The wireless installation was a snap for both Windows 8.1 and Apple Sierra operating systems.. The printing is sharp and fast. It's footprint is even smaller than I anticipated, and smaller than a top rated Samsung. We can use it at home and it's perfect for us. We have an old inkjet for times we need color, but 95% of the time we can use this laser instead.
This is a replacement for a very similar spec, highly rated Samsung black-and-white laser that I worked several hours on trying to get it set up on both our Windows and Apple systems, even with phone support from both of those companies. We never did get it to work with the Apple, so we returned it for this one instead. This is the first Brother we've had, and the first laser printer of any kind.
It prints the first page in a matter of 6-8 seconds, with no trouble with wirelessly waking from deep sleep, and it prints as quickly as advertised. It hasn't disconnected from our Wi-Fi yet and we've been using it for a couple weeks now. Graphics are not the absolute best, but are none-the-less very good so I can't downgrade it for that.
I absolutely love this printer and will now always had a laser for my workhorse, and an inkjet for the few color printouts I occasionally need.
