Brother's new $150 (as of September 27, 2011) MFC-J825DW color inkjet multifunction printer (print/scan/copy/fax) is a budget-friendly choice for your small or home office, enhanced by a few higher-end features--namely, CD/DVD printing and some Web...

Brother MFC-J825DW

 

The Brother MFC-J825DW ($150 street), also available as the MFC-835DW with only superficial differences, manages to largely match expectations for a Brother inkjet multi-function printer (MFP) while also providing a few surprises. Brother inkjets at...

Prints, scans, copies, faxes. Automatic document feeder. Connects with selected Web sites including Picasa and Google Docs

Low paper capacity. No paper handling options. Text quality is a touch below par for inkjet MFPs

The Brother MFC-J825DW offers a long list of features for both home and office needs, making it a strong contender for the dual role of home and home office MFP.

Excellent printer for the money

 

This is an amazing small footprint printer. I pointed it out first (at a sale price) to a friend who wanted a good printer at a reasonable price. As I did more research on it and found out it's features I bought one for myself. Now I'm back here to get...

Best budget MFP with fax

 

For a budget-priced printer, the Brother MFC-J825DW packs in an amazing variety of features. In addition to its built-in fax, it has a 3.3-inch LCD display, PictBridge and web connectivity, a wide range of memory card slots, and both wired and wireless...

Built-in fax, 3.3-inch color LCD, lots of connection options, cD and DVD printing, inexpensive

Grainy images, long scan times, slow when printing over network

Brother MFC-J825DW

 

We're noticing a pleasing trend in the market for color-inkjet all-in-one (AIO) printers—pleasing for buyers, anyway. These machines that do everything (print, copy, scan, and fax) keep on getting smaller and cheaper, all the while packing in the...

Prints, copies, scans well ; Strong performance ; Loaded with features for the price

Subpar image copying ; Slightly pricey ink ; Slow when printing pages in reverse order

This peppy little $149 all-in-one printer has all the features home businesses and small offices look for. It's a great value if you can stomach the slightly high ink costs.

Brother MFC-J825DW review

 

With its comprehensive set of features this MFP is a jack of all trades. It's pretty quick, but the results are unremarkable

Brother MFC-J825DW

 

A lot of useful features in the Brother MFC-J825DW, including new phone software, help gloss over its mediocre print quality.
