This multifunction inkjet printer from Brother was slow in our test, but it's quiet during use and easy to use. Features include: Automatic document feeder and borderless printing.

Brother MFC-795CW Wireless All-in-One Inkjet


The Brother MFC-795CW inkjet printer is certainly a jack of all trades but does it master them all?

Brother MFC-795CW


Continuing my examination of various Brother All-in-One devices brings the MFC-795CW into focus.

After using this All-in-One for a short period, I came across a problem when attempting to print a basic document. Instead of the document, all I got was a blank sheet of paper. Fortunately the problem was easily solved by running the unit’s cartridge...

Not too Shabby


Some people complain about the quality of the printing but I can't complain. Sure it takes a while but I don't print too much. Glad that I can print from any computer / iPhone in my house. Easy to set up too!

Looked like a great uinit, printed perfectly, setup was easy as a USB plug and a driver install

Until I turned it on. Gears were slipping and grinding, disabling the scanner. Unfortunately, since the scanner couldn't seat itself, the rest of the machine was locked in an error state. Called BROTHER, got snippy responses from a call center worker...

Not good as a printer


Good as a fax machine (works with Vonage), scanning is easy to use, nice touch screen and nice to have the paper tray. But wait, photos look like they are printed on one of those retail kiosks that use thermal paper (yes, even on highest quality photo...

Good Solid Do-It-All Machine


Wireless connection, answering machine, good software package for scanning, faxing and copying. Although not the fastest printer, it is fast enough for my use and it is a great buy for all the built in features. Small footprint also.

Product Specifications

The MFC-795CW sets a benchmark for providing professional quality printing while utilizing minimal office space thanks to the Brother ink tube delivery system. Using this system, the ink cartridges do not have to be situated above the print head, allowing a lower-profile end product. The low-profile product demonstrates Brother's ongoing commitment to meet the needs of small office and home office users by delivering outstanding value, quality and user-friendly features. It offers features to help consumers save on their printing costs, including a four-cartridge ink system and N-in-1 printing (which allows users to print multiple pages at a reduced size on one page). Additionally, the MFC-795CW also offers an extra ink save mode, allowing users to print only outlines of images.
