I've had this printer for a month and have used it to copy, print and scan. I haven't had any problems, which is most important to me. I'm not super tech-savvy, so I don't want a printer with lots of issues. When I've had to look up "how-to's" in the manual, it was simple to understand. One thing I appreciate a lot is how easy it is to scan. Getting our old HP to scan was painful if not impossible. I scanned using the menu on this brother printer screen and it couldn't be simpler.

I have mixed feelings about my MFC J885 printer. I bought it for use in my home office. It does some things well, and several things not so well. It does print my documents in color. I have to use this printer over a VPN which makes the print jobs very slow. That is not the fault of the printer. As far as a printer, it does very well â€" I love automatic two-sided printing, I love color. I also have to use the scanner. I am extremely well pleased with the scanner. The software took just a little bit of getting used to, but now I do things very well. The one thing I don't like the most about this printer is that it will not print from an iPhone or an iPad. When I originally set it up it would, but within the same day it quit. I have tried all sorts of things including re-installing the printer, but it doesn't seem to do any good. For that very reason, I would replace this printer. My other big complaint is about two sided printing, one page at a time. The manual sheet feeder and I have a to-do about once every workday. I don't know whether it's my technique or what but the Brother just doesn't like the way I put in the paper to print that second side. And, just to make it an even number, my third complaint is that this printer prints terrible color photos. You don't even need to try. I debated on two stars or three. As a printer, it deserves at three. But to be useful, I needed to work with Apple products and I need a more reliable manual sheet feeder. This is my third Brother printer. One is a laser printer, which cannot always be seen on the network. One is in MFC J825 which does everything I would like for it to do but, it resides in another state! And finally there's this printer. If I knew then what I know now, I would not have bought it.

Lack of communication.

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

The setup was confusing. I never did get my mobiles set up to print. Setup is not user friendly. I would like to get a confirmation that the fax was received.

Unreliable and extremely slow

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

This printer is not reliable, and it is extremely slow. Duplexing is a 'joke', and the only way I can manage to scan is via a cable.

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

I bought this a few months ago and have been amazed at the number and quality of the features--scanning, copying from books, faxing, etc. Printing photos off my Android phone is amazing.My one gripe is that printing is much slower than I had expected. I am a lecturer who tends to leave things for the very last minute, and this printer will not be rushed, especially when it is printing multiple 2-sided copies in color. Leave yourself plenty of time in advance to make your copies.

No Headaches

By 

from Indiana, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

This is my first Brother printer. It's replacing an HP8600 All in one that we've had for years. We've owned the brother for three months now and it's been hassle, and headache free. It doesn't feel as solidly built as some other printers, but it sits on a desk, and it prints when it's told to, the software is simple and easy to understand and it's headache free. The printer ink doesn't cost a fortune either. The only issue I have had is that I haven't found any ink replacement in Walmart. Other than that, it does what it's supposed to do, and it doesn't argue, or cause headaches when you tell it to print/scan/fax.

Brother Ink Jet Printer Review MFC-J885DW

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

Sorry to say, after a brief period of use, this printer experiences continuous paper jams. I've gotten very good at pulling the tray and the two internal blue tabs, opening the top and pulling the paper through. However after two months of dealing with this, it has gotten to the point I'm lucky if it only takes three pages to get one printed. Fortunately, I have a warranty, so I will either get the printer repaired, or my money back. Unfortunately, who wants to be without a printer while all this happens? I have another printer now, and it is not this model. One note to Brother, their FAQs and troubleshooting should explain troubleshooting procedures, NOT only explain how to clear a jam. That would have helped a lot.

Has good & not-so-good features

By 

from Aptos, Santa Cruz, CA, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

I bought it brand new & from the very beginning the dialogue box is hard to read: the screen is very dark and the lettering is very small & wording has poor resolution. The scanner doesn't always work. Two sided printing option always results in paper jams & I therefore don't use this feature. The print quality is very good. The paper tray is easy to load & unload. This is my 3rd Brother printer and this model isn't as good as previous models.

Great Features

By 

from Saint Clairsville, OH, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

We like all the features but especially like the single sheet paper feed on the back. This is very handy for using card stock for printing greeting cards. This was the main reason we bought this printer. My only complaint is we have difficulty getting it to print card stock two-sided. We have to turn the paper over manually to print cards. If it wasn't for that I would rate it excellent.

Good

By 

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

Works well but I would recommend 3 improvements. First - pages that scan thru the document feeder tend to go in crooked so I would improve the tray to correct that. Second I would love to see the ability to automatically collate scanned pages and third, I would love to see the ability for incoming faxes to be saved to a (Mac) computer without having to print the pages and then scan and save them. It's a waste of time, ink, paper etc - especially when getting a document that has multiple pages that are not needed.

Printer Ink

By 

from Reno, Nevada, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

The printer provides good quality printing - however, it uses ink far too quickly compared to my previous HP, making printing much more expensive. I'm disappointed in this aspect which was not revealed by the salesman. I'm hoping the reliability will overcome this shortcoming.

I'll keep replacing them till my warranty runs out. I should be given a new warranty with each replacement. First printer wouldn't let go of the empty print cartridges, the second refurbished printer gives me an E9 error code. Fingers crossed for machine number 3.

Outstanding features

By

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J885DW Color Wireless Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

The OCR that goes into Excel and Text format is a standard feature and works quite well. Replacement inks are always expensive, but voiding the warranty is you do use 3rd party refills is ridiculous. Had a warranty claim due to scanner issue that was resolved quickly.
