Brother MFC-J870DW color inkjet multifunction device (scanner, copier, printer, fax, Duplex, WLAN, USB 2.0) Black (Personal Computers)

Customer Review

So, to all shorten a little, a quick overview of what stands out the first few days!
(I prefer here always mentally comparing the Canon MP640, who has taken leave after 4 years in the happy hunting grounds, and certainly was in a similar class)


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Unpacking well and clearly
Relatively fast and quickly installed - Someone who is not familiar, requires m. E. for about 1 hour with all the trimmings. Experienced significantly less!

Operating instructions for getting started well enough

Construction and settings on the device clear and understandable

Software kept simple and clear, einz as the installation and configuration options in the personal. Right-click menus. Since the Canon, however, was unclear in comparison

Good value for money


Scan function


Photo print of the included sample photos to really not good photo paper very well, so that definitely works to the satisfaction!

Short start time and warm-up generally to first print or scan (WAS THE CANON RELATIVELY a disaster !!!)
Personal settings in predetermined increments of 1 min. To 60 min until the MFC in the resting phase is (Menu Energy Saver), which is great!

WLAN integration quickly and easily on the Fritz! Box

Fax Settings - telephone number, etc. of connection made fast and works (only then) PERFECTLY - if you look knows a little about!
Here I have put my personal preferences as follows:
Send the MFC over the Fritz! Box Fon on port reception on the Fritz! Box via email forwarding. Since you can save paper and ink and is not disturbed
ONE STANDARD MFC changed; DIAL TONE ON "recognize" - That's it - everything else in the FRITZ! Box

Adjustable! Display clear and easy to use

Almost all of the functions possible with off PC

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


COMPATIBLE GOOD cartridges relatively twice as expensive as the Canon. But for the one who prints only little, that's no problem! Good replacement cartridges are in the 12-pack for about 20

Moderate quality when scanning images - even with the best scan setting. Here should the claims and may really not be too high! I would judge it with school grade 2-3, depending on the starting material of course

Missing adapter for connection to the Fritz! Box to the Fonbuchse

Missing network connection cable, z. B. to the Fritz! Box

THE MAN MUS carefully before purchasing KNOWLEDGE AND CONSIDERATION:
Connection for power supply left side behind - no right angle cable, only just form!
It can be a big problem if the specified width of the device is assumed to be true width. The stand when the device can thus be calculated incorrectly - deception! S. a. The end of the movie!)

General saw a little "cheap and rickety" plastic appearance of the paper and photo paper tray and the lid

No extra slot for IMAGES PRINT etc. available
For printing images 10 * 15, the cassette must be pulled out and loaded with photo paper in the integrated extra pocket are (see detail in the film)
For A4 photo print photo paper must be inserted how the A4 paper

The top lid holds not independently during opening when the aut. Feed not want to use such. As for an image scan. However, the cover for connecting the cable for fax etc. already.


Well, soon I add this here.

Additional work experience after a few days on June 1, 2014

Also briefly explains the DVD printing is good to very good. Is impressive in any case for a printer in this price range !!!
Operation also works quite well in practice because the DVD printing device well disposed and always available is under the lid. sa movie

The ink consumption seems to be moving in quite normal frame!
Especially super here is the opportunity to enter the ink level at lightning speed across the screen!

The operation with the included PaperPort and NewSoft CD Labeler software is very good and works flawlessly! And most importantly, absolutely versatile in application.
Of particular note are positive into the many possibilities of export of scanned documents in other applications! Just great!

With software and drivers no problems under Windows 7 64bit!

Ending up with the disadvantage if you can call these as such at all, is the fact that the printer can not be operated simultaneously via LAN and / or WLAN!
Anyone who has reasonable grounds to have to choose one or the other mode, which should consider in advance precisely!
Because need to bring about a change here below when changing always in the settings
All Settings - Network - Network I / F
the appropriate connection type LAN or WLAN can be set.

Cumbersome, but necessary if use the one and the other function you want od. Must !?

But I think you can live with ...

So, that's it from me!
IN PARTICULAR; FROM ME ANYWAY a clear recommendation!
