I've only been using the printer for about 2 weeks, which means there's a lot of features I have yet to explore. Here's what I can say so far. 1) Packaging of the item seemed solid. 2) How many times have we complained that setup or installation instructions were hard to understand? Not with this product. You can tell Brother takes great care in communicating with the customer & it's reflected in the setup instructions. Very easy to understand. 3) My laptop doesn't have a built-in CD drive, so I chose to download the installation package from Brother's website, which is probably the best thing to do anyway, considering you don't know how long the product has been on the shelf before you finally purchase the product & in between those times, updates to the software may have occurred. Downloading assures you of the most up-to-date software. 4. I was blown away at the speed of printing on this unit. It spit out my first printed job so fast - I thought something went wrong. But I looked at the paper & it was all there. The image looked clear & sharp as well. I use this for business & most of what I'm going to be printing is text - letters, labels, etc. 5. The paper tray seems a little light & not as sturdy as I would have expected, so I hope that over time as I pull the tray out & push it back in to change the paper, it will hold up. 6. I receive one or two emails a week from Brother (I chose this option when registering the product) to inform me of news & latest updates, etc. 7. When you logon to your computer each day, you'll see a small call-out box just above the status bar - far right. It says, "Brother Help," which is a nice feature, should you need a quick answer on something. You can "X" out the box & make it disappear if you don't want it to stay visible throughout the day. So far, I'm very impressed with the printer. I still can't believe how fast this prints - it's lightning fast.

I've only had it a couple of weeks. Functionally it is very solid and runs well so far... but, there are a few things that I should warn others about. To hook it up via wire, both the network port and USB port are located in the center of the middle of the unit - you need to lift the entire scanner portion up to plug it in, then run the cables along a guide inside the machine leading out the back - very odd design. Every other printer I have used across the decades has ports on the outside. The quality of the print is pretty mediocre and the finished print is not very dark at all. Perhaps this is how the 'inkvestment' tech works to save you ink? Still, I've had cheap throwaway printers with better print quality to be honest. The printer tray has to be completely pulled out of the machine entirely and put on your desk in order to load paper, which is also odd in my opinion. I have not tried the fax portion but scanning is a breeze with one exception: in the scanner software (Control Center 4,) it uses a 'retry' or 'reload' icon to represent cropping instead of the typical frame corner icon you would expect, which is also on the help documentation. Once I figured out this error it runs great.

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

Do not like the paper drawer system. Prefer a simple straight feed for paper so that you can flip the sheet to print on back.

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

Printer is loaded with more options than I need, however every thing I have used has performed perfectly. Text is great, wifi connection great, iPrint is great. What led be to purchase this printer is the ink savings and so far I am totally satisfied.

Great Printer

By 

from St. Louis County, MO, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

This Brother works Great. Do not use Fax at this time. Printed approx.50 sheets and hardly used any ink+. Had a Brother for school use and was very happy with it, then went to HP big mistake... The reason why I am giving it a 4 is the difficulty in setting up...I am NOT TEC savvy... took me over a hour to set up...have not used for pics yet , will soon

Disappointed

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

More than adequate printing speeds for b&w and color pages. Ink cartridge prices (advertised as) affordable. However, the color prints looked washed out even with print dialogue adjustments (i.e., Best, Color Enhancement, and the like). Happy to return the product to the store within the store's 15-day return policy.

Mostly good, some puzzles

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

Comparison with old Canon mx300. Have used the Brother printer hardwired to the computer (W10) for about one month. Positives: print speed, hook up ease, ink economy, the Canon was very thirsty. Puzzles: getting the rear feeder to accept postcards, sometimes ok other times not, post cards work ok from the paper holder, the Canon would digest about anything it was fed; the Brother install cd loaded the install files but would not work, found and used files from the Brother website; terminating print jobs, the Canon had easy on-screen Canon control panel command , the Brother requires going into computer settings, suggest adding this feature to the Brother control panel; paper capacity, the Canon would hold about 1/2 ream, the Brother about an 8 mm stack, might be inconvenient for larger jobs. Color rendering seems a bit better with the Brother than the Canon. Overall a good unit, economical on ink, just a bit less user friendly than the Canon. Have not tried wireless printing or fax software. Have not attempted attaching to the Linux Mint laptop. Hope this is helpful.

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

I bought this printer in Nov. Less than a month later the ink absorber pad full appeared on the display. I called support and they said I could return the printer to Brother or send it off to get fixed. I opted to return it and have a new printer delivered. Now 2 moths later the same thing has happen with the new printer!! I think I will try another brand

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

I set up the printer, connected to my network, printed some documents. One week later, tried to print but printer was off line. Called support they had me uninstall and re-install printer driver, but that didn't work. As I write this, the printer is useless. Save yourself some money and get a printer that is truly WIFI capable.
