Summary: This printer is fine when it's working but I have to get replacement ink every few months and I only print maybe 10-15 pieces of paper for work in black and white out in that timeframe. I never use the color yet those are the first cartridges to say they are empty.
Summary: It does it's job but it also EATS up your ink. I MAY have printed from this in grayscale about 20-30 pages in 6 months and I'm already low on ink - color and black. If you're looking for a printer + scanner I'd look for another.
Summary: At first I liked this thing. After a several months, not so much. The ink this thing uses goes quick and something mechanical inside goes off fairly frequently, making a good amount of noise. This occurs even when the printer is off. I don't really care what it is actually doing when it does it.
After 3 years of ownership - strongly wish I bought something else

Summary: Why do I not like it? 1) If you want decent quality print, must go into preferences EACH TIME and choose 'photo' (if color) or 'high' if black 2) no good way to clear a jam 3) even if you're only out of yellow ink, won't print anything, even if it's just black text 4) if load up any kind of special...
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 bought this printer to replace a year-old Brother multi-function machine that finally gave up. I was happy with that model,MFC-5895CW, which was heavier and did a lot of printing until the print heads clogged and would not respond with the proper color.
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.
