Jeff said:I've had no out of the box failures buying that exact model as a
refurbished printer. I think I've resold about 8 of those printers so
far. The regular price is $169 instead of $129. You're going to have
difficulty finding a different AOI laser printer at the same price. ...
The 7460 was available at $129 and then .. poof .. sold out in minutes
while I was reading something in its PDF manual. Later it showed up for
$169. The 7360 is $129 (or at least was a few hours ago) on Amazon but
no duplex printing.
far as I can tell, the only difference between refurb and regular is
the length of the warranty. As far as I can tell, the printers have
never been out of the box or used.
I really want that one year warranty because then my credit card pops
that up to two years.
The only problems I've had with refurbished Brother printers was with
this color laser:
There are some really flimsy parts on the toner carts, which I think
got mangled during manufacture. I had to buy a replacement yellow
cart (4 colors for about $60). However, I don't recommend this
printer because the print quality was marginal the 3 printers that
Good luck. If Windoze, make a backup of the registry before
proceeding. If it's HP printer software, make several backups.
Thanks. Since the 7460 went out of stock within minutes and then later
popped up $40 I ordered a Canon MF4890dw for $190. Its user interface
and SW seems to be a bit on the clumsy side. AFAIU you have to walk over
to the printer and switch it to scan, then scan, walk over again and
switch to normal mode. Oh well, good exercise to get out of the chair.
Toner is more costly but I am hoping for a little better quality. What
really sold me on it was the duplex intake for the scan/copy sheet
feeder. I had a Canon copier in the 90's and it was super quality.
The Brother MFC-7820N was good to me but did have occasional issues
after power failures and also a few paper jams on the intake side.
