With this colour laser printer costing £150, there is little point in buying an ink-jet unless you will print very little or need a small, light printer. If you are replacing an ink-jet, be aware that this is heavy and larger (450x400 x 230 high); but for the cost & quality and especially cost of printing, it now makes sense to use a colour laser printer (my first colour laser was twice the size in all 3 directions, 4 times as heavy and cost over £5000; the print quality was not as good).
The installation instructions are a pain: they've been designed by a committee using flow charts instead of common sense and the Brother management should be forced to eat the paper they are printed on. Ignore them completely: run the installation CD, then connect the printer with a USB cable (NOT supplied) and run through the Add Printer on the computer. If you want it wireless, install it on one computer with a USB cable, then on another computer use Add Printer and it shows on the network. Easy. That was using Mac; probably more complicated with Windows.
Don't forget to remove all the packing sticky tapes, plus the plastic thingies on each of the 4 toner cartridges.
Configuration: there isn't any. Once installed, it just works.
The print quality is great: blue is a bit dark, but I'm sure that can be adjusted.
Toners: black is TN-241BK & prints 2500 pages. Colours: TN-241 standard (1400 pages), TN-245 high-capacity (2200 pages); add C M or Y after the number for the colour. I've had problems with compatibles on another laser and will use only originals for safety.
