Sadly my old brother printer died and I did not hesitate to by another Brother because I found the old one very reliable and it stood up to a lot of abuse.

So far I have found this printer to be great. The quality of print in both colour and Black and white even with Toner save is very good, having printed some photos I was quite impressed. The page rate is as advertised and the running costs seem to be good too - I can say more when I get through my first set of toners. If it is anything like my last brother I used to do my own toner refills with great ease and saves a fortune.

The wireless set up was very easy even with wireless security and using a MAC filter on my router. It is also easy to fix the IP address through the built in LCD screen or via the web portal and I did the whole set up without even looking at instructions except to look up the default user name and password.

If you familiar with older brother printers then the web portal and options are very similar. I do love the fact that you can create pin protected accounts for different users and limit the use of colour or number of prints. The web portal also tells you exactly how many pages each person has printed - this is great if you want to restrict some users to B&W only or control costs.

I would not hesitate to recommend this printer for functionality and ease of use. As long as it lasts like my old Brother laser then I will be a very happy man.

Happy printing!

This printer was a snap to setup with a MAC. Once configured the OS was automatically updated with the latest drivers for this very model - I was impressed. The printer is setup on the network and was easily reachable by all three of my Apple machines - no heroics required.

Printer was easy to set up and produces good quality output. Using the wireless interface it is also very easy to share amongst a number of computers. Not had it long enough yet to comment on running costs.

Excellent machine! As a laser "office" printer it does have limitations, of course. It will not print glossy photos as well as an ink jet, and CD-printing is simply not possible. Having said that it does perform very well indeed. Setting up was fairly straightforward, the only reason it is not 5 star rated is the rather complex setting up procedure in the manual. It is actually simple - but the manual tries to cover all eventualities - all together! You do need a working knowledge of Wi-Fi terminology to get through setting it up as a Wi-Fi network printer! There are 3 options for connection - USB cable, Ethernet cable (CAT5), or Wi-Fi. Why makers of printers NEVER supply USB cables is beyond me! It is also a fairly heavy machine, and if you are not sure of your ability to lift heavy weights - get help unpacking and setting up your machine. Two people can cope easily. Printing is quick and simple - and fast! Compared to ink jet it fairly zips through the pages. Quality of print is very good, at least as good as ink-jet using standard paper, and I think somewhat crisper and better defined both in text and photographs. For high volume and high speed printing, I would recommend it!

Great printer, though to get the colour right for photos you have to tweak the settings in the printer dialogue box and set up some presets to use - Go to colour settings and use vivid for some photos- make a preset with advanced sliders, up saturation 3 or 4 points, up contrast 1 and brightness 5. Also in print settings set quality to fine. Then photos look good, though not up to inkjet photo standard. but for brochures, flyers and posters it is excellent. Very low cost to run, especially since it uses 3rd party cartridges. Also duplex is great and works seamlessly without too much slow down - much faster than manual two sided. Set up was easy, Usb, Ethernet and wireless. All in all great machine

It plugged in and played on my Apple system. If the claims made for the machine live up to what they say, I've got a good buy.

I'll update in a few months of use.

Delivered quickly, easy to set-up, prints fast and clearly. Recommended, but watch for expensive refills!

Excellent. Product. Brand new and packaging was perfect. Delivery was exceptional as usual. Print quality and speed are as stated but cannot print wirelessly from an iPhone or iPad
