Summary: I purchased this about 30 days ago, the printer arrived when they said it would, it was packaged very well, no problems there, I have been using it for 30 and so far I'm very happy with the printer. My only complaint is the secondary paper feed, just above the main paper tray jams when I try to print two sided, because the paper curls just a little after first side is printed, it doesn't go through, it says "Jam".
Summary: So far, it's been a great all-in-one for the price. Scan quality isn't as good as I had hoped (even at 300 or 600 dpi) and the auto-feeder scans crooked. Network setup, including FTP drop-box was quick and easy. My only other complaint is that the toner cartridges are fairly small, so this unit is better suited for a home office than a workgroup printer.
Summary: This is much better than my HP inkjet printer as far as the ink lasting. I've printed off loads of coupons with it and haven't had any problems. Yeah, the graphics aren't as good as my inkjet but if you don't need it for anything professional, it's fine. I really like the document feeder to scan/copy multiple pages and the print speed is awesome. Definitely worth the investment! I was buying ink every couple of weeks before I got this.
Summary: Ya its not photo quality color but at the price of those inkjet all in one cartridges this is a home run. I can now print in color without worrying about the cost. The scanning software is very good. I have quite a few computers in the house and I wanted wireless but this one cost half as much as those. The others have black and white lasers. The fix is easy though. You can email the doc/pic back and forth when you need it so all is well.
Summary: UPDATE 8/14/13, Finally had to refill my black (K) toner cartridge. I did not buy new cartridges, just refilled with a toner refill kit. The page count at the point of needing to refill the black was 1850 pages. I am over 2000 pages now and still have not needed to refill the color toner. I will update when I need to refill the color toner.
Summary: I don't print from home very often but when I do, I want my printer to work every time. With inkjets, cartridges were always running out, drying up, or expiring so I rarely got "money's worth." For the price of four sets of cartridges for the HP all-in-one I just retired, I was able to get this Brother all-in-one color laser printer. No more worrying about ink drying up! I tend to do more scanning than printing so the automatic document feeder is a nice touch.
Not wireless and i dont think it has 1 touch scanning

Summary: My mistake. I thought this was a wireless printer when i saw the word networking. It's not wireless, I used a USB cable and it works fine. Everything else works good except I cant find a way to set 1 touch scanning to my PC. Right now i have to push 3 extra buttons than I should have to. I should only have to push scan in color or black and it should scan to my PC. I cant find out how to do this. If someone knows please help me.
Summary: I was getting really tired of inkjet printers which would dry up on you unless you used them constantly, and had picked up a little Brother 2820 laser printer which worked flawlessly no matter how long it sat between jobs, but I needed a wireless printer and I sort of wanted color also. I looked at a lot of machines, and I was repeatedly drawn to the Brother printers.
Summary: Overall, this is a solid color laser printer from Brother. Recently, I decided I needed the ability to occasionally print color from my printer. I previously had a Brother MFC-8840D which was a monochrome workhorse -- but for color, I had an inkjet printer that I would keep in the closet until I needed it.. After months of non-use, color inkjet cartridges dry up, requiring an expensive trip to your local Staples for ink cartridges just to print a few color documents.
