4 out of 5 eggsGreat home office printer, but

This review is from: Brother MFC-J6520DW Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: 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

Cons: 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 the unit was able to do duplex printing and thought it would do duplex scanning and/or duplex copying; however I soon discovered it supports only SIMPLEX scanning using the ADF. Duplex scanning is achieved on the flatbed scan but requires manual flipping of the page. I supposed this would be fine for those who infrequently do dual sided copying. This unfortunately is not my case. I have since found out I will need to step up to the next model MFC-J6920DW to get my duplex scanning.

Other Thoughts: I will be returning this unit to Newegg and will replace it with the next model up.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Color Quality; Irritating Quirks

This review is from: Brother MFC-J6520DW Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: Large format scan and print. Convenient front panel.

Cons: 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.

Other Thoughts: 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 for making occasional signs and posters, and wanted to save paper while printing double sided. But the color intensity and accuracy is nowhere near as good as my former and current HP printers.

The worst thing is that it takes 24 seconds just to print one page, if it's set to double sided. It's not smart enough to know when the page isn't printed on the back, so needlessly goes through the whole double sided, ink drying process.

It starts popping up “low ink” messages when there’s still plenty of ink, and keeps putting them up incessantly. I printed well over 100 more pages before the black starter cartridge ran out. I guess they just want to sell more cartridges.

When I load and print on 11 x 17 paper, it says the wrong size is loaded, but if I ignore the message and continue, it prints fine. After two email exchanges and an hour on the phone with a tech, I was informed that it works that way. So every time I switch paper sizes I need to set the size in the preferences. My old HP knew what size was loaded.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Brother MFC-J6520DW Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer

Pros: It's big, but not as big as some other comparable ledger-duty machines. Superb drivers - meaning not bloat-ware like some ( and you know who you are !) - coolest feature I've seen in a long time is the way the ink saver operation works - I use it almost always, even for some presentation work. And the android mobile app is dynamite - print, scan to, etc etc my Samsung Galaxy Note when the 6520 is hooked to wired network - HP should take a lesson. Output is very good, not photo, but who would expect - and this machine easily has become my go-to device, even preferring it to my ledger laser. Scanning is instant, and while color reproduction isn't superb, it's OK. Overall, it's the slickest machine I've purchased lately.

Cons: I'm writing this here - you decide if it's a con or actually a pro: My unit jammed 3rd day I had it, while feeding single ledger sheet from rear - opened it up and removed sheet, but when the sheet jammed, it must have damaged something because it never printed after that. I did scan with it after - so kudo's again to Brother for not disabling the entire machine with the paper jam error. Rather than simply return it to Newegg, I decided to try Brother support - which was fantastic and fast. After some email, we talked phone, and when it was clear we couldn't resolve it, they quickly shipped a replacement, and paid return carton for defective.
