Summary: This AIO does the job cheaply and efficiently. And the wireless worked right away. I bought some new ink (insanely cheap here on Amazon!), because it uses a lot. That isn't a terrible thing - how often do you print in yellow? An unused ink cartridge could get all crusty and old and stuff. Best to keep them moving in and out of the machine.
Summary: Just set up this machine today. It was easy. So far it seems the printing of received faxes is slow. Also cannot regulate the sound level of the ring on incoming faxes. It can be managed, though, by lessening the # of rings to 1 or 0. The biggest drawback, though, is the lack of automatic document feed for sending multi-page faxes. What was Brother thinking??? My bad for missing that lack of important feature. Hope my bad helps you in your decision.
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: This is a nice all-in-one system. It was pretty easy to set up on my Mac, and get working wirelessly with my router. The only problem I've had so far is that every so often, it has trouble properly feeding the paper. But the print quality is good, it's nice and small (relatively), and it works well. I'm happy with it.
Summary: And doing it pretty well so far. Haven't gotten around to setting up the wireless networking yet, but otherwise all functions have delivered on initial expectations, with scanning even surpassing them a little. The only real shortcoming is paper handling, but that's my fault as I hadn't adequately evaluated our needs in that area.
Summary: I recently picked up this printer with my Kindle Special Offers code which brought the price down to a very reasonable number. I had been looking at getting a wireless printer over the last year for my wife. My wife is a teacher and is required to use a Mac at work, while we have windows at home. On top of that, the school locked the computer down, so previously she would have to transfer files to a thumb drive and open them on our windows computer to print.
Summary: the printer is great. It's easy to use and easy to install. It's not very heavy. the right side USB outlet is annoying but other than that, I'm satisfied. The only problem is the delivery. It tool 12day to deliver the machine to LA.
Summary: I needed a new printer, after searching I found this one and am very glad I choose it, it is wireless which my old one was not, since I work from home and use a laptop, having a wireless printer was important. It was very easy to set up, So far I have had not problems with it and am very happy I bought it.
Summary: I bought this on sale and so far it has been a great little machine. I debated between the canon pixma and this. What decided me was the cost of ink. (4blk&2colors for $6). I found the installation to be very easy. When using the usb cord it clearly states in the directions that it is inside the machine. It does a good job on photo's and it is nice having the fax.
