Summary: The printer was a very good buy for the money. It worked well right out of the box. I have had Brothers printers for over ten years and I have had extremely good luck and I do not think that this printer will be any different.
Summary: Purchased this printer and received it very quickly. Ink very easy to load and very inexpensive. Setup and changing use is not intuitive. Continued to have problems recieving and sending faxes. Paper loading wasn't the best nor can you load much paper at one time. The final last straw was it failed in June 2012. Tried problem solving based on the messages received. Spent well over one hour, gave up and called them.
Summary: I have had this fancy printer for 1 year for my personal home use; it is a wireless printer, but very hard process to be installed, I finally connected it by usb cord. Very expensive ink which doesn't last enough. Hard time for alignment. Sorry but don't buy it please.
Summary: Bought this last July so I've had it for a little less than a year. I mainly got it so that I could send faxes for my job. In the time I've had the machine, I've printed less than 50 documents, yet the ink is supposedly gone. Every time I turned the machine on (maybe once or twice a week because I quickly tired of the "auto-clean" function) the ink levels would drop slightly. The last time I printed something, each ink cartridge was around 1/8 full.
Summary: I got tired of paying for expensive ink cartridges on my old printer. Did lots and lots of serching for a good all in one that you could get cheap ink for.I have had it now for over one year,great printer. I use it just for printing, and scanning I would buy anotherone when this one dies,if they are still making it.I have bought ink cartidges from different sources,all the cartidges have worked great.
Summary: Brother sells a variety of printers that are very similar in capability and use the LC61 ink cartridge, which can be bought for under a dollar each in case lots. Its small, quiet, wireless, produces decent print quality for text and pictures, and its dirt cheap to operate. Four color cartridges can be replaced individually and at the replacement price its a no brainer.
Summary: I bought this printer because I have been very impressed with the Brother printer I used for nearly a decade (MFC-8440). This printer worked great for about 5 months. The replacement ink cartridges were extremely affordable. The print quality is terrific. Brother makes great products. This unfortunately isn't one of them, which is probably why it is no longer offered.
Summary: After owning the Brother MFC J265W for 9 months now, I can safely conclude that the inability for this printer to execute a print job without a paper jam Renders it USELESS AS A PRINTER. I am using 20# paper, the most widely recommended weight paper for a home printer. There is no reason to touch on the other aspects of this ''All-in-One'' if it can not handle the task of a Printer. MOVE ON. Look elsewhere, this unit not worthy of consideration.
