FINALLY! All my paper jam needs in one tight package.
on March 26, 2012
I've spent a lot of time trying to find a printer in this price range that would meet all of my paper jam needs. Then Brother comes along and BOOM - paper jams that exceed even what I imagined were possible. The Brother MFCJ625 features a "non-rolling" roll bar that traps paper on *every single print.* Yes, you read that right - no more worrying about whether the paper will jam or not, the guesswork is done. And with the built in Wi-Fi you can now jam paper wirelessly.
"But wait," you say. "Why would I want to spend 2/3 of my day trying to dislodge bits of paper with tweezers from between the tiny teeth of a roll bar while holding a flashlight in my mouth?" Brother is already a step ahead of you. It may actually be 4:30 pm in the real world, meaning that you're now late for that meeting/kid's ball game/surgery you planned to attend. But the clock on the Brother MFCJ625DW will assure you that it's only 10:30 am, no matter how many times you reset it. It's like *gaining* 6 hours every single day.
With the Brother MFCJ625DW, your paper jam issues will compound exponentially the more you use the printer. It's all part of Brother's "Watch Your Life Slip Away Moment by Moment" initiative, in which customers spend hours staring into the black abyss of the paper tray, cursing the day they were born. They've cleverly hidden all the places paper can actually get stuck behind immovable walls of cheap plastic and metal teeth. There's a compartment in the back that allows the majority of the paper to be extracted, but don't worry - no matter how gently you extract it, there will always be tiny bits left behind for you to find. Think of it as a micro-scavenger hunt that ends with you slashing your wrists in frustration. At this price point? That's a bargain and then some!
Laptop users will especially enjoy the Brother MFCJ625DW. The marathon paper jams forever eradicate that pesky sense of freedom and portability you enjoy with longer laptop battery life and wi-fi connectivity. That's right, the Brother MFCJ625DW can jam paper no matter where you print from. This means you'll need to constantly move from your location back to the printer to fix the jam (don't forget your tweezers). It's great exercise, as is writing out your report, paper, or thesis by hand, just like your great-grandmother used to do. After you realize that no matter what you do, what type of paper you use, or what god you pray to, there is simply no way the Brother MFCJ625DW is ever going to successfully print without jamming, you can finally give up on the notion of productivity, creativity, and free time to spend with loved ones. But don't worry, the endless "spooling" messages that appear - on the rare occasion the printer actually communicates with you in anything other than arcane error codes - will give you a feeling of productivity that lasts, literally for hours.
