Good Choice for Small Office
April 2, 2014
By VegasBold from Las Vegas, NV
We print primarily 11x17 b/w for reviewing purposes & this Brother has been good for us - so far.

For the last 3 months, we have been using a refurbished machine, sent directly to us from the manufacturer after our previous one went kaput within 4 months! Perhaps it was a fluke. I hope so.

Unlike the HP I bought 2 yrs ago, the Brother seems to work well with our macs. I've been happy about that. One of my friends, who is also an architect, has an older version of the MFC-J6710DW, which is why I bought it.

This machine produces color & b/w, double-sided prints. It prints & scans any size up to 11x17, which works for us 99% of the time. If we need something larger, we send it to the local print shop.

Color is good for small, check-sets, but not for client presentations. We've run 70% recycled content paper, card stock, envelopes, and glossy paper thru the machine & it's done a good job with all of it. The lines are still crisp & continuous weights after 3 months of use.

What I don't like: machine interface and paper cartridges.

The interface is clumsy. It's got a flip-up screen & you can scroll thru the menus, but sometimes trying to remember how to run a test print is time-consuming. I think a touch-screen would also be more useful.

We use 8.5x11 in the top cartridge and 11x17 in the bottom. The way that the drawer cartridges slide in & out of the machine are rough and noisy. The paper adjustments inside the drawers are flimsy, and they don't move/adjust smoothly. There's a "catch" & we have to use some force to engage the adjustment levers. Sometimes I think I'll break one of the controllers if I'm not careful.

I think the fax option is outdated. We receive faxes thru our online fax service as emails. We receive the fax & download them to our server. No paper unless we need it.

All in all, the Brother has worked well for us. We don't use the interface very often, and we add paper about once a month. If you don't need fabulous color prints, this is a good machine for a small office because it can print several sizes up to 11x17 & scan similarly. The speed of the prints is pretty good too - unless you're in a super hurry (nothing prints quickly enough when you're in a hurry).

Great printer
February 19, 2014
By idochala from Miami, FL
I like the 11"x17" printing feature to create network drawings. Printer is fast and smooth. My experience has been good. The usage is around 40 pages per week, so it might not be a great thermometer for high usage needs.
