    You gotta be kidding...

    By MattinLancaster

    Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax:

    This thing has been one problem after another ever since I bought it. Brother's promise of support comes with a catch: Long wait times, little actual information. I spent more than an hour on the phone for five (5) minutes of support and this thing still doesn't work properly. I tried to cash in the warranty and Brother refused to honor it. I complained to the BBB and Brother ignored my complaint (which is filed as unresolved by the BBB). I will NEVER own another Brother product of any kind. Today I walked past and the printer was whirring and making printing noises despite being switched off. Unplugged it. DO NOT use the enclosed setup disk -- you'll get default features you have to disable later. Set up online if possible. The wireless printing option does not work, and I cannot find a solution online. (I refuse to speak to Brother after my experience with them.) The fax function hijacks the devices & printers as the default. I don't have a land line or fax (does anyone?). I must continually reset this to print. The actual printing happens sometimes; other times it just hangs up in the queue and I have to troubleshoot and start over. If Brother had honored its warranty or better yet, stood behind its product, this thing would be out of my house. It's headed that way soon enough, but Brother will NOT be back in my house again.


    Perfect machine!

    CDW has always delivered on their promise. Delivered and easy to set-up, wireless set-up simple and printing away within 15 minutes of taking out of the box.The print quality is good and plenty speedy for any home office. Color also very good. This is an inexpensive, solid printer for general use (office or home) and well worth the small investment.

    well, i guess i would say this is a good printer, if i could get it to work.. windows 7 keeps telling me there is an unknown device and when checked further, says that it has stopped service on the printer because of ' known problems '..code 43.. have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled four or five times now.. all Brother info says successful install.. then windows stops it...


    By far the worst printer purchase I have EVER made

    By tarheelchic81

    from Wichita Falls, TX

    Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax:

    I have had this printer for 2 months now and have had nothing but problems with it. It is constantly losing connection with my laptop. Which means I have to move to the room where the printer is and re-enter my WiFi password every time. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a WIRELESS printer if I have to sit beside it every time I need something printed. Once it finally starts printing, it may stop after the first page, even if the print job contains multiple pages. If I could wait an extended period of time to have something printed, I would just wait to have my husband print it out from work. My main purpose for purchasing this printer was because it was listed as one that would connect with my smartphone to print wirelessly as well. The printer is pretty much worthless on that front as well. At this very moment, I am sitting beside the printer because I sent a 5-page print job to it and of course, I received the error message that the printer was not connected. I sent the job 20 minutes ago and 1 page has printed. I have tried online customer support for this product and was basically told to do the same thing that was in the online manual. I spoke to 2 representatives on different occasions and neither of them could give me a solution other than what I'd already found for myself. If I could return this product, I would do so immediately. It has definitely not been worth my money.


    Solid, Simple & Superb!

    Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax:

    I was using a competitors product and for whatever reason was getting unacceptable results. I thought about it and I had owned many Brother products over the years and had never had one fail me. Therefore, I threw my one-year- old brand-x printer in the dumpster, purchasing my Brother MFC-J650DW the same day. Now I am enjoying great results at a competitive price. P.S. I noticed that my new printer weighs 50% more than brand-x. That's ok, it's not heavy, it's my BROTHER!

    Our Best Multi-Function

    By Debiann21

    from Northwest Florida

    Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax:

    We have only had it a week with only limited use so far. We haven't sent a fax yet. That is only an occasional occurance anyway. It was very easy and quick to set up with all of our computers and we have both Window 8 64-bit and Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit machines. It was an easy set up with our Android tablets and phones, Iphone and Ipad. This is definitely the fastest printer ever. The printing is crisp and so far the colors are true and sharp. If my opinion changes I will re-post. I also think this is a very reasonably priced printer.
