Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Printer, Lousy software The printer itself is very good. What is horrible is the software that drives it. I don't know if they are just not supporting Windows 10 or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need more ink The printer is great and prints beautifully, but it is so new the ink is hard to find in a small town. It takes a week or 2 to get it through Amazon. Even the brother website is out of stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emails I had a hard time printing from my phone. I can now print but I can't print emails from my phone. I have to get on the computer to print emails. It's annoying. Once I got it setup it prints nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Designed Printer!!! This printer is excellent for printing multiple size sheets, including 11x17 for engineering drawings. With it's multiple trays, it can provide automatic document feeding for different size drawings (one does not have to manual feed 11x17 sizes as other large format printers require). Setup was very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from J6945DW - 2 years and I hate it! It was working really well for about 2 years and now it's stressing me out. So tired of malfunctioning equipment. missing lines, colors wrong, misshapen letters, I could go on. If i do the full clean routine I can print a few more pages that look correct and then no more. Will never buy Brother again. Huge cost - huge machine off to the garbage!! If this printer is anything like it's predecessor - don't buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality multi purpose printer I do a decent amount of printing in my home. Between work documents, school projects for the kids, and miscellaneous print jobs, I also use a good amount of both black and colored ink. This was my first time trying the Brother brand and overall, I’m very impressed. The first noticeable attribute of the printer is the weight. This is a pretty heavy duty unit to pick up and move around. I highly recommend having an extra set of hands when setting it up. While heavy and a bit bulky, you know that it’s well built and durable. The setup process was straightforward. Even if your aren’t that tech savvy, the directions are fairly clear and direct. It took me about 20 minutes from out of the box to fully up and running. I do recommend connecting it to your WiFi to enable you to print from anywhere and from any device. Quality wise, this printer is impressive. It’s a noticeable set up from a standard home printer and will give you noticeably clearer and shaper professional looking documents. Also having the ability to print 11x17 with ease is a nice feature. I’ve printed over 75 pages in one job and the printer handled it with ease, efficiency, and quality output. There are many bells and whistles too. From faxing, to scanning, to secure printing, to printing with Alexa, there are many functions for you to get any job done. While you may not have a need for every single function, knowing that they are there gives you peace of mind in case you have that one unique job that demands it. In my option, this is a perfect all in one printer for a small home office or business. It’ll print high quality and professional looking documents and can also print large volumes very efficiently. I think this printer is a bit too advanced to have at home if you only print a few documents here and there and don’t care about larger scale printing. The “INKVestment” feature is neat and will save you money in the long run, but only if you actually use it enough. Just make sure to figure out exactly what you need from a printer before going with this one. If you do go with it, it won’t let you down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a multi function printer This is really perfect set it has multiple ink and comes with app easy to connect and print along with 1 year of ink supply which is amazing and worth it. It can also connect to cloud services and be very tech savvy you can print both sides and 2 trays and fax too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra fast and has everything I need My 10 years old printer needed a major upgrade so I decided to get this MFC-J6955DW Brother INKvestment Tank color inkjet all-in-one Printer which really has everything I need. When I saw the specifications of the MFC-J6955DW Brother printer, I decided to get it as it included a copier, a scanner, a fax, an autofeed document, does duplex and has wireless capability. My main criteria were wireless printing, large ink capacity, duplex copy, super fast printing and this new printer really has it all. Out of the box, the unit is very nice and compact and easily fits under my desk. The