Summary: This does everything it's supposed to do with no issues. Set-up and operation are a breeze. I'm using it with a Windows and MacBook Pro and both operate flawlessly using WiFi. Another rater stated he couldn't find his toner status. It's as easy as looking at the software that came with the printer.
QUICK TIP FOR THOSE WANTING TO PRINT on heavy paper thicker than card-stock!!

Summary: I love this printer! QUICK TIP - If you want to print paper thicker than cardstock, open the back panel to the printer, and voila! The thicker paper will come out of the open back panel, bypassing the rollers that the thicker paper gets stuck on.
When printer goes to sleep it loses wireless connection
29 March 2015
Summary: Print quality is great. The Sleep makes it so printer disappears from the network, and after Windows fails printing once, it doesn't print until network is reset or printer powered down and up (and most of the time PC as well). Never had this issue with older Brother printers.
Summary: As a techie, I did not have trouble setting up this printer, nor did I witness the "having to resetup wifi" issue that one of the 1-star posts mentioned. Furthermore, the color printing is not as bad as people make it out to be; they make it seem like one can only print charts/graphs - nope.
Excerpt: This Printer is sooo much faster than my InkJET.. OMG like day and night.. I have a lot of shipping labels to print and this thing works great for that.. Thanks Staples guy for helping me pick out this printer it is awesome and the price was good as well... Product worked as expected...
Summary: Review first published to MyMac.com This innovative printer employes Light Emitting Diodes in place of a laser in the Xerographic process. Although Brother makes no such claims or promises, this new technology should lead to lower power consumption over a longer useful in-service lifespan.
Excerpt: We replaced our Brother 3170 after it began to show problems with fusing of ink to paper. Since I was going with the same model, I expected an easy set up. Wrong. The wireless set up was difficult. Luckily the instructions and use of enclosed disk corrected the problem.
