Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax MFCJ285DW:
This printer was extremely easy to set up and use. The display tilts out so it's readable when standing next to it. The display also has convenient shortcuts to ink levels and settings. The ink seems to last a long time. This is my everyday printer, and it works well for that. The quality is acceptable, although would not take the place of my photo quality printer for pictures, unless on the highest quality setting. Overall, a perfect office printer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My First Duplex Printer
from Raleigh, NC, United States
The first unit I received did not work properly in duplex mode. I returned it for another machine and so far everything works fine. I am looking forward to not having to replace the ink cartridges very often and paying less for them.

I have been extremely pleased with your product. I require a lot of scanning and printing and this all-in-one has thus far proven to had been a good buy. A friend of my who is an IT recommended your brand after a couple of mishaps with HP.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.
Very nice product

I previous had a Canon Pixma all in one. I replaced it with the Brother MFC-J985DW. The Brother is easier to use and very user friendly. The print quality is good and the scans are excellent
Easy to setup and use!
This printer was definitely one of the easiest to setup, including connecting to our WiFi network. The screen is easy to navigate and understand, with shortcuts for ink levels and settings on the home screen (convenient). The print quality is acceptable, although not as good as a photo quality printer. Great for everyday office use.
not too bad
although the set-up and out put is pretty impressive, the yellow (cyan) output is a little weak. occasionally the machine will indicate there are no ink cartridges mounted, even though they are. so i have to go through re-seating them.
