Summary: I love the wifi and on/off" I select Print on my document, it wakes up and prints then goes back to sleep -- I don't have to ever turn it off and on. I get great color documents. Becuase it's wireless I can put it somewhere more convenient -- it's not tethered to the PC. The duplex is wonderful and I've never had a jam. I don't have ink cartridges that keep drying up and needing to be replaced.
Pros: It is "off" (but listening), I press Print on my PC and it wakes up and services my request -- over wifi (no wires)
Cons: Following the instructions to setup wifi was a little confusing with all the page jumping -- it worked find, but tedious
Summary: I'm tired of using inkjet printers. I especially hate the Epson inkject catridges with programmed chips, they forced me to keep buying new ones although there's still a half-full ink. I picked Brother after doing some research. So far I like its superior quality, fast color printing, the duplex capability, plus it works with wirelessly. Also it has Energy Saver feature and yet it still can wake up, print quite fast.
Pros: No more ink catridges to worry about
Cons: It cannot print on DVD/CD directly like other Brother inkjet printer
Summary: Finally got fed up with inkjet printers, and decided to make the move to laser. After much research, landed on this Brother. Prints very fast, no annoying back and forth and slowness of an inkjet. The wireless works great as I don't have to have it near the computer desk. Was very easy to set up and have had zero printing problems. Price cannot be beat for such a quality laser printer.
Summary: I recently had to print 1500 pages of text with moderate amount of color (images / alternating rows of different solid color background). This $160 printer blew away my expectations... extremely happy with the results, the auto-duplexing is a major time and cost saver (if you used manual duplexing before, you know how annoying it is when a printer prints two pages instead of one and you have to start all over again? yeah) and the easy wifi setup is also a major win.
Superb because it's easy to install/setup, reliable hardware and software!

Summary: This is my first ever laser printer and I am absolutely delighted with it. I work in computer technical support and used to do purchasing for computer stores during the days when Brother printers were frowned upon (late 1990's, early 2000's). So BELIEVE ME when I say that Brother is a completely transformed company! This printer has literally all the features anyone can want from a colour laser!
Summary: I had two printers; a Brother Monochrome Laser Printer (from 3 years ago) and an HP Photosmart color inkjet printer. I was kind of sick of buying cartridges for both. So, picked this thing up for under $200, and with Prime, got it in less than 2 days. The instructions can be a bit hard to follow (do yourself a favor and add the printer like you normally would in Windows via Control Panel). It was just about 2 inches longer than I thought it was going to be.
Excerpt: Отличный принтер. Удобный даже для домашнего использования (можно куда угодно его поставить я лично поставил его в кладовку на полку) Покупал так как ребёнок пошёл в школу и нужно иногда что либо распечатывать. Побоялся что струйник будет засыхать вот и купил лазер - не жалею.
Pros: Лёгкость подключения к сети, Отличная цветная печать, даже фотографии печатает нормально (не струйник но всёже видно что это именно фотография). Удобство WI-Fi просто неописуемое! вроде как не сетевой, но все домашние устройства его видят.
Cons: Как и у всех лазерников - дорогие картриджи.
