Summary: I just got this printer set up today and already it compares unfavorably with my old HP. Like the HP, it has two paper trays, one for 4x6 photo paper, and one for 8.5x11 letter paper. The HP automatically figured out which tray to use from the image size and how many images per page.
Summary: I bought the Brother MFC-J825DW about three weeks ago. I don't do a lot of color printing...most of my day to day printing in on a laser printer, which ironically is also a Brother printer which I have been VERY happy with.
Summary: if you are buying this printer to use with multiple computers, look elsewhere!! it was not until i was downloading the software that i found out i could only put it on 2 computers. there are 5 in my household and that's why i wanted to go wireless.
Summary: I tried several times and triple checked, but it does not connect to my encrypted Belkin wireless network with WPA2 + AES encryption. However, my phone, my sister's phone, my laptop, my sister's laptop, and my iPod does.
Summary: I did a long print run - 100 A4 cards. That was enough to kill the printer. Talking to brother directly, they talked me though various tests (print head cleaning basically) but agreed that the printer had failed.
Worked for the first set of ink cartrages - then died

Summary: I read some really nice things about this printer - the wi-fi being the one thing I liked the most. I though it worked great when I first got it - print quality was good, print jobs were fast, and setup was great...
Summary: The printing quality of photos is actually quite poor compared to other makes of printers I have used in the past, I am a pensioner so cannot aford to just discard it, but when this one dies on me I will revert to my previous manufacturer
Summary: Poor paper feed. Decided not to use it for A4 printing for this reason ... a jam a minute. The printer now is used as a dedicated low volume A3 printer and scanner (using Brothers software) - This suits our purpose, however Avoid if the intention is to use as the principal A4 office workhorse...
