After months of struggling with HP and my AIO7410, I finally gave up with HP. They still can't get any of their products with scanners in them to work properly on Vista. So now I'm a Brother advocate. Enough was enough. This printer installed effortlessly. Being a techy with Networking, I was actually able to get it set up in no time at all without reading anything. Not bragging here. Just making a point. It was a piece of cake! Even the packaging it was in... It recommends 2 people, but I managed to remove it myself. And I have to say, the packaging was well thought out like a science. With step by step instructions on the inside of the lid, it tells you exactly how to remove it without going nuts. It's quality and design is great! Best Investment I've made!

i was initially looking to purchase an hp multi function inkjet but found nothing but bad user reviews. came across the brother laser multi-function and found mostly positive reviews. placed the order with buy.com, ordered one each of the high yield toner cartridges as well. everything arrived piece meal within about a week of my order. the printer box is big (basically 3' square). the printer is about 80 lbs.and it was double boxed. there was a lot of packing tape on the printer - this i liked because brother took care to make sure nothing could come loose in transit. every tray and cover was taped. you definitely need help to get the inside box out of the box and to place the printer where you want it. installing the toner cartridges was a snap. configuring the printer via the display was fairly straight forward. the web interface is nice. connecting the printer to our network was simple - connect the network cable to the printer and the hub - done. we use dhcp for most items on our network and static ip's for specific devices. i thought that this might be an issue but i proceeded. i thought the software would be a problem. we have a very old pc running xp that is of the win98 vintage. it took this system noticeably longer to load the software. we had no problems once this was done. the software found the printer and we where done. loaded the software into a much newer system, sony vaio w- xp. same results - easy, smooth installation. i have never had such a smooth hardware/software computer oriented installation. it took me about 2 - 2.5 hrs from start to finish (software on both systems). in all fairness, i keep all my packaging just in case, every bag and twist tie. could probably be done in an hour if you do not hold on to your packaging. highly recommend this printer. printed some pics - look great.
