Excellent so far
I've only had this printer about 2 weeks. So far very pleased with it. I had been struggling with a 15 year old HP DeskJet which had served me well.
The print, although sharp, is a little bit feint. I am still on the starter cartridges. Maybe it will be better on the normal ones.
I connected the printer using the old USB cable initially but then got it working wirelessly using a Brother plug-in from an Android tablet. So it is connected both ways.

I bought this printer because it will take A3 paper and card to a decent weight. It is good value considering these features. However I found it difficult to connect to my wireless set up and this is the second I have had to have in a year as the components are really fragile and made of low quality plastic which must have melted somehow possibly when I was cleaning the rollers.

Great value printer
My HP printer developed a fault and I needed a replacement for my home office. The printer had good internet reviews.
It was really easy to set up and connect to my router.
The print quality and speed are good enough for my needs. A bonus is that the printer can print automatic duplex.
Overall I am pleased with the value of the printer.

Very pleased with it, but can't get it working wirelessly. A problem I've had with other printers, mind.

Printing and scanning
I have only had the printer a few weeks. The printer is more noisy than I expected but the print quality is not bad. The few photos I have printed have come out quite well. The A3 facility is useful as I do need to occasionally print larger size documents. I am somewhat disappointed in the scanning facility. The functionality seems to be somewhat limited and I have had ro revert back to my original scanner. However I am used to good quality flatbed scanner which has probably spoilt me.

This is the second Brother print I've had.
The first at very busy Quantity Surveying practice at which it performed excelantly and without issue. As I then needed a replacement printer at home the choice was very simple.

Perfect for what I need.
This printer is great! Fast, easy to use and it's great that A3 is possible. Very clever.
The wifi is connectivity is excellent and my children love it!
Top marks Brother!

First time buying a Brother product and I am very happy with my purchase. It was perfectly straightforward to set up. I notice some other reviewers say they had problems but I encountered nonesuch and I am no expert.
The quality of the print is about the same as other inkjets I've used but it is the interface that I particularly like. So much easier than most others i have seen.
It's neat. It's not too noisy. The inks are not anywhere near as expensive as others.
I bought it at an excellent offer price and, overall, I am very pleased indeed with machine and the total cost of ownership.
