Brother MFC-J5945DW - multifunction printer - color is rated4.30 out of5 by10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large ink tank and vivid colorsI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The setup was relatively easy for my home office. The only miss is the slot for the cable is a bit awkward to put in if you are not using wifi. I was amazed for how it comes with a large tank of ink that they claim will last for an entire year. Overall, I love this printer and I will see how long the ink would last. Printing speed is a bit on the slow side but quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great home office printerI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Brother MFC-J5945DW Injet is a great home office printer. It has a huge capacity for paper, long lasting ink cartridges, and the print quality is what you would find on a much larger industrial printer. The printer is larger than a typical home printer so it needs a little more space due to a back feeder and weight. It prints small projects quickly and the settings were easy to alter. Large projects (over 100 pages) took quite a while but the quality was wonderful. I was really impressed with the ease of setting up such a commercial style of office equipment. I did need two people to get it out of the box but it only has a power plug to hook up. The driver cd installation was easy albeit a little time consuming (about 45 min). The screen on the printer had very easy and clear instructions with ink, paper and feeder use/ installation. The fax and scan functions are also easy and user friendly. Pros: large paper capacity that doesn`t seem to jam-- even when printing large files double sidedhigh print volume ink cartridges that are super easy to install and changemany paper/ print options including 2 sided and bookletfeeder tray for odd size papers/ envelopes/ photosCons: paper trays have a removable cover that has to be taken off and replaced to put in paperOverall-- I think the Brother printer all in one is a great option for a work from home office or small business. It has all the functions needed and is easy to use and set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of great features, but some kinksI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Brother color inkjet multi-function center is very large and heavy duty. Be careful when lifting so as not to put your back out like I did! I was impressed with the size as it surely felt like a solid piece of machinery, however be sure to clear ample space for it to live. Setup was a breeze. The paper instructions were easy to follow as well as the touchscreen instructions. I did not use the cds and my laptop and mobile connected easily. Wireless also connected on the first try and started downloading a software update. Ink cartridges were substantial and foolproof to insert.I loved the bright touchscreen as it was adjustable to your best viewing height. However, I noticed that it fumbled a few letters when typing in my email address and I have tiny hands! It did not give great tactile feedback almost as if I am pressing through a thick waterproof cover.My first prints came out with a little more noise than I had hoped for, but the quick speed makes the short amount of noise worth it. I did find a quiet mode, but did not notice much of a difference in noise or time. Prints were crisp, but color did not seem as vibrant as I had hoped. Printing from my mobile phone worked easily and seamlessly. Single pass duplex is an amazing feature as well, which I can see myself using often.Copying was cumbersome as half the time it did not register paper being added in the auto document feeder rather than on the glass resulting in a number of confusing blank page prints. Especially when I tried out the ink save mode and it printed me a blank page. I thought: wow that is one way to save ink! Until I realized it never fed the paper through. I then discovered it made a beep when the paper is properly inserted and ready to copy. I tried adding shortcuts to the main screen and found the process arduous and not that useful as you still have to access the shortcut menu to view your shortcut. Scanning to email via the shortcut was seeming to only work when you place a scan on the glass rather than the top feed. After 5 or so tries at reinserting the paper on the top I realized this. Only to have it give an error message that I did not have an email server properly configured and print a confusing out of memory transmission report. I tried via the scan button and scan to web, easy scan to email. It then took the page through the feed and sent me an email. However, I could not find the address book through this method and had to input my email address again. It also printed out another transmission verification report stating out of memory, although the scan did arrive in my email. I did not try the fax function or usb function.Overall, I am quite pleased with the print function and believe if I delved deeper into the copy and scan solutions I can hopefully work through the kinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed!I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. Item: Brother MFC-J5945DW InkJet Assembly: I received this item in exchange my unbiased opinion. The instructions were very clear and it made setting this up very easy. It is slightly heavy so I do recommend you have somebody to help you if it needs to be lifted up somewhere or carried long distances.Reliability: I found this printer to be very reliable, I did not run into any problems. With previous Brands I`ve ran into paper getting stuck or the printer freezing but with the Brother brand I am yet to have had any issue. This printer also seems very sturdy; I`m sure it will work well for a long time. Features: I love us simple it is to go from printing to copying and everything else. This printer is also the perfect size for an office or a home office. It`s not a small printer but it`s also not too big. When sending files from my phone or computer to the printer it only takes seconds for it to process and it is very quickly printed. The touch screen was slightly confusing at first and did take me some time to get use to. I was very happy that it came with the ink; it does seem to use slightly more than my last printer.Price: I definitely think the price is reasonable. It`s great quality and works wonders.Overall: Great printer, copier, scanner! I definitely recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price.Easy setup and user friendly. It doesn’t do everything, but it performs well at printing the 11” x 17” we need on occasion, all at the right price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printerI received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. I upgraded from a much smaller home printer to this one. I love how easy this printer is to use. Very user friendly interface, setup only took a few minutes and we were ready to go. I love the two sided printing option! Colors are true and text is crisp and clear. No complaints whatsoever. Highly recommend this product for your small business needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MFC-J5945DW is the absolute worst printer!I really did not want to move to a ink jet from a laser printer but based upon reviews went ahead. My mistake. This think jams all the time and I have wasted virtually all of the supplied ink on clearing jams and cleaning the "jets". If Brother does not replace ALL of the originally supplied four ink cartridges, I will return or junk this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit but...The unit works well and is a quality product but it is BIG. The recommendation came from two business friends whose needs are greater than mine. The fax hook-up is not as intuitive as the rest of it.
