Excellent and sturdy workhorse printer. I bought this to replace my 10 + year old brother hl1450 which is still working fine but i needed something faster and with duplex. This is an excellent sturdy machine which practically set itself up once i had connected it to my main pc and it likewise was recognised on the network and the driver downloaded automatically to my laptop. This model is not wireless but if using my ipad i just put the document in dropbox and print from the pc. A joy to use, much faster than the old 14ppm and easy to set it to auto duplex. The machine i bought was a refurbished model and i am very happy with it.
Nice printer, difficult to set up. Good printer, the airprint works well once it is set up, but it is quite tricky to setup. I had to add all sorts of exceptions to my solid state firewall to allow it to connect and the settings weren’t easy to find on the internet. Brother & apple had no guides.
Wonderful price and shipping.
- Does exactly what it says on the tin
- Low cost printing at last
- I don’t actually love it
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Strong and solid, fast with duplex printing mechanism that allows automatic double sided printing. Also supports airprint for network printing from apple devices. This is not a wireless printer but you can use wireless devices with it. Basically, the printer has to be connected to your router with a lead. However, wireless devices – laptops, tablets, phones etc – that connect wirelessly to the same router can use the printer. So it definitely is a network printer.
Very fast, reliable printer. Cheap to run with very high capacity toners. Makes more expensive brands seem a rip off.

No uk plug or english instructions. Don’t know if it’s any good, beacuse i can’t turn it on. It has arrived with an eu plug only, and only french and german instructions (no english instructions), so i can’t work out if i can attach a spare uk cable of my own to get it powered up.
I have had 3 of these printers for my business, had problems with them fairly often.
