Outstanding

It is a great printer. I love brother printers. The toner cartridges are way less expensive than their competitors. You definitely get more bang for you buck. Printing is fast and quiet. I am not using it to it's fullest capacity yet due to crunch time I am under. The only thing I would wish ...and this isn't just Brother ...but all manufacturers do that ...in order to get the optional 2nd tray they want your first born...it is almost as much as the printer.

Excellent Performer

I use the printer in a home office. The print quality and speed, both for black only, and for color are outstanding. I've used 3 different paper weights so far, without any jams or other difficulty. For this product to earn that fifth star, it would have to make a lot less noise. The duplex paper handler is way too loud. Access to the rear of the machine for the alternate paper path is inconvenient, but not a show-stopper for me. This is my second Brother printer, and, if this printer does as well as the last one (still working fine after 5+ years), I'll keep coming back.

Glad I made the pruchase

All went well. Setup was easy. I read post that had trouble with setup. They must not follow instructions. The longest part was setting up my computer because it is old and slow.

yeh, the photos are not what you would call excellent but I gave that up for a lot of other things I was looking for like speed in print and scanning.

And the photos I do for business are just fine.

Phenomenal Printer - Unbeatable Value
February 16, 2015
By RSTinAZ from Phoenix, AZ
I am so glad that I purchased this printer. I replaced a non-duplexing, color laser printer from another (probably most popular) printer manufacturer. There is absolutely NO comparison in print quality, print speed, toner efficiency (versus waste), and convenience. My "short answer": I LOVE THIS PRINTER!!!!

In our home we have both Windows and Mac computers... both of which work flawlessly with the printer and were very easy to setup over the wireless network. I have not tried any of the mobile printing applications, so I can't comment. Being able to scan documents to AND print from the major cloud-storage services is very cool... although I don't make use of those features often. Perhaps over time I will determine how to integrate those capabilities to improve my workflow.

There are 2 things that I will recommend... [1] if you submit a print job that will produce a large number of printed pages - which is easy to do because of the high capacity paper tray - be aware that the output tray is limited and may start pushing papers out of the tray when full. [2] If you are wanting to update the firmware of the printer, don't use the software utility provided the Brother website but rather connect to the printer via your internet browser and the printer's IP address (192.168.1.xxx) and update the firmware using the web-based interface to the printer.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a big & heavy printer... so just prepare accordingly.
