Brother MFC-J6510DW

 

Probably the single most attention-grabbing fact about the Brother MFC-J6510DW ($250 street) is how much it delivers for the price. One of only a few inkjet printers that can print at up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches), it's also one of the most...

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

In addition to both printing and scanning at up to tabloid size, the Brother MFC-J6510DW faxes over a network and works as a standalone copier and fax machine.

Brother MFC-J6510DW review

 

Brother's new affordable A3 printer also photocopies, scans and faxes

Solid, robust build ; Acceptable print quality ; Good print speeds ; Cheap to buy and run ; As compact as it can be

but still bulky ; Text a little washed out ; Only one paper tray ; Rear feeder only single sheet ; Photo prints lack vibrancy

The Brother MFC-J6510DW A3 multifunction device is competent, but unremarkable. It's easy to use, robustly built and as compact as an A3 printer can possibly be, but its print results are serviceable rather than stellar. It's good for low-cost, casual...

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

Brother provides drivers for Windows and OS X and if you're a Windows user, there's also a copy of Nuance PaperPort SE for document management and OCR.

Brother MFC-J6510DW review

 

If you need a printer that can cope with large A3 sheets, Brother's MFC-J6510DW is a fine option, thanks to its low price and good quality graphics output.

A3 printing and scanning ; Low running costs ; Good graphics print quality

Text could be cleaner and darker

The MFC-J6510DW does a great job of printing graphics and photos on A4 as well as large A3-sized sheets. It has an abundance of features and it's reasonably cheap to run and quick to use. I find it hard to fault an all-in-one A3 printer and scanner at...

Brother's Latest Office A3 MFP : Brother MFC-J6510 Multi-function A3 printer

 

The Brother MFC-J6510DW all-in-one multifunction printer, copier, scanner and fax is an important machine in the company's professional MFP range. Its ability to handle A3 size documents which, although not an everyday requirement, is a feature which...

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 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

2 purchased; neither works correctly; awful support

 

Bought 2 of these in Jan., 2011 to be the primary all-in-ones for two of our offices, one in NC, one in SC. NC one worked ok for a few months (although it badly wrinkled all envelopes, which was frustrating), then started jamming non-stop. Could not...

Printed nicely while it worked

1 never worked quite right ; 1 broke completely after a few months ; customer support has completely failed ; been without a printer for TEN DAYS now ; even when the 1 machine worked for a while, it wrinkled envelopes badly

Worth Every Penny

 

Brother has proved to me that they can make an excellent product, I've pushed this unit onto many other artists and illustrators... everyone of them has thanked me for letting them know about product.

A3 high resolution scanner, pretty speedy scanning a full color (24bit) 11x17 @ 600 x 600dpi over wireless connection (avg about 23 seconds via twain in photoshop.) I've never experienced connectivity issues over wireless when printing from Desktop, 2...

Single sheet feeder is a little tricky, sometimes it will misfeed thicker papers. To solve this apply a little pressure on the paper when inserting into single sheet feeder, the feeder will recognize the paper and pull it in a little bit. Once it's...
