A good product that delivers value for money. However integrating with 3rd party products is a trial.
Having to uninstall Adobe Acrobat Pro, Uninstall the Paper Port software, Reload the Brother software and drivers then re-install the Acrobat Pro to allow the scanner function to integrate was a really painful exercise.
The Brother product support team denied responsibility but the Adobe support were magnificent in assisting to resolve this issue.
An article on the troubleshooting site will be helpful for other users having a similar issue.

Great printer excellent value for money
I purchased this item as my daughter and I are both studying at the moment and this is perfect because it uses a toner cartridge so we get thousands of pages printed off for less money than a conventional ink jet printer. We can also scan documents and images and then save them to our computers so there are less hard documents to keep. It also has a fax. We use it on a windows 7 PC and a MAC Mini OS X, 10.9.2 and all we do is swap the cables depending on what computer wants to print off.

An excellent all-rounder
Excellent product. We purchased a second printer because of the quality print it produced. In most cases, far better than the original copy. Easy to install, easy to use, easy!

I am extremely pleased with this product. It is straightforward to set up and use, scans, copies and prints very quickly and very well. It is very good value for money.

easy set up
we have had Brother Products before and maybe this helped but we found the printer easy to set up and as we have turned off all notifications when we rec a fax we don't even notice as the print is so quiet.

I bought this laser printer only recently but, so far, I'm very pleased with it.
The print quality is nice and sharp - and even in "toner save" mode, it is still quite good.
I haven't used the fax facility, but the copy and scan features work well, and the automatic document feeder makes bulk work simpler.
I like the fact that it goes into "deep sleep" mode after a while, so saving on electricity if you forget to switch off!
A minor criticism is that, when feeding paper into the manual slot (instead of the paper tray) you need to be very careful to keep the paper straight, otherwise the printing is a bit skewed. I would avoid using the manual slot for important documents.
This is a mono printer, but that suits my purposes. I wish it had a second paper tray so that I could use headed paper in one, and plain paper in the other, but I got what I paid for and I think this printer is good value.
