All-in-one A3 printers are rare beasts so find one below £300 and one is prepared to accept a few compromises.

It's true that the black may not be as intense as some other printers but apart from that it is difficult to criticise this printer.

For me A3 copying is perhaps the most important feature since I justified buying the Brother purely on the basis of what I spend at copy shops. Here the Brother excels at producing fast, accurately scaled copies in black and white as well as colour. Printing at A3 size is also surprisingly fast.

The fact that the printer has a tray for A4 as well means it could easily serve as a single office printer/copier.

Installation was child's play including configuring wi-fi networking and at no time during the process did the printer need to be cable-connected to a computer. All computers on the network could be configured to use the Brother simply by installing the Brother software.

I can't vouch for any of the Brother-supplied utilities because I don't need them but everything on the driver-side works perfectly.

Finally the on-printer touch screen is very user-friendly and allows several favourite copy and scan settings to be stored.

The printer is surprisingly compact considering what is does and its design is very pleasing to the eye.

Reliability may be an issue in the future but so far it has worked perfectly.

Update:-

Well I've been using this printer for nearly 6 months now and, if anything, I am even more impressed than I was. Remarkably, I am still on the original cartridges, the black has 25% remaining and the others have 50%. In 6 months my Lexmark would be on its 3rd cartridges by now.

I've had my Brother DCP-6690CW inkjet A3 printer for around 6 months and printed probably 100 A4 pages of photo paper (photographs) and some A3 ones, and used scanning and copying. The Brother printer is really exceptionally good value, and I'd like to illustrate just some of the features in this video. Let me know if I showed the things you were interested in, and feel free to ask any questions - which I'll answer if I can.

Bought this multifunction printer a few weeks ago and, I must say that I am very pleased with it. It is a heavy machine and extremely well built, produces good results and is pretty fast.

Printing - letters etc are printed very quickly, the ink is even and the results good, however compared to my Canon MP800 the ink is not a black and the words look a little faded. Nevertheless the result is quite satisfactory if not perfect.

Printing photographs - A4 size again good but always a bit dark and with a slight lack of detail compared to the Canon. Prints quite fast and with an even finish, however the Canon is certainly better here. A3 colour prints are also a bit dark and need some tweeking to get right.

Scanning is excellent and fast particularly the feeder rather than the glass plate though I have yet to try scanning a colour photo.

Inks are easy to fit and there are no chips to worry about if you use other makes. Inks are also very cheap and seem to last well. One thing to note - as yet there is no-one making a continuous ink system for this printer which is a shame as I use one for the Canon MP800 and it is brilliant - best bit of printer hardware I have ever bought!

There are one or two gripes - firstly the software supplied with the printer (for printing photos etc)is poor, difficult to use, complicated and, compared to the Canon software, is rubbish! Canon really do have excellent photo printing software. Secondly the need to adjust sizes and centre everything in the feed trays (eg. envelopes) is a pain so I just leave A3 paper in try 1 and A4 in tray 2 and use my Canon for photo prints and envelopes - much easier! If you do only have the Brother printer it is not really a problem but it just takes time to have to reset everything in the feed trays each time you wish to change paper or sizes.

Really these are fairly minor gripes and, in general I would recommend the printer if you need an A3 model

The Good : Brilliant 2 tray printer - ideal for a small office where you might want to feet letter heads in the top tray and plain paper in the bottom tray OR for really small offices like mine A3 in the bottom tray and A4 in the top. Don't expect to tuck it into the corner of your desk though. Of all household appliances only the washing machine is bigger than this although ironically I bought this machine to save space as I got rid of my A4 and A3 printers and it is better than both put together. I expect it to be reliable - the previous MFC printer lasted long after I wanted it to as I don't like to chuck things out that still work even though they're obsolete. So far it's been reliable except for occasional paper jams.

The Bad: - like my previous brother printer scans are pale reflection of original image and if you scan something pale like a map with pale contours etc on it there is very significant loss of image. This is probably the only significant fault on this printer given that in other respects it's a perfect small business/office machine

Again like my previous Brother printer It's hopeless for printing photos. They are lifeless and colour is a long way out. Quality is nowhere remotely close to a chemical process but then that's all you should reasonably expect from a 4 colour cartridge office printer.

summary - great for small office/students but not so good for home use.
