Brother MFC-J6930DW


This business-centric color inkjet all-in-one printer is relatively fast, with good print quality, competitively low running costs, and flexible paper handling.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes tabloid-size pages. Competitively fast. Low running costs. Single-pass auto-duplexing ADF. Three paper input sources. Good print quality overall.

Subpar graphics.

In addition, while both the Epson WF-7620 and WF-7610 are capable AIOs, since they've been out for so long, their running costs are excessive—Epson needs to update its wide-format WorkForce models. On the other hand, the MFC-J6930DW is more than...

Brother MFC-J6930DW review

  (Rating Hidden)

Great printer. Does everything


This is truly an office style unit though I bought it because it can scan anything up to 11 x 17 inches. I find that when you run this printing it sounds like a true machine. When I use another brand it sounds more like a toy

This is the most incredible printer we have owned!


We have a number of printers in the office but this printer by far is the BEST. It was purchased to replace a retired Brother MFC6490CW that has worked flawlessly for over 4 years and printed 10s of thousands of pages. It is incredibly fast and best of...
