Summary: This printer lasted just over a year, then died with a "Cannot Detect" error. It can no longer detect the ink cartridges. It is off warranty now, so the only feasible fix is to throw away the printer. During its short lifetime, the fax and scan functions worked fine. No problems with page feed. But there were continual problems with the ink cartridges. I bought the expensive authentic cartridges.....but that did not help.
Summary: I use this with both my Mac and a PC and have no issues. Printing Quality is pretty great (haven't printed pictures yet though), Printing speed is fairly fast. Scanning and faxing quality is clear also.
Summary: The printer is exactly as advertised. Incredibly easy to set up using wifi for all of our devices. The Brother brand ink is still more expensive than I like, but there are off brands that are working well with the printer. I like that when I needed to change the ink instructions were displayed on the printer screen, no having to dig out the manual.
Summary: I bought this cuz my old Canon quit working, and Consumer Reports rates the Brother all-in-ones pretty highly (especially for the price). This is a very nice printer! I just wish the "Scan" interface was a little more friendly.

Summary: I purchased the Brother MFS-J435W Network-Ready Wireless Color All-in-One Printer for my son to take to school. It works seamless so far. We hooked up at home to our wireless network with ease to test. My son is not using the wireless connection at school, so we did purchase the cable to connect the labtop directly to the printer. Bottom line is it works great so far!
Summary: And when it works - it works. And quite well. But every so often it forgets about it's ability to print black, which drives me and the Mrs. friggin' nutz! Especially me, because I have to listen to her, you know what I mean? And then, out of the blue (or should I say black?) it will start printing again (and work flawlessly). This printer is definitely a love/hate relationship! Don't have enough frustration and angst in your life? Buy this printer!
