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-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'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

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

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

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 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...

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
