Inkjet All-in-One with Auto Document Feeder and Easy-to-Setup Wireless Networking

When you’re selecting a color inkjet all-in-one for your home or home office, you want a machine that’s going to offer you easy, intuitive operation, plenty of connectivity options, and fast print speeds - all without breaking your budget.

The Brother MFC-J870DW, part of the Work Smart Series, may be exactly what you’re looking for. It helps improve your productivity with print speeds up to 33ppm black/27ppm color in fast mode and ISO print speeds up to 12ppm black/10ppm color1. It’s compact, so it won’t waste your valuable work space; holds up to 100 sheets in the paper tray; and makes it easy to print, copy, scan, and fax your important business documents.

User-Friendly Design

The wireless assistant completely walks you through network setup without the need for a USB cable or a network password. Share the machine with others on a network using 802.11 b/g/n or wired Ethernet networking, or connect to a single computer using a USB cable4. Using the machine is equally easy. The 2.7” color TouchScreen Display and intelligent TouchPanel that only displays the keys you need make navigating your machine’s robust functionality completely intuitive. The MFC-J870DW is also simple to maintain, thanks to the easy-access, front-loading ink cartridges.

Flexible Connectivity

The MFC-J870DW gives you lots of choices for connecting to Apple, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone, or Blackberry mobile devices.

NFC capability automatically establishes a direct connection between your NFC-enabled device and the MFC-J870DW, so you can print or scan without having to connect to a network or enter any login credentials5. The MFC-J870DW also supports wireless printing from your mobile device via6 AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Brother iPrint & Scan, Cortado Workplace, and Wi-Fi Direct, that allows you to print from PC or mobile devices without the need for a router.

Convenient Web Applications

The MFC-J870DW comes with a suite of pre-installed Brother Cloud Apps2 that can be accessed directly from the machine's TouchScreen Display. The Brother Cloud Apps suite is expandable, and Brother is developing new apps that will become available. You can also access popular web services directly from your internet-connected MFC-J870DW from the TouchScreen Display using the Web Connect6 interface.

Low Cost of Ownership

In addition to being affordable to purchase, the MFC-J870DW includes cost-saving features like duplex (two-sided) printing to help save paper and Ink Save mode to help reduce ink use. Using high-yield replacement ink cartridges4, the MFC-J870DW can help lower your operating costs.

My 3 year old HP PhotoSmart printer died (control panel dead) so I ventured back into the printer marketplace. I am a low print volume home user. My main criteria was to find a reliable printer with low cost of operation. It seemed to me I was spending too much for ink based on the number of documents/pictures that I printed. I narrowed my selection to either a Brother or an HP 8600. The Brother ink cartridges seemed less expensive compared to the other brands. Printer reviews showed that the HP 8600 line had favorable costs per page for ink consumption. Fortunately my Consumer Reports magazine (August, 2013) arrived in the mail. It had an article titled "The Case of the Disappearing Ink." Their tests identified the extra cost of occasional printing (ink consumed for maintenance tasks like head cleaning). They cited Brother printers as being most frugal with annual costs in the 0 to $15 range. The HP 8600 was the worst case with a $126 annual cost. Obviously I selected this Brother Printer.

Installation: I had no major problems installing it (Windows 7, wireless network.)

Print Quality: I printed a few photos and a sample of documents. I have no issues with print quality.

Fax: Works fine over my Time Warner digital phone system.

Scanner and Copy functions seem comparable to my HP. For fax, scanning and copy I find that the document feeder is very handy.

I did print a few things from my Android tablet just to see if it worked. No problems.

Only time will tell if it meets my reliability and costs expectations. If you are a high volume user (over 500 pages a month) I would look at the HP 8600 line.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really appreciate this printer's capabilities. I print a LOT in my career, and with this Brother printer I can cut down on the amount of paper I actually use by printing two-in-one, which prints two pages on one side of one sheet of paper, side by side. It shrinks down the pages and makes them fit perfectly, and then allows automatic double-sided printing. That means 4 pages fit on one piece of paper! That's going to save me a heck of a lot of money on paper!

The printer was easy to set up (much easier than others I've used), and I love that it's smaller than other all-in-one printers without sacrificing function. Scanning, printing, and copying all work very well. Pages look great, scans are nice and clear, and the user interface (not to be overlooked in a printer) is excellent. The touch screen interface is straightforward and simple. Everything is clearly labeled, and there are "wizards" to set things up and get you through the more technical stuff.

It's interesting that USB, LAN, and telephone lines are fed through the machine, under the top lid, instead of merely plugging in the back. I also find it kind of amusing that the top lid (not the scanner lid, but the whole printer's top) has a built-in prop. It kind of makes you feel like you're working under the hood of a high-tech car.

After using printers that do automatic double-sided printing, I can't go back to the old fashioned single-side printers. On older printers if you wanted two-sided printing, you needed to feed the paper back through manually-- Usually by reloading the tray. On this printer, it actually sucks the paper back in after printing one side, and then prints the other before spitting it out. Very cool.

I can't comment on the fax feature because I've had no occasion to use it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My experience with HP and Epson printers has been less than stellar. Lesser recognized printer brands like Brother, Samsung, Canon, etc. surprise me with great print quality, good hardware & software, ease of setup and low cost print supplies.

This Brother All-in-One (AIO) is no exception. It provides great output in a small package at a sub hundred dollar level.The printer is very compact for an AIO.

The printer has a plasticky, flimsy, light-weight feel and does not feel robust. That is generally not an issue for a printer, but for an AIO where you will be interacting a little more with the hardware when using the Scan and Fax functions, it becomes an issue. You have to be extra delicate around it. With teenagers/kids (my purpose!) handling it, I expect a few cracks or tray dislocations.

I am a neat freak and I do appreciate the included cord management. Some might find this tedious as the ports are located toward the front center of the printer and below the scanning glass. The telephone wires come in from a small removeable plastic tab on the right of the printer and the USB and ethernet cables from the back of the printer.

Print and copy quality are excellent. Photos print out a little softer, but it is definitely excellent for all home or school purposes. I printed a color demo page and copied it - there was little to no difference beween the original and the copy.

Scanning also provides excellent results. You can create an OCR file, save to file or USB drive, save as image or email directly using the built-in color LCD screen.

Fax quality is good, but appears below par as one is used to high quality copies from work and your local Kinkos.

The nicest part of this printer is the reasonable cost of supplies.
