Couldn't be happier so far

  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Ease of Use:
  • Paper Handling:

Pros:Easy wireless, automatic duplexing, supposed low cost per page, easy setup.

Cons:No scanning direct to USB drive

The Bottom Line: Everything I wanted, does it well, and it's cheap.


Our old Brother MFC gave up the ghost.  Saw this at Costco for $110 ($180 less $70 instant rebate) and purchased it immediately.

Setup was easy: unpack, plug in, install the cartridges, install the duplexer unit.  The printer took a looooong time to set up after the ink was installed, but it finally got through it.  The printer autodetected and joined my (unsecured) home wireless network without a hitch.  Installation of the printer software on my PC (Windows Vista Home) similarly easy, although driver installation also took a long time.

So far, so good.  The control panel on the unit is uncluttered (thank you touchscreen), intuitive and easy.  Print quality is fine for home office use.  Printing and scanning over the wireless network work like a charm.  The duplexer is slow but functional.  The automatic document feeder has not displayed the multi-page grab feature/drawback that many other cheap feeders have.

Haven't tested the fax yet but the fax setup was easy and very helpful (i.e. it would ask you if you have voice mail, and if you answered yes, would default to not turning on the automatic fax answer). 

Two quibbles: you can scan direct from the unit to a memory device - but only to MMC/SD interface!  You can't plug in a USB thumb drive.  Second, the software running on the PC that enables direct scanning from the unit has stopped working twice - not sure why, maybe an intermittent wireless problem.
