Summary: I set this up on a home network with 2 PCs and 3 Macs over a generic Time Warner WEP Wifi network and everything connected without a hitch. Someone else wrote here that the printer is limited to 3 computers out of the box but that certainly wasn't the case for me. Also to give some context, I've never used the DVD or fax features, so I can't comment on those. Here's what I found that worked, and what didn't.
Summary: This was a great printer. Printed great from all devices including android and apple products especially iPad. Unfortunately it stopped working 4 months after receiving it. This is most likely not a common occurrence but just the other day the black ink just stopped printing. I replaced the black ink with a genuine cartridge and still nothing. This evening I got off the phone with Brother and they are sending a replacement printer.
Summary: I have had several Brother MFC printers previously. All performed very well for price. This one has been a bit different in that it seems to use up a lot of ink very quickly yet the color intensity is still not very good. Blocks of solid red or blue come out looking faded and grayish. Doesn't seem to matter if the print quality is changed from normal to vivid to photo. If you are printing mostly documents, it should be fine.
Summary: I bought this printer primarily for the DVD disc printing capability - I didn't need more printers, scanners or faxes, but that all came along for the ride. So far, I am quite happy with almost all the printer features and functionality, and I will be dumping several older printers when the ink is gone in them. Print quality - very good, and fast. I do a good amount of two-sided printing, and that feature works well.
Summary: Generally speaking, this printer so far is VERY GOOD for the price. It does what it says, and it is very USER-FRIENDLY. My two complaints are the following: (1) My previous printer (a 2005 HP) printed with the same resolution in "normal" and "fast print/draft", the only difference being the quality of the ink's hue or depth (and, of course, the speed). That is, the 2005 HP Printer printed a lighter-colored draft document, but very quickly.
Summary: Reading the other reviews, perhaps I got a bum unit. I bought this to replace a years-old Canon MP860 that was just too big and heavy, and needed a full set of cartridges after a year or so of storage. I was planning on a Canon MX882, but I found this, and thought for the money, it sounds great... Brother is supposed to be professional, right? First, the build quality is AWFUL.
Summary: product appears to be fragile flimsy perhaps not put together as well as i expected when i bought this product i could not use the double sided printing facility on this machine via using the ADF so i sent the product back for a replacement now the positives the printer is easy to set up it is quiet the touch screen is responsive and ink is cheap quality of printing is fair to good
Mein 2. Bruder - aber diesmal mit eingeschränkter Funktion
2 June 2013
Summary: Nachdem mein alter Multifunktionsgerät nach knapp 4 Jahren den Dienst zum Teil quittiert hatte, musste ein neuer her. Mein altes Gerät kam aus dem Hause Brother und leistete mir sehr gute Dienste, bis der Drucker nur noch unklare, etwas verwischte Ergebnisse lieferte. Ich drucke öfter Versandscheine für Hermes und DHL aus – nachdem ich von beiden Annahmestellen auf die unklaren Druckergebnisse angesprochen wurde, die die Scanner nicht mehr problemlos erkannten, war klar:...
