When I bought this Brother all-in-one, I expected it to be similar to the other one I have in my office, which actually gets used more than this one. However, the cartridges and drums don't last as third as long as the ones for my other Brother printer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
It is a shame that I cannot come up with four-hundred "characters" with which to describe this set of drums we purchased for our office printer. If I had been able to, Staples would have rewarded me with 5 bonus points!!! So I am forced to reach deep into the abyss of my mind and recall the many papers, essays and long exams, of times gone by, in which I managed to fill page after page with little content and much fluff in order to reach the correct number of pages required. These drums work.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