quality of the unit is pretty nice, the color LCD screen is very easy to use. Setting it up was very straightforward and easy and took me less than 15 minutes. I print quite a lot for work and for the kids’ projects and the cost of cartridges was becoming a major issue especially when it comes to inkjet as we have to replace the cartridges all the time so I was very pleased to know that I would not have to purchase cartridges as often with this new printer. When it comes to performance, everything I printed out, color or black and white was very nice. The speed is also very good for an inkjet printer. All in all, I am very satisfied with our new brother printer which has everything I want and it goes without saying that it gets a perfect 5 stars rating from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dick I originally wanted to purchase the MFC-J5945 model starting in December 2021. I was looking for a printer that had duplex scan capability. They were always out of stock. I looked at the competition and was just never satisfied with their features or ink purchase requirements. So I limped along until about one month ago when the MFC-J6955 was released as its replacement. The price was increased but it had all the features I was looking for. Personally, the 11x17 capability is something that I didn’t really need but came along. I installed the unit with relative ease. The only trick was the need to reboot my router and the unit in order to get them to find each other. I downloaded the drivers from the Brother’s website. Since then, it has worked flawlessly. Every time I try a new feature it worked. It’s fast. The print is great. The printer plays well with my Apple Pro. Every Apple software update has been installed with flawless performance of the printer. Not so with my previous Cannon printer. About the only feature I have not tried is photo quality prints. The one major negative is the Brother website itself. It is extremely slow to respond and very frustrating to navigate. They should really address this issue. They just redid their webpage and this was not improved. Overall, the printer has been excellent and well worth my approximately 7 month wait for Brother to have printers available. Only time will tell how the printer continues to perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent Printer Decent printer, colours not super vivid, we needed an 11x17 printer that would do colour, this fits the bill perfectly and not expensive. Came with a 'year's worth' of ink, remains to be seen, but so far haven't had to buy more ink, unlike other printers that you only get 50 pages out of the ink in the box so that is a huge plus. Overall a good printer, just wish the colour was more vivid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable overall and just works This one does it all without hiccups for use in home office. All features just worked out of the box - that is saying something about printers of this type. Coming from a smaller canon inkjet, connectivity options all work seamlessly and prints quickly esp. after not in action for few days. Automating workflows with single clicks is a good feature. Photos turn out from very good to above average. Few months into purchase and yet to face any trouble. Will see how long the ink lasts and how replacement costs pan out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall very good I initially received a printer with a broken cover which rendered it unworkable. As I work alone in my office only two days a week, I expected the exchange process to be challenging, since even repackaging the printer was difficult for me to do alone. However, Brother made the exchange process smooth and fast, and I greatly appreciate their efforts. After receiving the replacement printer, I have been very happy with its performance. The printer is fast and I no longer have to worry about running out of ink. Although I have noticed some stripes when printing photos, they do not bother me when printing documents. Eventually, I will need to seek support for this issue. I especially like that the printer can handle 11x17 papers. However, the ink cover (which was broken during the first shipment) seems fragile, and this is something that Brother could improve upon. Overall, I am pleased with my experience with Brother and would recommend their printers to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down huge improvement over HP I bought an HP because the Brother that had auto duplex scan was unavailable. HP replaced my printer and it still had the same problems—power button didn’t work and scanning was always coming up with unavailable or skewed documents. This is our third Brother and we love it. Auto duplex scan and 11x17 paper makes it the BEST.

