PC Magazine 2015 Readers' Choice Award

Brother no longer has to share the Readers' Choice prize. For 2015, Brother alone wins our top award with consistently high ratings for satisfaction and reliability across several different printer categories. This is the seventh straight year Brother has won a Readers' Choice Award for its printers and, based on how well it scores for printers less than a year old, it probably won't be the last.
