Excerpt: We needed to replace our HP color printer/scanner/copier that we had gotten with a promotion. We have purchased Brother machines for the past 11 years. Brother machines are work horses. They function as promised. The quality of the copy/print is excellent. It scans well. We had some initial difficulty setting up the wireless feature. Called Brother tech support at 6: 30 on a Saturday evening and the representative walked us through the steps in about 10 minutes.
Summary: We couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work so we contacted a Brother tech. We were on the phone for over an hour before she was finally able to get it to work. The next day, it again had lost its connection. We were on the phone with another tech for close to an hour. She couldn't get it to work and said that our modem was defective and we should contact our server. We just packed up the printer and sent it back for refund.
Summary: Nice all in one printer that is ideal for the home office. It requires very little space and the wireless set up software worked flawless and took less than ten minutes to get the printer functioning on the network. This printer does not like cheap bargain paper but works well with regular 20 lb. inkjet paper. Haven’t had any jams or feed problems since switching to inkjet paper. I buy my ink from Clickinks and had no compatibility problems with the off brand inks.
Summary: I used Brother MFC260 for about 3 years and it was very ok for me. It was only recently that it started creating problem with inferior printing quality thought it was the ink problem so I changed it but it is still the same. But based on the performance of the MFC260 for 3 years, I went in for this one. I think Brother on a whole is not bad as a printer.
Summary: After trying for at least a dozen times to get this printer connected via WiFi and in all ways possible it would just not communicate with my system. I finally gave up and connected via USB which doesn't help at all because I want to be able to scan print and Fax from two different computers. I had to buy a USB switch which sometimes works and sometime doesn't. Not happy at all about this.
Use the CD Rom's installation wizard for set up or you'll have trouble

Summary: It's pretty good on features for what you pay but there are some issues with the set-up. I've only had it for a few weeks so I'll re-post if I develop some of the other problems noted in the unfavorable reviews. It took me about two days working full time to get it set up. I had to install and uninstall several times, research the web-site, and try a bunch of things. Initially couldn't get the wi-fi to connect, etc.
Summary: This is an awful printer. Paper jamming problems from day one. Purchased during summer and we live near the water so we assumed it might just be the humidity. Its fall now and the jamming problems continue. Also tried several different paper qualities to no avail. The price isn't worth the aggravation. Steer clear of this one.
Summary: 1. This printer is not compatible with Stamps.com if you want to print postage directly onto envelopes (USPS requires that the stamp be printed no more than a certain distance from the edge of the envelope, which this printer can't handle). 2. You must choose "photo" in print quality in order to avoid really washed out photos, colored text and graphics. 3. If you choose "photo", you cannot print automatic double-sided.
Summary: Brother MFCJ650DW Wireless Printer. Well only had it two days and it's already 100 times better than my last 2 HP wireless printers. I have a feeling this my be the start of a LONG term love affair! Everything worked, right out of the box. All ink cartridges were recognized right from the get go!! The Wifi connected right up, no problem! It printed very nice color copies right off and very beautiful 4x6 color photos, wirelessly!!
