Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice printer. Good clear print out. Had to set up with Brother download because no disc on my laptop. Easy but rather lengthy. Very good on wireless operation but a bit more difficult on direct copying. Havn't scanned yet so no report there. One thing missing is no back light on panel, it really does need one. Be aware the footprint needed is more than you may think because of the paper tray which pulls out and if you use wireless the you must leave it out all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than inkjet My current inkjet printer constantly needs the ink replaced, and not because it was used a lot, quite the opposite. To my disappointment I have found out that even though you are not ‘using’ your printer the ‘ink’ is slowly disappearing before your eyes ! Not so with the Brother Laser Printer. Because it contains Toner it’s only used when the printer is physically “on” so it actually works out better ! Better quality printing, quicker printing, and the best of all Cheaper printing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Brotherly love Upon opening and setting up, I noticed that the quality of the new product was not as good as our previous Brother machine. Plastic is very cheap, paper tray very flimsy. The machine was listed as having a fax facility, sadly there is NO FAX facility. You can scan or copy 1 page at a time, as well as print. There is no auto duplex and so two sided printing is manual. The display screen is very hard to read even in daylight, so have had to install a clip on spot light. Avoid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful printer is this !!! The design is very smooth and strong made. Very fast and clear in printing. I think it prints every sec one page. It has copy, print , scan etc fuctions. Great for office use and also for home. It doesn't make loud noises. This printer has wireless function and auto off function. TOTALLY NO NEED CONNECTION WIRE !!! Just you need to set up as wireless. The instruction also very easy. I would recommend it and veryyyyyyyyy happy with this product .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and reliable,great features Easy to set up ,works more or less straight out of the box,comes with full instructions which are easily followed,once the software is installed on your computer and the ink cartridge installed ,away you go,scans in full colour to your specified folder and prints very fast,page after page,approx 5 seconds /page, reasonable ink cartridge cost and you get plenty of pages per cartridge. Excellent iOS and android app to print straight from your phone, wireless enabled,excellent product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All in one printer There was no instruction manual included in the box, so sussing out how to scan items was a major setback. I think the inclusion of an instruction manual should be mandatory. I found one on the internet, but it's 84 pages long... Other than that photocopying is easy - printing is good. Happy with the purchase because I will use it primarily for printing and photocopying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for money. Excellent printer. If you don't need colour print (and be honest how frequently do you actual need colour) this is excellent value for money. Network & WiFi works fine and scanning is good. Would definitely recommend.
