Brother MFC-J6930DW review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Brother MFC-J6930DW is a fully-featured, office workhorse that can print up to A3 in size. It prints out photos in good quality, albeit at a sluggish speed. But what's it like overall for print quality? And are the printing costs affordable? Based...

Brother MFC-J6930DW

 

This business-centric color inkjet all-in-one printer is relatively fast, with good print quality, competitively low running costs, and flexible paper handling.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes tabloid-size pages. Competitively fast. Low running costs. Single-pass auto-duplexing ADF. Three paper input sources. Good print quality overall.

Subpar graphics.

In addition, while both the Epson WF-7620 and WF-7610 are capable AIOs, since they've been out for so long, their running costs are excessive—Epson needs to update its wide-format WorkForce models. On the other hand, the MFC-J6930DW is more than...

Does what it says it does!

 

This all-in one is just what we need for our office. It is a little bulky compared to my HP inkjet but its fast. It can do 2-sided copies, printing on 8.5X11 and 8.5X14. I haven't tried the 11X17 features yet or the fax but the scanning is just as good...

It is doing the job

 

We purchased this printer so that we could print 11x17 newsletters for Lions Club and Mended Hearts. My wife and I are volunteers and pay for all materials as a donations. This printer is better than before.

Good product with some exceptions

 

Printing is fast and high quality and large format capability is really useful. But I discovered a weakness when printing labels. Specifically, Avery Business Cards. Feeding from Tray 1/2 results in 60% paper jams, and the MP tray jams every time. The...

Can't find ink

 

Can't find ink in local stores, and I can't view he scan as it is scanning like I could with HP 8500 that I replaced.

Great Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copierr

 

This printer was easy to install and works great. We tried it wireless and cabled, worked the same both ways.

Out The Box Good

 

I needed a printer to replace my previous large format business printer to print 11 X 17 inch catalogs. This printer does that and so much more. I'm able to load 11' X 17" paper in tray 2, 8.5" X 11" paper in tray 1, and fast load envelopes in the...

Great Features

 

Like the 11x17 print ability! Prints very clear. Like the fact that it is wireless.
