    ECONOMICAL & Well Thought Out OFFICE Multifunction, February 18, 2015

    This review is from: MULTIFUNCTION – COLOR – INK-JET – PRINT, COPY, SCAN, FAX – BLACK (FAST MODE): UP (MFC-J870DW) – (Office Product)

    This MFC-J870DW was purchased by a client on my recommendation. They wanted an office color printer/scanner at low cost, network capable and with two sided printing. All those criteria were met by this Brother WorkSmart series Ink Jet multifunction.

    Installation:
    The MFC-J870DW installation was very easy. In our case we used WiFi to tie it into the office network. In our case we configured the settings manually which was very easy from the front panel. Once on the network we popped-in the supplied CD and installed the driver and related software. The installation wizard searched for and found the printer on the network. Easy-peasy!

    One nice feature of the Brother software installation with a networked MFC is registering your PC with the device. This facilitates scan-to-pc functions which are very useful when the device is in another office but you want to scan to your PC. Another well thought-out and usable feature.

    The Brother printer software has a relatively small footprint compared to many HP competitors. Combined with a well thought out suite of tools provides a usable experience without bogging down your PC.

    Touch Screen
    The 2.7 in touch screen is the heart of what I and my clients finds a largely intuitive interface on the MFC-J870DW. Everything can be controlled from the touch screen and the adjacent numeric keypad. My client mainly uses the brother control center for scanning and printing control and the screen for copying. All setup functions are available via the touch screen as well.

    Printer Capabilities:
    The printer is reasonably speedy for an inexpensive inkjet. It’s rated at 33ppm for black only printing and 27ppm for color, but these are max rated speeds. In practical use the my client gets more like 10ppm with her documents that have a small color logo and a couple of minor color components. Realistically, this is plenty fast for her low volume use. There is a high-volume work group printer used for big jobs.

    Print quality is focused on text and graphics. Photos print very nicely but if you are going to be printing photos for display you might want to consider another option. To be clear – it’s very good, but there are better for photos. Text and graphics (like logos) are excellent.

    The two sided printing is a nice feature that has become common on many printer. There is a direct feed tray for special materials like envelopes or even printer compatible DVD/CD media! We have not tried the CD/DVD but I think that’s pretty cool. You can also print from PictBridge compatible cameras or files on USB sticks. Lots of features and versatility.

    Ink Cartridges:
    Brother has standard and high capacity ink cartridges. If the printer is used regularly the high capacity cartridges are economical.
    Brother Printer LC103BK/C/M/Y High Yield Cartridge
    Brother LC1032PKS Printer High Yield Cartridge Ink Black (2-Pack)
    Brother LC103 (LC1033PKS) Ink Cartridge 3-Pack – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow

    Scanner Capabilities:
    The scanner has the same nice interface as the more expensive Brother multifunction devices. The included 20 sheet automatic document feeder has come in handy on several occasions. Single sheet scanning on the glass is how my client like to go mostly. Both work well and can produce pdf, jpg, tiff and has ocr software to product editable documents from scans. The scanner is one sided only – it will not automatically scan both sides of a sheet.

    There are Brother apps that let you scan to your IOS or Android devices over the network. This is great in concept but for this client it does not get used much at all. The same app provides for printing from mobile devices and this is used much more often.

    The installation of scanner software includes PaperPort 12SE. This scanned document software is very usable and newer versions are available on Amazon.

    Copy and FAX
    The J870DW includes a built-in copy function. This is an obvious feature with a scanner and printer in one box. I was surprised now often my client uses this MFC as a copier! They are very pleased with this capability.

    We did not connect or configure the FAX for this client, so no evaluation on that feature set.

    Networking:
    The MFC-J870DW has wireless network connectivity and a LAN port is on the printer. Network connection includes a plethora of options from airprint for Apple users, Google. cloud…

    This is the best printer I have ever had (and I have had a lot, usually HP). It is truly compact. Works with a direct USB connection from my desktop computer and then seamlessly using Wifi with my laptop.. that would be simultaneously with no glitches. I was beginning to think I had the magic Hanukkah ink system, but it finally ran out of one color, and then, the Black (LC101BK).. But, this was literally, after hundreds of full color graphic pages. Yes I am doing fine graphics with InDesign on this printer, and it is truly fine. What a great printer..my friend the Printer!
