Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some great features, but a bit slow printing photos This is the first printer I have had that can print double sided - and that's a plus for a home office or small business and saves paper. It was easy to set up using instructions on the touchscreen. Menus are easy to navigate. Print quality is good, although I find that printing photos is a little slow. There is a slot at the front of the machine for SD cards and a USB port. Good product for the price. I'm happy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not scan on Win 7 computer I cannot get it to scan from the printer nor will it scan from the computer. Brother support said it will not scan on my windows 7 computer. It's the windows software (obviously).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never buy another printer brand ever again This printer is amazing. Why? Because unlike its competitors, it does its job without throwing errors up in your face every time you use it. *Never disconnects from wireless network. Ever. It is always ready to use. No more resetting your router to get your printer working again. *Works flawlessly with Apple Airprint. *No paper jams of any kind, unlike some printers which say there is a paper jam when there isn't. *Goes into sleep mode by itself to save energy, but is woken up by any print request or interaction with it. Sleep mode never causes a disconnect. *Print/scan quality is fantastic. Every time. *Software provided with it is very useful and not bloated. One control panel allows you to scan or copy something that is currently in the printer, remotely. *Print cartridges are reasonably priced. *Ink usage is very economical *Looks great *Competitively priced for home printer, but underpriced considering how much better it is than others in its price range. I wish I had bought a Brother printer sooner, it would have saved me a lot of hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J870DW I bought the MFC-J870DW to replace an ageing scanner and printer based on reviews on various web sites. I must admit that I have been very impressed with the product. The quality exceeded my expectations and it was easy to set up the device to share with 3 separate computers and an i-phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Theprinter is great but...... The printer is great but the WiFi seems to cause problems with my BT Home Home4, which means I can only switch the printer on when it is required instead of leaving on stand by all the time. Other than this I am happy with the Brother printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all round performer. I carried out a lot of online research prior to purchasing, and the product has matched very closely my pre conceived expectations. Print quality is above average for a multi function printer, build quality is acceptable and consumables (generic cartridges) are well priced and work. The only slight negative is the speed of print, but for the majority of home printing it is more tha good enough; if you were regularly printing 20+ copies of documents, this is probably not for you.
