Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother DCP-J725DW I was looking for a compact all in one printer and discovered the Brother DCP-J725DW. After reading some online reviews I decided that this was the printer for me. The ability to print direct from my iPad is very useful. It can also be used like a photocopier if you need single items, which negates the need of booting your PC solely for that purpose. The only complaint I have is the Blue Adhesive transport tape left several glue marks on the printer casing. After some rubbing of isopropyl alcohol I managed to remove these marks. All in all if you after a compact all-in-one printer where the ink cartridge refills are not expensive, I couldn't recommend this printer enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb printer-scanner-copier When my first ever printer, a faithful 6 year old DCP130, started to eat print cartridges, I was told it would be cheaper to buy a new printer than get the old one serviced. Looking at the various cheaper-end multi-function machines, it seems Brother still came up trumps, and the DCP-J725DW had the best reviews of all... but it had just been taken out of production. Thankfully I found one online. It is barely bigger than my old printer, quite compact compared to some other machines, yet it does duplex copying/printing and it has a snazzy touch-screen display. The wi-fi connection was dead easy to set up - it did most of it itself! - and it works like a dream so far. VERY pleased with the quality of photo printing. I've yet to see how well the inks last, but for the price this has to be a winner. Really pleased with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My DCP-J725DW Brother 'all in one' As a non technical OAP I find that my new Brother printer is a real gem. I have previously had various makes of printers over the years, and all have been difficult to understand and use. This is the best one yet, copying, scanning, printing and so much more at the push of a button. Long may my present stress free printing continue. No government health warning on this machine..OAP Les.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I recently bought the Brother DCP-J725DW all in-one printer and it has not let me down. I have just started my Teacher Training and was looking for a printer that offered a longer life on the ink cartridges. This printer may not be the cheapest on the market but considering the quality of the printing (black & colour) and the fact that I am still on the original ink cartridges, it outweighs all the other cheaper printers that I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with; what more could I ask for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good all round product My previous all in one printer was a Brother which had given me 5 years good service. The J725 DW was on offer cheaper than the next model down, the J525.. In fact, the J525 may have suited me better as I am unlikely to use the the 20 sheet feeder in the lid which makes it heavier, Whilst the print quality could be a bit sharper it is certainly more than acceptable for my needs. The print speed has improved and I was really impressed with being able to print from ageing iPhone 3GS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all round printer I previously had a DCP340CW for many years but I was having wifi connection issues. However, I didn't hesitate to continue with Brother and so far it has done all it has been asked. My only disappointment was that I have a purchased copy of Nuance 14 but this just wouldn't communicate. It just doesn't seem to be supported. I had to revert to the Brother supplied Nuance 12 and this works fine. This will be an issue with Nuance rather than Brother.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from compatibility Overall I have so found this to be a good machine - easy to use and understand. I have had problems finding a suitable type of photo paper that the machine will take up on the feed in from the paper tray. The number of pages that a cartridge is supposed to print .. a better definition is needed - it is certainly not printing that number of pages when printing photographs. It prints well, scans well and easily and the photocopier works well.
