Brother MFC-J885DW review

 

Budget printers usually requires sacrifice in features or performance, but Brother's J885DW office MFP delivers on the things that matter, at a low cost of purchase.

Brother MFC-J885DW review: Outgunned by faster do-it-all printers

 

The Brother MFC-J885DW is married by slow print output, mediocre features and a flimsy feeling build quality.

The ink cartridges on the Brother MFC-J885DW cost less to refill than other name-brand printers and the output quality is also commendable down to small fonts and faint lines.

The plastic materials cheapen the overall feel of the printer, the 100-sheet paper input capacity will likely be too small for the average small office, and the output speed is lacking compared to the competition.

Brother certainly makes a lot of very respectable work-friendly all-in-one printers, but the J885DW isn't one of them.