Date published: 2023-05-08T00:00:00-04:00
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Document Management System My warning appeared as black marks on printouts from the rollers. I had been using the same brand of inkjet printers for decades. My benchmark had two-sided printing, copying and scanning; did not shake the table as the printheads were fixed; it was quieter than previous models; and I could drop a ream of paper in and forget it. The ink lasted a long time and printing costs were minimal. It lasted six years. Previously, the manufacturer declared they were discontinuing this model and they were demanding high ink consumption from buyers. So, I started evaluating other manufacturers’ offerings. I finally decided on Brother. And the closest fit was a color laser with an optional 500-sheet tray. However, all of my gear is connected to battery backups to facilitate orderly shutdowns. Laser printers and my battery backup were incompatible. Then, I focused on the Brother MFC-J6955DW without the single 500-sheet tray. I wanted to see one in-person, but they were not on display anywhere. Close cousins could be found at outlets. So that is what I sought for my print tests. It was quiet and fast. Navigating the screen was a breeze. The screen design is superior to the one I had as you don’t need stylus-shaped fingers. The hands-on experience was a positive one. I was excited about the possibility of ordering my own. This is a complex electrical/mechanical device with numerous functions and options. It is made in the Philippines, and sellers have a challenge keeping it in stock. The limited number of reviews compared to perceived online sales are an indication to me that buyers are satisfied with their purchases. LC406 cartridges are available at online sites and local stores. What’s not to love about cartridges? No mess, no fuss, just pop out the old one for recycling, and pop in the new one. Resume printing. Add paper, and you are set to go. The two 250-sheet trays work in tandem like one 500-sheet tray. Besides the quick start card in the carton, there are online documents available to bookmark/print all/selected pages, along with videos on various topics. Lots of available info. And it comes with $100 of ink cartridges, and a two-year warranty. Not a bad deal. As for its large footprint, I decided to use the end (instead of the side) of a 72x30 inch table. Once I felt I had expended enough ink from my old printer, I ordered my J6955 from Brother. It arrived sooner than other vendors promised. As for unpacking the new arrival, I had studied the website-provided quick-start guide, and the online videos about the process. An office chair was used to move the printer from the front door to my office, making it easy to move it to the table top. I opened the top of the carton to remove the loose items, then tilted the box on the printer’s back to slide it out of the box, put it back on its base, and remove the styrofoam. I have a wireless network and Macs. Installation went well. I am able to perform all the necessary tasks as before as the software panels appear to be the same and have gained some additional options. Printing is faster and quieter which means less noise, and photos are better quality too. Overall, the change appears to be a plus. In summary, I have had this for a month and, it appears I made a good choice and my ink should last a year. Happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic All-In-One Printer I did a lot of research and read many reviews for several different printers before deciding on this one. It is a fantastic all-in-one printer. Quality is extremely good with vibrant colors and easy to use. Scanning process is perfect. Network availability makes it even more usable. Have not used fax and probably will not as a home printer. My only negative is the size of the printer but I have adjusted and it is not particular issue. I would recommend to anyone needed this type printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awful, Useless Printer If I could give this printer zero stars, I would. Do yourself a favor and buy a different printer, anything else but this piece of junk! We use this printer in our small office, and it started out okay. Had a few issues with setting it up and getting it to work, but since then it has gone downhill. Every day, sometimes multiple times a day, we have to do a "maintenance cleaning" to unclog the printhead nozzles. Until we do so, our print quality is awful- text missing, colors not printing correctly. To do the cleaning, you have to print test pages multiple times, which is a huge waste of ink. Between printing the test pages and all the pages I've thrown away that the quality was so bad, I've probably thrown out a few cartridges worth of ink. Ink that - mind you - is EXTREMELY hard to find, out of stock everywhere! Brother only gives you 30 days for a full refund, seems like they don't have much faith in their product either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish old MFC-J6710DW was back in lieu of the new The old MFC-J6710DW was so much better in terms of functionality - too bad it finally croaked. The new MFC-J6955DW does NOT allow you to stick a single sheet anywhere to print later on the second side. The old MFC-J6710DW would allow you to place it in the back feed and print on the other side regardless of the sheet size AND be automatically recognized. The new MFC-J6955DW ink is suppose to last one year but it is