2 out of 5 eggsYou'll lose sleep

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Affordable

Cons: Do not buy if you sleep in the same room as the printer. The stupid thing wakes me up in the middle of the night to do some sort of ink cartridge maintenance. Noisy. Lights flashing on... I'm tired of literally losing sleep over this… contacted customer support who said there is no way to give it a schedule or a not-between-these-hours block. Also, I've had tons of connection issues, both with its wireless and usb connection. Setup for wireless is rarely straightforward, and never stays - it disappears with each restart of the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsBest All-In-One Printer I've Purchased

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: - Print and copy are good for an inkjet.
- The scanner does its job, though color is a little off.
- Haven't had a single paper jam in the past 2 years.
- Fairly easy to use and set up.
- Relatively small footprint.
- Replacement ink is competitively priced.
- Great value.

Cons: - The scanner could be a little better at picking up the right color.

Other Thoughts: - I highly recommend this product if you are looking for an All-In-One color printer.
- I've previously owned an HP OfficeJet Pro and a Dell All-In-One, and they both gave me issues. Particularly with HP, I find that their roller that picks up paper wears out very quickly. I haven't had any issues with this Brother MFC-J870dw.

5 out of 5 eggsMany Plusses

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Two great features rarely mentioned:
1) Can print directly on inkjet printable CD and DVD stock. Works very well. I make a lot of private music CD's and this is a great feature.
2) Brother makes several printers that use the same 101/103 ink cartridges. This is important. With other brands, I have had printers fail and am then stuck with cartridges that are useless.
As a final point, I think this printer wastes much less ink than others in that it does not constantly
"prime" the cartridges.

Cons: Only one that I can think of--because it does not have a straight paper feed path, you can use 67 lb paper max. If you need/want to use 110 lb cover stock, can't do it with this printer.

Other Thoughts: We have two of them--in two separate home offices--and have had none of the problems cited by other reviewers.

Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat! Perfect for the price!

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Had extremely fast shipping, and hook-up was super easy and fast. Does everything I need plus more. Pictures look good. The print speeds are the best I've seen for a color inkjet of this price. Would strongly recommend.

Cons: Really everything is as expected and with the price its not really a con, but I would have liked a plate on the bottom of the printer for protection and to reduce friction depending on surface the printer sets. The plastic sharp edges and plastic gears to adjust paper tray catch on certain surfaces.

Other Thoughts: A great buy!

1 out of 5 eggsPaper Jams

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Purchased on sale, so I didn't waste as much money as I might have.

Cons: The paper jams constantly. I'm using good quality paper that doesn't jam on any other printer I use. At this point, the printer is completely unusable. It hasn't printed successfully in the last 30 tries, so I've given up. I no longer have the box, and wouldn't want to waste the shipping expense to return the printer anyway.
The thing is, products like this reflect on Newegg as well as on the manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: I'm very disappointed and frustrated.

4 out of 5 eggsCapable printer, with caveats

This review is from: Brother MFC-J870dw Wireless InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer

Pros: Has worked flawlessly so far. Easy wireless setup, and holds wireless link. Fast. nice color and black text. Heavy, sturdy-- not cheap plastic junk. Should last a while.

Cons: This is not a photo printer. Photos are just ok, you will probably end up sending photos out for printing if you care about quality. But to be fair,it doesn't claim to be a photo printer. Second con is expensive ink. But again to be fair, it doesn't seem to be wasting ink.

Other Thoughts: As a business machine, I think this would be pretty acceptable if it wasn't overused. It's very sturdy. For home use it's great too, as long as you don't need to print high quality photos.
