The main problem I have with it, is the feature that I use the most (and bought it primarily for). The duplex printing. I volunteer for a community non-profit, and design and print their flyers and brochures. It does an awesome job of duplexing (2-sided printing). However... for some screwy reason, even if I am printing in 100% greyscale B&W, it drains my colored ink cartridges!
The one time I managed to get through to their customer service, the agent barely spoke English. (Not being a native speaker myself, I am pretty tolerant of those who also aren't.) This person had serious comprehension issues, and seemed unable to deviate from scripted responses. I Hate those. The upshot seemed to be, "that's the way it is, suck it up, live with it, and buy more ink.". I didn't start using it right way, so am past the 30-day return mark and stuck with it.
When it doesn't work, however, it's a complete nightmare. After about 2 months of owning it, the printer disconnects from the network constantly. I'd say about every two times I want to print, the printer and computer cannot find each other, at which point I have to spend about 15-60 min trying the different install/connect options with the CD it came with, until it finally connects. One time, the printer was not able to connect (I didn't bother trying to fix it this time, as the document was not very important), and magically connected itself an hour later and printed my document.
Starting yesterday (after about 5 months of owning it?) I started getting the error "UNABLE TO PRINT 6F" and was unable to power the machine off via the power button. There was no paper jam, and it was printing perfectly just minutes before I got this error. The only thing I can think of is that I accidentally pushed the stack of paper into the bottom feed a little too far? But if that's the case, the machine is way too sensitive and/or fragile. When I try resetting the printer, sometimes the message will switch to "UNABLE TO PRINT AF" and sometimes it stays the same. Either way, I can't print anything.
The user's guide was unhelpful in solving this issue, though I tried everything suggested under the vague "Unable to print XX" section. I've searched Google high and low, tried many solution attempts (even the ones that seem unlikely to have any affect), and nothing has worked. The cheapest quote I could get to fix the printer was $75, not including parts if needed. Seeing as it costs $79.95 new, and didn't even work properly (connetion-wise) for me prior to getting this error, I won't be taking it in to get fixed, and am not going to purchase a new Brother printer.
I really wish I could have given this printer a better review, because it has great functionality. But if I can't access those functions consistently or reliably, it's really not very useful to me.
Easy setup unlike my previous Canon Pixma. I was able to set it up on the LCD screen and get it connected to my wireless no problem!
Decent quality on photo paper, however this printer is more gauged at providing the household a easily accessible printer for documents and more.
It has a mobile app (also see below for con) so I can print from my iPad or other mobile devices.
Great form factor with the features I needed at a good price.
The print feature on iOS and android is conducted through another application that is required to be on the phone. This app allows you to print from your device, however it is not on the fly. For example you can not print out a web page or form on a site, you first must save the page or form to your device then select it from the Brother App.
This is a quality printer, with decently priced ink cartridges and mobile device printing. Despite requiring an application to print from a mobile device, it is (in my opinion) light years beyond Canon's printers.
