Summary: I needed a printer capable of disk-printing, to replace an elderly Canon that has been temperamental and problematic (and very slow). My previous experience of Brother printers, inkjet and laser, has been first-rate: solid and reliable printers that do the job and go on doing it indefinitely. This machine does include an A4 scanner with a very small ADF; I thought I did not need the scanner, but as it turns out, it is invaluable in one particular way.
Summary: Printers seem to be the bane of my life. This is my third printer in as many years, replacing an Epson SX425W and Epson PX700W due to poor print quality, expensive ink, ink cartridges failing to be recognised by the printer, ink pad filling up quickly, Epson charging £20 to reset the ink pad counter but not replace the ink pad, and finally leaking ink. However, onto the Brother DCP-J925DW...
Summary: Checked with Amazon on what thickness of paper it would print up to, was passed to brother rep who said it would go up to 200gsm, unfortunately it wouldn't do it for me although I tried it all the ways suggested and more.
Summary: TL/DR: Forget about Epson, Lexmark, HP, Canon and Kodak and buy this one. Review: After suffering the pain of owning Epson, HP and Lexmark in the past, I decided to pull the trigger and buy this printer. Due to my past experiences with printers I didn't know what to expect. The main reasons why I choose this printer over Canon and Kodak (the other brands I was looking at) are: 1.
Summary: Bought this printer 2 months ago and on the whole it is ok. The worst thing about it is the paper tray that you have to pull out each time you want to change paper. It is very flimsy and clanky. The printer got paper jammed in it last week and although managed to remove it eventually , the printer head started banging from side to side. On contacting Amazon they sent me a new one the next day and a courier will collect the faulty one - really great service from Amazon!
