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: 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.
Love the printer, but the upkeep and cost of repair is outrageou

Excerpt: I love the printer, but now I am getting and error message that will not allow me to print because some sponge inside the computer needs to be replaced. Of course this cannot be done yourself, you have to call in a technician at an ungodly rate to come and replace the sponge to allow your printer to work again. Unbelievable that you have to call in an expert to fix a stupid sponge for a home office individual printer. Sometimes good, sometimes slightly faded.
Summary: When my old HP inkjet ran out of ink yet again I decided to look for a printer that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to replace the ink. After weeks of looking I chose the Brother MFCJ265w All-in-One inkjet with fax and wireless networking. I wasn't really looking for a WiFi printer but for the price it was an added bonus. Set up was simple... just popped in the installation CD and it was connected to my network in no time.
Summary: Forget the included CD. Get the latest driver package on the Brother website. Download the package but don't install it on your computer until you get the printer synced with your router: 1) Plug in and turn on printer. 2) Load some paper, load each ink cartridge and wait for the 4 minute cleaning process. 3) Press Menu-Network-enable WLAN. 4) Press Menu-Network-Setup Wizard and it will find your router, then you enter your network key/password to complete the sync.
Summary: This is my first printer by Brother. (Previously I used HP printers.) I like having 4 separate ink colors. This way, when I print black it is not draining the color ink cartridges. And most of my printing is black. This brother printer has its own internal computer control for many things. I especially like the fact that aftermarket ink cartridges for Brother printers are inexpensive. Basically I like this MFCJ265W printer.
