Great little multi-function printer

Have had the printer for over a month. For what we need we are very satisfied with the quality of the print, speed and ease of use. The price was good too.

more than pleased
June 23, 2015
By TheCaptian from Swansea, Illinois
I'm more that pleased with my new all-in-one. After having constant problems & failures with my HP. I chose to go with the MFC-J870DW for 2 reasons; 1st the price, 2nd the reviews were exceptional, 3rd what it had to offer, over my HP; 4th I was totally surprised that it would print 2 sided without me turning the pages around. I have not received a FAX or sent one yet, but hoping it works just fine.
Would recommend this to any one for home or small office use.

Very good product

For a non-laser printer this one is very good. Print quality is very acceptable, the print directly onto a printable DVD or CD disk is fantastic. Very pleased with it

Overpaid for Features
June 22, 2015
By Camdog15 from NY
Our house needed a second printer for a laptop and we already owned a MFC-J470DW which was good. We were looking for a printer that could use the same ink cartridges as to save money when buying in bulk so getting another Brother was logical but thought a different model would be easier for the laptop to know where to print to. We chose the J870 because of its extra features - the extra photo tray, pictbridge, and the outline and scan feature, etc. Was hoping to take advantage of some features with my Canon dslr camera and iphone.
I am disappointed that the J870 printer did not come with all manuals required to setup airprint. It was very difficult to setup wireless connection with Windows 8 on the laptop. For 6 weeks we could use only a USB cable for printing which had to be purchased as one was not provided in the box and it takes a non-traditional USB cable (type A/B - this has a small square on one end and is likely to not be in your house or office when you need one). The photo tray often jams when changing type of paper and its much easier to change paper format on the J470 as the tray on the J870 for 4x6" photo paper is next to impossible to get your hand anyplace near the loading area without the risk of breaking the plastic. The other enhanced features such as outline and scan I found out I already had a program on my laptop that did the same.
If I had to purchase a printer again, I would not spend the extra money for the extra features on this printer. It is not all that different than the J470 but cost almost twice as much and the Brother alternative I looked at - the J650 would have been sufficient and also less expensive. Or I would reconsider another brand.
Quality of printing is good. Touchscreen panel is nice. Very easy to access and load ink. Location of USB cable is in front under scanner so now when I want to change from wireless to USB printing its fast to plug it in and just switch device settings on computer. This gives it 3 stars if you are willing to overlook the price.
