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.

Very disappointed, had high hopes

By 

from Reno, NV, United States

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

it prints regular copy paper very slowly (set at normal settings), it has great trouble printing 4" x 6" photos. I went and bought exactly the paper the manual suggests, and still, it won't feed properly, only works if I insert 1 page into the feeder at a time, and it is a battle to produce photos. Good scanning and nice computer interface

Great quality prints but an ink miser!!!

By 

from Utah, United States

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

I have owned several different types of all in one printers over the years. I have used them personally and for a small in home business. This one is my favorite so far. It has beautiful quality prints but uses very little ink. I love how cheap the ink is as well. With other printers, you might as well buy a new printer as to purchase all new ink cartridges. This one cost a little more up front than I have paid in the past but was well worth it for the reduced ink replacement cost. I like the simple touch screen interface and the ease with which I was able to set it up with my home network, including my daughter's Chromebook and our smartphones. It has so far been my best printer purchase to date and I have owned these types of printers since they first came on the home use market about 15 years ago.

Why Haven't I Bought One of These Before???

By 

from Anderson, SC

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

I have bought a number of printers over the years but this is the first Brother printer that I've owned. I am totally impressed. I set this up as both a wired printer (company provided laptop prohibits wireless installation) and as a wireless. It was quick and easy. I easily direct prints from my own laptop, tablet and Android phone. At the same time, my wife is doing the same with her iPhone and iPad. Print quality is excellent. Depending on the size of the print, there may be a slight delay but it is not a consequence. The other thing that I noticed is that it does not use much ink at all yet the output is wonderful. I use this in my home office for both after hours work and personal use. If this printer is being used in a workplace, one of the other models with a higher capacity of paper might be preferable. For home use, this is without a doubt the best printer I've ever purchased.

Strange

By 

from Vancouver, WA, United States

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

I have not used the printer very much since its recent purchase. But there are some strange things: first, when I initially begin to print my PC indicates that it is off line--which it isn't...and then soon afterwards the printer comes into action. Second, I hooked up the phone jack and yesterday the phone conversation that was on our house phone was on the printer--but I could only hear it and not engage in that conversation, so I took the jack out of the wall socket. And last, the printer is rather noisy and reminds me a bit of the old bit printers that were similarly noisy. But IT PRINTS, thankfully, and is not giving me problems that I had with two recent ones which are now recycled.

Good printer but wireless Connection needs work

By 

from Manchester, NH, United States

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

I purchased this printer because I want to print from my iPad and because it has long lasting ink. It performs well with the latter but I still have troubles printing wirelessly. The printer doesn't show up on AirPrint and I can print using the brother app but have to turn the printer off and on for it to show on the network.

So far so good

By 

from Portland, OR, United States

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

I have used my new Brother printer for about a month now and have been happy with its performance. Setup was easy and print and photo quality has been good. I really have enjoyed being able to printing double sided and using the automatic document feeder. I hope the cost of operation will be as low as advertised.
