Customer Reviews

MFC-J985DW is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 918.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ink and soul sucking The printer uses ink very quickly and even though I had the larger black ink cartridge, it wouldn’t print in black and white because one color cartridge was empty. Very very disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Occasional jams as time passes. Even with limited use, after several years it gets a paper jam. Never when it was new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Not working now, about 3 years it worked fine. Must be sent to repair shop to repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quelle autonomie des cartouches objectif ? une imprimante qui ronronne avec un mac ou un iphone. Objectif atteint et surtout, une autonomie record des cartouches !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I’ve had this printer for several years and it continues to work very well. Liked it so much that we bought another one for our vacation home. Ink lasts a long time and is much less expensive than previous printers I’ve owned from a competitor. I’m looking to get the same printer again for a family member.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I'm impressed with this machine. I've utilized it as much at home as in my office. Many features are very accommodating, wireless printing, email scanning, and basic copying. Photo features are good although I don't need it on a regular basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 years-----works FINE To really judge a printer,must be done,after you have had it for awhile. Myself,have had approximately 1.5. years. Use it with a windows and a Chromebook,and android phone. Works perfectly. Thought there might be problems with a Chromebook,but extremely happy on how it performs. Saw many 1 star reviews, but to be honest--I doubt them,, as this is the best user friendly printer,that I have ever used. The only flaw,is it does not print as quickly as I would like to. Also use it on 3 other window laptops in my house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does Everything Well My MFC-J985DW basically does everything well. My former employer purchased the machine (I worked remotely), and I had come to like the machine so much that I purchased it from them rather than shipping it back to the company HQ.
