Installs a "Brother Creative Center" shortcut on the desktop that's just a link to the Brother website.

Bland, dated design is way behind most modern printers.

1 agrees

Poor print quality--everything comes out looking a bit fuzzy, even plain documents.

1 agrees

USB port is a huge hassle to get to as it's located inside the printer.

1 agrees

Button layout is awkward to use, features a one-line LCD display that's hard to read.
