Pros:

I got this primarily so I could do scanning and eliminate all paper from the house. This also gives me the capability to print things in color if needed. I have so far scanned about 2000 pages without a single jam, which can't be said for HP.
All printer drivers for linux is located at welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/index.html

Cons:

The installation of the drivers and debian files were a bit painful. You have to save the deb and install them from command line in a certain order.

Other Thoughts:

Some helpful installation instructions that worked for me.
The lpr has to be installed before cupswrapper. Then install the other drivers, I did PCFax second...again lpr before cups. Finally the scanner itself, which requires brscan4. Again this has to be installed from terminal with sudo dpkg -i --force-all (file location). Once this is complete you have to get the deb file for normal user operation so download the brother-udev-rule-type1-1.0.0-1.all.deb a link is provided for download at welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/instruction_scn1c.html#u13.04. What Brother has failed to update is "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" file even for 13.04 has to be updated. So use gedit in terminal to open the file and add the
# Brother scanners
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
where they tell you on the website.
i wasn't able to get their scan-key-tool to work...didn't spend that much time on it either tho. Instead I got Gscan2pdf from Unbuntu software center. I would like to see how the scan-key-tool works so will work on that further this weekend.

Regardless overall this thing is Rock solid and well worth every penny. Good Job Brother for a solid product and providing the Linux support we need!!!
