It plugged in and played on my apple system. If the claims made for the machine live up to what they say, i’ve got a good buy. I’ll update in a few months of use.
Great printer, though to get the colour right for. Great printer, though to get the colour right for photos you have to tweak the settings in the printer dialogue box and set up some presets to use – go to colour settings and use vivid for some photos- make a preset with advanced sliders, up saturation 3 or 4 points, up contrast 1 and brightness 5. Also in print settings set quality to fine. Then photos look good, though not up to inkjet photo standard. But for brochures, flyers and posters it is excellent. Very low cost to run, especially since it uses 3rd party cartridges. Also duplex is great and works seamlessly without too much slow down – much faster than manual two sided. Set up was easy, usb, ethernet and wireless.
Delivered quickly, easy to set-up, prints fast and clearly. Recommended, but watch for expensive refills.
- Highly Recomended
- Works great with MACs

Sadly my old brother printer died and i did not hesitate to by another brother because i found the old one very reliable and it stood up to a lot of abuse. So far i have found this printer to be great. The quality of print in both colour and black and white even with toner save is very good, having printed some photos i was quite impressed. The page rate is as advertised and the running costs seem to be good too – i can say more when i get through my first set of toners. If it is anything like my last brother i used to do my own toner refills with great ease and saves a fortune. The wireless set up was very easy even with wireless security and using a mac filter on my router. It is also easy to fix the ip address through the built in lcd screen or via the web portal and i did the whole set up without even looking at instructions except to look up the default user name and password. If you familiar with older brother printers then the web portal and options are very similar. I do love the fact that you can create pin protected accounts for different users and limit the use of colour or number of prints.
This printer was a snap to setup with a mac. Once configured the os was automatically updated with the latest drivers for this very model – i was impressed. The printer is setup on the network and was easily reachable by all three of my apple machines – no heroics required.
