Excellent value for money
If the specification of this machine is good enough for you (no Wifi nor Ethernet connectivity) it is a very good buy. I have had mine for three weeks now and the following are the salient plus points: >small footprint >good speed for print, scan and copy >good quality output for small office purposes >fully Mac OSX 10.9 compatible with downloaded drivers, software and manuals installing faultlessly and printing out easily >generally quiet. Minus points: >slight rattling noise when duplexing >stopped in the middle of a print run with the 'out of paper' warning showing when there was still plenty of paper left. This problem was covered in the User's Guide, the recommended fix worked and the problem has not recurred.

Very happy with this Brother all-in-one
Now that I have the ability to copy and scan as well as print, I don't know how I managed without. I chose Brother because I'd used a previous model at work for scanning - and found it easy to use. This model too is simple and efficient. At first it looks big, but doesn’t really take up much space. One other feature I like - the duplex.

The printer is fast, and does a good job on double-sided printing. The print quality is good. The printer is also light in weight, and east to lift and move. After printing, it goes into silent standby mode, so does not disturb.

Best Documentation and Set-up CD.
I was delighted with my new printer, which has fulfilled all my expectations. I was most impressed with the Documentation and C/D, which came with the printer. I was surprised by how much thought had been put in to this aspect, which made setting up my new printer simplicity in itself, quickly and with absolutely no headaches, for me an amateur.
Thus I would congratulate BROTHER for an excellent product and the packaged documentaion and set-up C/D, which I could not fault.

Great Value duplex printer
This printer is an excellent value duplex printer with fast printing speeds and the added advantage of being a copier and scanner. The software included allows you to easily manage scanned documents on your PC and it is compact enough for a small home office. The only downside I have found is that occasionally when printing envelopes it does not always clear the print queue and is still expecting a manual feed even after the envelope has printed successfully. I have found that you need to switch the printer off and on again to clear this.

Does all I need
Good price for purchase and toner, so good price per page. Quality mono print, plus auto duplex and scanning so works neatly as a double-sided photocopier (although you have to turn the original over yourself). It will work across a network, but the computer it's plugged into locally has to be switched on. Slowish to first page, but fast thereafter. Good "Deep Sleep" mode to save the planet.

Almost too good to be true...
I have been delighted with the scanner/printer. It was very easy to set up, continues to be easy to run and to work with. The quality of the scanning took me by surprise, it is so good, and I've found myself using it more than I expected. For example, I scanned a pile of faded, century-old family photographs, and the scans were far better than the originals.

Easy to use
I bought this product as a replacement for an older Brother printer that needed to be retired. It has all the features one would expect from a Brother product and it 'does what it says on the tin,' so to speak. I needed primarily a printer so I'm very satisfied with it. The only thing I would have liked, and it's my fault for not checking more closely, would have been a feeder tray.But no matter, this is fine. If you are a heavy user though, be aware that the ink cartridge only lasts for 1200 pages.
