This is my 3rd Brother laser printer and I have loved all of them. We purchased this as a small printer to work with my iPad and to reduce the use of our larger Brother MFC in the home office. Though I needed to find a special driver and setup procedure for the iPad, it is wonderful. I love the ease of the wireless connection and had this up and running in about 5 minutes. I teach computer systems at the college level, so I do have good equipment at home and the knowledge to take full advantage of the quick setup procedures. It is not what you would consider a portable printer, but it is small enough to pack with me on road trips for doing research. It just sits in the corner of the room and quietly does it's thing. I would suggest that you use the high capacity TN-450 toner cartridge when the standard TN-420 runs out. Oh, and the 2 sided printing is sooooo cool!

-A customer quote

Bought this for $85 during Black Friday (now about $150) and it's my first laser printer. The wireless feature was very attractive and the duplex (auto) capability was also a major feature that I could not resist. Short warm up time, very fast printing. I was printing out sheet music and it was much faster than inkjet. I think a new toner is about $45-$50, but it's well worth it considering how much more efficient it is to an inkjet (you'll have to pay about the same to replace the black and color cartridges together). The only negative was it took me a while to figure out the wireless set up. I think the manual make it more confusing than it really is. Basically, just reset the wireless router power, then immediately push the small pencil button behind the printer for 2 seconds to activate the printer's wireless search mode. Once you go wireless, you don't go back to USB.
