Summary: So, it's 2 years old by now. Generally, it's a good printer. Does whatever I've wanted it to. However, it wastes ink like mad. I always try to remember to unplug it when I'm not using it, because when it auto-cleans (which it for some reason does in the middle of the night), it not only wakes me up, but it also uses a LOT of ink. Wish I could give you the exact percentage and stats, but it's a LOT.

Summary: This printer is awesome. First I am able to print from my Ipad, huge improvement over my last Brother printer. It is a little large, but I love the features it has and the color is vibrant. Excellent printer.
Summary: This is an outstanding printer. Not only does it do 2-sided printing, it does simultaneous 2-sided scanning! The scanning is very fast and makes great copies. The color printing is superb. This was so worth the money over an ink jet multi-function printer.
Summary: I replaced a Brother MFC-9840CDW, and I am very pleased overall. Pros: The time to first page is VERY fast, especially compared with my older printer. The time to scan the first page is IMMEDIATE. The old printer used a fluorescent tube, where this uses an led bar which is instant on. Dual sided scanning is EXTREMELY fast, especially compared to the weird method the older models used. This is a single pass system with way less jams etc.
Summary: This is just an initial review as I have just received the printer and set it up. Everyone's review on how big this is is accurate. This is a large printer that you will need room for. Set up was easy. I put the printer where I wanted it, plug in the power, telephone, and ethernet lines. I turned it on and did the initial set up. I used the software CD on my computer. Set printer up for ethernet and wireless printing and everything seems to work as it should.
