Summary: Great printer with a lot of features. Print quality is excellent and the LCD touch screen is a nice touch. Will do pretty much anything you want it to, double sided copy and print, color fax, etc., etc. Be careful when setting this up. I had most wireless devices losing the printer and showing a consistent "offline" message both wired and wirelessly.
Summary: I purchased this printer one year ago. Here is my experience in one year. Pros: NONE Cons: Very slow Very noisy Jammed paper often especially when you use manual feed more than 50% chance! Envelope become wrinkled badly even use envelope mode Copy is very weak, like translucent. Feels 30% density. I called CS many times, but they asked me to do many different settings, and nothing happens. I gave up. Scanner lose connection to PC often, then I have to restart my PC.
Summary: I have had this printer for 6 months now. I had hoped to reduce my toner cost, but that has not happened. I buy cheaper toner at Amazon instead of branded toner, which is too expensive. The problem is, Brother makes it difficult to use other toner, you have to reset the cartridge manually, which is a crazy process. Also, the usage is not what you use, but is based on the number of pages you print. So you need to reset a cartridge before you change it, it may be full!
Summary: CAUTION: before you purchase, be very aware that the Duplex Printing does not mean that it can Scan and Copy in duplex - IT CAN NOT. What this means is if you have a two sided document that you need to copy or scan, you have to do it a page at a time on the flatbed. CAUTION: If you are scanning a document using the flat bed scanner, and you need to take a break, such as answer the phone, the scan will time out in a very short time (60 seconds) and close the file.
Summary: This is an amazing machine. I got it on such a great deal because it was an opened box item but it was completely new. The print quality is excellent. I can never got back to inkjet prints. It puts out paper so fast that it's hard to keep up taking them put and laying them flat to give it less of a page curl. Tone is much more expensive but I was able to print over a thousand double sided sheets before needing to replace the black.
Pretty average printer, falls down if you're trying to connect wirelessly

Summary: Decent prints in black and white. Color is quite poor for any real world use. Scanner is weak and the provided app is poor to say the least. But where this machine really falls down is connecting wirelessly. It worked for the first few weeks and then just simply stopped. Airprint, Wifi - nothing works! Updated to latest drivers and firmware and still nothing. Brother - please get it together. I expect more from a $400 printer!!
Summary: I am very happy with this purchase. The color is very good. Not sure how photo prints will look because I haven't tried it yet. Scan works good. I have printed 450 sheets so far and haven't had to get toner yet but the black is pretty low. I have printed envelopes and they come out perfect. The wifi is flawless. I have all Apple equipment and they all connect just fine. I would highly recommend this printer.
Summary: This is a FANTASTIC printer. Does everything very well. It does however, ask you replace the toner cartridges after about 500 sheets of paper. I was able to reset them and continue using the black toner for WELL over 1000 sheets. I've printed THOUSANDS of pages and keep resetting the color toner cartridges and they still work perfectly! So the only complaint I had was the stupid premature cartridge replacement warning.
Summary: Awesome printer for a home office. Scanning to my computer or a USB stick, copying, and printing are all effortless. Great interface for the cost. Love the touchscreen. Good print quality. I have had nothing but great success with Brother.
Summary: I love this Brother machine. Savings are great on toner over ink printers. I also love that you can scan directly to thumb drive instead of having to download to computer then copy. Very nice machine and really easy to set up.
