uthorns1976 said: A lot of negative reviews. Average 4 stars like most groups of reviews I've seen for this type of Brother printer. Of course there are negative reviews in there but not sure I'd characterize it as "lots" relatively speaking. Or should I say there are like 3-4x more positive,

I've got the 430 and the 435, both for $50 apiece, the 435 prints noticeably faster than the 430, there must be some other capability of these over the 425, considering the 430 and 435 have recently (the last week) been priced at $60...

Per Brothers web site the print speed of the 425, 430 and 435 should be the same. Either the Brother specs on those printers are wrong or perhaps the settings of the printers are different? Like I recently read on an ink vendor web site to select "inkjet paper" rather than plain paper. That "the printer will print a little slower but the print head will last longer". I have yet to test what, if any, difference this setting makes but plan to. Not sure just wondering since per Brother the print speed should be the same.
AnAceBuyer said: Duplex print, but not scan, for the 435. Appears to be a pretty top-of-the-line feature for Brother. For the inkjet AIO line, only the top model MFC-J6910dw has it, estimated price $299. For AIO laser, has to be DCP-8155DN or above, estimated price $399+. Might find a software workaround for it though such as recent versions of Adobe Acrobat which support scanning double sided on single sided scanning hardware.

I just looked at the specifications for the 425, 430 and 435 and there see nothing about duplex printing on any of them. It's either the 6xx or 8xx series that includes duplex, not the 4xx series.
Edit: From the looks of it, the duplex printers have a "D" in the name (MFC-J825DW for example).

This is misinformation. You have to step up $30 to get duplex print. I just bought one from B and H
I missed that before. Right, the MFC-J435W doesn't have duplex print. If it doesn't have the D like MFC-J835DW then no duplex print. Doesn't seem to be a specific designator for duplex scan, you just have to look it up. You can go to http://www.brother-usa.com/MFC/ and pick a category and compare features of up to 4 models.
For cheap ink, this is a great product. I have had a 35 for the past 2 years using the extended ciss inkjet cartridges off of eBay. I have refilled it many times and it is great. My kids are known to print 25-30 full color pics and this is the ticket..
GMY said: 20 page auto feeder for the scanner is a nice feature as long as your originals are 1 sided. Or if you use the "scan other side" option in the brother scanning software or similar features in Adobe Acrobat and/or Microsoft Word etc to scan both sides on a single sided scanner through software trickery.
tomasSC said: which model has duplex ADF (scan)?? FYI I successfully scanned a stack of double sided pages with both the Brother paperport sw and omnipage. They both have settings which allow scanning one side of the stack via the adf then the other and will correlate the pages for you after. Not perfect granted but better than a page at a time. Microsoft Word document scanning should also be able to do it but this appears to be broken on my computer and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Found a KB article which suggested the workaround of using some other product! Good job Micro$oft, hah. So that's what I did, use other software. Acrobat apparently does this as well but I don't own a recent version of that.
