I love the workhorse aspect of the machine and the fact that it is extremely low maintenance. Because I am very unsuccessful at marketing, I am putting my machine up for sale. Marketing aside however, this machine is the one I chose after months of research because it is the most reliable machine, requires the least maintenance and has the Brother name. I also own a commercial Brother embroidery machine and have had no problems from either product. They have a good name and for a reason. I vote for the Brother GT-541.

Got mine GT-541 just a couple of hours ago. I tested all major brands (DTG, AnaJet, MS, Kornit, Fast, Polyprint, Gröner Rainbow, etc.) prior to my buying decision.

After all I've seen the Brother seems to be the best machine to earn money with, hassle free and no headache.

I got a refurb with 18.000 prints done for a very good price with a one year warranty from a Brother dealer.

After a few test prints I can confirm, these machine really is plug and print with amazing results.

I wanted the white ink option too, but I personally think it is not mature enough to go with.

Best machine ever bought, next to Epson 7800 : )

45k print and never a single issue in 3 years and clean it once a month how can you go wrong with that

It was not released. They had it sitting on a stand showing it off.



It was literally roped off. You could not get within 12' of it.

They had 5 Brother Techs standing between the rope and the machine
1 security guard standing on the outside of the roped off area

It is expected out early next year.

Looks like it will be like the 541 but with white ink.

Anajet's new printer is fast

We where at the nbm show in long beach and the brother is our hands down favorite and the hat platten is awsome. the rep at the show told us our local brother dealer will be carrying the machine in November so we put off the purchace till then. figure they sold me 3 machines this year pr-1000 pr 650 and a innovis 1250d so I will let them sell me number 4. And a dealer 45 minutes away with great service there really is no other brand we would buy

The quality of print 600dpi vs 1440 is my big question for switching. I print on a 1900 epson based 1440dpi right now and looking at going only white shirt prints at 600dpi. Am I going to be pleased with results or will it have a huge impact on image quality. I print mostly 300dpi images that are full color and sometimes are photographic images?
