Great value printer
Simple and quick to set up, with good print quality. Great that I can now print directly from my phone and tablet.

Terrific printer, easy set up.
I have been looking at laser printers for a little while and settled on this due to the duplex and colour options. The price was another reason I chose this particular model. It also accommodates a full ream of paper.
Reproduction is good and fairly quick too.
Very happy with purchase - £119 at Curry's.

Quality, low cost duplex laser printer
This is a quality laser printer, and is relatively heavy and robust giving an impression of high quality.
The duplex functionality is excellent, and ideal for printing professional documents and proposals.
Only niggle is setting up the WiFi link, which can be a little fiddly.
Overall very, very good!

Unexpectedly good photo quality - a little work needed on set-up instructions
A pleasant surprise with this printer is that using it for photo's - especially if you use proper laser glossy paper - gives pretty decent results. Not quite as good as you'd get from an inkjet, but perfectly satisfactory for anything short of displaying on a wall or in an album. A definite alternative for those people like me who print infrequently, and have previously spent time tearing their hair out over clogged up inkjet printers!
Set-up was fairly simple. The only issue was that my computer kept reporting the printer (connected by wifi) as being offline. I quickly realised this was due to the software requiring the printer have a static IP to find it. A quick change to the settings of my router, and all was solved. Mentioning that in the set-up documents would have saved a headache though!

THE MOVE TO LASER MADE EASY
There's nothing I can say about this printer that has not already been said in the previous reviews. However, I just bought this printer at Currys for £126 inc vat. Add that to the reviews here and it's a bit of a bargain too. I'm delighted with the results. I don't particularly print high end photographs so I won't be returning to inkjet, especially as my last two have died because of the heads clogging. The quality from this printer is more than enough for normal household colour tasks.

The quality of this printer is excellent. No problems installing and connecting via wi-fi. The quietest machine i have owned and the print quality cannot be faulted.

Truly plug & print. Congratulations
Colour printers are a bit of a minefield when looking to purchase. Especially when many manufacturers make lots of claims about performance and the dreaded ink-jet appears great value for money right up to the moment you count up how many cartridges you've gone through!
Not so Brother. The printer made honest claims, was extremely easy to connect up wirelessly and just sits in the corner of the room awaiting instructions. Even linking up to my android phone was simple so printing from the garden was made possible...
(One irritation, especially at ticket desks, is the app now tries to print every PDF so it's not possible (as far as I know) to preview them without switching on the print app).
However, well done Brother folk, a very good product.

Good but could be better
Excellent printer for home use although a bit large. Have used it to produce duplex booklets and it produced a quality print. I wish it was a little faster as 60 5 page booklets took a long time to produce. More memory would probably help. Brother produce great products and overall I am very pleased with the product and purchase price. I would like to add that toner is expensive to replace and brother should consider making the cost of the consumable more attractive to help strengthen the brand. Hope it doesn't break down...
