Summary: I've been really pleased with this printer - I've had it for over 4 years in a small but busy office and it has only just died. In that time it has been a workhorse. The A3 scanner really is excellent, and having two trays for A4 and A3 paper makes it really efficient to use (I have a colleague who has a printer with only one tray which he has to reload any time he wants to change the paper size which is more hassle than you'd think).
Summary: Is doing an excellent job. Primarily used for scanning. Is a useful tool, easy to use independently as a copier. Haven't used it for photo-capture but believe that it would do this as well as it scans and prints. The Brother Creative Studio link provides templates for a variety of uses.
Summary: Have just set up this printer and printed out my first picture which was of very high quality. It was very easy to set up the wireless connection. I like the fact it is so compact for what it does, is easy to use (instructions clear with lots of good diagrams) and it looks robust. I have put mine on top of an IKEA set of A2 size drawers on castors as the printer fits on top of it perfectly and it makes it easy to access the paper and store any prints.
Summary: I have for the last 10years used the brilliant HP Deskjet 1120c. When I switched to Macs, it began to mis-behave (probably due to age). I desperately needed something that would print A3 reliably. The fact that this photocopies and scans is an enormous benefit. I have had it for about a month. Reliable, fast and quiet. Well worth the office space it takes up (not small).
Summary: Excellent printer. A3 is quite fast and I agree that the ink lasts for months even with heavy usage. Only slightly odd thing was I could only get it to do A3 scans by programming a customisable button on the CC3 control centre software that comes with it. I just couldn't get it to do it from the machine (could be my ignorance).
Summary: This is a replacement printer as the first one to arrive would not respond to set up and after conversations with technical help at Brother directly they diagnosed a mechanical fault. Fair play to Brother, they immediately said we will organise a replacement, but confirmed later they had no stock, gave me a reference to quote to Amazon, who arranged a very quick response replacement, from Friday to Monday I received the replacement.
Summary: I took a chance on this considering I ordered it sight unseen from Italy based on two things: Cost, I am so amazed that I bought a A3 scanner printer and copier for the price. All of the other A3 scanners I looked at were 3 times the price, and only scanned! Reviews: I read mostly positive reviews and saw a good video review that made me buy.
Summary: I had the printer up and running within half hour of delivery. Print and copying quality is good, and scanning is nice and easy. The set up for multi page scanning on the flat bed uses Paper Port, which came with the machine, and this was also easy to set up. I am very very pleased.
