Excerpt: It is a good printer, but I wish I would have stuck with the MFC-490CW. I moved and left the MFC-490CW for my daughter, so I bought the J430w for my self. I do not like that it has to have a cord attached to my laptop in order for me to scan, I am use to just sticking my USB in the printer for that.
Pros: it prints very well.
Cons: usb cord needed to scan, usb cord not included
Excerpt: If you are looking for a an easy to set up printer this may not be the one for you. The wireless set up is difficult to say the least. Brother's customer service live chat is also not helpful. The agent wasn't able to help me solve my connection issues, and just hung up on me.
Summary: Got it yesterday (8/6/12) for under $48 w/tax. Nice unit, papertray is thin plastic, but no worse than any other lower priced unit. Haven't tried all the functions, but the printing is OK, not bad. Good enough for school work. Setup, on an Airport router, was easy after the fact.
Nice Scan Quality but cannot scan from scanner to computer

Summary: Pros: nice quality scan and print, adf Cons: cannot scan from scanner to computer. The diagnostics checked out, but after 3 tries with their customer support they could not find an answer and gave up. I can scan from my computer, but not from the unit itself
Good printer for the price, but very cheap paper tray
16 January 2012
Summary: This is a good printer for the price, but the paper tray is extremely cheap and not easy to use. I purchased this printer for small office applications, and was drawn to the price and features (all in one). However, after just a few uses, one of the clips on the side of the paper tray cover broke.
Summary: Schnell geliefert, leicht installiert, druckt gut schwarz/weiß - Fotos leider auch in schwarz/weiß aus den Farbpatronen. Gute Druckqualität bei Bildern erst ab Fotodruck - sonst zu blaß. Papiereinzug ist empfindlich - schnell mal verstopft.
Summary: Resulta muy práctico que sea multifunción con fax, pero es bastante grande y en una casa parece un mamotreto. Tampoco me gusta que sea negra, ya que se ve mucho el polvo. Hasta ahora la he usado poco, pero siempre me ha funcionado bien.
