Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine Fantastic machine glad I bought this when I did specially for the A3 size printing
Date published: 2019-01-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and Bad Good value if you need to do A3, but when printing it is very noisy I think its too slow. My main gripe is that although I use wireless for printing and this always works, when it comes to scanning it invariably says no connection and I have to turn it or my computer on and off. I have just downloaded some more software so see if that works. As now obsolete unless you can get it very cheap chose another machine

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Printer but reliability issue Easy to use and versatile with great print and scan quality up to A3. However after only 2 sets of print cartridges the printer failed to turn on by pressing the power button alone. There is a work around shown on you tube. however the number of hits and mostly objective comments suggest that this is a common issue. A product should be fit for purpose for a reasonable period of time (even beyond warranty) and as such it would perhaps be appropriate for Brother to recognise the issue and publish a returns / fix process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for small businesses I bought one of these 2 and a half years ago when I set up on my own as an architectural designer and caricature artist. The caricatures scan in very well and the reproduction on paper is a very good quality. On the Architectural side I produce dwgs for presentation in 2d & 3d again the quality has not let me down. The fast print quality is good enough to take to meetings to discuss designs with clients at the early stages of a project. The ink seems to be reasonable value One downside is that I have had a couple of ink blockages which have taken a few head cleaning sessions to clear which is costly in terms of ink. On the whole a good machine. I would buy another if I needed to

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good all-in-one A good all-in-one printer with a nice retro design. It is very fast and so far seems trouble free. The ink cartridges are good value for money. I don't find it a noisy as some people say. I bought mine on a good offer, so stood above its competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves al problems in one machine I bought this machine for two reasons - Firstly I wanted an all in one wireless machine for printing and scanning that had a sheet feeder. Having reviewed many others I chose this for my second reason - price. I've now been using it for a few weeks and can honestly say that there's nothing that I don't rate about it. OK, it could always be a little faster and it's a big beast but then I want it all...... Great value and all my problems solved in one go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother A3 Printer This product is easy to use and provides good quality printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what it says on the box The only thing I can say about the printer, is that it could use a second paper tray to make it easier to switch between paper sizes, but to be fair, it's not that much of a hardship for me as I don't do that much A3 printing.
