Unless you’re running a lot of printing, never buy a Brother multi-function printer.
You’ll be ripped off and likely end up giving the machine away. (Because nobody will buy it from you.)
The big cheat is in the expensive ink, which Brother machines suck up like soda pop. That means even though you’ve bought a printer/scanner combo, unless you’ve got full ink cartridges in all 4 colours, it won’t scan or do anything you paid for.
Brother printers suck expensive ink and they clean their print heads on a frequent basis, which means they burn up that expensive ink faster as they convert it to expensive steam so you’ll buy more ink sooner.
