I am happy with this machine. I searched for weeks online for the best combination of low cost of operation and reliability. I believe I found it. I do most of my printing in draft mode, black only (with only infrequent use of color). This runs CHEAP! Even draft mode is pretty sharp (and "best" mode looks like the best HP laser). The only downsides I've noticed so far: 1) the paper pickup sometimes sends through blank sheets (partly due to going so fast in draft mode); 2) The order of pages can get screwed up in the holding bin (solved by readjusting the holding tray); 3) I've had odd results with spot use of color (yet to be solved; I'm sure I can fix this with a little more tweaking). 4) Scanning: does a fine job (just must deactivate my Norton Internet Security firewall to allow the machine to feed through the to the PC; a mere annoyance). For a low-priced inkjet MFC, this is a heavy duty unit & an amazing machine.

Duplex printing but not copying fro ADF

It seems that buried in the specifications it is listed that this machine doesn't do duplex copying but will do duplex printing. I purchased my machine in a physical store. I read the features on the box and talked to the sales person who assured me that it was capable of duplex copying. I read the Basic User's Guide which simply refers you to online instructions for 2-sided copies. So you make the assumption, erroneously, that you can make 2-sided copies. Since my old printer (not a Brother machine) could do both, I didn't think that they would make a machine that could do duplex printing but not duplex copying from the ADF. Who needs a printer that can't duplex copy in the ADF? The salesperson was so busy pushing the cost saving features of the ink, that they failed to mention this small but important missing feature. Also, the mobile printing instructions are complicated and the machine doesn't give me connectivity through Google Cloud print across all my devices. Otherwise, it does do single copies through the ADF and it does print from my computer duplex copies. I have to take some responsibility for failing to do my homework before purchasing and waiting too long to return the item. With this company never purchase in a store without reading the specifications on line..."Buyer Beware!"

So much better than HP!

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

Have been a loyal HP Printer user for years. Got tired of always needing more ink as it seemed the ink low message occurred soon after new ink was installed. Tried this Brother MFC-J5830DW Printer - WOW! Absolutely no complaints and the ink seems to last so much longer than with the HP.

Easy to use, not finicky, good features, sturdy

By 

from Washington, DC, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

This is a great printer for a very small office or a consultant who does a lot of documentation. It has a good manual feed tray that holds multiple sheets for 11x17 paper, envelopes, and labels. I originally got a lower model of Brother printer, but exchanged for this one for the paper capacity, ease of loading paper, etc. Has actual buttons for the fax.

My Brother

Good value, but missing a key feature.

By 

from Scottsdale, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

Although the printer has multiple paper trays, you cannot set it up to automatically print on a letterhead paper from one tray, and the rest of a letter on plain paper from another tray. Therefore there is no way to batch print a series of letters. You need to manually remove the paper tray and insert the letterhead paper for each letter, one at a time.

Quality features

By 

from Saint Paul, MN, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

Although everything else seems to be fine but somehow scanning appear to be some issues. No matter how few (1-5 pages) scanning through feeder, "problem" indication appears and then scanning failed. Scanning failure is a repetive problematic with this machine. It's not sure whether the software or the system is the issue here but it is a headache. If in fact, it is a software issue, perhaps, it maybe fixed through the update systematically. If it cannot be updated and fixed systematically, please advised otherwise.

This product has exceeded my expectations. The set up was simple and easy to follow. Ink usage has been as promised. It is very fast and has a great print quality. I love the large paper capacity. Beats most printers at this price point. I highly recommend this machine. A great value.

Good Printer

By

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

This is a good printer! I like everything about it. I do notice that it does not eat up ink like other printers seem to do. It is quiet and the colors are excellent! My first Brother printer and may just be an ongoing thing! 5 Stars for sure!

Slow to start printing

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

I guess I should have read the reviews before buying this printer. I have always been satisfied with Brother printers, but this machine isn't very good. It takes a long time to print the first page and I'm not able to easily change from one tray to another. I have tried several suggested fixes and still haven't resolved the speed issue.

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

I Regret that I bought this product. It prints very slow.......It irritates me to no end to stand there and wait. The print quality does not measure up to my standards. I wish I could get my money back. It won't work with an old wire less computer. Terrible Don't waste your money

I am a new fan of Brother for my printer choice

By 

from Central Illinois

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

I did research for the features I needed, and paid more for a printer/copier/fax or 'all-in-one' than I usually do. In the past, I have bought some special or deal with lowest upfront cost. I have owned HP and Lexmark and they both drove me nuts in the end. The Brother appeared to be lowest total cost of ownership (always having to look at the ink source/supply too). I chose MFC-J5830DW for its feature set and it is working very well for me. The tools and utilities are easy to use and very well laid out. I have a newfound use by scanning packets of documents to electronic pdfs and cleaning up clutter too. Overall, I think Brother will be my choice of printer company from here on.

disappointed

By 

from Pueblo, CO, United States

Comments about Brother Business Smart Plus MFC-J5830DW Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer Series:

When trying to print a business card… 1. The printer did not have a select for thick paper just photo paper. 2. The business card paper got jammed and the second one came out smeared. Then the third one was printed so faint that you could not read it. The printer does not do double sided scan (which is not mention on the box) You must manually place on the scanner. The sign above the printer in the store said do not buy ink for 2 years, made for small business, Ha… I have used over half of the ink and I bought in Dec 5 2016 and my business is very small. Hence… disappoint in the printer. I should mention one good thing… it is easy to set up
