From the Manufacturer
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.
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.
The MFC-J870DW gives you lots of choices for connecting to Apple, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone, or Blackberry mobile devices. Near Field Communication (NFC) is an existing technology found on many of today's smartphones and mobile devices that enables wireless two-way communication between two devices within close proximity of one another. 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.

Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
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. Fifty dollars will get you a full set of high-yield B&W and color cartridges which will yield ~600 copies. For a home-use printer your cartridges will probably dry before you run out. The last HP color cartridge I purchased was $45 which yielded me ~300 copies before it dried out.
A little difficult to find so here are the cartridge links on Amazon:
Color: Innobella LC1033PKS Tri-pack Ink Cartridge - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow
B&W: Brother Printer LC103BK High Yield Cartridge Ink, Black
A definite recommend for a home-use printer!
* Double sided printing
* Compact Size
* Easy Setup
* Good cord management
* Lower cost cartridge costs as compared to HP and Epson
* Reasonable price point
* Cheap plasticky feel - does not feel robust
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. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it has VOIP-friendly settings in the fax setup, though, which means I should have no problem sending faxes via my Ooma service.
Ink loading is easy enough. You don't even need to open the top lid of the printer and get under the hood; It loads in a little door on the front right side of the printer. Slide in, click, you're done.
Ink prices are reasonable. First-party black ink is around $20 a cartridge, while 3rd party inks are about half that price. Of course, Brother cautions against using 3rd-party ink, but in a couple decades of using printers I've never had one suffer damage from refilled, recycled, re-manufactured or third-party inks. It's ultimately your decision, of course, but be aware that Brother probably will try to consider it a warranty-busting act to use third-party ink. From what I understand, however, the law prevents printer manufacturers from voiding your warranty for using third-party inks or refills.
I'm knocking off a single star because I don't really like the requirement to open the printer's top lid to plug in common connections like USB or telephone. It's just a strange design choice that requires a bit more work and effort to do something that, for most devices, requires simply looking at the back of the unit.
Otherwise, this is an amazingly nice printer: Fast, efficient, easy to install, and user-friendly. Four stars, and a recommendation from me to buy it if you are in the market for an all-in-one printer for the home or small office, and want to save a little space in the process.
EDIT: As the first comment indicated, I forgot to mention how handy the two-sided printing with auto-feed is. Well, let me say: It's VERY handy. I use it nearly every day for my work. It's a great feature that should not be overlooked.
