Great value

I have had this printer for 11 months and it has done a lot of printing. Overall, the print quality is pretty good although you do have to increase the default print quality settings for photos and graphics.

The print speed is very good and the paper handling options are fantastic. 2 x 250 sheet trays, a rear tray for about 50 sheets and a single sheet feed. Also very rare to have any form of paper jam.

Connectivity is good and the cables are nicely hidden way. I do miss the card readers from earlier generation Brother multi-function machines and the scanning does not have a preview screen nor display the image after scanning.

The build quality is excellent but the loose piece on the paper trays is quite silly. Why couldn't this clip in properly or be hinged!

Dual sided scanning is a great idea and works well. The ADF means you need to be careful of objects getting into the works so this is not ideal if there are kids with small toys.

Outstanding value for money and fairly economical to run. Would suit any power home user or small business. Recommended.

This printer is the worst printer I have ever used

When this printer runs out of paper it takes about 15 mins after turning it on and off to get the printer to recognise that it has paper in it. The paper slide that catches the paper just sits there so it is easy to fall down and you have to take out the slide when you fill up the paper tray. When you try to scan it very rarely recognises that your printer is there. I scanned 5 pages of 1 document and it saved it as 5 separate documents not 1 document. I only purchased it a couple of months ago and I am ready to just throw it away and purchase another printer. I purchased it in April this year but didn't set it up until July this year.
