Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Customer Service is the best ! I have been Brother customer for many years having purchased different models in the past to be used in our small legal practice. This last Printer is a bit noisier then previous one but it's faster and it's wireless so its a great value for money if you wish black and white printer solution. We also have a small colour printer for occasional use but this was much cheaper solution then having a big printer in colour that required changing all cartages which was very costly. Most importantly, the customer service is absolutely superb! Well done to Brother customer service team, I will always remain a loyal customer thanks to their service. They even though me how to change the drum over the phone! Highly recommended company and the product!
