Really bad design. Can't print without turning off and on and waiting for startup to finish each time.

Summary: What kind of printer falls asleep and then won't wake up to print? Apparently this printer has this "feature" built in. Now I have seen the people saying how to disable the "deep sleep" mode and I did that. Problem is you can't disable the regular sleep mode and can at most set it to 50 minutes.
Summary: Tried AirPrint on this machine and it failed. Had to call Brother and they got it working. It failed again. Three phone calls to Brother plus chat and nobody would explain why it didn't AirPrint. This morning was the last straw when it didn't print from my desk top.
Summary: I bought this for a tad cheaper at an office supply store. I have been loyal to Brother printers for many years now but I gotta say Brother missed the mark on this one. I bought this printer specifically because it had Wifi Direct which I needed to to print from my Ipad at work.
Summary: Beware of Deep Sleep mode. I print many times when I am not at my desk. If you don't look to at the top of the printer and make sure it is not in Deep Sleep mode before you print, if it is, then the print job gets held up, you will need to cancel it, go to the printer and power off and then power on...
Excerpt: I was really excited about this printer, but unfortunately I could not get it to install properly. (I have installed other printers so I felt this would be just as simple.) The software disk started out well and everything seemed to be going smoothly and quickly, but then it got hung-up at a certian...
Summary: Easy to set up, as I am a low tech person. I purchased it to use as a copy machine. It has all of the functions I need. Enlarge, reduce, bypass feed, two sided copies, uses both 8x11 and legal sized paper. It also handles labels and envelopes. So far...I love it!
Excerpt: The wireless connection on this machine does not work consistently! Unless you want to spend 20 minutes every day or every other day to reconfigure this machine it will not connect! Lots of lost time spend on the phone redoing the configuration just to print something.
