Brother MFC-J985DW XL reviews

MFC-J985DW XL All-in-One Inkjet Printer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Printer The Brothers MTC-J985DW-Xl seems like a very decent printer. It provides all the capability I need at a good price and low per page cost. I have only had it about a month so only time will tell if my 4-star rating rating stands up. Easy to set up but I hard wired it rather than use the wireless. It sits next to my computer and I have no reason to ever printer from another device. The only issue is the fact that the usb cable port is very well hidden and I had to call Brothers to find it - you would think that Brothers would have at least one diagram showing were the USB port is located! Using with an iMac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. I love how it's super easy to install. I have a mac, so didn't have to bother with the install CD. It was also automatically accessible via my other devices once I had it hooked up to my wifi. The print itself is a teeny tiny smidge bit fuzzy, but it does the job I need it do. If I needed photo-quality prints I'd get a more expensive printer with better ink (and the bigger budget to match), but since I'm budget-conscious and only print for college papers and court docs, I'm pretty happy with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Brainer After hours of research, tons of reviews including major websites i decided to purchase Brother printer. I couldn't be more happy- one of the lowest cost per print, fast outstanding quality for such a compact machine. Since money wasnt object i considered even printers +$1000 - but with Brother you dont have to break the bank to have high quality printer for pennies. Simply no brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Brother Added to My Collection I like Brother printers & this model replaces a previous one that is almost 5 years old, which I am keeping as a standalone copier. This new printer included 3 sets of ink cartridges which is very handy to have in my inventory. One new feature that is great, when the paper tray is removed, a message on the display screen asks if I am changing type or size of paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for a good price I was tired of paying ridiculously high for cartridges. I never understood how customers let printer manufacturers take advantage of them with inflated ink prices. I am happy Brother gives an end to this. Finally there is a printer from Brother that comes with a reasonable price for print per page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ths is a terrific home printer. Amazed at all the features. Ths is a terrific home printer. Amazed at all the features. I bought the XL model which includes a two year supply of ink, probably a three year supply for me. I am finished buying the cheap printers and then spending a fortune replacing the ink cartridges. This is much better way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All In One I needed to replace my old Brother All In One and I decided to purchase this all in one that my office uses. It has all the features of my old one, only it's a lot smaller in size and doesn't take up as much space on my desk. So far, no issues to complain about.
