Excerpt: I have only briefly used this printer but so far I am pleased. The printing speed is faster than I expected, however, the color is dim. I hope it is due to the starter ink included with the printer. If not improved when I purchase new ink, I will be 100% disappointed and wish I had known because I would not have purchased it. I rated this 3 stars due to its potential to be a 1 star or a 5 star - too early to know for sure.
Excerpt: i Love this printer. Easy to set up even the wireless connection. Also easy to print from iPhone. I'm not a tech person so I was surprised how easily it was to do myself. Also ink is so much cheaper than my last printer - hp office jet about $40 for black ink cartridge. And the color cartridges are separate so you don't have to get the one multicolor cartridge you can just but the color that's out. Not the fastest printer but that's outweighed by the ease of use.
Excerpt: This model replaced the 6710 we had, which started thinking it was jammed when using the auto-feed. Hope with one lasts a long time. The convenience of two trays is a must so we have access to both 11 x 17 and letter size paper. Quality is great and nice features.
Network printer good for large paper and duplex printing.

Summary: I was looking for a network printer that would be reliable. I had an HP that would constantly lose the connection and then I would need to reinstall the printer. So far, the Brother does not seem to have thai issue. The scanner software is just OK. I'm using Windows 8 and the scanner utility is about the best at grabbing the scan function and placing the image on the computer. Set-up was not easy and it took a couple of tries to get it working.
Summary: I have owned no less than 6 of the Brother MFC printers... this new top of the range unit is great. All of the upper-range MFC devices are excellent, with good speed, good print quality, quick scanning, and everything you could want from a basic do-it-all device. this will not print beautiful stationary and will not print frame quality photos. as a machine for a small business, though, it is perfect.
11x17 USER... If I had written this review a week ago it would have been 4 stars

Summary: DO NOT INSTALL FIRMWARE L IF YOU PRINT 11X17 PDF DOCUMENTS OF SIGNIFICANT (50+ PAGE) SIZE. I have bought two of these units, and have therefore several months experience; however, I only really started using the machine about a month and a half ago when I started working from home. If had written this review before the latest firmware revision (came out Dec 12th, Version L), it would have been 4 stars.
