Works well, but you cannot set it up without. Works well, but you cannot set it up without a cable (it doesn’t come with it) if you does not use windows. I have only linux on my computer and it was a nightmare. I ended up borrowing a windows computer.
Probably the most efficient rinter i’ve ever used. . Although this printer is a little bit ‘plasticy’, it’s no more so than any number of far more expensive printers. I like this ‘frills free’ printer. Because it has no other functions – it’s not a copier, scanner or fax, just a black and white printer and thus (imho) makes it far less likely for things to go wrong. I bought this two months ago, have used it regularly and never had a problem.

If only everything in life was this hassle free. . Neat little printer, set up took maybe 15 minutes as you download both the wifi package and the driver package. Or you run a usb cable (not included) to the printer. On the mac it worked well, running yosemite, little else to add since it sits in the corner and does what is asked of it. If only everything in life was this hassle free.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Probably the most efficient rinter I’ve ever used.
- Very economical mono printer, could be blacker.
- Really good little printer, would recommend.
Very easy to set up with internet even i could do it. (68 yr old female technophobe ) does exactly what i wanted it to do.
A good small, low cost laser printer. I purchased a used version since i’m only occasionally using it and it worked great. Being used all the packaging had been opened and the ink cartridge was installed. The printer has wireless but i used a usb cable, which wasn’t included. The printer uses a square type b usb connector. A cdrom driver disk was included but i downloaded the drivers from the brother web site. They were 2014 versions which worked fine. It uses a4 sized paper as standard but it includes a plastic adapter for a5 paper which i will certainly lose. Downloaded & installed the printer driver. Added paper to the bottom tray. Then in windows 10 64-bit, printed a delivery note from ebay, selected the printer in print settings, and it quickly printed a nice and clean copy of the label with bar code and insert. It’s a laser printer and so the print quality and speed are better than similar priced ink jets, and i expect the ink cartridge will provide more copies as well.
