Brother MFC-665CW


This all-in-one printer doesn't set any performance records, but it packs many business-class features into a compact package.

Built-in Wi-Fi ; ADF, Fax and answering machine

Very slow printing, Slow fax speed of 14.4 kbps

The MFC-665cw includes Wi-Fi, fax, and an answering machine at a price that should appeal to small offices.

Brother MFC-665CW


The MFC-665CW truly defines the term 'all-in-one'. Besides the mandatory printer/scanner/copier capability that the category demands, it's also a fully functional fax machine. If that's not good enough, it also has support for all kinds of memory...

At its price point of Rs 15,700, its feature list leaves little to be desired (what about Bluetooth printing?). The MFC-665CW will ensure that your printer is easily accessible to everyone at home/small office, as all the required connectivity options...

Integrated 802.11b/g wireless networking, Easy to set up, Automatic document feeder, Compact design

Memory cards can't be read over the network, print speed was slightly slow

Brother's MFC-665CW has great features, is easy to set up and is well designed. It's suitable for a home office or for a small office environment.

Great wifi AIO printer


Linux drivers and support. Easy to setup and configure. Windows software was extremely easy to install and use. Quick and to the point software install, unlike HP's cluttered driver installations. Ink carts can be re-filled or OEM models can be used....

The paper tray is a bit flimsy

Cheap & good all-in-one


Very well designed printer. Regarding scanning - I have used other scanners with ADF and was surprised with this printer - in 6 months of usage it did not chew even once the paper when sucking it in with ADF. You also have the choice to use the bed for...

1. Linux drivers ; 2. RJ-45 (network port) ; 3. Wireless card built-in (802.11g) ; 4. Wireless supports WPA2 AES encryption (you need to turn SSID broadcast ON though on your router) ; 5. Power consumption Sleep/Standby/Peak - 6/8/34 W ; 6. Cartridges...

1.It turns itself on from time to time to clean jets. Some people claim that it eats cartridges really fast - my experience did not support it. I bought it from Newegg in April and finally replaced Cyan and Magenta cartridge in early November. My...

Great printer!


The wireless networking on this printer was very easy to setup and works great on all the computers in the house.

The automatic document feed can't handle very many pages.
