Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy scanning to searchable PDFBasic scanning to a searchable PDF is easy. It would be better if the scanning feature had editing options.to ignore a scanned page, to rearrange the sequence of scanned pages and to adjust the contrast when source documents are have mixed paper colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great FeaturesThis printer is everything I need in a multi-functional printer and each feature works flawlessly. It's fast and quiet and is very user-friendly. It is larger than I expected so I had to re-arrange things to find a place where it would fit. My fault for not looking at the specs. But it was worth the effort. I don't know if I would have been happy with the smaller model MFC-J995DW because it lacks some of the features of this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to useIt was easy to set up. So far everything is working fine except for color printing. Color printing is spotty, black ink printing is fine. I've tried cleaning the color cartridges and reprinting but the same is happening. I gave up. I don't really need that much color printing. I've been printing only in black. Everything else is working fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent PrinterPurchased this printer to replace an aging printer from another company. New Brother printer was easy to set up in a wireless manner to my Mac Mini, 2 iPhones and 2 iPads via a Netgear router. Printing is very fast. Colors are crisp and clear. Ink supply is impressive and easy to access and replace. Paper loading and handling is easy. Online reviews of this product were correct in their praise for this machine. Printer is used mainly for home use and neighborhood committee volunteer work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endurance is the key!To be honest I overbought on this copier just for home use. However the printer was easy to install and get up to speed. The copies are very clear and the speed is very good. I hope this will be our last printer purchase as we are both in our sixties. Ink purchases are expensive no matter what you buy but I do like the automatic feature ink purchasing that comes with you product. I’m sure you seek to steer costumers away from buying generic products. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Unit!We have really enjoyed the printer. It was very easy to set up and begin using. It seems to be quite economic in its use of the color inks, much more so than an earlier HP and the Epson I just replaced. Good, fast printing, too. Some of the control options on the touch pad could be easier to find and use, though, such as switching between the paper trays and the selections of paper types, enlarging or shrinking images. The scanner utilility is great and easy to use. Wonderful scans, also. Overall, I am now a Brother fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the printerI bought this printer to print 11 by 17 plans for permitting.then found out they would accept the 11 by 8.5 so I went ahead and. Print 11 by 17 since I already paid for the printer.I did have too make a copy of my property which is on 11 by 17. You can't make it direct copy from it 11 by 17 to 11 by 17 so what I had to do is photograph 11 / 17 with my phone and then download it to computer crop it and put an 11 by 17 paper which work fine .so far the print looks like it works very good I've only printed about 50 sheets 11 by 17 and about 10 sheets eight and a half by 11 and you can direct copy 8.5 by 11 the prints were very clear and crisp. Overall I think this is a very good printer nothing like my Epson every time you turn around I have to put ink in it I'll clean the heads or both. I guess you get what you pay for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RecommendedI like the low cost of ink. More than makes up for the initial higher price compared to conventional inkjet cartridge printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes good 8 1/2x 11 copysWhen I went to buy a printer to replace what I had, I was wanting a printer that would copy 11x17 forms to an 11x17 paper. The salesperson said it should and showed me where the form would need to go located in the back. I gave my other printer back to the seller since I no longer needed it. Turns out that I cannot copy an 11x17 form to a 11x17 paper. The printer says it takes 11x17. I guess it just doesn't copy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything I needed it tooThis unit is nice and compact and prints 11 x 17 quickly. The unit prints very nice and clear colors the ink that comes with it so far is only half used and I print a LOT of pages. The only issue I have is that it jams every once in a while when using the dual sided option.
