Printing from iOS devices is rock solid now, no thanks to my supossed "AirPrint compatible" printer from Brother.

If I had it to do over I would buy any other brand but Brother.

Never again.
Oh really? It has been very reliable for me. Did you update to their latest framework? Also I am not sure if the router has anything to do with it, but just FYI, I have a run of the mill Linksys router, nothing fancy, is that what you have?

I worked AirPrint around using HandyPrints and if I want to print double sided I have to use manual duplexing.

I put together a excel with several models and made my choice based on it. This printer is ok in terms of physical dimensions, it features wireless and wired networking and it can be ordered in grey/white color so swmbo is happy with my choice.

This model runs for about 120 on amazon Spain so it is a pretty good deal if you are after the same things I was.

Any questions just ask.

Quick update. Samsung recently put out an update which brings along Airprint support. This is the perfect printer for me now!!! Handyprints works just fine, but it can be a little annoying having to wake always up your Mac.