already depleted by about 20 percent and we've only had it for about a month for private home use (not home office). The old MFC-J6710DW would scan documents in portrait mode whereas the new MFC-J6955DW scans in landscape mode forcing documents, such as PDF, to be rotated and not for free!!! The old MFC-J6710DW would allow the fax ringer to be turned off whereas the new MFC-J6955DW only allows the ringer in 'low' mode but is in fact very loud! And annoying! The old MFC-J6710DW had actual buttons which were very convenient taken over on the new MFC-J6955DW with a small screen requiring time consuming accurate inputs or else. And so on and on, etc. The new MFC-J6955DW does print faster than the old MFC-J6710DW but that gain in speed would be given up in a heart beat for better functionality. Oh, was it mentioned that the new MFC-J6955DW 'Online User Guide' should actually give real help?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Printer Fast Printer, Ink cartridges last a long time, great value for the price. Only drawback is the cartridges are changed from the MFC-J6945DW which currently have as well (which still works amazingly well), now we need to order 2 different types of cartridges for our printers. Other than that, excellent quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Printer - Brother not able to keep up with ink Bought this printer because of the features it has, such as large scanner and able to print larger paper. Print quailty is good but Brother is having a hard time providing ink for this printer. The claim of "almost one year of ink" is just a gimmick. Yes, I know and understand that we all print different things and that the ink will last longer for some and shorter for others. But what is happening now is that once I run out of Ink, I won't be able to use this printer until Brother or others releases ink that this printer can use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving It! I was a bit unnerved at the massive size of the beast at first, but WOW, I love it. It was so easy to set up and the functionality of an office machine in my home office is brilliant!!! In more than 45 years, I have never been disappointed with a Brother machine; beginning with my first sewing machine in 1978 (AND IT'S STILL IN USE)! Thank you for manufacturing such reliable products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Printing is good but scanner is weak. I had a previous Brother model with a 11 x 17 inch scanner table and not only did it print well but scanned images very close to the original photo. The scanner with the Brother MFC-J6955DW makes the images come out darker and the quality becomes degraded. My only theory is with the previous model the light bar when scanning was so bright you could not look at it. With this model if you look at the light while scanning, your eyes can tolerate the brightness. It is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great fast 11x17 printer & Scanner I love this Printer/Scanner. It does great document scanning in the 11 x 17 size as well as the normal 8-1/2 x 11. It is amazingly fast at printing the regular size paper as well. And pretty fast at printing the 11x17 Ledger size. It will scan double size papers in one pass using the sheet feeder which speeds up the scanning. I have used the sheet feeder on 8-½ x 11 and 11 x17 papers and it works great. I have scanned on the flatbed as well and it will do the 8-1/2 x 14 legal size as well. I have not used the envelope sheet yet though. I would recommend this for anyone who needs a 11 x17 scanner or printer in a home environment.

I will be selling this expensive useless machine and going back to HP...never buy another Brother printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine - don't believe year of ink Great Machine - don't believe the year of ink claim. I ran out of blue ink the first week of using the printer. I could not print using black ink only. So had to run out to get ink. It is a great machine - copies well - two sided copies, scan, etc. Just don't believe the claim of up to a year of ink in the box. Very poor claim - maybe you do get a year worth of ink if you do not use the copier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful printer! I run a side business where I am constantly printing things out. I have went through many printers and not been satisfied until this printer model got in my hands. I love the different trays and how many kinds of papers I can put in here. I love making cards with this printer because setup is so easy. The ink is bold and prints so well. This is a quick printer that gives amazing results when it comes to printing. I can get so much more done with how easy and quick it is. The best part is being able to print from my phone and tablet. Setup was quick and easy to do after reading the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multifunction Printer/Scanner Upfront, I have not used this as a FAX machine, and I honestly don't remember the last time I used one. But based on how everything else works, I venture a guess and say the FAX is great too. What I have used is the printer (b&w and color) and scanner. First, setting it up was easy. No complicated hoops to jump through only get it all plugged in and put the ink tanks in and scan the QR code to download the app on your phone and BAM! it scans the wifi for the printer and sets it up. Now for the printer, I've used a few different paper weights when printing and the