Summary: So far, so good with this printer. The only thing that I have not set up yet is the option to scan multiple pages at the same time. The after-market ink cartridges are VERY affordable in comparison to some others.
Summary: Ok, so I am a small business owner who has been using HP multi-function color printers for more than 10 years. Why? Because of their reputation for quality. The last HP multi-function color printer finally forced me to look elsewhere for our color business printing, copying, and faxing needs. The HP family of printers are great. The quality of the printouts is very good BUT the cost of the ink was really a drawback.
Summary: I needed a MF printer/scanner/copier for my home office and kids school projects. My biggest beef with HP, Canon, etc. is their high priced ink. Refilling has never worked well for me and I just didn't want to hassle with it. The Brother delivers low cost MFC, low cost ink, wireless was easy set up, updates are easy, print outs are excellent and fast enough for my low level volume. Kids are able to print while doing their school projects on laptops throughout the house.
Summary: This is a large printer. It was an easy 30 minute setup to unpack, connect it to my wireless network, load the ink cartridges and paper. Then 5 minutes each to install the drivers (on my windows XP pcs and one Mac), and everything was able to print first try. Print quality for text is good, for pictures just okay. I won't use this to print out images much so that's okay for me. Menu is easy to figure out how to copy, scan, etc.
Summary: I bought this right before new year's when there was a promotion. Copy function, as expected, is easy and straightforward with little setup. For fax, I set it to telephone answering device mode. Then came the printer. First I set it up for wired Ethernet using a static IP address. Then I tried WiFi, using the manual method to enter the wireless network information.
Summary: I've had a bad string of luck with printers in the last couple of years. I got this model at Office Depot for 59.99 on clearance(reg. 149.99). Because it was a floor model, it came without an installation disk or user guide, so I was expecting it to be a hassle to install. I downloaded the installation from the website and had it up and going within 20 minutes. It is by far the most user friendly printer I have ever owned.
Summary: I have at least two operating printers at all times for my small home business. In the past, they have been mostly Epson's. About six months ago, I saw this Bother on sale at Staple's and bought it. I hate to call anything perfect, but it is! This is the perfect small business printer--prints great b/w pages quickly. Does a great job of making copies, too and scans flawlessly. I didn't realize until today that it will print index prints from a flash card, but it does!
Summary: I bought this printer to replace our all-in-one HP printer in our home. It was easy to set up wirelessly and sync with my computer. I've been very satisfied with all of it's printing capabilities (we print a lot of homeschool/craft papers).
