Product Reviews
Brother MFC-J985DW - multifunction printer (color) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 531.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Works great. Not problems setting it up. Very pleased with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything works great! Everything works great! Easy to set up and connect. Small and compact. The paper feed tray is concealed until you need it, then it lifts up. Print quality is good, speed is good, the paper storage tray only holds 100 sheets, but for home office use that is no problem. Loading the paper tray is very easy. Large ink cartridges. It does require an additional step for me to access the Reverse Order print mode. I've had HP printers for decades and would take this Brother over any of the HP's I've had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great printer We have been using the printer for over a year now and really like it. We can print from anywhere in the house from all of our devices. It was a little hard initially to get the printer hooked up to all devices but after a few bugs were worked out over the phone, it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay Dirt I purchased the product in a fit of exasperation. I was tired of changing ink cartridges, some of which wouldn't work, on my previous printer. I did a quick search for printer reviews and this product rated pretty well. While I don't recommend doing 'quick review searches' for a printer -- but then I was exasperated. But then, I figured I accidentally hit pay dirt.When my Brother printer arrived I was pleased as punch to see so much ink, in nice big easily-to-plug canisters. I appreciate the fact that installation and set-up was easy.After a few months of use I am still pleased. Yeah, when I try to print something, it gurgles and pops for a moment or two, then makes up its mind to do what I wanted it to do. I learned that it is smart to extend the arm where the paper spits out -- otherwise the printed page will fly out, which my dog didn't appreciate. She jumped up and yelped when the page flew out and hit her. I have no complaints. I am a casual home user and am not frustrated that loading paper is not as simple as with some other printers. And I find it fascinating that periodically someone tries to phone my printer. The first time my printer-phone rang, I searched the house for five minutes trying to figure out what was ringing. I can only presume that the printer was getting called on its fax number although no faxes ever spit out. I am sure that I can disable this feature but it doesn't happen often enough to be an issue.As I said, I am a casual user. But for my purposes this is the best printer I have ever owned. Its print output, in both color and black and white, is clean and precise. Its speed suits me. And I have yet to change an ink cartridge.As I said, my quick search resulted in pay dirt for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Happy with my new Brother-MFC-J985DW SL The printer arrived quickly and set up fast and I was printing in color worry-free in 20 minutes. The most important function I require is the Scan to File, I use it extensively in my real estate business. Now I can print out color reports without always worrying about running out of color ink. After many hours of research, I found this printer to be the best value for the money, that comes with a 2 year supply of ink, that prints exceptionally well, and scans documents with precision. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frequently having to reset ink cart. does a nice job printing. I have to reset the ink cart about once a month, keep getting an error to reset. seems to be fairly efficient with ink. Quiet mode is not quiet.
