Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't stay connected to internet for printing Worst printer in terms of having to power it down and up again for it to reconnect with internet, even though it shows connectivity. Much time wasted trying to get wireless printing

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy transition from old to new Brother printer I like that PaperPort/Scan is same. I want to use Airport printing from iPhone but can’t login to my WiFi router to finish setup. It definately slower than our older commercial quality printer but price was right. Scanning is easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate This is a nice machine. The only problem I have, every so often it tells me I am out of ink. Knowing I've not used it that much, I pull the cartridges out, reinsert and then it shows all of them almost full.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Printer Finally, a printer with a small footprint that make two-sided printing easy. And - it orders its own ink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ink use much lower, quality prints, easy to use, best buys

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp Prints. Scanning could be improved The printing functions are fine. I have an issue with scan with the ADF. It doesn't seem to position the scan properly as it consistent cuts off the top of the page. This means I have to use the page-by-page flat bed scan and that's a pain.
