getting it out of the box is the difficult bit. once out of the protective packaging it is easy to install and print within minutes. fast copies and great quality. typically Brother.

Excellent for both small text and photos
Great for fine text print of any colour. Also very nice photo printer.
Duplex printing seems to be the default setting - very useful.
Scanning (and printing) from the iPad app is really simple, just scan then select which cloud storage you want or which app you want to open your doc in.
As others have said, duplex scanning from the document feeder would have been nice, the way around this would be to single-sided photocopy one side, then manually insert these into your original. Then scan the set.
He paper tray is fine, better an others I've used (HP).
Wifi is easy to setup and works very well. Setting up a fixed IP address is also a breeze.
Overall a nice looking, quiet, easy to use machine with great quality prints.

good all rounder
Excellent machine for all round home use, easy to set up and prints beautifully. It's a bit on the larger side and quite heavy, but i knew that before i bought it. The build quality seems to be quite high and having worked with brother printers over many years i would expect it to outlast me. With all the promotional offers out there at the moment i was able to buy it for a pittence and long term the toner should be far cheaper than ink. Overall i am very chuffed with my purchase, although i have only had it for two weeks i don't envisage having any major problems with it.

A few niggles
A good printer, scanner, copier. Nice and compact and surprisingly quiet. It is let down by the fact that it does not have an SD card slot. It is also let down by the fact that it has duplex printing but not duplex scanning. Otherwise it would have scored 5/5.
