Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer, excellent value for money We needed a good quality colour printer for a busy office. There were no reviews for this printer so we made the purchase based on what the product information said in terms of quality and print speed. The £249 price tag was also great. We are delighted with the printer and found set up extremely easy. Print quality is very high and print speed superb. Very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colour laser printer, good but not wireless!! 2nd Brother printer purchased, this being the dearer of the two. Was disappointed though, when we discovered it was not wireless , when setting it up, especially when full price should have been £250! The first printer was also a Brother Colour Laser but was wireless and cost less. You just presume that the dearer the item, it would be wireless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a big begger. I've been looking at colour laser printers for quite a while - I normally buy HP units, but when this Brother came up at 2/3s the cost of an equivalent, fully featured with network, colour and auto-duplex, I thought Id have to give it a bash. Plus, the consumables being far cheaper than equivalents, and refillable too, it seems like a bargain. It prints quickly and reliably so far and has a good quality. One tip is that its heavy, and best carried by two people, or have it delivered to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Fantastic printer, managed to print 100 envelopes in 1/4 of the time of my old relatively fast inkjet printer. By no means is this perfect - you'll not get the same results as a inkjet for colours if you need high quality prints, but it's a completely different type of printing. Really happy with it, was easy to setup on the network and works perfectly with a variety of operating systems on my network.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, good colour quality I originally bought this model a year ago and it recently got zapped during a powerful lightning strike. I liked the printer so much that I bought the same model to replace the original. The colour quality is great. Also, fast duplex printing. The pull out feeder works well for other types of paper and envelopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small office printer at a living room printer price Brilliant printer with duplex (double sided) functionality. Great paper handling with paper tray in body of printer. Fast first page and very fast multiple pages. Good choice of high capacity toner cartridges. Shop around for deals including replacement spare toner cartridges.
