Good size - works well
March 30, 2014
By Greatprinter from Erie, PA
We have had this printer for a few months now and it has worked as expected. I have not experienced the circuit problems that others cited. It connects easily to an iphone and iPad.

Sad Instructions, Bad OSX 10.9 driver, good iPhone
March 16, 2014
By ElectricalEngineer2
As an Electrical Engineer for 30 years, you would think it would be quick and easy to setup this network ready printer. Not the case. Setup instructions were disjointed, incomplete and difficult to find.

I currently have one other Brother printer (hard wired) to my network and one HP color inkjet with scanning features.

Once I figured out on my own how to wirelessly connect the printer to my network, our iPads and iPhones made easy connections without adding any drivers or other software apps. AirPrint worked but there were no readily available options to auto-duplex. Although I am currently searching for a users manual on the web (only a product safety guide and ridiculous quick setup guide came with the product).

I am currently searching for a way to set up auto duplexing. Since no documentation is readily available, I am shuddering to think about using a ridiculous one-line lcd screen mounted on the computer to try and find the auto-duplex setting, if available.

The other major problem is that for my new iMac with OSX 10.9.2, the driver was not on the CD supplied with the product. Instructions were very confusing and vague about where to get the proper driver. Since I already had another Brother printer, I went to the Brother Solutions website and searched for the proper driver for my Computer's Operating System version. At this point I found very limited options for the printer; in fact, there is no auto duplex option available. This would be very handy for software that does not allow selection of 2-sided printing.

This is my 3rd Brother printer. The 2nd printer I had has been reliable; but the first one had to be replaced and would not print after one toner cartridge. I wanted to try Brother again based on other reasonable reviews for reliability and MAC compatibility. .... My thoughts on MAC compatibility are incomplete at this point since the iPhones and iPads print to it nicely, with the exception of having readily available options to duplex. The MAC problem may be due to poor wireless driver options from Brother. Maybe Brother will update the driver for 10.9.2 in the future (sooner is better).

Overall: The concept is good. Print quality is fine if you are looking for a brute printer with toner at a reasonable price. iPhone and iPad compatibility is acceptable. But if you need a driver for OSX 10.9.2 with good control options, forget it for the present.

Good upgrade
February 13, 2014
By RDS837 from Upstate NY
Upgrade from 5370DW. Easy to set up and easy to network wirelessly. Only complaint is that the machine is a bit noisy when printing.
