4.0 out of 5 stars Superb printer for the small office
I run a small but busy office, and we needed an all-in-one that was a good step up from the typical cheap £200 ones. For the money I'd say this is superb - the ability to laser-print in colour, and double sided, is fantastic for any small business wanting to produce marketing materials, or to print (as I do) proofs of brochures and fliers. Rather than write yet another...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good price for a machine with terrible toner issues
Among the many buyers lured to this machine for its attractive price-performance ratio, I have come to regret buying this junk for the awful toner issues and service level:
a) constant leakages with toner dust
b) ridiculous "cartridge sensor" technology not allowing to reinsert half-full cartridges and just now even giving error messages with brand-new, sealed...

This review is from: Brother MFC-9970CDW A4 Colour Laser Multifunction (Print/Scan/Copy/Fax) with Wireless and Auto Duplex (Accessory)
I run a small but busy office, and we needed an all-in-one that was a good step up from the typical cheap £200 ones. For the money I'd say this is superb - the ability to laser-print in colour, and double sided, is fantastic for any small business wanting to produce marketing materials, or to print (as I do) proofs of brochures and fliers. Rather than write yet another long review extolling the virtues of this excellent all-in-one, I will just point out a couple of niggles: like most printers, the toner carts are flagged up as being ready for change when they still have plenty of life in them - there is an override sequence (easy to find the instructions on the internet) but the success rate of getting into the reset screen is not great, i.e. sometimes it works easily and sometimes you have to try it several times before it works. Second, please be warned that you won't get the high photo-quality printing of an inkjet, so don't buy this to print your family snaps out fast, or thinking you can product high quality glossy fliers. For very fast b/w or colour printing, including double-sided, faxing and scanning, it is superb and the 'proper' copying sheet feeder is a great bonus. Well worth the money. Final tip: don't buy the original toner carts - those made by others available on Amazon work very well, and will save you a fortune.

Among the many buyers lured to this machine for its attractive price-performance ratio, I have come to regret buying this junk for the awful toner issues and service level:
a) constant leakages with toner dust
b) ridiculous "cartridge sensor" technology not allowing to reinsert half-full cartridges and just now even giving error messages with brand-new, sealed cartridges
c) service team taking up days to drop in and fix the mess
Heed my advice: Stay clear of this brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brother MFC-9970CDW, 21 May 2012

This review is from: Brother MFC-9970CDW A4 Colour Laser Multifunction (Print/Scan/Copy/Fax) with Wireless and Auto Duplex (Accessory)
We have been looking to replace our existing 5 year old network printer for something smaller and this fits the bill perfectly. Too soon to tell what ongoing toner costs will be, but so far so good.
