Summary: The MFC-685CW is a burger with the lot, with wireless connectivity thrown in for good measure. Its print quality for documents is adequate, and its scanning capability is good, but it's not a good choice for photo prints.
Pros: Built-in 802.11g wireless networking, it can print while it scans, built-in memory card reader and direct USB port
Cons: Photo prints look too washed out; scans can't be sent to a memory card, nor to another PC on the network
Summary: The Brother MFC-685CW inkjet multifunction printer offers tons of great features at the expense of print speed and quality. If speed and quality are your priorities, look elsewhere.
Pros: Compact design, PictBridge port and memory card reader, PictBridge port supports USB flash drives, 3.3-inch widescreen LCD, Onboard handset and answering machine, Secure mode lets you receive faxes in password-protected memory
Cons: Average to slow task speeds, Print quality needs a lot of improvement, Refilling paper cassette and engaging photo tray require you to fully detach the cassette