only issue I've had has been with DIY business cards from Avery. because of the way the multifunction tray pulls the paper in (sideways rather than from the bottom) it has a tendency to rip the easy tear sides from the cards and can cause a jam in the printer. I haven't had this issue before with printers the pull the paper in from the bottom. Otherwise, the printer is beyond quick, in both color and b&w and prints a great image. The scanner is also great. It's quick, detailed and precise with what its scanning. In teh end, keep an eye on the business card paper, but don't worry about anything else, its a great home office printstation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Great Printer! Large Size A4 What a fantastic printer! I purchased the printer for a small office enviroment where our CAD guys print out 11x17 and 8.5 x 11 prints from Solidworks, Excel, and Outlook 365. This printer is amazing at the various print sizes, but still has the options to print/scan/fax. The printer is LARGE for a desktop model, and I would highly recommend setting up on it's own printer table. I have it on my office cubical desk right now, and let me tell you there's not much room left on my small cube to eat my lunch. I love the fact that the printer is easy to configure, and has everything you want from a printer of this size and caliber. It has Wireless printing (Direct and WiFi connection printing. You can AirPrint, you can NFC print, and even a USB port with a flash drive print. I think my ONLY complaint on the printer is the short power cord. It's not a detachable power cord either, it is hard wired to the back of he printer and might be a 8ft cord. It's good enough, but I would like to see an extra 2 ft or 4ft cord on this thing, or at least the standard 3 hole computer plug cable so we can supply our longer cord if needed. Overall, if that's all I can find to complain about then you're doing really good. The printer takes 4 cartridges, Yellow, Cyan, Magenta, and Black. I'm highly impressed with how easy they are to install, and how easy they are to remove! A simple door on the front of the printer and out they go. The features are great on this thing, but for me the best part is that it prints 11x17 and 8.5x11. One tray each and you can print anything your heart desires and still have a manual feed tray for the special label paper / photo paper. It does 2 sided prints, and it's even a scanner!! I set it up on my O365 network, and now it will email me my scans wirelessly! What else could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s been amazing This printer has been amazing. My husband has been working from home since 2020 and our old printer was on its last legs. We got this printer and it’s been amazing. He needs high quality prints and this has been delivering. It prints fast as well. It was easy to set up and comes with full size ink cartridges. Which is awesome. Being able to print wirelessly has been great as well for both of us. Can’t wait to put this printer more to the test and see what it can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great device I received this and immediately opened it up, read the instructions for connections and startup. It connected quickly and easily to my windows PC as well as my iPhone. I tested printing and its super fast and quiet. I also tried out the scanning functionality and that was quick also. Super easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Office Printer!! I own an IT consulting firm and got this printer for the office. It works great and is very easy to use. The print quality is excellent and I like that it can handle 11x17 paper as well as letter. I’ve had zero issues, it’s a great printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing Having two of us in the house in college, having a reliable printer is an absolute must. This Brother printer took things to the next level for us. I don't know what I am more pleased with, the ease of connectivity with multiple devices or how quickly it prints. We don't have to wait around long anymore and that is a life saver in and of itself. We have printed so much already and haven't even made a dent in the ink. I never knew a printer would assist in simplifying life so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Brother, but also being honest Supposedly equipped with a "1 Year Supply" of Ink, I am now on my 2nd set (of expensive Brother inks) printing in what I think is NOT very demanding quantities, in just THREE months. The quality is very good, and I hope the printer will use less ink as it breaks in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from intermediate price printer for low cost printing It is the best home office printer with wireless capability, printer memory, printing speed, over the air wireless update, low cost ink printing per page, recycled paper, duplex. Easy wifi network setup and update without computer help and printer wire. User friendly to setup with pamphlet available without reading a thick manual that people forget over time. Photo printing is available if specialized photo paper from brother is used for amazing, long lasting photo because inks fade faster than pigments but brother photo paper solves this problem. This is cheaper than laser printing and laser printers can't print photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generally quite pleased, but ... Generally pleased but I really miss one feature that I had on my now defunct MFC-6930DW - the ability to choose scan parameters on the LCD screen. Formerly I could choose bw/color, dpi, and the like at the machine - rather than having to set those choices while at my computer. I hope you'll update the firmware to provide more LCD choices. And, I was disappointed that the ink cartridges supplied were only half-full - year's supply only qualified in the very fine print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best printer ever!!! I bought this printer as a test since I had buy during years a different brand with bulk ink option too, and the first thing that I noticed when I bought this printer was the high printing speed, I would not sayed I was surprised, I was abolutely impressed by the speed and high quality compared to the other brand that is let's say more famous than brother, but this printer has been an absolute game changer in my office, every body loves it. With the initial cartridges that the printer came we were able to print around 3000 color pages, always fast and on very high quality, so we decided to buy glossy paper to start printing photos, and we were amazed with the quality of the photo pictures, the best part is that we start printing a lot of photos without been worried for ink, since those cartridges last forever, when we bought the XL cartridges and printing a lot of pictures on best quality, we reach around 5500 pages, something impressive for printing mainly photos and color pages. The scanning options are also amazing, been able to scan double sized on letter, and one size on 11x17, I highly recommend to download the full drivers to get all the advantages of this amazin printer. After this printer I am married with Brother printers, in more than 2 years we have had absolutely no issue with the printer despite the big volume we print, and the cost benefit with our printing volume is pretty amazing, and never scarifying the quality. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My much appreciated Brother MFC-J6955DW Years ago I purchased a very expensive hi-speed Xerox color Laser printer (6 times the cost of this printer) and has nothing but problems with it. This brother printer is faster, cleaner, far simpler to use and far cheaper to run and it does everything the Xerox did and much more - it scans, it faxes, it copies, as well as the basic printing single sided and duplex. I am delighted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Printer - MFC-J6955DW I am donating this printer to a local charity. This was the worst printer I have ever owned. A nightmare to install. It kept telling me to add A5 paper or I was out of paper - this was not the case. Trying to get it setup to print on letter or legal size paper was trying. I never did get it to print on legal paper. After 3 weeks of struggles and disruption of work, putting me behind in everything. I bought a new printer - from HP. Easy to install and working great. Sorry Brother, but never again. I tried to find a phone number for help from your company but could not locate one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Overall High Volume Printer This is an updated version of a printer that I have elsewhere. Not the best for pictures, but a great printer for everyday use. The ability to double side copy with one pass is great for our needs, and it prints relatively quickly. Cost per copy is reasonable and the high volume ink wells provide for many pages before replacing.

Just know that it takes a while to sync up for iPhones (easiest), MacBooks (hardest), PC, etc. The display pad on the printer itself is a bit dated. The scan Q.R. code feature is “new tech.” But entering info for other functions requires long form entry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good printer value Very easy to use. Paper loads well and easily. Prints quicker than other inkjet printers Ive had. Loads well. Printer dialog box makes it easy to switch between paper trays. Biggest drawback so far is that double-sided printing cause paper jams more than Id like. It is likely because its an inkjet and the paper is not stiff after 1side is done. For a mid-price pri ter it does a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and high quality workhorse printer This is our second brother printer and after having many years of reliability and quality from a monochrome laser printer it was time to upgrade our color inkjet and looking all of the high ink capacity options it was an easy choice to go with brother again. This is a small office/home office workhorse with fast print speeds, great quality and excellent features. After a few weeks of use it has performed as advertised and was an easy unit to quickly set up and get printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty wireless printing for home and office This is a dynamic printer for small business or home users who tend to print a lot at home and does not want to be worried about the ongoing cost of the ink. This printer prints sharp images, text, and graphics at 30 prints per minute print speed. This is an all-in-one printer which can print, scan, fax and copy 11”x17” page sizes and comes with a second tray which has 500 pages capacity and single pass duplex copy and scan capabilities. The single pass duplex can copy and scan 50 pages at a time automatically through the document feeder. It also has an NFC badge ready for easy authentication. The printer comes with 1 year ink in the box assuming we are printing at 300 pages per month. It