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 to continually switch back and forth between letter- and tabloid-size paper, you should be looking at a printer with two paper trays. The Editors' Choice Brother MFC-J6920DW would be a prime candidate if you need to scan at tabloid size as...

Brother MFC-J6510DW

 

The Brother MFC-J6510DW is the lowest-cost solution we've seen for both printing and scanning at tabloid size.

Prints and scans at up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches). Automatic document feeder. Duplex (two-sided) printing.

Only one paper tray means you can't keep letter- and tabloid-size paper loaded at the same time.

Brother MFC-J6520DW Review and Ratings

 

This high-volume, business-centric AIO prints good-looking business documents, and it prints, scans, copies, and faxes 11x17-inch pages at a surprisingly low cost per page. The main shortfall: paper handling.

Relatively speedy for its price and class ; Wide support for cloud and mobile-device printing ; Prints, copies, scans, and faxes in tabloid (11x17-inch) format ; Low cost per page ; Roomy paper tray

Subpar photo printing ; Only one paper drawer

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

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

Brother MFC-J6510DW

 

A large format A3 all-in-one that doesn't take up half an office and offers low running costs into the bargain.

Full A3 print, scan and copy, ADF for auto-scans up to A3, Widescreen LCD

Fuzzy plain-paper, black text print, No duplex scanning, No multi-purpose feed

I didn’t have time to try out the PaperPort SE software which was supplied with the MFC-J6510DW for turning paper documents into a digital form and organising them. Nevertheless, overall, I found that the MFC performed well as an office multi-function...

Brother MFC-J6510DW

 

Brother finally updates its A3 inkjet all-in-one, offering high quality at a surprisingly low price

Massively improved print speed and quality, and very low running costs. The scanner isn’t perfect, but it's a superb deal

Consumer review by: ITSupportGuy (newegg.com)

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...
