Hey all,

Anyone have any experience with Brother laser printers? My friends have one in their dorm room and I use it all the time for printing. Very reliable and fast, it seems like...

They are apparently Mac compatible, but I haven't heard much about this company. Are the OS X drivers good (assuming they exist)?

I'm sick of HP, they are so bloated now. And Brother has a model for $149 which is right here.

I'm a printer noob, I have no idea what difference there is between 8MB/16MB cache, etc.

I have a brother 1440 hooked up to a g3 imac and it works just fine
I also have it set up to print wirelessly from my computer down stairs. It was very easy to set up and has given me no problems

I believe the bigger the cache is on it the faster it will be able to load and print bigger documents but i'm not complety sure

My laser Brother all-in-one works really well. It's passes the wireless Airport Express test flawlessly meaning I can print from my laptop from anywhere in my house. :)

I can't get the scanner part to work very well though, whether the connection is cabled or wireless. :(
