I've only been using the printer for about 2 weeks, which means there's a lot of features I have yet to explore. Here's what I can say so far. 1) Packaging of the item seemed solid. 2) How many times have we complained that setup or installation instructions were hard to understand? Not with this product. You can tell Brother takes great care in communicating with the customer & it's reflected in the setup instructions. Very easy to understand. 3) My laptop doesn't have a built-in CD drive, so I chose to download the installation package from Brother's website, which is probably the best thing to do anyway, considering you don't know how long the product has been on the shelf before you finally purchase the product & in between those times, updates to the software may have occurred. Downloading assures you of the most up-to-date software. 4. I was blown away at the speed of printing on this unit. It spit out my first printed job so fast - I thought something went wrong. But I looked at the paper & it was all there. The image looked clear & sharp as well. I use this for business & most of what I'm going to be printing is text - letters, labels, etc. 5. The paper tray seems a little light & not as sturdy as I would have expected, so I hope that over time as I pull the tray out & push it back in to change the paper, it will hold up. 6. I receive one or two emails a week from Brother (I chose this option when registering the product) to inform me of news & latest updates, etc. 7. When you logon to your computer each day, you'll see a small call-out box just above the status bar - far right. It says, "Brother Help," which is a nice feature, should you need a quick answer on something. You can "X" out the box & make it disappear if you don't want it to stay visible throughout the day. So far, I'm very impressed with the printer. I still can't believe how fast this prints - it's lightning fast.

I've only had it a couple of weeks. Functionally it is very solid and runs well so far... but, there are a few things that I should warn others about. To hook it up via wire, both the network port and USB port are located in the center of the middle of the unit - you need to lift the entire scanner portion up to plug it in, then run the cables along a guide inside the machine leading out the back - very odd design. Every other printer I have used across the decades has ports on the outside. The quality of the print is pretty mediocre and the finished print is not very dark at all. Perhaps this is how the 'inkvestment' tech works to save you ink? Still, I've had cheap throwaway printers with better print quality to be honest. The printer tray has to be completely pulled out of the machine entirely and put on your desk in order to load paper, which is also odd in my opinion. I have not tried the fax portion but scanning is a breeze with one exception: in the scanner software (Control Center 4,) it uses a 'retry' or 'reload' icon to represent cropping instead of the typical frame corner icon you would expect, which is also on the help documentation. Once I figured out this error it runs great.

My First Duplex Printer

By 

from Raleigh, NC, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

The first unit I received did not work properly in duplex mode. I returned it for another machine and so far everything works fine. I am looking forward to not having to replace the ink cartridges very often and paying less for them.

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

I previous had a Canon Pixma all in one. I replaced it with the Brother MFC-J985DW. The Brother is easier to use and very user friendly. The print quality is good and the scans are excellent

Easy to setup and use!

By 

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

This printer was definitely one of the easiest to setup, including connecting to our WiFi network. The screen is easy to navigate and understand, with shortcuts for ink levels and settings on the home screen (convenient). The print quality is acceptable, although not as good as a photo quality printer. Great for everyday office use.

not too bad

By 

from florida

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

although the set-up and out put is pretty impressive, the yellow (cyan) output is a little weak. occasionally the machine will indicate there are no ink cartridges mounted, even though they are. so i have to go through re-seating them.

By and large satisfied

By 

from Mountain View, CA, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart All-In-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer:

The good: Feature set matched my needs. Easy to operate, ergonomically well thought out. Black and white quality is good and printing reasonably fast. Two-sided printing works well. The middling: Would like a fast or draft quality option for quick review and stuff where high quality is not an issue. The bad: WiFi would not stay connected to the modem/router supplied by Comcast. Fortunately I also have an old Apple Time Capsule with a WiFi router and that combination has worked flawlessly for a couple months now. The Comcast is certainly more sophisticated (guessing beaming antennas, 2.4/5.0GHz autoswitching, etc), so it may be that these features are confusing the printer's networking. Color prints are washed out compared to my old HP. It didn't bother me much when I read others complain about the color quality because we don't print much color and typically I am not very picky about this, but even Neandertbal me finds it lacking.
