Brother MFC-J6520DW

 

The Brother MFC-J6520DW multifunction printer delivers fast speed, lots of features, and the ability to both print and scan at up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches).

Fast. Prints and scans paper up to tabloid size (11-by-17). Duplex printing (both sides at once)

Slightly subpar text quality. Less-than-stellar graphics and photos

If you need a micro- or home-office multifunction printer (MFP) that can both print and scan paper at up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches), you'll want to take a look at the Brother MFC-J6520DW ($229.99). It's basically a lower-cost alternative to the...

Brother MFC-J6520DW

 

Brother's MFC-J6520DW is a full A3 inkjet all-in-one which can scan and copy at this large size.

Full fax functions, High capacity ink options, USB, network and wireless connection

Paper feed very loud, WPS setup failed, No auto page-size detection

Brother MFC-J6520DW review

 

Dowdy, with unremarkable results. This A3 MFP's strongest feature is low costs

Despite its unremarkable performance and a couple of irritating foibles, this A3 MFP is cheap to buy and operate. Using XL cartridges, running costs work out to be around 4p for an A4 page, of which black costs are only 0.9p. This helps make it a fair...

Great home office printer, but

 

I will be returning this unit to Newegg and will replace it with the next model up.

I wanted to replace my Brother colour laser MFP as it was too big for my home office. The MFP-J6520DW fit the bill well ; smaller size ; handles 11x17 pages ; fairly fast at printing and scanning ; supports scan to cloud devices

The setup instructions were not clear at all (in the documentation and Brother site) on how to set up scan to email and scan to cloud services. These were not under the Scan option, but instead were under the Web option ; One big gotcha was that I knew...

Poor Color Quality; Irritating Quirks

 

There aren't a lot of choices for an 11 x 17 all in one printer, and they all have some drawbacks. I chose the Brother, but the poor color quality and many annoying quirks made me sorry I had. I bought this printer because I missed my old HP 11 x 17...

Large format scan and print. Convenient front panel

Slow when set to print double sided. Poor color intensity. Doesn't sense paper size. Nags incessantly about low ink when there's plenty of ink left

This one does it all.

 

I have had Brother printers before and I have been pleased with all of them. This one is better that the previous ones I have owned.

Great product

 

Does an excellent job of printing and copying. I have not yet tried to FAX. One nice feature, which I appreciate, is that the computer does not have to be on in order to make copies. This is a large machine and it holds a lot of paper.

Excellent

 

My husband bought this all in one printer and he is very happy about it, he spent a lot of time researching for a good and affordable printer. He says that the scanning into word is superb. Also it can print A3 documents which is very convenient for him.
