works well though consumables are not cheap
Our small office has run this machine for a couple of years. Consumer estimates the running cost of this printer at about double the slightly cheaper to buy MFC-L2700DW . Since both printers use exactly the same consumables (drum & toner) it seems likely this is incorrect. Suspect both machines cost the same to run.
Brother says the cost per page at Nov 2014 (B/W) was 5.4c
We changed to a Brother MFC-L9550CDW colour laser (about $1,500 to buy) but only 1.4 cents per B&W page to print - and can print colour when needed
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
