Summary: It set up easily. That's a big deal because I'm old and not very tech savvy. Well, I didn't set up the wi-fi. That's beyond me. I've printed, faxed and copied with it. It has worked just fine. If it didn't I'd be squealing like a pig under a gate! So, I'm happy - and, for the price, I'm real happy!
Summary: Replacement for a similar printer from another manufacturer which lasted 23-months before dying. Grrr. Let's hope this one does better. This printer is small, light and was easy to set-up for WiFi printing. I use it as a network printer with Windows and Linux computers, and connections were easy. It has all my must-haves; color print, duplex print, scan, ADF with duplex. Compact size (7"/18cm high) means the paper tray capacity is relatively small.
Great when it works, but very inconsistently works for me.

Summary: When this printer works, I love it. The ink lasts an amazingly long time compared to my old, cheap Epson printer, and I love that has special functions like double sided printing and scanning directly to pdf. When it doesn't work, however, it's a complete nightmare. After about 2 months of owning it, the printer disconnects from the network constantly.

Summary: I love this printer. It is fast and quiet. It prints well and even prints from the cloud so you don;t have to connect it to one device (but can if you want). Consumer Reports gives it a good rating on ink use which is the most costly element in printing. I did have a bit of difficulty understanding how/where to save scanned documents but got it now. It scans well. I have not used fax function (don't have land line). great price...
2 words " enter Key" on screen during wifi set up would have made it a 5

Summary: Firstly, I notice at the time of this writing there is around a 15% negative reviews, most I've read so far are to do with connectivity, and lack of decent customer service. I know this because I too have had this problem connectivity problem, so I went reading for solutions. I received the machine yesterday afternoon as promised by Amazon Prime, and since around 4pm yesterday afternoon I have been trying to connect it to my wifi.

Summary: So far so good. I had an odd problem setting this printer up with a regular USB cable. The installation went fine until I was instructed to plug in the cable and then it just stopped. I went through a few tries on the phone with tech support. The young man was very polite but couldn't help me. I even went out and purchased a new cable to rule that out as the problem.
Summary: It has a lot of features, which I really like, and in general, works very well. Excellent price, too. The main problem I have with it, is the feature that I use the most (and bought it primarily for). The duplex printing. I volunteer for a community non-profit, and design and print their flyers and brochures. It does an awesome job of duplexing (2-sided printing). However...

Summary: Do not buy this printer if you want mobile device capability. It uses an app that is very limited!! it will not allow you to print what is on your device screen, you have to open this brother app, then open email or web, then go through hunting down the web page you want and hope you can find it. If its email, that's even worse because you have to select email and it only allows you to print the email, not any attachments (Which is what MOST people need to print).
Summary: I love this little compact printer. It is super easy to use, does everything I can imagine needing to do with a home printer and the wireless printer is way too much fun and in fact, has caused me to waste a lot of paper and ink printing things I didn't need just because the idea of being miles away and having whatever printable imaginings waiting for me at home was just too enticing.
Summary: I have had this printer for a few months now and overall I love this printer. I have started to work from my home office more often lately and need to print>sign>scan>email multi-page legal documents. This relatively inexpensive home scanner/printer is just as fast as the big expensive one I use in my company's office and much easier to connect to since it is wireless.
