Only keep it now in case I need to fax

John S., Newegg
4 March 2015
  • Summary: Like most inkjet printers I have bought, this one only included nearly empty cartridges so you will have to replace them all right away.
  • Pros: Price was good for the features this printer has. Until the black quit working print quality was decent if you set the print quality to fine.
  • Cons: If you only occasionally need a printer do not buy an inkjet. It doesn't take long to pay way more for cartridges than the machine originally cost. This one has an automatic cleaning process that uses up the ink pretty fast even if you do not use it very often. That process didn't keep the black ...

bad design

Thomas D., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Brother makes some great printers. This is not one of them.
  • Pros: It seemed like a nice all in one for the price.
  • Cons: Clogged black print head after 10 weeks of light use (less than 250 pages total printed). Have only used Brother brand ink cartridges. Read in some forum that if you let an ink cartridge go completely empty in this model, it damages the print head. If that turns out to be true, I cannot stress st...

Brother MFC-J220

Laura M., Newegg
19 February 2014
  • Summary: Plan to buy another printer locally so I can see how it works, and I will pay more for something else. I want quality.
  • Pros: Cheap ink.
  • Cons: The paper jams constantly, and it just won't print. The paper drawer is made of very thin plastic that feels like it might break if not handled like an egg. I have to print my stuff at work.

Never got item because BEACH AUDIO is a SCAM

Sean M., Newegg
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I will obviously never buy from BEACH AUDIO again. Too bad I couldn't have used newegg support on this purchase.
  • Pros: Specs look great too bad I never got my printer. See below why BEACH AUDIO is the worst company I have ever done business with
  • Cons: BEACH AUDIO sent me paper towels instead of a printer. After an hour or more on the phone, they made me pay to send them back to the warehouse. They never updated me on the status of the transaction. Only after I had sent them back, did they tell me that they were out of stock of the printer and ...

User Review

John S., Newegg
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Always research the ink prices before buying a printer. A printer is not a bargain if the ink costs more than it does.
  • Pros: The 4 cartridge ink setup. I just needed a very basic printer and there were some cheaper but the prices of the ink cartridges were ridiculous. This thing has a lot of features I may never need since I already have a larger scanner but who knows, I may need them sometime. I could have used a Fax ...

Phased obsolescence in vogue at Brother

Eric P., Newegg
22 May 2013
  • Summary: The black ink head on my printer is permanently clogged, despite regular cleaning cycles which used a good deal of ink. I've had this MFC for about 1.5 years, and will now either toss it in the trash or use it as a huge, unwieldy scanner only because it is out of warranty and repairing the print...
  • Pros: Fine scanner
  • Cons: Ugly, clunky software Uses large quantity of ink for cleaning Broke quickly

Works.

Jeremy P., Newegg
29 April 2013
  • Summary: Bought this mainly for wedding invitations and a couple document scans. It has done very well with these tasks. I'm sure for more money I could have gotten them done quicker, but I am completely satisfied for what I paid.
  • Pros: Good quality on normal, great quality on high. Does everything I need reasonably quickly. Easy setup
  • Cons: Uses a fair amount of ink, scan times can be high when using HQ. No wifi, but I knew that.

Super Happy

Jason M., Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I think Brother Printer are the best printers for home use... This is my 3rd Brother printer ...The 1st never died it simply got to be useless due to technology improvements...The 2nd Brother Printer I had dies after 4 years of heavy heavy use..
  • Pros: It's a Brother. Prints fantastic, great color, Good black and white. Small for a MFC but large for a Home Printer. Quality...It's built with the Idea that you are buying a printer and not INK... Prints fast.. Not all that loud... Good looking..
  • Cons: Doesn't print the Best Photo's Software for print projects is online.
