Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Large paper bin
This printer can store up to 250 pieces of paper in order to make refilling less of a hassle.
Pro High dpi scans
With a 600x2400 dpi scanner, you can be sure that your documents will come out in very crisp copies, and high resolution files.
Pro Can scan in color
The scanner on the printer scans documents in color. Don't get this confused with printing in color, because this is a monochromatic printer that prints in black and white.
Pro Can fax documents
This printer comes with a built-in document faxing by using the printer's scanner.
Pro Quieter than the competition
This home printer makes sure to keep the noise down as compared to other printers. If you've never owned a laser printer, it may be louder than an inkjet, but it is one of the quietest on the market. Although, some seem to say that this printer is "as quiet as a mouse".
Pro Can be used by mobile devices without an app
Although downloading an extra app to control the printing, this printer functions properly with Apple smart devices and Android's "Google Cloud Printing"
Con Monochromatic printing
This printer can only print in black and white, this is the same for most low-end laser printers.
Con Enters Brother's "Deep Sleep" mode
Brother's printers contain a mode that automatically goes into what it calls "Deep Sleep". Deep Sleep is a mode that was intended to protect against overusing power, but instead ends up causing the user to need to restart the printer by unplugging it and plugging it back in if it goes 50 minutes without use.
