Brother MFC-J6957DW review | TechRadar

Written by admin

The X Series are Brothers premium inkjet printers for small businesses (opens in new tab) focused on the office and the Brother MFC-J6957DW (opens in new tab) is his flagship. It’s the highest-spec business inkjet we’ve used and certainly the fastest. With a print speed of 30ppm, it is faster than many laser printers that normally fill the role in a busy office that this inkjet was designed for.

There are several things that an inkjet like this can do better. For starters, it can not only print on A3/tabloid paper, but also copy on that size. A laser that can do this would have to be much larger and obviously wouldn’t be able to print on coated photo paper.

This top-of-the-line four-in-one has room for every function you can imagine. There are three separate paper trays with space for 750 sheets of paper and the option to upgrade. There’s an automatic document feeder, a large touchscreen interface, NFC for secure print jobs and a fax (opens in new tab) facility. The downside to inkjets, of course, is the cost of their cartridges, which always have a lower capacity than toner cartridges, but even this distinction is blurred by the unusually large inkjet carts used here.

With a claimed yield of 6,000 mono and 5,000 color prints, Brother’s high-capacity cartridges are more economical than many laser printers. At around £670 (about US$810, AU$1,189) it costs about the same as a comparable laser, so let’s find out which one is best.
