Summary: For all them stars above 1 . U must b some lucky suckers! This piece of crap,ink drinking pig lying sack of crap,jammin piece of junk is as worthless as the tits on a boar. When I get a new one watch over your roof u may see it in orbit!
Summary: It could be your worst nightmare when you need it the most. * it doesn't print/scan/copy if any of the 4 color cartidges has low * cartidge is expensive (black one costs $25), maxium 40 pages or less and whenever you will turn your printer on, it will use good amount of inks to clean the nozzle. So keep buying cartidges... Or you can throw into bin.
Summary: I hate this machine. I was absolutely robbed by Brother with all of this machine's seductive features, but will NEVER buy another Brother product. This thing blows thru ink like it should be in rehab and does not perform ANY function without every color of ink cartridge being full...even if you just want to scan or print in black or white. Piece of shite!
Summary: The other reviewers are spot on. This is by far the worst printer with which I've had to deal and unfortunately, I bought not one but TWO for both my home offices. The ink ran out about the same time and for the life of me I cannot figure out why it won't read the replaced ink catridges. Both machines are having this difficulty and I find it suspect that it's the same problem. Brother created a monster when they put this machine on the market.
Summary: I have had this multi-function printer since migrating to Windows 7. I was mad at the time at HP, and now I seriously regret the decision to try a lesser brand. It required HOURS to get the wireless connection to work the first time, and any little hiccup in my wifi network required still more hours of troubleshooting to get it working again. I just replaced the yellow ink for the second time, and suddenly the black doesn't want to print.
I donated money to Brother. This printer is a scam

Summary: Brother took my money and the only thing I got was a valuable lesson. Had to return MFC once because the scanner stopped working. Now it has just turned into a black hole for money, ink, and time. The entire machine stops working if it THINKS one printer color is empty. (Sometimes it thinks that and it is wrong) I will never, EVER buy another Brother product. I can't wait to throw this thing in the garbage and get some satisfaction for what I have invested.
Sent to Earth by Satan, to cause strife and misery

Summary: Cons: This machine is made of plastic, tears of stillborn babies, the hatred from condemed criminals, some metal, and the combined madness of a buring lunatic asylum. It has been sent here to Earth, to hasten the apocolypse. It starts off working fine. It has good print quality, you can print wirelessly, and do many functions, but that is how the Devil lures you in...with false hope based on nothing but lies.
Summary: Do not buy this printer or any other brother machines! All it does is give you pedo and never works. Time after time i would have to call customer service and get it fixed but after a month or two it would not work again. I got so fed up con esta madre that i just finally left it abandoned at a recycling place. I ended up buy a canon printer and works like a charm. Couldnt love it anyore! Take it from me, if you buy any brother machine buy extended warranty!
Summary: Less than a year after buying the mfc-255cw, it had the following issues: -wireless connection never worked, even after multiple attempts to connect; -used a lot of (expensive) ink for not so many prints/copies; -machine would not operate until you bought and replaced ink cartridges; -last straw was that it would not correctly print anything in black...in spite of multiple cleanings and replacement of the black ink cartridge.
