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

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
