Summary: I received and returned this printer since the inkjet didn't work properly due to being on the shelf too long. I therefore purchased another Brother printer which works well. I however did like my old MFC-465CN printer which got destroyed in a house fire.
Summary: I wish I could get my hands around the neck of whoever decided to start the practice of NOT including a USB cable with the USB device you buy! You get everything out of the box, make a mess all over the floor, spend an hour setting up the printer, then when the instructions say "plug in the USB cable" you discover they DIDN'T GIVE YOU A STINKING USB CABLE!!.
Summary: This is the perfect multi-function machine for a small household. Ease of set-up and use. Very user friendly. Not big space user. Though I wasn't looking for a fax option I am glad that I got it. You never know when circumstance in life will change and the need arise. I did find the placement for the USB modem connection in wierd place-under the scan bed. I recommend this machine to anyone who has small to moderate need.
Summary: I've had this printer for over a year. It works very well. The built-in networking is a big plus. Print speed is what you'd expect for an inkjet. Print quality is very good. I like having separate color (3) and black cartridges. I've been using non-Brother inks and the quality is still good. The printer is quiet and fits well on the desk in our home office. I use the copy feature once in a while and it works well. The automatic document feeder is a nice feature.
Summary: This little printer is great. I have nine of them running between my home, my office, and my family and friends. It is inexpensive to purchase in the beginning and I have had not maintainance at all. It has great ink usage even with the four cartridge system. I order my ink from ABCInk.com and then recycle them when empty at Staples. It makes the ink "almost" free. As good as the print feature is, I find that I like the scan feature even more.
Summary: I purchased two of these for the multipage scanning only at the office and scanning/printing at home. I use adobe to backup a lot of documents and have found this to work pretty well. It isn't the fastest printer and I find it ridiculous that it will not let you print in black and white if you're out of any color ink. That is very frustrating. The print quality is nice though. I have not tried printing any pictures, only documents both in color and B&W.
Summary: This is the worst printer that I have ever purchased. It is a ink thirsty thief. I didn't know that I was giving Brother stealing rights to my ink supply. I'll never buy another Brother product.
Summary: I have owned a couple of Brother printers like this one. I really like Brother printers because of the ease to refill the ink cartridges. I especially like this one because it has a fax machine and an auto feed paper area on the top. A real bonus is the card reader. It even has a little window so i can view my pictures on the printer before printing. Brother printers are well within in my budget. They are good quality and they are built to last.
