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

Excellent for our needs

 

Had always been happy with Brother printers, so as we had a need for A3 scanning, and needed network capability, this looked the goods. I read the unhappy reviews here before purchasing, but as I couldn't see too many other options, I decide to take a...

Great value for money

 

I needed an A3 Printer. Bought this one because it was cheap. Easy set up. Print quality is good for the money. Ink cartridges aren't that expensive. I'm happy. For $200 ...can't complain. I have 3 computers XP, windows ..7 and windows 8. Wi Fi setup...

What I would expect for the price

 

I wanted an a3 printer, while the print quality isn't the best its about what i expected for the price. easy to install, after my old canon was a nightmare to install over a network the brother seemed to install effortlessly. i would recommend it as a...

Dont bother

 

Recently I purchased this printer wanting to upgrade from my cannon, in the shop it sounded great - big paper tray A3 printing etc. When I started to use it I ended up with 1/2 printed documents - blurry print and inability to print properly on any...

Does not pick up just one sheet of paper, endless paper jam warnings when there is no paper stuck, blurred printing
