That sounds nice, although I haven't been impressed with Brother.  The 
good news is I've been able to keep them running.  The bad news is it's 
harder than it should be (replacing the fuser requires taking the whole 
thing apart, but you can get a new fuser and directions).  But that's in 
an office environment so maybe not as big a deal at home.
