Summary: Even though it is out of production, I chose to pay more for this "obsolete" model over the new Brothers because of the ink cartridges. The new printers use the chipped, proprietary 101/103 cartridges, while this uses unchipped 71/75 cartridges (standard capacity/hi capacity). I alternate between generic and genuine ink, and don't want a printer tell me what I cannot and cannot use, or that a perfectly good full ink cartridge has "timed out".
Summary: I have now had two of these. The story is exactly the same. The printer has few jams. It copies well. It prints quickly. Installation on a network is very tedious and takes a half hour per computer. Even though I always use only expensive innobella ink,the unit plugs up after 6 months of use. No matter how much ink you waste in cleaning mode,it becomes an expensive paper weight.
Summary: It worked couple of times, than stopped printing right! I bought original Brother ink, I wish now that, I have had a Epson series! This machine not only does not work, also whenever printer cleans the ink, 25% of the ink disappears every time! Please dont buy, Brother!!!
Summary: I have had this printer for almost a year. It's a bit slow and loud and I wasn't in love with it, but I just found out that it will just NOT PRINT if it decides that the ink level on even one of the 3 color cartridges is too low "to maintain print quality." Even if I set it to print in grayscale (and my black ink cartridge is brand new) it will still not print. at all. what's even more frustrating is that I barely even use the colored ink!
Summary: The enclosed CD does not work if you have a Mac 10.8. What a pain. Called brothers tech support only to "talk" to someone who barely speaks English. I'll try again tomorrow. If I can't get some help to download a newer software pkg, this will be going back to the store.... Will update tomorrow. Angry right now...
Summary: This is my first Brother printer. I have only owned HP in the past but very tired of their ink hogs and customer non-service so I decided to try Brother. Have been using it for a few weeks and Pros: it's not a HP; doesn't seem to drain ink as fast as a bathtub drains; print quality if very good; it's not a HP; installation was easy; I had selected the wrong fax option during installation so just reinstalled selecting a different option and now the fax works fine; it's...
Summary: It does everything a printer should and it does it all very well. The ink is expensive (as they all are) but not as expensive as some for other printers I have owned. In all, a great deal and product!!
Brother MFC-J835W Inkjet All in one printer network ready

Summary: I haven't had that much time to play with it but, I have been very pleased with the results so far. The set-up was super easy. I do not like hp products and am totally for Lexmark products but, their prices now are a little to rich for my blood. I think this one would even give Lexmark a run for the money --but, I haven't yet checked on the ink jet refill cartrages price yet. For the price I think I made a wise decision-- i'm happy with it so far.

Summary: I purchased this printer for my wife's office and it was perfect. So because this printer was so good and they said I could print on CDs directly, I was eager to replace my Canon printer in my office with it. I do a lot of CD labeling and thought this would work better than sticking labels on the cds. I currently use Mediaface Labeling software which has worked perfectly and easily for years. The only software you can use with the Brother is NewSoft CD labeling software.
