Brother MFC-J5330DW

 

Brother MFC-J5330DW review: A well-featured all-in-one with the bonus of A3 print. Fast and versatile – although print quality is only average.

Fast print speeds ; Useful twin paper sources ; Decent running costs

Bulky ; Single-sided scanner only ; Average print quality

The MFC-J5330DW is a solid all-in one. Print quality is fair, however, rather than spectacular – and although this is a decent multi-function device overall, the competition is strong.

Brother MFC-J5330DW review

 

An MFP which takes a little inspiration from the TARDIS

Neat internal cable management ; A4-sized MFP capable of printing A3 ; Reliable and sharp black pigment printing ; Companion app tells you how much ink is left

Some photos take ages to print ; Couldn’t update firmware via Wi-Fi ; Longwinded setup procedure ; A3 capability adds bulk and cost

This four-in-one MFP boasts a deep 150-page A4 paper tray, a rapid 35 ppm churn rate and duplex printing, with impressive output quality within a reasonable budget. Add the ability to print A3 paper and you have a potentially indispensable office printer.

Brother MFC-J5330DW review

 

Strong performance, competitive running costs, and versatile A3 printing option, will appeal to many small office workers. Here's our Brother MFC-J5330DW review

It’s not the most elegant printer we’ve ever come across, but its strong performance, low running costs, and that handy option for A3 printing combine to make the MFC-J5330DW a good workhorse printer that will really earn its keep in any small office.

  (Rating Hidden)

Want to print up to A3 in size? Well, the Brother MFC-J5330DW could be the printer for you. This feature and function-rich inkjet doesn't exactly shine with its scanner or copier, but can its print quality save the day? And is this inkjet printer...

Brother MFC-J5330DW

 

The business-oriented Brother MFC-J5330DW is a capable wide-format, low-volume color inkjet all-in-one printer. It's relatively fast, and it prints fairly well overall, albeit with some flawed business graphics.

Competitively fast. Good overall print quality. Prints tabloid-size pages. Multiple connectivity options. Strong software bundle.

Less-than-stellar graphics. Cost per page could be lower. Non-duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF).

Bottom Line: The business-oriented Brother MFC-J5330DW is a capable wide-format, low-volume color inkjet all-in-one printer. It's relatively fast, and it prints fairly well overall, albeit with some flawed business graphics.

Easy to set up, works well on network. Fast and good quality printing.

It is quite large, but I knew that before purchase.
