Caution: No UK plug and Google Cloud Print is currently broken,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brother HL3140CW A4 Colour Laser Wireless Printer (Accessory)
Seems a good printer but if you are buying from the UK please note you will need to buy a UK plug as there is only a 2-pin euro-style plug in the box. An old 3-pin "kettle" lead as you would use for a PC will suffice so you may have one kicking around. Also no USB cable, although that is less of an issue if you are connecting this printer to your home network.
Contrary to horror stories about setting this up on wireless and printing from Mac computers setup was simple for me. Brother have improved the wireless setup process - it can all be done from the LCD panel and you just need to know your SSID and network password. Mac printing was also simple - open Print/Scan preferences, add a printer and it will show up as an Air Print printer in the list. No drivers to install and no manufacturer bloatware either - a big plus having spent hours configuring previous Epson & Kodak printers on Mac
Currently Google Cloud Print is broken which may be an issue if you are wanting to print from Android or a Chromebook. Google changed "something" and Brother are now busy updating their printer firmware to take account of this. I could add the printer to a certain extent but it would only show as being offline when trying to print. If this is important to you then I can't recommend this printer at the moment.

Is it quiet? I want a printer that is silent unless it is actually printing.

Did they ever fix Google Cloud Print?

I just bought one but couldn't get Google Print to work (wouldn't register), even after updating firmware & opening port 5222 on my router.
