Summary: Brother's MFC-255CW is a very good color inkjet printer that is a great value at under $100. Like some other Brother all-in-ones I've tried, it has slow print speeds across a wireless network, but it scores high points for print quality--especially photos, which come out looking fantastic. The Brother MFC-255CW all-in-one printer is a lot cheaper than some of Brother's bigger all-in-one printers, but its strong (and weak) points are pretty much the same.
Pros: Excellent print and photo quality, Easy to set up and built-in wireless networking, Low price all-in-one
Cons: Slow print speeds across the network, Long warm-up times
Conclusion: The Brother MFC-255CW lives up to its multifunction ambitions with fast enough copying and printing for daily home office tasks. The inability to accept standard USB drives is a slight drawback of this model, but the easy scanning to PC or memory card can quickly step around that. Results are good in all areas once you step up to the higher print settings, whish speed is maintained at lower qualities for draft printing.
Pros: Good results in all areas, boarderless printing up to A4, easy wireless setup, individual ink tanks easily accessible
Cons: Large footprint, doesn't read or write to USB, single line display makes control a little more fiddly than it could be
