Good printer with good functions
I bought this printer because I had a brother before this one and was very impressed. I also bought this one as it included the feature enabling me to print directly from iPad and iPhone.
All the other features work exactly as advertised, and it was also a piece of cake to set up. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

very nice looking.
Had difficulty setting up as I needed a disc player and my laptop does not have one.
Tried looking online to set it up but could not find anything.
A bit slower than wired but getting used to it.

Worth investigating this product.
Very pleased with the printer, plus it has the advantage of scanning and fax is an added bonus. A nice slim machine, easy to operate and simple to use.

Excellent printer for the price
This product has numerous features - printer, scanner, copier and prints A3 and A4 sheets to a good standard and very quickly. My only issue, and it is minor, is that you have to manually feed the A3 sheets one at a time. However, the price is superb and so I am happy to do this. Would definitely recommend

Good quality/cheap A3
A very good printer, amazing for its speed, and A3 capacity. And once I have tried it with photo paper and at its best printing quality, I must say it does the job.
A little disadvantage comes from the fact that double sided printing gets problematic when using thin paper (80g/sqm, or less), it gets jammed.
In addition to this, using the wifi conection works as long as you are not using a pc and a mac in the same environment. In which case it becomes crazy and looses connection... in the middle of the document you are printing.

Wakes up as soon as I do and has lots of features new to me, such as Double side and Booklet Printing. A bit slow and noisy to start printing, and photos could be better, but perhaps thats my fault. I shall have to get my Grandchildren to adjust it.

To date this printer has to be the best one we have had. It was easy to set-up, including connecting laptops/ipads, etc. the printing is fast and accurate, but it does seem to use up a lot of ink, especially when cleaning printer heads (which we have only done once as part of the initial set up). It is easy to use too, no more worrying about if it will print or be in 'off-line mode', it does what it says it will do without fuss.
The A3 printing facility is fantastic, as long it is in limited numbers, but this nevertheless has proved to be a God-send to me. So far, so good and we recommend this product, for either home or office use.

This product is good value for money
I purchased this product because I had already had a brother printer and was pleased with it. However I needed an air printer which prompted me to purchase the new orinter. Also the print cartidges are reasonable priced.

This product certainly does the job it says it will do
Have had no complaints about this product so far, had it for 3 weeks and pretty straightforward to use.

Family Use for Brother MFC-J4510DW
What I really appreciate about this printer is it's ease of use with all our laptops / devices. I particularly like the way I can use the iPad with the kids, find some pictures and, all wirelessly, get them printed out - the AirPrint function here is great. They think it's magic! It's stylish and fits neatly into our bureau, without needing to pull it out to load paper / change inks - everything is very accessible. Highly recommended.

Great Printer and the WiFi works too
Bought this to replace a K---K Hero which was less than a year old before it died. It was always poor. wifi never worked. Only good thing was cost of ink. This Brother on the other hand is a great machine. Quality is great very easy to set up and use. Wifi is great. Can photocopy multiple pages through the top loader and has the added benefit of A3 printing. Good if you do graphics/cad etc. It's also fairly compact when set up. Down side is cost of ink. Takes separate cartridges for each colour but a full set of OEM Ink is a whopping Â£60.00. Would benefit from a draft print setting (I use 'fast' instead) which would reduce ink usage. Very pleased so far and would definitely recommend.

First Brother purchase
This product is first class across all of its features and we highly recommend it

My New Printer
My new Brother printer does exactly what is says on the box.
I use it with my Apple Mac and setting up and installing was a dream.
The scanner has proved invaluable especially good for those documents you need to scan in a hurry.
Print speed is good and quality is very good too.
Well done Messrs Brother on a great product.

Great connectivity to multiple devices
Great connectivity to windows and apple devices. Installation and setup was pretty easy. Print quality and speed are pretty good although photo print quality isn't as high as expected for a printer at this price point.

