I have been using printers for well over 20 years now and I'm Not impressed with this printer in the least! My older Kodak printer died on me, so I did the research and found this printer with so many glowing reviews; so I bought it. Well, the reviews were Hogwash! The printer is Super Slow doing it's job, the setup disk did not do it's job (I had to download from Brother's website to get the printer to setup. The Photo print quality is almost as bad as an old Dot Matrix printer and just about as fast. To change paper size you have to pull the paper drawer out Completely to shove the 4X6 inch size paper tray in or out. Instead of the machine doing it automatically. It is difficult to put paper in this printer too. I have not tried the Scanner feature out yet, nor have I tried the Fax machine. I did notice that the scanner needs to use Paperport software. That software is a bit out of date, slow and clunky. I quit using Paperport software well over 10 years ago because of this fact. I do like the idea of being able to use a Thumb drive with the printer. And the printer does accept an SD card, but lacks the slots for the CF cards that both of my Canon Cameras use. This is a bit of a bummer, but I have a card reader on my computer, so it is not a deal breaker. I downloaded the Ap for my IPhone from the Brother website and it works Great! So I am happy with that feature! It seamlessly transfers photos to my IPhone and from my phone. The printer works good with all of our computers. We have Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. So that is a plus. The menu on the printer is easy to use and seems to work just fine. It is easy to navigate through the Menu for the different jobs the printer does, so if you are looking for a feature like that, this is the printer for you. (If you have a Lot of Time to WAIT for the printer to slowly spit out the pages!) All in all, I Would Not Recommend this printer to any of my friends or family! I Am Not Impressed at all with it!
