NEVER BUY THIS PRINTER! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR HEART!

S. Pidaso, Amazon
29 November 2015
  • Summary: NEVER, EVER, BUY THIS PRINTER! Since the first day of set-up the quality of color printing was terrible and margins never printed correctly. I am tech savvy and tried everything within my repertoire to fix these errors within the print system and set-up, but despite many test pages and alignments...

No wifi; then you need cable.

Ed C, Amazon
25 November 2015
  • Summary: I am on a wi-fi network provided by my university and it would not allow me to add the printer to the network because you need to verify your device has certain security updates; which can't be added to a printer.

If you want to print wirelessly, this printer isn't for you.

Kim Dorman, Amazon
18 October 2015
  • Summary: Wireless functionality is intermittent at best. I had to troubleshoot every time I want to print wirelessly... so I bought a USB cable and now use it plugged in... Totally defeats the purpose of why I bought it in the first place.

Eats Ink

Marshall A. Ford, Amazon
9 October 2015
  • Summary: Very sneaky Brother, very sneaky. As a printer, this thing works very well. It prints cleanly, the scanner works well, the software is easy to use and the wireless connection option is great to be able to send documents to it from a laptop across the room.

READ THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE PLUGGING ANYTHING IN OR TURNING IT ON!

airborne7395, Amazon
3 October 2015
  • Summary: You must read the directions BEFORE turning it on! Unlike any other machine Ive owned, the usb cord is routed through the machine to the front panel area. Do NOT connect it immediately! If you do, the set up will not proceed correctly.

) and boy did I love being able to send print jobs to the printer ...

K. Liljenquist, Amazon
29 September 2015
  • Summary: This was my first wireless printer (finally!) and boy did I love being able to send print jobs to the printer remotely. However, within a couple weeks, some of the documents I would send would spool endlessly (the printer would say "receiving data"....for days, literally!) and never print.

Run away

Constantine Vlahakis, Amazon
26 September 2015
  • Summary: Read a review in PC magazine and bought this printer. I no longer read PC magazine because it seems like their product reviews are paid for by the vendors. This printer has been nothing but trouble.

AirPrint is the only thing going for it

Allan Clark, Amazon
9 September 2015
  • Summary: Brother's software drivers are written 4 years ago, not maintained, not open-sourced (so no NAS, embedded, or improved variant possible). The closest thing they have to open-source is an open source thing that will download the incorrect opaque driver code for you and try to run it on the wrong...

Workhorse and Money-Saver

Ms. Marilyn K. Higgins, Amazon
24 August 2015
  • Summary: This a workhorse! If you do a lot of printing and want to do it inexpensively with aftermarket cartridges, this is what you need. It handles 65lb cardstock with no problem. It prints as straight as any printer I've had, which is important if you print two sided.

Inexpensive to buy, very cheap to operate and good output for modest to average home use.

G. Bennett, Amazon
23 August 2015
  • Summary: This is the best all in one I have ever owned from the perspective of purchase price, operating cost, and quality of output. I don't fax, so can't evaluate that. Ease of installation: installed as a network printer attached wirelessly to router.
