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)

The Brother MFC-J6930DW is a fully-featured, office workhorse that can print up to A3 in size. It prints out photos in good quality, albeit at a sluggish speed. But what's it like overall for print quality? And are the printing costs affordable? Based...

Excellent Choice.

 

We deliberated over several different makes of multi-function printers before settling on this one. We were not disappointed, the print speed and quality is very good especially when printing photo quality. The unit is fairly easy to operate and so far...

Excellent All-rounder

 

This is an excellent device providing A4 and A3 printing/scanning and copying. Scan to email available after an ifax firmware download. Print quality is good and first page print time is fast. Solidly built, yet to come across any problems.

A3 Printing a bonus

 

I upgraded from a laser to this printer so I could print and scan A3 and I am very pleased. Still getting to grips with the paper trays and operation but it has a lot of features so not surprised. I went for this version as it has a dedicated A3 tray...

Great quality multi-function printer

 

Bought for home-office as I'm self employed, as an upgrade from A4 capability. This is the first Brother printer I've had, and can't fault it so far - having used all functions on the device, as well as several size/ quality of papers too. It handles...
