MFCJ680DW 3.8 5 4 4
Frustrating Printer decides when an ink cartridge is dry and then wont print until cartridge replaced even in black & white. Most frustrating. Cartridges expensive and don't seem to last long. Would never buy Brother printer again 02 August 2016
A Little Disappointing Considering that I paid much more for this printer than any other one I've had, I am not thrilled by its performance. The paper tray isn't recognised after being refilled, & it took me several attempts to get this sorted out. The print itself is not as dark as my previous printers, unless I request 'best' in the options, but this is not too much of a problem. One of the reasons I bought this printer was that it;s supposed to take thicker material (magnetic photograph paper). This has been just about OK, but not 100% successful. 10 June 2016
Quick and easy setup Did not setup for fax as not required, but only took a few minutes from unpacking to be in use. Been using it now for a couple of weeks with no problems or issues. 01 June 2016
useful for the whole family we found this product easier to set up and use over the wi-fi than our older model. It has been a good general all-rounder and although a fax feature is included, it doesn't have to be installed if not needed. Good value for money. 19 May 2016
