Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Multi-Function Printer I've ever Owned The MFC-J985DW is the best printer I've ever owned. It works perfectly and the ink prices are reasonable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Followed instructions to fix ink issues and blew through all my color ink cartridges.
Date published: 2023-03-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't let it run out of ink! Loved the printer until it stopped wifi communicating with my computer. Now half of the software is gone or not working. Tried SEVERAL times to delete and reinstall software but to no avail. Now only works with wired connection and lost over half of its function. Good printer... terrible software. Also, when one ink cartridge is empty or even very low, printer just stops working and says there is no connection.
