Rated 5 out of 5 by from A3 scan/copy/print, brilliant Looking for piece of reliable equipment to print/ scan and copy up to A3 size, then this is a brilliant machine, many similar and more expensive machines can not scan the A3 size, this does and enables me to do planning application work with ease. It runs very quietly and has a great print speed. The touchscreen menu is intuitive, clear and easy to use, scanning to my computer can be achieved in several formats and the wireless facility is useful around the property for multiple users. The separate ink cartridges were easy to fit and the high resolution printing was a bonus when I was comparing the Epsom workforce printer. I would strongly recommend this machine .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New printer v old printer Recently purchased this printer to replace an older DCP - 6690CW and to be honest I don't think its as good. There are issues with its compatibility with my Apple operating system OSX 10.9.4 and certain features only work in the Brother Centre and not on my screen icons. Can still access all I need but a lot more long winded. Printing is slower, don't think the quality is as good and its a lot noisier ! Some of this could just be teething problems and I will be speaking to the support team about this but I have had my old printer serviced / minor fault fixed and will seriously think of going back to using that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is definitely the one to get! I wanted an A3 printer at home after my retirement, but was surprised to find that they almost all had an A4 scanner bed, which seems a bit of a specification flaw to me. This Brother printer really hit the spot, with a very quick A3 scanner and a useful Nuance PDF / Print software package included. This allows you to add or delete pages in PDF as well as mark up etc and a smart OCR, exactly as I had been used to in my office. The two paper cassettes add a new dimension to home printing and the auto-feed bed is a real treat. I am so pleased I found this model and have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone looking for a professional standard printer at home computing prices!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for A3 work When Windows 10 all but did for my laser printer, scanner and A3 inkjet printer and the manufacturers would not support Windows 10, I had to look for some replacements. I was very pleased to find an A3 printer which would also scan A3, with a sheet feeder and duplex to boot. I've gained several features and saved some desk space. Very pleased so far. I could say paper tray 2 looks a bit fragile, particularly as it has to be opened up to take A3, and the scanner lid closes with a bit of a crash, but with care I look forward to many years' use (until the next Windows version).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for a small business I have been working from home for a couple of years and have 2 main printers. A HP Mono Laser for general work and the Brother for colour and more important documents. Being an A3 printer, im able to print large drawings of as well as scan / photocopy customer documents for my annotation. Very impressed with the build quality, far more superior to older models I have owned. I purchased mine based on a family members recommendation but managed to get it £100 cheaper so for me its value you for money! Colour print quality could be a little better for a normal print but its good on best and when using good quality paper. Happy with my purchase. Hope it lasts longer than the 3yr insurance though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and loads of features My wife and I are retired but are both heavily involved in various organisations so find ourselves doing more home printing than when we worked full time! In particular we felt that we needed to add A3 capability to enable us to produce posters. Our previous printer was fine but did not have anything like the amount of features this one has and when it began to go wrong we decided to upgrade. We have only been using the printer for a couple of weeks but are already well impressed by the quality of printing and scanning. The ink cartridges are way cheaper per unit than our last printer although we have yet to find out how often we will need to replace them. All in all we feel this was a very good buy for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Printer Having looked for some time for an affordable A3 Scanner /Printer . I found the Brother MFC- J67200W. Whilst it is quite a chunky machine the features are excellent. I use it for document production in both A4 and A3 and cannot fault it in either mode. The wireless feature means I can use both my desk top machine and laptop without having to use cables. The print quality is very good and the auto print two sides feature saves having to take the paper out and reverse it. I would definitely recommend this machine to any one who needs both A$ and A£ print and scan facility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more than I was expecting I bought this printer to replace a long in the tooth Epson. This has exceeded my expectations in bucket loads... Quick, good quality prints, no more changing paper from A4 to A3 cos it has 2 trays. Then the A3 copier, wow, how useful is that! I have just discovered today that it allows sequential scanning of individual pages into one file, again, how useful is that... and I am sure there will be more features that I will discover along the way. I am seriously impressed.
