Brother MFC-J6930DW

 

This business-centric color inkjet all-in-one printer is relatively fast, with good print quality, competitively low running costs, and flexible paper handling.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes tabloid-size pages. Competitively fast. Low running costs. Single-pass auto-duplexing ADF. Three paper input sources. Good print quality overall.

Subpar graphics.

In addition, while both the Epson WF-7620 and WF-7610 are capable AIOs, since they've been out for so long, their running costs are excessive—Epson needs to update its wide-format WorkForce models. On the other hand, the MFC-J6930DW is more than...

Brother MFC-J6930DW review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Brother MFC-J6930DW is a fully-featured, office workhorse that can print up to A3 in size. It prints out photos in good quality, albeit at a sluggish speed. But what's it like overall for print quality? And are the printing costs affordable? Based...

Lots of features.

 

I needed one printer that could do it all for letter, legal, and ledger size printing. I needed a printer that can print from USB, wireless, or from an SD card, and at this price point this printer has not disapointed me. It is of good quality, I don't...

One Caution if You are Printing in #8CD1CC Blue

 

Perfect in every way but one...and only if you have a logo featuring a color similar to Tiffany Blue. You must use the 'inkjet paper setting' for accurate results. Tech support was great in working with me to figure it out, so kudos to them. It's...

Just Like the 20DW But a Little Bigger

 

I replaced my old MFC-J6920DW with the newer 30DW because the cost of replacing the print drum on the 20 was more than the cost of a brand new 30. The 20 lasted (to the day) 2 years. Makes me wonder if Brother is running a planned obsolesce business...

Another Home Run from Brother

 

A little over twenty years ago I got fed up with the usual brand and bought my first Brother printer. Over the years I have bought a couple of dozen, of every type, for home and business use - sometimes several copies of a single model. The...

My findings.

 

This machine replaced a HP. Like machine except it prints too slow and the black seems not to last very long.
