Our printer finally came a couple days ago. We were expecting it sometime next week, so we got it earlier than the later they said. My wonderful husband setup the printer, and it did take some time. It wasn’t as easy as my old HP printers, as there are a lot more features with this one.
It was on sale at Costco for $90 +tax. It turned out good and had good reviews by most people. What is important is durability and that the ink cartridges don’t cost an arm and a leg. Most of the reviews that talked about ink said the cartridges were very inexpensive.
This Brother does fax, copy, scans, and prints duplex! I really love the duplex printing as that saves paper. My HP did do duplex printing, sort of, if you flip the paper over and sent your pages in the manner that it could do it (basically, if I had more than 1 page duplexed, I didn’t do it because I could never get the numbering of which went when correctly and ended up wasting paper each time . . . more than if I had done 1 sided.).
I am keeping one of the HP printers for just in case, but donating the other printer and fax machine. So, this one machine replaces 2. My kids are excited that it can copy. It also prints color.
This is my first new printer ever. Both printers I had and the fax machine were used when I got them.
It’s not really a super speedy printer, so we’ll have to see when I need a lot of pages printed, if I don’t like that. It’s a nice, sleek black machine and is sitting where the fax machine was, so it is out of the way of where my husband’s desk area is and mine. It’s in a neutral area so the kids can get to it without bothering us, but we can still see what they are printing, so they cannot get out of control with printing.
Thank you, God!
I’m also glad for reviews people write on Costco.com and on Amazon. I poured through LOTS of reviews of about a half dozen printers between Brother and HP. Though I hate HP computers and laptops, I do like HP printers. I feel they make great printers.
Originally I was planning on paying around $150 +tax for a printer, so I’m ecstatic I paid about $95, total, which is probably a $65 savings. I also love Costco as I know if anything goes wrong, they will make good on it without any questions asked.
