Good economic printer
Easy to set up although the WIFI connection is not as intuitive as it could be. Speed and quality are good and the large economic ink cartridges a bonus. Reproduction is not perfect to the original for photographic copying but that is not what it is designed for. A good family and small office printer.

Saves me so much time.
Spent half a day hetting use to features, but time well spent as it prints as I like it, on any media I choose. Ideal for day to day prining.
Ink cartridges supplied with machine are small "starter" cartridges, but after 2 weeks of printing - including lots if test images - they are still going strong.
But what really sets this out above any other tech products I've bought recently, is the easily accessible customer services available at the end of the phone, helping me to resolve set-up issues.
I would certainly recommend Brother for this reason alone, but this particular model is also a perfect combination of speed and quality.

Does the job, just!
Looking quite nice but I find that the printing speed is slow, well at least slower than my previous 5 yo printer and sometimes disconnects from the WI-FI and I need to re-insert the password. The printer is quite close to the router.

Awkward to use
I have used Brother printers years ago, always sturdy and reliable. So I had great expectations of this one.
This printer was difficult to use. Half the time will not print, with an error saying there is insufficient memory. Needs computer reboot and several attempts to work.
Not a rapid printer.
Photo quality when using scanner to copy a document is very poor.
Overall, unfortunately, very disappointing.

Useful occasional A3 printing
Reliable old Brother laser printer was tired so replaced with this one for colour and OCCASIONAL A3 printing as most of my printer output is engineering drawings for which the quality is fine.
No problem with easy software compatibility with Windows 7 Enterprise and good Wi-Fi connection.
Not used it for photo printing yet so cannot comment

Good A4 printer with A3 capabilities
My old A3 printer died so decided that an occasional A3 feature would be handy but the smaller footprint of the new printer savers a lot of space.
Good all rounder (scanner and printer) if you don't need to print multiple A3 copies.

I had a Brother printer which used it a lot over a period of six years. I was very satisfied with it so that I chose another Brother printer as a replacement, but I am disappointed for two reasons.
(1) The output tray is very flimsy.
(2) It is difficult to see the touch screen because it is on the side of the machine.

My old printer died and needed a new one quickly. This is my first Brother printer; I was impressed at how easy it was to set up. Double sided printing is a great advantage for me. Still using the ink cartridges supplies with the printer, so no idea how long they will last and have not printed photo quality yet. Ordered it in town and it was delivered the next morning so did not even need to carry it home.
