New Printer

By PFFlyer

from Delafield, WI

Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax MFCJ285DW:

It prints and copies well. Haven't programmed the fax so the clock is off. I did not locate those instructions. It's very noisy when it prints/copies. Price was right and it was fairly easy to set up.

Great bang for the buck

By Bbobb

from Undisclosed

Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax MFCJ285DW:

Print quality is good, although I haven't printed any photos with it yet. Very easy to set up for wireless printing, from all my machines. Just found the auto two sided printing option, never seen that on a low cost home printer, feature works well.

Best printer tried so far

By WRobinson56

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax MFCJ285DW:

Got the printer shipped for a on-line store, Installed to software which was easier then the other brother printer MFC-J430W that I have. Getting the Wi-Fi to connect and start using the scanner was so easy. This printer is good.

OH Brother!

By wideejay

from Wisconsin

Comments about Brother Multi-Function All-in-One Color Printer with Fax MFCJ285DW:

Printing on the box said it was easy to set up. This was the most difficult setup I have ever experienced. After struggling, I finally got it up and running with the help of Brother support (which was difficult to figure out too). Now that it is running, I am as happy as can be with it! I guess that the wireless setup was the hard part. It is a bit slower to print, but I got used to it. Over all, I would say that I'm glad I got it.
