Brother MFC-885CW review

 

Brother's MFC-885CW is relatively expensive for a colour-inkjet multifunction peripheral (MFP), but it has plenty of features to justify its price.

Brother MFC-885CW: printer that does absolutely everything

 

This is one of the most complete office multifunction printers we've ever seen. but the MFC-885CW can't overcome its price or quality issues.

Brother MFU MFC 885CW

 

This is a multi function unit (MFU) as it has a fax and it also has a wireless phone unit attached to the side. I remember reviewing many units with phones attached but never a wireless one.

It is 36x39x18cm with the phone and it's socket adding 8cm to the 39cm width. The power lead fits at the rear of the left side well behind the phone so needs to further space, note I said power lead as there is no external power brick. The USB cable...

The competition amongst All-in-One printers sees no sign of cooling down, with all the principal manufacturers trying to add that one extra feature that should - at least temporarily - keep the rest of the pack ...

Brother's latest multifunction printer scores good marks for wireless connectivity, impressive fax connectivity and the new widescreen LCD facility for picture previews, but has minor issues with scanner picture quality at the default setting and photo...

Fantastic Bargain

 

I bought the Brother to replace my Panasonic Fax which was poorly designed. The Brother is much better at half the price. We fax dozens of daily specials to our customers. One of the employees liked the Brother so much she bought one for her home.

Piece of Junk !

 

IT'S THE EXACT SAME PRINTER & PRINT HEAD AS THE FLAWED BROTHER MFC-665CW ! ! ! BEWARE !

Works great....until the print head gives out ; A known issue with both this and it's little brother, the MFC-665CW....identical printers except for the antenna. Same print head, everything

Bought the MFC-665CW just under a year ago. After about 6 months, the printer started claiming the ink-paks were dry. Replaced them at considerable expense, continued to clamor for new cartridges. After Googling the printer, found out about the print...
