I had Cannon, HP, Lexmark, but Brother is the best for me!
7 September 2014
Summary: I just love this printer! I owned a Brother MFC5490 before lightning zapped it and it was very reliable. The MFCJ870 seems to fall in the same category of reliability and quality printing with low cost, nuff said.
Summary: Great all-in-one printer! I bought this simply because if its features and compactness. Wifi setup is simple and easy. I can print wirelessly from my MacBook without install a driver by simply add a printer from my MacBook and it automatically detect the printer from network then set it as default printer. Quick power on response time. I might not use all the features but its great to have it all for less. Cons: Weird noise once in a while even though I turned it off.
Excerpt: I like all the features. wifi connectivity with mobile devices is a bit sketchy but in my case my router was probably the issue. Still I can print out from my mobile devices thru iPrint&scan software. the software is pretty basic but once you learn how to use de clipboard its a nice feature. As far as pc-printer connectivity via wifi goes the printter performs excellent!
Pros: Doesn't Jam, Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance
Summary: I was looking for a printer for printing directly on CD's and DVD's for photographs I take, and this seems to work fine for that. I've not really tried it for printing documents, but I am quite pleased with printing on CD/DVD printable media
Summary: I've been using a higher end HP inkjet all in one for home since 2008. It does all our printing with kiddos in school. Aside from driver issues on Mac, it has been a workhorse. With that as my background, I was a bit skeptical to purchase this little hundred dollar all in one for my daughter who is in college, in spite of it being the editors choice of a large review site. I was needlessly worried. The print quality is not quite up to the hp level, but it's pretty close.
Excerpt: I have always been an HP fan but the last one I bought was a real dud. I returned it after a month and bought the Brother J870 printer. Installation was a breeze!! and in prints perfectly!! Not one issue so far and I am thrilled!! I would recommend it!!! Great printer....great price!!!
Pros: Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Easy to Set Up, Performance
