A number of failings let this printer down
Unfortunately there are a number of failings that let this printer down very badly.
Regardless of the quality of the paper, the printer often sucked several sheets of paper through into the machine at one go.
It was also very intolerant of thicker paper and would jam up when other printers accept the thicker paper happily. It didn't like glossy paper and would often jam when I tried to print on photo paper.
The A3 feed at the back was very difficult to access and unless you aligned up the paper perfectly it spat it out or did not recognise it. And when printing on A3 the printer often confused landscape with portrait and printed across the sheet leaving the top and bottom blank.
Scanning onto a usb stick was very complicated and a very hit and miss process.
You see that it is all in the past tense, after only about 2 to 3 years of mild use the printer literally blew up and I was unable to access the innards to see it I could sort it. I am afraid that this is not a machine I will buy again.

At last, A3 capability!
I am really pleased with my purchase. As mentioned, not only does it have A3 capability both my partner and I can use the same printer as it is wi-fi. I am very happy with this printer.

It goes offline frequently
Unfortunately this printer goes offline and I have to delete and reinstall it on a daily basis. When its working, it is great - the double sided printing is very useful. The actual machine is very lightweight compared to my other Brother printers, hence the cheap price I guess.

GOOD HOME OFFICE PRODUCT
Having recently purchased this Brother printer, I am pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and high standard of scanning, copying and printing produced. It certainly achieves the targets I require for my own Office work from Home.

Good and may improve with my knowledge of how it works
I found the installation on a wireless connection very straightforward following on screen instructions. I was however disappointed to find all the features did not work and had to re install using the disk.
Document printing can be very delayed but once we changed the default setting the quality is good if you dont mind waiting.
Photos do come out with a bit of a red glow to them. I havnt managed to work out the scan feature as yet but if I do things can only get better.

This printer was so easy to set up that I was printing with it minutes after first opening the box. Print quality is brilliant (I am using it mainly for photo cards) and it has no problem when I have used high GSM card either. So far, it seems very economical as I am still using the set up inks, they normally run out after a couple of days. Over all I am really pleased with this printer and would definitely recommend it and other Brother products to friends.