has built in dual band wireless connectivity and can work on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. It is also possible to connect through ethernet and works with Alexa voice commands. The printing and other features can also be used through the Brother Mobile Connect App. It also supports auto printing from cloud apps such as Drobox, Google Drive, Evernote, OneNote. It has a 3.5-inch color touchscreen which saves time by setting up custom shortcuts on the screen for frequently used functions. It also supports Eco Mode and Ink Save Mode. This printer has been a great addition to our home since we have to print hundreds of pages for kids’ school and assignment work and now, we don’t have to purchase ink refill frequently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All-in-one ko Printer This is a terrific printer . I've had my printer for few week now and I really love it. I loved this ALL IN ONE printer unit. I am able to print ,scan to my photo album and copy documents from my IPhone. This was so easy to set up and I love all the features that it has.All In all it took about 45 minutes from unboxing -installing-setup -to take my first print. All you have to do is plug it up, follow the directions in touchscreen panel ,put in the ink cartridges and download the app to operate it through your phone/computer . The app literally tells you what to do. Touch screen is really high quality, very sensitive and accurate.,Also you can adjust the screen panel.If you're looking for all in one quality printer, then this is the one for you. Feature to print or scan directly from or to a flash drive is great.Scan and copy speed with this printer is much faster than my last printer.The paper tray actually holds a large number than our last unit.It has two paper feed sections,each tray can hold up-to 250 paper at a time .The power cord is a great length.Print quality is beautiful and better than anything. I found the consistency of ink flow and distribution of colors was good. The colors are very accurate and vibrant. it's actually quiet when printing. Hopefully this printer will last many years. I'm very happy with performance and overall quality. I've had an absolutely fantastic experience printing art and photos and documents with the printer. Printed on high quality lustre paper and it's beautiful. Regular photopaper looks great too.Overall printer is rocking so far.I can say confidently-this is the best quality printer I've owned. Surely deserve 5 star and 100 % recommendations!!

I really needed something at home to print 11x17, and as smart as possible. This printer has been perfect! Setup took less than 15 minutes and I can actually print 11x17 email attachments from my phone! Another great and surprising features is quiet mode- we have a 2yr old and his room is next to my office- so quiet mode is pretty great. The print speed and print quality are really great, couldn’t ask for anything else from an at-home printer!

It has a nice sized screen to navigate the menus to set everything up. It prints really quickly and prints great quality. We have printed out a few photos so far and the quality is very quite nice. The printer itself is a little larger then I would have liked for my home but I can live it it since the printer does such a nice job. I would recommend this to you if your looking for a nice printer that is easy to use and setup for your house or office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for home and small businesses The installation is easy I mostly use the wireless option when print and I can even directly print it outright from my cellphone. The large screen makes scanning and copying a lot easier. I like the fact that I can print on both sides automatically. 2 side auto scan is a game changer. This printer can handle lots of work ideal for home and small businesses. The cartridges claims to last thousands of pages but I haven’t had that much chance to try this aspect of the printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very disappointed The primary paper types we expect to use in our new printer are US-letter and 4x6 photo. We bought this printer in part because it has two paper trays to leave these paper types loaded unless doing something uncommon. On this printer, the 4x6 photo paper only goes in tray-1, tray-2 does not support this size. OK. Another reason for selecting this printer was the expected ease of making copies. With a duplex document feeder it should be just; put the document in the feeder and press a button or two. NOT. The default settings on the copy function automatically copy the document to tray-1, the 4x6 photo paper, not good for copying. These settings can be changed, of course. There is an option in the settings menu to set new defaults. Unfortunately this doesn't work. Setting new defaults does nothing at all and the next copy will be on the photo paper again unless you go into the menu and make selections. After almost two hours on the glacial support chat I was assured by the support tech that this is how it's supposed to work. The "Set Default" option is supposed to do nothing at all and you always have to take extra steps in the menu to copy a letter or any simple document. Either the tech support has no idea what they are talking about, the printer is buggy, or it's a terrible design choice. In any case I'm very disappointed in my first experience with Brother. I can hardly wait to see what other expected features don't actually work.
