Summary: It's a printer and it prints fine. There's nothing special about it. Keep in mind that it occasionally takes in 2 sheets of paper at once and screws up your double sided printing. Uses 3rd party ink fine. Colors are acceptable. If you need a printer then here you go. It works fine for letters and such. Nothing special here. PS: I got it for $60 and I don't recommend paying over $70.
Very easy wireless setup, simple driver setup, accepts generic ink cartridges, overall good value

Summary: For those that have complained about this being hard to setup ( in particular the wireless) - read the very short manual. This was a piece of cake in comparison to my few years old Lexmark where I need to hook up a laptop with USB to configure its wireless via Lexmark software. This is the wireless setup process (easy as pie - 5 minutes if you are slow): 1) Power the printer on 2) The initial setup menu on the printer screen asks if you want to configure wireless - click...
Summary: All functions of this all in one unit perform extremely well but by far the greatest feature of all lies in replacement ink cartridges. As you know, individual replacement ink cartridges typically sell for upwards of $15 each. This particular model can use Brother LC-75 high capacity cartridges. Amazon sells 24 packs of these generic cartridges for an astounding $15, more or less. I have used these cartridges without noticeable change in print quality.
Summary: After 5 months the black ink jet stopped working. Brothers' customer service is open M-F 8-5. Which is wonderful when the majority of people work those same hours. We needed a printer that day, had lots of ink left, and reasoned we could work on getting theJ425 fixed and have a spare, all I needed was time off to call. We purchase a J430 which lasted 6 weeks before the black ink jet stopped.
I like this little printer, but WIFI (wireless) is problamatic...

Summary: The printer was easy to install. It works well scanning, after you get the software loaded. It prints nicely and the ink is reasonable and you only need to change the color you are running low on. Problem is that every day or so, sometimes multiple times a day, it loses its mind and I have to do the WPS setup again. This works really well, but I do not like that the printer forgets my network. Not had any power outages. System stays up.
Summary: This printer is probably the best inkjet you can find at a ridiculously low price. look up special ink cartridges and you can save yourself alot of money because you will only have to replace them every 2-3 years, hows that for a budget printer?
