The Pros:Ink cartridges are pretty cheap for this model, resulting in lower-than-average cost per page. Two-year warranty is double what is usually found with home printers.
The Cons:Bland, dated design is way behind most modern printers. Button layout is awkward to use, features a one-line LCD display that's hard to read. USB port is a huge hassle to get to as it's located inside the printer.

Installs a "Brother Creative Center" shortcut on the desktop that's just a link to the Brother website.
Much slower print speed than advertised with colour and document printing.
Poor print quality--everything comes out looking a bit fuzzy, even plain documents.
