I bought this printer to replace a Brother A3 printer which no longer suited my needs. I am very pleased with the results so far.
My only small regret is that you cannot insert just a single sheet of paper or an envelope without removing the paper tray.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good print quality but slow to print. Takes ages for printer to come to life after asking document to print. Have not tried scanner or copier yet. My one big problem is that it is extremely difficult to install on any computer. The instructions are mostly useless as they are badly translated from another language. I thought it would take maybe 20 minutes to install...more like 2 hours after repeatedly connecting it my wifi network and finally connecting my laptop to it rather than through the software. I can't make it work with my husband's notebook at all as it doesn't have a cd drive and the software will not download from the internet correctly, again hours wasted. Also will not connect to my phone either. So much for WIFI !! I'm going to have to use the USB connection. Don't waste your time.
No, I do not recommend this product.

after struggling for years with my last printer and forking out for expensive ink cartridges it's a pleasure to get an affordable printer and at such a reasonable price without compromising on quality

Bought this recently for its wireless printing abilities as we wanted to be able to print from our Google Nexus tablet , our I Pad mini and a laptop running Windows 7.
Found the setup procedure to be a bit laborious and the enclosed instructions a bit vague. I think Brother should take a look at producing a more simplified manual for users who are new to wireless printing.
It took me almost 3 hours to set it up. A couple of times I was on the point of phoning Brother help-line but I carried on and eventually I got it set up and I was delighted with the outcome.
It is fairly fast in mono mode but quite a bit slower in colour
mode. So far I am happy wit my purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

J was looking for a reliable printer/scanner to work with my Mac mini at my office. Tests J read on the internet led me to Brother. Its software can be installed using the very precise CD instructions and it co-operates with my computer very well. Print speed is a little less than J imagined, but the quality is very good.
If it lasts long, J will have found the company to purchase Mac printers also in the future!

This product has many great features. It prints fast and responds to screen prompts without delay. Colour production is very good and produces good quality results. All the adverts for events at my club are produced in colour and they are eye catching in bright bold colours so are easily noticed and read when displayed on notice boards.

My old printer died a natural death after 10 years of good service and looking for a replacement one I was advised to purchase a Brother. I can print easily and cheaply and can also copy and scan when I need to and I am delighted by its simplicity and efficiency. What could be better for a retired ex-professional person like myself who came into computing late in life? I would certainly recommend this product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this unit to replace a previous Brother unit, a DCP-J315W. On balance I feel slightly disappointed, the previous one was slightly better. Installation was more complicated,and the unit is noisier. I have had to go through a learning curve to get the new one running but now that it is my only real concern is how noisy and rough it sounds.
I think Brother could do better in a number of ways - for example standardizing the ink cartridges. So in esssence I'm satisfied but not delighted.
Yes, I recommend this product.

When my last inkjet printer's paper-feed ceased to work - after only 3-4 years - I bought this model on the recommendation of my local office/computer retailer. I'm glad I did and have had no problems with it
Connection, via Wi-fi, was very simple. It looks neat, though it has a large footprint. I like fact that the paper is hidden away in a (max) 100 sheet paper feed and for small runs printing is easily collected without extending the collection tray. The top and back of the machine both open for access in case of paper mis-feeds: though I haven't had a single jam yet.
Printing is not as fast as with the previous brand - but as this is for use in the home it is not really a problem. The print quality for documents is excellent. Photo printing is only adequate.
Published reviews claimed this model is noisy - but the volume is far less that of the previous brand and it is silent when booting up the computer. The last one clanked away for quite a while on boot up and presumably used ink as it did so.
Yes, I recommend this product.
