Would be good if it worked more often than it jammed
on 9 May 2015
Its ok, but not brilliant. Too many glitches and twists for my liking
Printing, WHEN it comes out, in the right place on the page, is very good, the trouble is, especially when using the manual feed, it rarely does.
It is often printed wonky because it doesn't pull the page in straight.
1 - default Ink setting unnecessarily high 600dpi, when 150 dpi is all that is required, to alter it, you'd need a degree from NASA..
although the lowest DPI is an ink guzzling 300dpi - double what you need.
2 - Toner cartridge has a counter on it, so will show empty even if it isn't (Google videos on how to reset)
3 - Manual feed is grossly inaccurate and doesn't print horizontally. 3a will only take 1 sheet at a time. 3b and only thin 80gsm paper
4 - Following the regular manual feed paper jams, the document then prints from the paper tray, before you can insert another page into the manual feed tray.
4 - Setting up the scanner defaults is almost as difficult as setting the DPI for the printer
5 - when scanning images the brother 'control' centre (should be controlling centre) opens every document in the preview window - It cannot be set to NOT open scans.
