  • Scan Quality

    What is the scan speed and quality like? I've never used a Brother product (that wasn't a sewing machine, heh!) I have an old out dated large format scanner on its last leg. I'm a media artist who depends on a quality scan but can't afford the high end larger format scanners. This size (and price) would be perfect if it would reproduce artworks faithfully.

  • Frequency of Use

    Will infrequent use damage print capability (ink)? I'm a casual user, but need poster size and am willing to pay the price -- just don't want my now-and-then use to destroy the unit.
