Summary: Prints and scans great just like every other Brother product I've owned. Trouble is, the latest version of the driver software that's installed by default constantly loses track of the printer. Forget the defaults and connect to the printer directly via the printer's IP (like older Brother software). Brother loses TONS of points for no longer being plug and play.
Summary: I had an HP, but the cartridges were very expensive so I bought this printer. I make my own business cards and DVD covers with pictures on them. The picture quality is not nearly as good on this Brother as it was with my HP, but otherwise it works well.
Summary: I don't understand how this printer got over 3 stars and raving reviews. I was trying to find excuses to like this printer for the last 2 weeks. Getting this thing back into the box, initiating a return, researching/finding another printer, and being without a printer for a couple of days was a dreadful thought...I really tried to find reasons to keep it. The manual feed requires major babysitting (the words "manual feed" is literal).
Summary: Other than one VERY IMPORTANT component, this product has worked very well. When I purchased this $300 printer, I assumed it would have a port for a digital camera card. When we found out there was no such slot for ANY camera card, I decided to send it back. Then the man who installed my printer just happened to have a unit that he fitted into the computer box that allows for both the smaller card (1") as well as the larger(1 3/8")card.
Summary: I was able to luck out on this model for $199 during a Labor Day sale, unfortunately it had to go back. 1st off, the box is HUGE...not terribly heavy (around 53lbs), but the foam inserts make for a very oversized box (29x23x23)...so be ready for that. The machine is solid and appears well built (and large!), smartly packed (no struggle trying to unpack), and installation / setup was quite an easy task. Software & network configuration went without a hitch.
