I've had Brother printers before, my last printer did work, however, I wanted a dual tray, which I LOVE. No more having to switch paper. The paper I use most is in tray 1 and when I need to switch to tray 2, just go in to preferences, which pops up anyway, and change to Tray 2, the printer reverts back to tray 1 because that's the default. It has clear crisp letters and I've done quite a bit of printing and the only color I've had to change is the blue and these are the cartridges that came with the machine. Just a little hint, I learned this from the old Brother, when it shows you that you are low on ink, continue to use it till the printer stops, it doesn't hurt anything, I've even been in the middle of printing from the computer, I thought for sure I'd messed up, I replaced the blue and the printer started right up again. Another reason I choose the MFC-J5720DW over the other Brother dual tray was the size, this one fits where the MFC-J870DW was. I can't say enough about this printer, I Love It. Also, I've never written a review about anything.

We use this printer in our small legal office. First, the feeder will not feed our documents head-first because of the holes at the top of the pages. We have resorted to scanning or copying pages bottom-first as a result. Next, the feeder takes multiple pages at a time. No, not all the time, but enough that we have to monitor the copier and review each copied document to check for all pages. Another difficulty that we experience with the product is that it's slow to "wake up." I can have several documents pending printing on my laptop and wait nearly 30 minutes for them to print. We specifically made this purchase because of the savings on ink cartridges (vs competitors) and because our previous Brother printer was so effective. While it gets the job done, it's a little disappointing that it's not as feckful.

The Brother MFC-J5720DW

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

The Brother MFC-J5720 DW is the best printer we have ever owned. It is dependable, fast for a non-industrial printer, and the toner cartridges are relatively inexpensive. You can choose whether to print in color or black and white. Best of all, their customer service allows you to speak to a real, live person! They are very knowledgeable and helpful.

poor color quality, not user friendly

By 

from Utah, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

This might be OK for an office but for my home use it was most annoying. If the internet went out for a spell, the computer had to be restarted to get the printer to work again. It does do nice two sided document feed scanning. It is slow but then it is an all in one so it is a good feature and acceptable. The biggest issue is the muted color quality. Colors are so dull and faded looking. Just not acceptable. It is now sitting in a box in the basement. As I use my printer for greeting cards and photos that is my priority. The Brother was OK for text printing. I would not think it would be very appealing to have such faded pictures for business brochures or grafts or charts with color. I had original brother ink in the printer. The originals did not last very long. The colors were the same muted look after I put in new Brother ink cartridges. It is also fickle about what papers it will accept. Absolutely have to go through the computer to tell it what type of photo paper you are using or it will not feed. It would take 65 lb card stock but not the Avery Greeting card paper which feels no heavier. You cannot just put paper in there and get it to accept it. It would not feed any photo paper through unless I used the computer to tell it to print and i could not get it to print to the right tray just using the keypad on front of machine. I had to use the computer to tell it which tray to use. This is machine is huge and more complicated to use than the previous printers I have had. So this may be fine for an office but for home use I would not recommend it at all. I picked it for the two sided scanning. When I was done scanning I put it away.

New Brother MFC

By 

from Bluefield, VA, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

We really like this new multi-function printer---It is fast and easy to set up---The scan/print speed is very good---The cost of ink cartridges is lower than our previous printer cartridges---Our only complaint is that the color printing does not appear to be as high of quality as our old HP.

Good all in one printer!

By 

from Mackinaw City, MI, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

Replaced an HP Officejet with this printer. The footprint is quite a bit smaller on this printer which is something I needed. Prints documents quickly and WiFi works very well on my home network. Also prints perfectly from my smart phone with the Brother app. I really like the rear door special document feeder setup. So easy to print specialty documents and envelopes without disturbing the letter and legal trays. The only issue I've had with it so far is when it is finding the edge of envelopes inserted into the rear envelope feeder sometimes it loses the envelope. By this I mean when it takes the envelope from you after insertion it backs up too far trying finding the edge (I'm assuming) and loses the envelope out of the feed rollers. New printer so maybe I'm just not getting the envelope straight enough between the movable guides.

Not overly impressed

By 

from Holland, MI, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

The printer continues to stop in the middle of printing PDF documents that are two sided Claiming it is jammed and the only way to re-set it so unplug. Also have a hard time with any paper other than regular copier paper in the try and it jamming in the printer. now I have black lines on the edges of my specialty paper I put through the rear by-pass.

Easy to use

By 

from Tucson, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

When I received this printer it was the first Brother print I had ever used or seen. I was pleased with the easy setup. Wireless printing works very well. The first page is slow in printing but after that the remaining pages come fast.

Weak Color Output

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus Series Black All-In-One Printer Inkjet Printer:

Printer easy to set up and connect to WiFi. When I printed color images the color was weak and faded. Bought new cartridges and it had not much impact on the color. Not sure I would recommend this for color. Black & white are fine.
