After many years my old printer finally gave up and a colleague recommended Brother. This machine is fantastic especially the double side scan and copy facility. The initially cartridge lasted two weeks and the full cartridge was easy to swap. The installation CD is very easy to use.

next 11 years
old Brother Multi Function machine lasted 11 years and still running - had to change due to need of colour - this new one is excellent.
Quick, sharp, scanning both sides is a time saver.
Set up was easy wifi is good too.
hopefully at least 11 years from this one too

Good product but hopeless instructions
Easy to set up for the basics, but the CD provided wouldn't install the drivers for the software for scanning etc. Machine also said it didm;t recognise my Mac ( with a current operating system). Brother's 24/7 support service did not reply for a week, and later claimed it had been having update issues. The instruction books are ridiculously complex - info is spread across 3 separate manuals. Someone else helped me to get the system working, and it now does everything fine, incl multi-page scans and double sided printing. Print quality is good but a bit grey.

Great piece of kit
This printer does everything and more i asked for. The dublex copying,scanning and faxing are great and saves paper into the bargain. I send email and documents from my iphone with ease and the results are perfect.
I would reccomend this printer to anyone.

An Average Product
The print speed is slow and the printer takes ages to wake up. Print quality is no more than average. The scanner is also not brilliant, images have a blueish background and the OCR is terrible at recognition. Overall, I think the product is overpriced and certainly doesn't come up to expectation.

Well worth every penny
4 things I look for in a printer:
2) Print Quality
4) Value for money
It ticks all 4 boxes in style, especially the auto double sided printing feature.
A dream to set-up and was ready to use immediately via iOS and PC devices around the office.
Excellent print quality
Basically, you can buy cheaper printers, but the way this is packed with features and just gets on and does everything without any fuss whatsoever makes this a really good buy as far as I'm concerned.

Seriously good printer
Came across this printer after looking around the usual high street outlets at their pretty poor offering. This printer has all the features I wanted - all in one, laser, double sided, compact dimensions and not black. The only issue I'd reference is the software provided wasn't up to date with the latest Apple iOS downloading the drivers could have been a bit easier. A more straightforward installation would have provided the 5th star.

Great all-round printer / scanner for home office
This printer does everything I need in one smart looking box - full auto-duplex colour and B/W printing, plus double sided scaning and copying - plus the scanner will auto save PDFs to my PC or Dropbox, which is handy. The device is a little bigger than I was expecting (should have checked dimensions before ordering) but it's not "too big" and fits in a home office / study very well. Overall impressed and would recommend.
