Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-J552W Having researched all-in-one printers on the internet within our price range, my wife and I decided on the J552W for several reasons. 1) it connects wirelessly,and can therefore be accessed by both our PC and Tablet, 2) the copy facility has the ability to enlarge/decrease the size of the copy in steps of 1%, which is important to my wife who is a Textile Artist 3) It has a small footprint, and 4) I particularly like the ability to configure all the functions by use of the Control Centre 4 software. All in all we are both pleased with our purchase .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic printer The is my second Brother Printer. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my first one, even after 5 years of constant use. I have recycled it to my Son. The only reason for the change was to upgrade to a wireless printer to use multiple devices on. .i.e. iphone, ipad, imac. The printer has not disappointed. It accepts data rapidly and prints it clearly and very quickly. A truly first class printer representing excellent value for money. Well done Brother.,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-J552W I have been using this machine now for about a month and so far it has literally done "what it says on the tin". I did have an initial problem in setting it up because I use 2 computers fused into 1 screen via a junction box. The copier had a problem recognising the USB leads into the junction box and so I now just take the leads out and connect the machine to whichever computer is in use. However, apart from this, I am very pleased with its operational functions so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good decision Having used Brother products before and been extremely happy I went with them when my old printer finally packed up after many years of good service.. Prices for this type of equipment have pleasantly really dipped since I bought the last one but the price I have paid for this excellent product has made it a real bargain. I already know that Brother after sales service is second to none so that part of the decision was really a 'no brainer;. Thanks again Brother.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cracking Little All In One Very reasonable for the money, and you are given a decent amount of ink to get you started, unlike other manufacturers I could mention. The text quality isn't as crisp as a laser printer, but I didn't expect it to be. Photo quality is very good, might not suit a professional photographer, but it's good enough for me. To top it all off it's wireless. I'm pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer for reasonable price I bought this printer because I did some research and it was supposed to be among the best printers for economic usage of ink, and as I do a great amount of printing I had been spending a fortune on ink with my previous printer. So far I have been very pleased with the time the ink lasts and have also been pleased with the print quality, both for printing documents off my computer and copying documents directly. I wasn't sure if I would like the bottom-loading tray for the paper but actually I haven't found it a problem so far - in fact it is very easy to load. The touch-screen display is clearly and intuitively laid out, and I have also found it extremely easy to change the ink cartridges. Overall a great printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-J552DW A smart and compact looking printer. Setup was easy, virtually a quick read of the instructions, plug it in, run cd and away you go. Printing was reasonably quick and quiet. Photographs were quite sharp with good colours. The touch screen was clearly laid out and easy to use. Duplex printing is very handy. Wireless connectivity was a bit of a bonus though at present not essential for me. My only niggle was scanning. Where printer was placed I couldn't see reference markings to place document but otherwise the scan was good. A very user friendly printer
