Summary: This printer replaces my HP MFC printer. They roughly cost the same price, but the Brother printer is so much better. I love the brother printer, I hated the HP. Comparison of printers: Brother document feeder - works like a charm without jamming printer produces high quality output scanner products high quality jpeg images stays connected to the network ink is much less expensive aftermarket ink works very well and is even less expensive ink is easy to replace printer...
Summary: I had been using an HP Photosmart 3210xi USB printer for several years but I came to the conclusion that my current build Windows 7 computer could not use it to print. Scan worked, but the outdated HP drivers and software made me want to look for something modern. I read up on similar price point wireless All-in-one printers and found many comments about Brother's efficient ink costs.
Summary: This is a great printer. You can't beat the value. I actually just bought a second one for my mom. The speed is good, print quality is great. The wireless is easy to set up. We can now print from phones, tablets, and wireless computers!!

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: This is the first time I have ever had to take my wireless router to the local tech guy so that I could connect a device to my network. The error message from Brother said that encryption modes used by my router were not supported by the printer. Brother support said, "Call your internet provider or the router manufacturer". Internet provider said, "call the router manufacturer".
Set up issue eventually resolved, then a good machine

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.
