Rated 4 out of 5 by from DCP-J152W Bought this recently for its wireless printing abilities as we wanted to be able to print from our Google Nexus tablet , our I Pad mini and a laptop running Windows 7. Found the setup procedure to be a bit laborious and the enclosed instructions a bit vague. I think Brother should take a look at producing a more simplified manual for users who are new to wireless printing. It took me almost 3 hours to set it up. A couple of times I was on the point of phoning Brother help-line but I carried on and eventually I got it set up and I was delighted with the outcome. It is fairly fast in mono mode but quite a bit slower in colour mode. So far I am happy wit my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great piece of officewear i got given the Brother DCP J152W as a replacement for a faulty DCP 195c. and i have to say it is 10 times better. its super easy to set up and get get started and the the wireless printing was a first for me and i have to say its a genius idea. also being able to connect ipads, phones and other gadgets to the printer to be able to print when out and about is brilliant. only down side is that the print quality isnt the best, colours always come out less vivid than they do on other bigger more professional printers. but it is bareable. and also the printer is compatible to LC121 and also LC123 inks but i couldn't get my head around why LC123 cost so much more?? If anyone can explain please comment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm glad my old Brother broke down! After many years of sterling service my old Brother printer finally gave up the ghost and I was devastated! Faced with having to replace it I checked out the various alternative manufacturers and models, and finally settled on the DCPJ152W. The salesman warned me that even though the old Brother was a good one I should expect to see a remarkable improvement - and he was so, so right! I cannot fault my old printer - but this new one is fantastic! It is very quick, very quiet and the print / copy / scan quality is exceptional. I cannot recommend it highly enough - a brilliant machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install I took the printer out of the box, loaded the cartridges and then slotted the CD into my tower computer - within minutes I was up and running. After that I loaded the software onto my laptop and that worked successfully. I didn't have to do anything to my iPad it worked perfectly without any intervention. Wireless technology is Wonderful!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Printer! I had a brother printer which was excellent and served me very well and has never given me any problems.I bought an iPad and have experienced problems with printing from it as it is not compatible with my printer. My Father asked me what I wanted for Christmas, so of course I said - an air printer. I bought a Brother air printer which I have to say is fabulous and it is still a novelty to be able to sit on my settee with my Ipad and see the print emerge on the printer the other side of the room!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced my previous printer I bought this unit to replace a previous Brother unit, a DCP-J315W. On balance I feel slightly disappointed, the previous one was slightly better. Installation was more complicated,and the unit is noisier. I have had to go through a learning curve to get the new one running but now that it is my only real concern is how noisy and rough it sounds. I think Brother could do better in a number of ways - for example standardizing the ink cartridges. So in esssence I'm satisfied but not delighted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but hard to install. Good print quality but slow to print. Takes ages for printer to come to life after asking document to print. Have not tried scanner or copier yet. My one big problem is that it is extremely difficult to install on any computer. The instructions are mostly useless as they are badly translated from another language. I thought it would take maybe 20 minutes to install...more like 2 hours after repeatedly connecting it my wifi network and finally connecting my laptop to it rather than through the software. I can't make it work with my husband's notebook at all as it doesn't have a cd drive and the software will not download from the internet correctly, again hours wasted. Also will not connect to my phone either. So much for WIFI !! I'm going to have to use the USB connection. Don't waste your time.
