    Can anyone give a current recommendation for a color laser MFP which works well with a Mac?

    I've been looking at the HP M277dw and Brother DCP-9020CDW, but in both cases I find a mixture of positive reviews and people saying they've had big problems with the Mac compatibility/drivers/other software.

    Can anyone comment on whether these work well or not? I get the feeling Brother might have better Mac support but the smaller footprint of the HP is tempting.

    I'm looking for something with duplex printing (scanning would be good), reasonable photo quality (for a laser at least), and a compact footprint.

    It would be great to be able to do duplex photocopying from the device, if necessary with guided manual scanning of the other sides of the sheets.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Hi - I have been running the M277N networked version for the past year now with zero issues and I always update any drivers when they are available. I print from my MBP, my wife's MBA and also on occasion from my iPad and iPhone. Photo printing is bad and so I would not recommend it for that.

    I have been using the HP M452dw with an iMac without issue. I find all in one printers to be problematic. I would purchase a separate scanner

    I am using M477fdw. I got it on sale which was a very good deal.
