'm tired of the short printer life and thirst for ink of the many HP printers I've owned over the years. So far I'm very impressed with the features, print quality, ease of use, and helpful display of the Brother. September 28, 2016
