So why haven't I given it five stars? Three reasons. The first is that it took the Brother technical support more than an hour on the phone with me to get the printer to work at all. They were prompt. I reported the problem on a Friday afternoon. Monday morning I had a message asking for the serial number. They also gave me instructions for how to get the printer to produce a report. It took a little experimentation to get out of that menu, but the report printed as they said it would. After another message asking for the "complete" serial number, which as far as I could tell was no different than the one I gave the day before, my information was sent to their customer support team. So really, on the third business day, I got called by their tech support people.
The second reason why this rating is only four stars is that after all the time spent to get the printer to work, tech support couldn't get the scanner to work. (I'm not using the fax.) They asked me about my security software, which seemed irrelevant given the fact that viruses, spy-bots, and so on don't seem to have a problem penetrating it.
The third reason is that I had to get a USB A/B cable. There wasn't one in the box. I don't remember seeing anything in the Amazon description that said we needed one. It was fortunate for me that the computer technician was coming into the office because I was able to get one from him. I work out in the countryside, and I don't have a car, and so there would have been even more delays if I couldn't have obtained a cable from him.Read more ›
Only giving it 4 stars as I have a couple of niggles...
1) after every 2-3 print jobs, the display declares that there is a paper jam, even though there isn't one, and I need to go through the motions of opening every flap to "pull the phantom jammed paper out" before it lets me continue.
2) Also, it didn't come with a USB cable so had to buy this separately, although they are pretty inexpensive. I can't seem to scan over wifi (although this may be something I'm doing wrong, but set up felt a bit complicated), so needed the USB cable to let it save the document to my laptop.. anyway, I've got everything set up for my needs so I'm satisfied overall.
I bought this to replace a 2 year Kodak Hero 7.1 whose print quality was deteriorating (horizontal streaks) probably due to a faulty printer head. I bought this product as it got a high rating on the recent Which report (along with the 670) and commented on low cost cartridges/operating costs. This was a big reason for me buying the Kodak and also this product - I got through a cartridge every 6-8 weeks or so before.
Positives: The quality of 'normal' A4 print is very good, and much better than the Kodak. I use this mode daily for around half a dozen or so prints/copies mainly text and about 20% embedded colour imagery. The top-load document feed is a big plus, and something that I didn't have on the Kodak - a lot less fiddly than having to lift the scanner lid every time! I have connected Ethernet wired rather than wireless, and it works no problem via my router/hub.
Overall very happy so far....the proof of the pudding so to speak is to see how it works in 12 months time...hopefully no printer head problems as per the Kodak! And also how much the operating costs are (ink!).
Negatives: I have given 4 stars because the setup was quite lengthy and complex, and I had attempt 3 times before I could get it to work with Windows 7. Also I have connected Ethernet and the cable is quite fiddly to feed into the unit. The Kodak had a connector outside and was a lot easier to connect.
