Pay Dirt

I purchased the product in a fit of exasperation. I was tired of changing ink cartridges, some of which wouldn't work, on my previous printer. I did a quick search for printer reviews and this product rated pretty well. While I don't recommend doing 'quick review searches' for a printer -- but then I was exasperated. But then, I figured I accidentally hit pay dirt.

When my Brother printer arrived I was pleased as punch to see so much ink, in nice big easily-to-plug canisters. I appreciate the fact that installation and set-up was easy.

After a few months of use I am still pleased. Yeah, when I try to print something, it gurgles and pops for a moment or two, then makes up its mind to do what I wanted it to do. I learned that it is smart to extend the arm where the paper spits out -- otherwise the printed page will fly out, which my dog didn't appreciate. She jumped up and yelped when the page flew out and hit her.

I have no complaints. I am a casual home user and am not frustrated that loading paper is not as simple as with some other printers. And I find it fascinating that periodically someone tries to phone my printer. The first time my printer-phone rang, I searched the house for five minutes trying to figure out what was ringing. I can only presume that the printer was getting called on its fax number although no faxes ever spit out. I am sure that I can disable this feature but it doesn't happen often enough to be an issue.

As I said, I am a casual user. But for my purposes this is the best printer I have ever owned. Its print output, in both color and black and white, is clean and precise. Its speed suits me. And I have yet to change an ink cartridge.

As I said, my quick search resulted in pay dirt for me.

I am sorry that I purchased it. I did so based on reviews. I use it in a small business and am comparing it to other printers that I have owned. The paper has a low capacity. The quality of the color printing is far lower than on printers I used years ago. It goes through a lot of ink. I am hoping it will wear out soon. This might work for someone who uses it a few times a month to write a letter but for daily use, it's about the worst one I've ever had if you are going to use it every day.

Economical and Reliable with great features

By

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

I am amazed at how economically this printer produces page after page without having to constantly change ink cartridges. I don't like to work off of screen shots so I print out a lot using B&W draft mode. I am very happy with the number of pages I get per cartridge. I have had problems with print heads clogging when using several other manufacturers printers but not with this printer. I will soon be buying another J985DW for our shop.

Still will not print

By 

from new york

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

This printer will not print. Brother on-line help could not help, and they dont seem to be a capable group in that field. The thing is connected and it tells me I have the correct driver installed, but it also says the "driver is not available" in the status box. So here I am stuck in a loop that will not let me print.

Clean print and less ink

By 

from Asheville NC

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

The clarity of print is really good. I like the feature of seeing the ink usage on the printer rather than going to the app. Great for small business and home use!

Amazingly Happy with my new Brother-MFC-J985DW SL

By 

from Phoenix, Arizona

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

The printer arrived quickly and set up fast and I was printing in color worry-free in 20 minutes. The most important function I require is the Scan to File, I use it extensively in my real estate business. Now I can print out color reports without always worrying about running out of color ink. After many hours of research, I found this printer to be the best value for the money, that comes with a 2 year supply of ink, that prints exceptionally well, and scans documents with precision. I love it!

This printer was a replacement for an ink hog HP printer that we had. Since we used the Brother at work and never had a problem with it, it was time to get one for the house, and glad we did.

good features and lots of ink included

By 

from San Diego, CA, USA

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

I've had this machine for a few months now an I am happy with it. Nice printing, colors are not as bright as my previous HP. but good enough. I don't do photos. It is a flimsy plastic compared to HP, but I am not rough on equiptment. I only gave 4 stars because it tells me (about 6 times now) that I have a paper jam, and I don't. I have to take it apart, and close it back up and then its fine again.?? It has all the features I need and does it's job, so I am happy. I just hope it lasts!

We have owned this product for only a month or so, However between my wife's job and schooling, ever time i'd look at the ink levels they were low. We have made so many copies already and the ink levels haven't even budged. So far I am very pleased with my inkvesment.

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

This printer offers a good value as far as ink goes , there is some paper feed problems however that we are having. The paper prints on on side then feeds back as though to print the other side. Tpaper feeds back into the printer and the paper feed indicator lights up.

Excellent, no nonsense, high value all in one

By 

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

Our printer is being used at home. It gets used daily by all members of the family. It's only been a few months but already we can see that its reliable, has good output quality for homework projects and other casual at home printing projects. We printer from our phones, tablets and laptops wirelessly with ease. It hasnt let us down yet and sips ink slowly. With these three XL ink cartridges, we expect years of service before buying more ink. We havent tried faxing from it yet but every other feature has been tested without any problems. So far, no regrets. I only wish the touch screen was a little bigger.

Easy set-up. All features are so much better than my old HP. Kudos to Brother!! I haven't encounter any of the issues with the software, scanning as some of the other reviews mention. This all-in-one printer is excellent for my 2 small businesses. I highly recommend this model printer and will definitely buy another one when needed.

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J985DWXL Copy/Fax/Print/Scan, 12 INKvestment Cartridges:

We purchased this printer to replace an older one that wasn't printing very well. The ink was also very expensive. We looked at a number of reviews including consumer's reports and decided to buy this printer. So far it has been working perfectly! Print quality is very good, and the scanner is easy to use.
