Having exclusively used HP printers in the past, this is the first time that I have purchased a Brother printer. So far, I am impressed by the build quality; the printer seems very sturdy and I am hopeful that it will last for several years. I particularly like its simple black aesthetic.
The printer was easy to setup on Linux using the "printer-driver-brlaser" package. I was able to print and scan documents over the network within minutes. So far, the printer has worked flawlessly; it sits silently consuming very little power until a print job is received. The print quality is excellent for text documents, however picture quality is not as crisp as an inkjet printer.
Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and the service by CCL computers was excellent as always.
