Pros: Fast printing, duplex scan/copy/print, auto document feeder. Scan to thumbdrive. Linux CUPS drivers available.
Cons: 250 sheet input tray, not 500.
Does *not* scan to email as you would expect from the specs. (See "Other thoughts".)
Other Thoughts: This is a network printer that says it supports "scan to email" on the Brother product info page. To my surprise, there was no option on the scanner to do that. It turns out that you need a PC and a USB connection to use that feature; you scan to the PC and then their software emails it. Since I'm using this printer on a network (i.e. not USB), and I don't have a constantly-running Mac/Windows machine nearby to run the software anyway, the "scan to email" feature is not actually available for me.
This printer *is* able to send status reports via email over the network, and can scan documents to PDF on a local thumbdrive, so it seems like the firmware is all that's stopping it from being able to directly send an email with a PDF attachment. I guess memory (128MB) would limit you to a certain number of pages, but you would hit the attachment size limit of virtually any mail server first.
