Summary: Just over one year from purchase this is going to the recycling centre. The actual print quality was ok (only reason it gets two stars) but always had a problem with scanning (not recognised by brother software) and staying on any wireless network, meaning it had to be re-configured every time or use usb. Last straw is full ink cartridges now not recognised by software either, so cannot even print. What rubbish!
Summary: I bought this model a few years ago and it's perfect for what I need. I don't print every day, but when I do, it's often 20 to 50 pages, colour and black & white. That printer is a real little trooper.It prints very well, text and images are crisp, and you have the choice between two settings, normal or vivid colours, normal to save your ink, vivid when you want to produce vibrant images. It's light and small, fits perfectly on a cabinet or even on your desk.
Better to get your stuff printed-off at a comercial print shop

Summary: I brought one of these printers as Brother offers printer drivers for other operating systems besides Windows (ie. Linux), after my previous printer (a Canon) died due to an inbuilt life-limiter (ink overflow pad). I had no problem getting the computer to communicate with the printer. However it seems I only have to print a few pages before either the print fades or the printer reports it needs one of its 4 ink cartridges replacing.
Excerpt: ~*~The Product ~ ‘Reading the fine print’!~*~ This inkjet black printer has an impressive memory capacity of 32MB. The machines dimensions of height 150mm x width 390mm x length 368mm (360mm base/450mm with copy ledge protruding) is a large but compact enough size to fit comfortable on my unit. The printer is a hefty enough 6.8 kg in weight but as I do not move the machine from its position, this isn’t a problem.
Pros: Memory card slots for SD cards and Memory stick . Wi - Fi . Practical features, 12mth warrenty .
Cons: Disappointing print and speed quality on certain documents . Higher running cost .
A more modest/basic combination printer. Very reasonably priced machine.

Summary: I had been a loyal user of HP printers for years but eventually got fed up when my last one consistently rejected non OEM cartridges from reliable suppliers. The Brother appears happy to work with these and has done a good job of printing everything I've asked it to do so far. The cartridges are far cheaper than HP, and, being separate for each colour, do not require you to ditch the colour cart. just because one colour is exhausted.
Excerpt: For many years now I have been a loyal HP customer when it comes to printers. I have bought HP printers and genuine print cartridges, spending what can only be described as a small fortune on HP branded items over the years. I even reviewed HP printer cartridges for Ciao using a printer Ciao very kindly allowed me to keep and held the print quality offered by genuine HP cartridges in high regard.
Pros: Fairly cheap to buy, relatively inexpensive ink and longevity of ink, good quality of print
Cons: A bit cheap looking, no USB flash drive slot
A compact and effective all in one printer from Brother

Excerpt: For many years now I have been a loyal HP customer when it comes to printers. I have bought HP printers and genuine print cartridges, spending what can only be described as a small fortune on HP branded items over the years. Sadly my love affair with HP came to an abrupt end this year when in the space of 2 months I experienced printer failure in three different HP machines.
Summary: Denna skrivare från Brother är en riktigt bra maskin . Har haft den i snart 3 år och aldrig haft problem med den. Enkel att installera, kör den trådlöst mot hemmets två bärbara datorer och Ipad. Funkar fint att skriva ut och scanna både från datorn och på enheten. Ska man säga något negativt så är det väl att den saknar inmatning för flera dokument vid inscanning.
