Brother MFC-J615w

 

The Brother MFC-J615w offers a good feature set for a home or micro office, or for a dual role of home and home-office MFP.

Good feature set for the price. ADF and fax. 3.3-inch LCD. 2-year warranty.

Sub-par photos and especially graphics.

It can print, copy, scan, and fax. It can print from or scan to media cards or a USB key, and scan to e-mail. It can fax either from its keypad or from a computer (PC Fax).

Good feature set for the price. ADF and fax. 3.3-inch LCD. 2-year warranty

The Brother MFC-J615w provides a good feature set and a large LCD screen for an MFP in its price range.

Brother MFC-J615W

 

The MFC-J615W packs a colour print engine, a 15-page automatic document feeder and compact dimensions

If speed isn’t a major concern the MFC-J615W is an inexpensive yet fully-featured all-in-one that will serve you well.

Brother MFC-J615W

 

A general-purpose all-in-one wireless inkjet, but nothing we haven't seen from numerous other Brother machines.

Brother - MFC-J615W

 

Brother recently released a plethora of colour inkjet all-in-one printers which sounded promising, but we were singularly unimpressed with the DCP-J715W at the bottom end of the range. The MFC-J615W is at the top of the ...

The MFC-J615W all-in-one printer is a solidly made, well labelled and easily connected machine that produces surprisingly high quality photo images but is dogged by slow speeds, a problem Brother needs to address.

Great Printer

 

really great printer, color is bright, prints faster than i thought for a small desktop unit, uses ink though, not a deal breaker, but annoying

Solid Printer with Cheap Ink

 

I got this on special for around 90 and it's probably been the best investment I've ever made for a printer. Through the wireless connection I can print from my plugged in Windows desktop and also through wireless from my laptop running Linux. Brother...
