    • Update: (June 30, 2011) After using this printer for a few months, I am dropping the rating to 4 stars. I am still happy with the consumption and print quality, however, the paper trays are terribly engineered. It is annoying to add paper or change paper from letter to tabloid size. Lots of misfed paper and a few paper jams. The wireless scanning software is not intuitive and works sometimes but not always.I did some serious research on all-in-ones before purchasing this.

There's not much negative that I can say at this point. I purchased this printer due to the specifications I found attractive: Large Print/Scan/Fax (11x17), Wireless, automatic Duplex Printing. I have not tested the faxing, as I rarely use it. But it looks like the software allows you to fax from your computer quite easily -- e.g., print to a virtual "fax printer".Setup was quite easy, and was done in about 15 to 20 minutes without any problem. That included unpacking, powering the printer, installing the ink, self-test, and setting up the wireless. Once that was done I downloaded the latest drivers from the Brother website (there is a drivers disk included, but may as well make sure you're getting the latest; the web address is in the quick setup manual). After that, everything worked as expected.I was able to scan to a USB device, which allowed me to save as PDF or TIFF. I then specified "Scan to File" and it scanned wirelessly to my computer as a...

Purchased it 5/31/11. It arrived 6/2/11. Loved that. Got started right away. First night wireless setup to wireless router went relatively smooth. Not knowing the wireless router WPA Key password was just about the only hick-up. Spent the first weekend loading the print and scan drivers to MAC OS X 10.6 and PC WIN 2000. Problems began. The MAC loading went relatively smooth. The PC loading became frustrating. I think more so because I did not know all the network lingo so setup errors were made which created more frustrating errors. Spent the second weekend working on the PC setup errors. Finally things started to operate as advertised. I began to realize a few network settings on the Brother were best if they were changed from the default setting, and the network settings on the PC were not matching up with what the Brother was set to. Now everything operates as advertised. So far no paper jams experienced. I use 11x17 scan all the time. It saves me time on how many...
