Conclusion: Brother doesn’t target any of its printers or MFPs for the home or consumer market – the MFC-J870DW we tested is marketed as a device for small businesses. But the same features and functionality that make the MFC-J870DW attractive to a small business – good quality output, fast printing, and economical operation – will also appeal to home users. In fact, because of its relatively small-capacity paper tray, the MFC-J870DW may be more suitable in a home than in an office.
Pros: Attractive price, Compact, Good output quality, Reasonable ink cost
Cons: No automatic duplexing on ADF, Under-saturated photos on plain paper, Small-capacity paper tray, Slow copying
Excerpt: Just another home and small office multifunction colour inject printer from Brother you might think. Yet as well as having an impressive array of features at a reasonable price, the Brother MFC-J870DW has established a unique milestone in this class.