PERFECT FOR ME
i PURCHASED IT FOR ITS LOOK! NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL, I KNOW, BUT IT'S A BROTHER PRODUCT AFTER ALL.
IT QUICK IF PERHAPS A LITTLE NOISY

Good Quality Printer
Easy to set up with a Mac even for someone with very little computer knowledge. Some issues with speed, maybe needs to be closer to the router.

Not as good as I had been led to believe
Works fine but I think is much slower than I had anticipated from reading numerous reviews. Also, very noisy - kind of throws the paper out with a loud noise - weird. Not as fast as my old printer. . Also, takes a very long time to print from wireless . I have had several printers, so not a complete beginner but have to see overall disappointed.
01 December 2013
Very pleased with this all-in-one although unable to link up fax (unimportant to me) due to remoteness from phone (my extensions are wireless). Like the 2sided booklet capability and A3 aspects in particular
22 November 2013
cannot access remotely
i downloaded apps to my iPhone but its useless cannot use to print any thing,just for wifi i can do things.
08 November 2013
Excellent all round printer with A3 capabilities and a small desk footprint
07 November 2013
The scanner does not work with Windows 8. Software provided for Windows 8 by Brother does not support scanner. If you want a printer that offers value for money, avoid this model

Good product for price
Good product for price, good points are, auto document feeder, single sheet feed tray, good software and very easy to use. Most of the functions can be driven by software as opposed to using the printer direct. Was very easy to set up, connected to my home network without any fuss.
Not so good points. You can't double side scan or copy using the auto sheet feeder, if you want to do this you need to do each sheet manually on the glass.

Does not work with the latest Mountain Lion
Regrettably the scanner part does not work with the latest Mountain Lion
29 October 2013
This product is good value for money and does everything I need for home office use. Like the fact that it has a paper tray as well as the ability to load paper from the back. Also includes slot to put in a media card to download or print photos which many printers seem not to have.

Generally good, but a few issues
Overall I am pleased with the design and functionality of this printer. It is a smart product and has some unique features that other products on the market struggle to compete with (e.g. A3 printing, inc. AirPrint, App functionality, paper drawer, scanner feeder etc)
But, there are a few issues with the one I have received - I'm not sure if this applies to all, but will be using the warranty if they get worse over time:
The fit of some of the opening panels if not great and very plastics in feel - you have to be gentle to avoid breaking
I have had a high number of paper jams as the machine is more like a mini photocopier in design. Even though I am using quality A4, it is very sensitive to mis-feeds and at times can take ages to clear out.
However, so long as the paper jams do not get worse, I can live with this on the basis that the benefit of the machine and it's wireless functionality outweigh the issues!

a pleasant surprise
my last printer lasted only two years after which it suffered a mechanical breakdown. I wanted to upgrade to a printer with a n A3 facility (albeit very rarely used) to print notices and posters. My new MFC-J4510DW surprised me in as much as all additional functions, i.g. card reader and connection to the internet are neatly hidden inside a compact and pleasing shape, fitting neatly onto a shelf in front of me. I do not use the fax facility, only the scanner which does work very well to my satisfaction.. Printing envelopes, however, is a bit long-winded and I dare say that you will, one day, develop a printer that has a dedicated slot to feed in envelopes ranging from DL to C4 and C5. Thank you for offering me a well thought out product.

Excellent with brilliant features
I am enjoying this product with all special features. Fantastic design, easy to install, connected to my mobile too with brother app and it prints good quality pictures. I like the flexibility it gives me to print, scan and copy with usb, memory card and even i can scan directlt to my cloud acc. Overall, worth its money so I would recommend this!

better than some
I have just bought a new Brother printer that I'm over the moon about .I would recommend this product rather then some bigger name's in the computing industry
20 October 2013
Good All Round Device
Considering the price this is a good all round device for home office use. The set up is really easy and printing is fast and good quality. The only niggle is the pull out paper tray is flimsy so not for heavy or young hands and when the printer pulls the paper from the tray it sounds clumsy.
In this price range however I would recommend this product.

Printer is great - but finding drivers and then understanding how to use them for a New Macbook Pro, not easy. Strange that the driver disk that comes with printer only has Mac drivers from 3+ years ok - Why?
