Very pleased

This printer replaces an old brother that finally just gave up the ghost.
Extremely easy to setup - I had it up and running via wireless on both my computers in about 15 minutes. The controls are enough like my old one there was no learning curve.
Print quality is very good and extremely fast.
If this one lasts as long as the old one, I'll be a happy camper.

Excellent for all the little reasons

I'm a Mac user and found the MFCJ450DW easy enough to install and use. The wireless print function was instant, the wireless scan feature took a little tweaking. I do not use the FAX.
The things that endear this printer to me are all the little, unexpected benefits/features. No matter what I need to accomplish, there always seems to be a way. Indicates to me that Brother put a lot of thought into design of the printer.

Nice printer, super quality color output, dead easy connecting to my Mac running System 10.6.8 - I like the wireless option, works with my Kindle and Nook over my Airport network. I like Brother products; I have a Brother laser printer, too.

horrible experience

I would not give this printer even 1 star. I had connection issues and received poor help from the call center. I had to make almost a dozen calls to resolve connection issues, and I'm still not sure the scanner is connected. Be prepared to call the support center at 9 a.m, unless you want to wait a half hour or more. They must have a small staff or a huge # of problems. The manual gives incomplete info for MAC users. Reps sometimes send printed instructions but these come late and don't always relate to the problem I described. I've hung up thinking a problem was resolved only to find that it isn't. On one occasion, after being disconnected twice, I finally reached an agent. I had been on hold for 25 minutes. When he learned I have a MAC he told me he'd have to connect me to a MAC agent. I'd already spent over an hour on the phone and couldn't wait any longer. I'd never recommend the MFC-J450DW to anyone. I'd never recommend any Brother product to anyone.
