WARNING - VERY SHORT LIFE!
I have had Brother Printers for years and found them great but I purchased this one around 18 months ago. The paper jams all the time, whatever you're using - the ink leaked from the back, the paper fed several at once giving you partially printed pages - it would suddenly, unaccountably go incredibly slow and now it won't print at all. However many cleans it had for ink, the picture in colour was utterly distorted and ghosty. It has not been pushed particularly hard or mistreated and neither has it had the wrong paper fed into it. Sadly we lost the receipt and have no recourse - Beware!

When printer is running low on ink and you change the cartridges it still says that it is out of ink!
When it runs out of paper, even when you put paper back in it still says that it is out of paper.
If you switch it off and switch it back on it still says either out of paper or out of ink.
Then after you are fed up of trying to get it to work it suddenly starts working on its own about 1/2 hour later.

2nd Brother I have purchased this year . Amazing quality for the price especially for the A3 capability. Would definitely recommend for the small business user.

This does everything I need. It is a good idea to riffle paper before loading otherwise it can stick sheets together (and I notice that when there are only a few sheets left it often brings out one two or three together - presumably static eletricity.)
Very handy to be able to do A3.

THIS IS A FIRST CLASS PRODUCT. I ONLY GOT THIS PRINTER SO I CAN PRINT TO A3 PAPER. EASY TO SET UP AND CONECT TO WIFI. PAPER TRAY HOLDS PLENTY OF A3 PAPER. AND EASY TO CHANGE PAPER SIZE, ALTHOUGH ONLY ONE SIZE CAN BE LOADED AT ONCE. HAD THIS PRINTER FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS AND NO PROBLEMS SO FAR.

Good in principle but flawed in practice
The idea of an A3 dulex printer is a good one - A3 prints, double sided so saving paper. What's not to love? Well, it's only when you've bought the thing that you find out that, when printing in A3 duplex mode, there's a 22mm (7/8") stripe at either end that CAN'T be printed on! That's over 10% of the length of the sheet!
Got plans with exisiting titleblocks? Forget it - they'll be cropped and useless.
OK it'll do A4 duplex fine, then either do A3 well too, or don't bother. The label on the machine says "Professional Series" - who are Brother kidding???

This machine is exactly what I required to start of my new business venture. It does A3 copies as well as the more standard print, scan, copy, fax. The machine is very easy to use so no delays in trying to sort before working.
I would recommend to anyone.

Use of Printer
It is very easy to set up and use straight from the box, including wifi. Had no problems printing in different formats and sizes. Prints graphics, text and photos with ease.
