Pros: Very fast print speed, auto document feeder, quiet, works great with Mac OSX Leopard, Vista compatible, separate (and cost effective) drum and toner cartridges, low price.Cons: None, especially at this price.I have this printer connected to my Apple Airport Extreme Gigabit base station and it works like a charm for printing from all of my Windows and Mac machines. Brother has made it extremely easy to install the drivers (and they've even already updated themselves on the Mac), so the enti
re setup was under 5 minutes. I love the fact that I can also use this printer as a standalone photocopier--and cheaply since it's a laser printer. Of course, network scanning would be a plus, but that's not the printer's fault. If I need to scan docs or pictures (rarely would I) then I can just connect it directly to my Mac and use it from there. But 99.9% of the time, I just print documents over the network and make photocopies. Great printer!

So my ~10 year old Xerox copy machine started consistently eating paper. I toyed with the idea of having it repaired until I realized that it would doubtless have cost me more than a brand new machine would cost. And the new machine would be able to do more at a lower cost. Keep in mind that this old Xerox had cost me about $600 10 years ago. So after a great deal of online research I decided that this unit was the way to go. I can't say enough about this wonderful little machine. Let me list so
me of it's wonderful attributes.*It's quite small and doesn't require a lot of real estate.*It's remarkably quiet, even when printing.*Great sleep feature that allows you to leave it on 24/7.*Flawless paper handling from the automatic document feeder and paper supply.*Generous 250 sheet paper supply capacity.*Amazing print quality...razor sharp.*Fast little devil (33ppm IIRC).

This printer works great, prints fast, and makes very little noise. I'm a Mac user and it works fine with my equipment. It also makes good copies. But the scans are inadequate for my needs. I wanted a basic scanner to put old family photos on my blog. This scanner has streaks and doesn't generate smooth gradations of color. Ended up buying a separate, standalone scanner:Canon LiDE100 Color Image Scanner (2923B002)
