Very impressed with this for both a3 printing and scanning. I wanted it to improve on the separate combination of a Mustek a3 scanner and HP 1220 a3 printer. The HP is still very good but cartridges are pricey. The Mustek was rubbish from day one; temperamental,washed out colours etc and I need to copy a3 plans for work. The printing on 'normal' of the HP is slightly better than the Brother in that the black is blacker and the colours are slightly richer but on best there isn't much difference. The inks are much cheaper; I use a lot of yellow and there is a separate cartridge for that so it should save replacing all the colours when only the yellow is empty which happened frequently with HP. The wifi worked perfectly 1st time and saves running long cables around the place. It prints perfectly from 4 networked computers and an HTC Desire over wifi.
All in all I'm impressed with this machine and at the price it can only be described as a bargain.
