Low Cost - Good Performance


Low Cost, Fairly Fast Printing, Ink seems to last a good amount of time, Wireless function works great, Document feeder works fine ; This loaded easily for me and the wireless connected quickly and has stayed connected ; I decided to try a Brother Ink...

After it makes a copy, it does a little shuffle of the print head that makes you wait to start the next copy. It's not a Big Deal, but it does make you wait and waste some time if you are in a hurry

Workhore Printer/Scanner/Copier


I have printer maybe 100 pages - all flawlessly. The ink system here is very robust, very clean, and it seems like Brother did a good job of designing a system not prone to ink dry-ups. Also, Brother ink seems to be notably cheaper than that of other...

It's probably easy to link this to the network, but I still haven't been able to do so, though I haven't tried very hard since the wired connectivity works so well ; Also, Airprint would be a great feature if you have success linking this printer to...

Win 7-64...Look Elsewhere


Save yourself the hassle and look elsewhere...unless you really don't value your time.

I did finally get it to work...after 3 hours of aggravation

Absolutely the worst driver installation experience in a long time. Despite downloading latest version from their web site ; The install was on a clean, brand new Win7-64 build so no excuse for conflicts. Totally flakey software: just unaccepable for a...

Decent printer


Really good printer for everyday home/office use.

Print quality is excellent and wireless setup was easy. Very simple to use. Separate ink cartridges for each colour

Printing with Photo Paper seems to cause paper jam

Best printer for the money


Use WiFi or you will have to buy Ethernet cable not a con though. You should have WiFi its 2013 lol

So easy... It took me a half hour to set up and print scan so so easy... Did I say easy lol I'm a network specialist and if they keep making it this easy I'm going to be out of a job. Good Job Brother

Brother MFC-J425w


It looks good on the desk, no complaints.

Competitive pricing. Wireless set-up was very easy for both my PC and Macbook Pro. The cartridges are easy to get refilled

Does not ship with a USB cable. Not a big deal

Nice Printer


Surprised at how fast it prints.

Easy setup. A caveman can do it. Excellent scanning Paperport software ; Easy to set up an adhock network. An like every printer I've had from Brother, it just works

had a little bit of trouble with the password setup. It won't take just any WPA2 password

Mac printing


I probably should not have deducted an egg, it is a fine printer and I am not well versed in the Mac world. The laptop is my son's and he is away at school so I was trying to help him over the phone. It is a good value for those who need Mac capable...

Full features and quality printing at a great price. Mac compatible (sort of, see below)

It will take a bit of work and the latest software download to get this printer working as advertised with a Macbook Pro. It did not work well out of the box with the included software on the most up to date Mac OS. Eventually after some work getting...
