This is a super all-in-one printer. The intructions are very easy to understand and the printer itself is very versatile. You can use it to upload images strainght from SD cards onto the computer and it also has a full editing function which is great for improving photographs. The scanner gives beautiful clean scans of documents and photographs and the pop-up screen on the front of the machine tells you what it is doing as you use it.
The paper cartridge just pulls out to load and it is designed to take all sorts of paper, from ordinary printer paper to photo-quality paper. Loading the ink cartridges couldn't be easier either. You just pull out the compartment on the front, remove the old ones and slot in the new. No mess!
I found the ink managment function very helpful. It tells you when the ink is getting low and also cleans the printer heads if they get dirty. Ink for this machine is also relatively inexpensive. You can also buy compatible cartridges, which work really well and give very good results, plus are very cheap compared to the ones recommended by Brother.
For myself, I think this is the best all-in-one printer I have ever owned and would never buy another.
