This was my third Brother MFC printer. I was trying to replace my current MFC9600 that has been been excellent for more than 5 years. I wanted the duplex functionality, the better print quality, as well as the some of the additional features.
And you better believe it, this machine is IT! Faster faxing, faster and better quality scanning, faster copying and printing, better quality prints and copies, and many more very beneficial features that I really liked. being technically savvy, it was a breeze setting it up as a wireless printer without using the Brother wizard in the CD. So, after a quick setup, I was able to complete all my tasks wirelessly...
I was very pleased with my purchase. Everything was actually perfect until I tried printing on an envelope. The first time I printed on an envelope, the result was a completely wrinkled envelope. Then I tried again, and same result. I thought that I could survive with a wrinkled envelope anyway. So, a week later, I tried again. This time, I kept getting the message "Check Paper Size". After a few calls to customer service, the problem was still not resolved. So, I decided to return it to the store.
Printing on an envelope is a show stopper for me! However, I will check back again after a few months. Hopefully Brother will fix this issue so I can buy this printer again.
Yes! I have to admit it! Except for the envelope issue, this is the best printer on the market.Overall this is a great all in one printer. Good size/design. Not many of these type of printers have the hidden tray/bin for paper. Some printers the paper sticks out on the top. The HP C3180 doesnt have a place for paper storage, everytime you print need to fold down front flap and add paper. This design is really clean. Impressed with the printing/scanning quality as well. Wont top laser but does the job. Good deal, sign up for the credit card to get $30 off. Cant go wrong with this printer...period!!!
Only thing I wished is that there was a photo printing software. There arent much option when printing photos. I printed a 4x6 and wasnt able to adjust the positioning. It does print the photo well but could be annoying when some parts get cut off. This is just a minor issue. But then, who really prints photos???
I give this printer an A+. Printer is good to go, quite and built in card reader.

Oh how I wanted this, I like brother printers - and a wireless one that supports OS9 OSX, and Windows too, USB, wireless, or ethernet - wowee! Then I opened the box, does not do wireless with OS9. Oh well, then I plugged it in and every UPS in my office chimed and the lights flickered when I turn it on. Yep, even plugged straight into the wall, this room heater uses 9.1 Amps, and I bet 11 when it first powers up. So, this just won't work in an average home office - we have 15 amp lines - a few computers, a TV, a radio, a light, and that can add up to 7 amps - add this fax machine and pop a breaker. I never got a chance to test it, but it sure sounds good. If you have a 20-amp circuit, or can dedicate a 15-amp circuit to it, I'm sure it's a great machine.
Well, I tried it again, put it downstairs in a room with no other computers and tried the wireless option. Ok, I'm keeping it! On my main wireless laptop, it works great, my other wireless laptop - in the same room as the monster Brother MFC - it works for one time, then stopped working. So I used a USB cable on that one. My 3 other OSX machines in other rooms work great printing to it wirelessly, so, most of my computers can print, scan, and fax, wirelessly to this beast. So, I'm going to keep it, as it sucks less than an amp when it sleeps, and it copies and faxes and scans - wireless access, really well. I think it was the hassle of returning it that made me try again. And the laptop that won't print wirelessly to it, well, Pcs are Pcs, some don't work for some reason, it's an older laptop, my workhorse one works fine.
