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.

Nice & compact, great print but complicated to use

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

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

I bought this because I'm sick of monster machines that take up all my space and skarf ink (at my expense). This one is compact and says it sips ink and comes with an actual full XL cartridge out of the box. I also needed the fax but it was hard to set up. All the font is too small to see, especially model number. Printed instructions are incomplete. You have to go online to download the complete set. Even that is not specific to the model which is very annoying because instructions are too complex. I don't like the paper tray. It is small and hard to fill. The paper tends to spill out as it works or roll up in the out tray. I'm still not sure I like it because I've already experienced a paper jam.

Definite Upgrade from Previous Machine

By 

from Catalina Foothills, AZ, United States

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

We previously used an HP OfficeJet for our personal and home office needs until it began to show its age. After some research, we decided to go with the Brother MFC-J985DW. It is a definite upgrade! Both the copying and scan functions are substantially faster and the fax actually works. The "manual" setting allows us to share the fax (which we rarely use) with our voice mail line. The interface is clean and intuitive. We can't comment on the life of ink cartridges because we haven't had to change one yet! Highly recommended for personal and small office use.

Constantly looses WiFi connection

By 

from USA

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

I have to use the Wi-Fi Wizard everyday to reconnect the printer to wireless network. When printer goes into hibernation, I assume it looses the Wi-Fi connection. You can only select 60 minutes as the max amount of time before it goes into hibernate mode. It should have the option of never going into hibernate mode if this causes if to loose Wi-Fi connection.

Very light print density on font characters and printed images. Also clarity of printed images was fuzzy and not crisp and clear.

So this is a pretty nice little printer

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

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

I've had the J985DW for about 2 weeks. It replaced an HP MF unit that had died after a pretty long life. I have to admit I'm very happy with the printer. What do I like: compact size for my small office. A perfect fit. It prints, scans, copies, and faxes. All the things I was looking for in a printer. The quality and speed of all those functions (well, I've not tried the fax function yet) are very good to excellent. Supply costs are outstandingly low Where do I have issues: Not many places. Find the paper loading to be a bit awkward, but once you get the idea, it's OK. Printer is WiFi and it does not see my G network. I've not done any research yet, so this might be "user error" but so far, not love. Summary, this is an outstanding MF unit. Provides good, speedy printing at low consumables cost. For my home office it is just about perfect. A couple of issues, sure, but I'm very happy with my choice

Prints ok, but has challenges

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO, United States

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

Prints generally good quality, but constantly gets offline status and doesn't wake up. Have to "troubleshoot" to get back to online status. I've used scan software from another brand that is more user-friendly.
