Conclusion: The Brother MFC-825dw blows the out of the water in print quality, print reliability and price while continuing to offer plenty of features such as a touchscreen, front side USB port, automatic duplexing, web connected applications and built-in wireless.
Pros: Print quality, Variety of features, Ease of use
Cons: Inflated print speeds, Average paper capacity
Excerpt: The MFC-J825DW is one of the most fully-featured inkjet MFPs in Brother's range. It can print, scan, copy and fax, connect to wired or wireless networks, and print photos directly from a memory card. Duplex (double-sided) printing is standard too, as is a large and responsive touchscreen that helps to simplify direct operations such as copying or photo printing.
Excerpt: It’s outclassed as a photo printer but Brother’s MFC-J825DW doesn’t even offer much in the way of advanced office features to help it stand out from the bunch (includes Canon PIXMA MX926 , HP Photosmart 7520 and Epson Expression Premium XP-700 ).

Summary: The Brother MFC-J825DW has a bevy of features for its reasonable asking price -- fax, memory card and USB printing, dual paper inputs including an automatic document feeder, a 3.3in touchscreen -- and is only let down by its lower-than-expected paper capacity of 100 sheets. Its print quality is acceptable for quickly-produced text documents, but photo prints look impressively detailed given the MFC-J825DW's office credentials.
