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. I called Brother and they had a tech take me through all the cleanings over again. After it failed to work, I was told that due to the two year warranty, they would send me a new upgraded model, free.
Summary: After having sworn off HP forever (long story, but I am sure that there is some kind of compatibility issue or curse between myself and their products), so I decided to give this Brother a try. It was super simple to set up with my wireless router because it has the fast set-up feature. The print quality is very good, it is not too slow, it is more compact that my HP all-in-one and much quieter.
Summary: i bought this machine after having major problems with hp 4500 wireless all in one machine. This brother set up was a snap as a fax and wireless shared printer. Highly recommend this machine after a frustrating experience with the hp. Hope this helps somebody else. I have now had this machine for several months excellent performance still highly recomend.
Summary: I have recently purchased this as a wireless network printer on a home network. Installation and set up was very easy. I set this up on four home computers without any difficulty at all. The print quality is very solid and the printer is quiet. The scanner is easy to use as well and the provided software is easy to navigate. I have printed a few pictures and the quality is average at best, but this is not why I bought this printer.
Excerpt: Wouldn't buy it again. It has too many options and only does scanning without any problems! I've replaced the yellow ink SEVERAL times!!! Prints too hard - meaning ink goes thru to the back of the paper. Wakes up with the press of the scan button but doesn't recognize that you want to scan...always defaluts to fax. Doesn't travel - and just sits by my desk so all is good.
Excerpt: I purchased the Brother MFC-J615W printer because I needed an affordable printer that had scanning and copying capabilities. I also needed one with affordable ink and I wanted the color inks to be separate instead of all in one. I have been happy with this printer. I haven't tried to print photos with it yet, so I can't really say how well it does with that.
Excerpt: My ancient HP printer finally died so I was on a hunt to find a printer that was affordable, compact with all the features I needed (scanner, copier as well as fax) and had positive reviews. This hit the mark on all points. Since I'm in an apartment, I don't have a lot of space and needed a printer that wasn't too high or wide so it could easily fit UNDER my desk. I also wanted something with wireless capabilities to keep cords to a minimum and this offered that option.
Great multifunction machine, easy setup, ok paper tray.

Summary: I actually bought this printer on sale at a local store for $70 dollars. I bought it to replace a Brother 440cn that I had for 4 years. The document feeder on that machine stopped working and for the price and many extra features, I decided to get the J615w. I've had many printers over the years and currently have an HP photosmart that I bought because It had better photo printing than my old brother.
Summary: Bought the 615w to replace an old Canon inkjet. After using it for a few months, some opinions are described below. Bottom line: would recommend this for home or small business use. Pros: Solidly built; Very good photo output; Excellent scanning and printing; Wireless works great; Price Cons: Print speeds are GREATLY exaggerated.
Summary: I have to say I just got my new Brother today and so far I love it. I had a Kodak and had nothing but trouble with it from day one.This one has some cool features,like printing out preview pages if u want, makes it easier to pick out the photos that u want to print the quality of the print for photos is great.........
