Good value


Good, very fast printer at a good price point. Have occasional problems with streaking, even after cleaning, and it will not handle a standard 3x5 index card. 4x6 works just fine.

Photo printing is not good


This is my second Brother all in one multi-function machine. For everyday use it is an excellent printer. However, for printing photos I find my Brother MFC-5490CN prints much clearer and better pictures than the MFC-J835DW printer. Based on all of...

OK Printer for Limited Purposes


I bought this to use mostly as a home office all-in-one. It has two major drawbacks for that use: 1) in order to print a letter, you have to remove the tray, insert letterhead, print the letter, remove the tray, insert the envelope, print the envelope,...

Another greeat Brother product


I have this printer next to my desktop. I scan to email quite a bit and this scanner does an excelent job. It copies and prints well also. I have not tried the cd printer, but if it works like everything else it should be fine. I gave this 5 stars...

Excellent Printer


I have had the printer for 3 months and very happy with it. It was easy to set up wirelessly and so far no issues with printing, copy and scanning.
