I've checked the Staples website and it does not appear - however, i have seen the printer at this price in two Staples stores near me.

Very good printer/scanner/copier.
Gets great reviews.
Wireless!
Very cheap cartridges.

Only £49!

This printer is £188 on Amazon and the cheapest i can find it anywhere else is about £110.

Wow, the deal sounds really good. I really like it because its wireless. But I'm gonna have to pass because I have too many printers in my house.

I saw this last week in the Glasgow branch, but the reviews I found said it was painfully slow printing normal text pages. Do you have links to the reviews you saw as if the printing is up to scratch then I'll be buying one as it has everything I need on it for my home network and cheap refills!

Cheers,

B.

24 Mins to print a few pages!!!! Sod that!

Yeah, Barneydog those were the kind of reviews I found when I checked last week and they really put me off buying it. Would rather spend another £20 and get one that can chuck out some text pages at a decent rate. A real shame as it sounds great on paper, but in use it sounds like it's slower than a week in the jail!
#6
Its a great little printer but give it anything more than a few b&w pages to do and it takes its time. Works a dream on wireless though - so worth it if you're not a high capacity user but like the idea of a bit of freedom.
#7
So, If I understand this correctly.....as long as you don't want to print....this is a great little machine...., go on then, I'll vote it hot!

I agree, it's not for me either - but it's a great price for this particular printer and I will vote it hot for the reasons dblake mentions below

Did you actually read what he said? If you don't want to print high volumes it's great.

Ok it may not be for you, but there may be someone who it is for - voting hot.

Free 3 Year onsite Warranty available on this model. Buy it and then register for the warranty at Brother. Enter EM0002 as the code. Or you can choose a free handheld label printer or 256mb Flash drive instead of the onsite warranty.

Compatable consumables are dirt cheap for Brother printers. Ive had two. Yes they are not the fastest but I print out about 100 sheets of A4 text per day and mine has been faultless. No slower than the HP all in one I had before and so much cheaper to run. No paper jams either. Photo printing is slow but then how many of us need a photo printed off quickly?

Important things to note with this printer... this is mainly for the people above who are criticizing it!

1. I've read many reviews of this printer and the only real complaint is the speed if you print large docs... how many of us regularly print out scores of pages? This printer is for home use, most of us want to print out things like vouchers, receipts, map directions etc and would never ever notice a problem with the speed.

2. The reviews are based on the RRP of this printer which is well over £150 i think, so the criticisms are against printers in this price bracket. This deal is offering the printer at just shy of £50 - a snip.

3. It's wireless - where else can you get a decent wireless all-in-one for this kind of price.

It's a good deal. I've got one of these and it's a good printer - specially for this price. And cartridges are £2.99!!

Kinda puts it all into perspective.....:thumbsup:

I got one of these last year(£60 with voucher), USB, network cable or wireless connection so all bases covered, It does seem a bit slower to get started now I have gone wireless but being able to print from the laptop and put the printer anywhere is great.

Also good as a standalone copier with sheet feeder, also if set up properly will scan to files from the front panel if PC is on, has card interface on the front for photos.

I use a cheap samsung laser for the bulk B/W stuff,

One thing to watch with the brothers, if left on they do automated cleaning cycles, this will keep the heads clear but does use ink,

At £50 its a good price if the features are what you need.
#16
Aah, so is the slow printing of large documents due to the buffer slowing the process down? So, if you print out a smallish document, say 10 pages or less does how long would you say it takes on normal mode? How grey is the draft mode that they spoke about in the reviews? We have an Epson DX3800 at work that in draft looks very greyed out, yet my old HP 940C at home prints fast in draft and fairly dark.

I did note that the reviews were saying it was a bit expensive for that price bracket which it was, but if the problems are actually fairly minor then I might reconsider it. Wireless for that price is good and the cartridges are cheap without a doubt.

I went to buy one from Staples Luton this weekend but I didn't buy because the salesman told me it takes five catridges at £8.99 each.

I checked the cartridge prices on eBay now and they're dirt cheap so I'm gonna go back again and buy one. Better than buying cartridges for my existing printer for £30 + I get the wireless functionality, which I was going to buy a printer-server to get.

Hopefully they still have it as they only had one in stock when I was there.
#18
I have one I find it excellent. I connect wirelessly to my iMac, can't comment on speed of printing as my only previous experience is using mono lasers and obviously they are faster. I don't find it slow. Output quality is excellent.

Great saleperson!!! LOL

I think this is hot too. I have a Samsung laserjet printer linked to a wireless print server. Obviously if speed is an issue for you then this is the way to go! I did it for £75 (but I was lucky).

I think this brother seems the next best option.

Look here for cartridges, highly recommended.

Look - our price includes VAT and FREE 1st Class Post Multipack of Compatible Brother LC900 ink tanks (cyan magenta yellow and black).


Price: £6.98 (Including: V.A.T. at 17.5%)

This printer is excellent, I have one at home and one at work. Set of FOUR compatibles is £6.98 (see above) and packs of 10 are even cheaper.

Are there any Staples vouchers about? I'll get another 2 for our new offices at work.

My local Staples (Norwich) have none. Anyone know of any close by who have some?
