Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very happy customer I have been very happy with my choice of printer. It has been installed wirelessly to my computer for some time now without any mishaps (unlike my previous printer which continually disassociated itself from the computer and had to be re-introduced). Print quality has been good and printing of labels and envelopes carried out without any problem whatsoever. My only problem so far has been with the fax. Having set it up and had it working fine, there seems to be a hiccup which I need to investigate, but I think that it probably has more to do with my technical inexpertise than anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions I wanted a wireless printer so that it could be placed away from the computer and be shared with my desktop and laptop. I also wanted one with the paper tray at the bottom. This printer fitted the requirement. It connected to my modem via wi-fi easily and has connected again reliably after power down. It is also quiet, it scans wirelessly too, unlike some printers. So far very happy with it, but as I do not print photos, I cannot comment on that. I also do not use the fax, but am sure that would be fine judging by the build quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MFC-J3430W This is my third Brother all-in-one, the first which I must have bought 8 or 9 years ago is still working at a friend's pub, the second one was a refurb from Brother and has been thrown away. I recently bought the j3430W. it does what it says, - there are few niggles (see below) it prints documents and photographs well, I dont worry about speed so cant comment, the quality is good. I like the fact that it switches itself off when not in use. The inks supplied with the machine on purchase seem to be very long lasting although as in all matters of ink, the replacements are expensive and a little difficult to find. Makes a funny noise after it prints, no doubt it is self-cleaning. good machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really excellent printer I had a Brother printer before so naturally chose another when I had ro replace. Set-up is so easy and was completed without a hitch. I print a lot of maps to support my walking hobby and the print quality on photo paper and plain paper is superb - maps are really clear and I loose no definition from that on the screen. I also do quite a lot of scanning into Paperport 14 and also OCR for pasting text into Word documents - again, very easy to do and quality is really good. Cartidges are a reasonable price and seem to last for ever! Would certainly recommend the MFC-J430W.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as MFC 465CN I was intending to use this as a wireless printer with a wireless enable PC but hard wired network. It was only after two sessions with support I discovered this is not possible, a fact not explained anywhere in the sales info. I have however kept it. It is much flimsier than the MFC 465CN, and another big problem is that i've had to move the office around because the front panel on this does not hinge up which meant I could not see it. The sheet feeder arrangement is also much less useable. Print quality is poor in some (not readily obvious) siutaions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer I ever had This is my my first "wireless" printer, The setup was starightforward, it works great on a Win 7 laptop and a XP latrop. The speed is amazing, and it scans like a dream On photo paper the results are spectacular. I also downloaded the free Brother iphone app and it also now printos photos staright from my iPhone with minimal set up So brilliant in all departments!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wireless, print , scan, fax, does as expected Print & scan seems OK & easy to set up. Control Centre 4 OK Fax outgoing OK, but set up for receive without interfering with phone line, I have not cracked yet Slightly large, but wireless means does not need to be next to computer, Ink looks OK, but usage not yet established. As a loyal Brother user, not disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use Having used an older Brother printer for many years without problems, I have been delighted with the ease of installation and operation. Apart from a smart design, this wireless printer/copier also makes life very simple and uncomplicated. Excellent quality and speed of printing.
