As a scanner, the device, as with other Brother MFC devices, but only tolerable. Rasterized originals create unsightly streaks, and high-resolution scanning takes extra time compared to other scanners. Also gradations in the white and black areas are swallowed. The latter seems to be normal in the field of multifunction devices. Anyway, in the typical Bussinessbereich the device works well and fast. Copying or scanning from a stack of paper is surprisingly fast and of good quality. Without any problems even 8 pages can be read on a double-sided sheet of paper.
Although it sounds a bit critical, I'm very happy with my purchase. It is a great office device. For graphics applications, the scanner is less recommended. But that is not the focus of such a multifunction device. The original toner cartridge was now empty. So I just ordered the cheapest Ebay dealer (Trensco GmbH / "Ink Discount") 2 spare cartridges TN 3380 for 8000 pages for 33,80 € including shipping. I thought laser toner, unlike ink, can not do much wrong. But puff pie. Right off the first few pages it turned out that the recycling of the residual toner in these cartridges does not work properly. The result is falling toner in the device and thus contaminated with residual toner printouts. When I complained about this 2 spare cartridges were delivered to me. But they had the same problem. (I'm totally unclear how to sell products that clearly can not work properly!) Finally, I was refunded my payment. I sucked the printer. And the trusted toner dealer I used to buy toner for my old printer, since I had found nothing suitable in his shop. (Cartridge Star East, just googling and calling.) Because this had originally advised me to a Brother printer. For him, the single TN3380 alternative cartridge cost 25 € including shipping, but this works fine. The prints are clean again, as is the device.
Only a small weakness I could notice: If I print stickers, the printing is generally a bit slower, because the thicker paper has to be heated a little longer to fix the toner on the paper. Apparently that is not quite enough. Because with the alternative toner it comes with strong rubbing on the expression at individual points rather a smear, as the original toner. That does not have strong proportions. It's just the only difference I've seen so far on close observation. We print a lot of package stickers every day which can all be used without problems. Also ordered the same for € 19.90 500g toner powder for self-refilling, which should be enough for 2x 8000 pages. Instructions are available on Youtube under the cartridge name. All in all, I can still recommend the printer - with the right alternative toner - so much.
