Summary: DON"T buy this Piece of Junk unless you want to spend an ABSURD amount on ink replacements.
Pros: I originally bought this printer because a friend's color laser performance, which ironically broke a couple of months after I purchased this printer. It was great out of the box. Everything worked well and the print/scan qualities were good.
Cons: The disappointments began when I had to buy the first set of ink cartridges. First, the starter cartridges did not last any time at all, especially for someone who prints as little as I do these days. I bought a new set of cartridges which are not cheap, put them in and everything worked fine. I ...
Simply awful. Will never purchase from Brother again

Summary: First, I laughed when I returned to this product's page to write the review to see that it's price had gone up OVER TRIPLE what I paid for it about a year ago. Who are they kidding? I would call this thing a piece of trash, but that would be insulting to garbage.
Summary: I loved this printer while it worked. Small size, all the features I wanted, affordable. Unfortunately it began printing black pages and despite multiple print head cleanings, nothing could get the black ink flowing. From what I see online this is not an uncommon issue.
Summary: I reluctantly bought this unit despite having had a bad experience a number of years ago with a Brother MFC. I was willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt so I bought this a year ago; that was a mistake.
Pros: It worked for two months, printing extremely slowly, with low quality print scale. Scans did work but were extremely slow and jammed frequently - it is not a high capacity scanner.
Cons: There is no envelope feeder, so each time you need to print an envelope, you have to remove all the paper, and then stick in envelopes, and adjust. Then, when ready to print again, you have to reverse the sequence. Machine quit printing entirely despite new toner cartridges 45 days after purchase...
Summary: There has been many nuanced reviews posted here. I'm just going to post a brief one based on my experience. On the pro side, and this is unusual for inkjet printers in general, Brother has been relaxed about third party inks. As a result, there are amazing ink deals for this printer.
Summary: I am technology challanged and was wondering how I was going to get this Brother Black Compact Inkjet All-in-One with Fax and Wireless Networking (MFCJ265W) together since I had a lot of trouble with my HP. It was very easy to install.
Ink refill situation annoying-planned obsolescence gets so old!!!!

Summary: I got this printer at the end of April 2011. So far I have liked how the features worked. I've printed a lot of pages with the ink that came with it. But now the printer won't print because it says I need to refill the ink cartridge. The annoying thing is that it was still printing fine.
Summary: I was exciting when i order, i love the darn thing, one problem is that i cant scan without the stupid cable, but ill get one eventually, anyone looking to buy a new printer, really recommend this one, the wifi is amazing as i have the printer installed on all four of my computers throughout my...
Pros: +Awesome price for non brand ink +wifi works amazing +mobile app works really well
Cons: -in order to scan you need cable to direct computer, which didnt come with one
