The top few problems which a Brother printer is notorious for are its unreliability, short life, printing errors and paper jams. Certain printer models produced by Brother have seen to last only a few months, say two or three months.

Very often a paper is jammed in the mid way. Dealing with the paper jams is next to impossible. If one tries to remove it, it often results in the breaking of fuser.

Getting the machine replaced with another piece results in the same flaws.

It is absolutely useless for graphics, pictures, heavy stock and envelopes. The physical parts of the printer like its top cover are not strong enough.

A brother printer produces curled, twisted and warped papers. It does not align the paper automatically. One has to take great care while inserting the paper so that it is properly aligned.

Brother technical support is not very helpful for people trying to have their faulty machine work, fixed or exchanged. The user manual, too, does not contain adequate information to guide the users. Often, the design is so defective that the tray size does not match with that of a standard A4 size sheet and the cartridge is too hard to be taken out. The printer does not carry a cable when purchased. A Brother printer never lasts more than a year. The type of problem depends on the model.
