Customer Reviews

MFCJ5945DW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Désolé, mais imprimante g.é.n.i.a.l.e ! Super machine. Mazette, il faut quand même un peut s'y connaitre notamment pour le scan via le serveur mail, mais les fonctionnalités sont top. Recto-verso automatique, mais aussi scan recto-verso les deux côtés à la fois, en une seule passe ! Via les raccourcis, on peut enregistrer une succession d'évènements : en un seul clic sur la machine on fait par exemple un scan recto-verso couleur 200pp envoyé par mail à mon adresse..; un seul clic ! L'impression est rapide et la qualité honnête pour une famille ou une entreprise (photographes passez votre chemin). On pourrait néanmoins améliorer : les galets d’entrainement pour le chargeur du dessus (scan un peu de travers), pas de possibilité de définir une talle max pour les fichiers envoyés par mal (scan par fichiers segmentés), pas trouvé de profil colorimétrique pour calibrage, etc. L’impression par téléphone est aussi nickel. En gros, l'imprimante est vachement bien, mais quand on bidouille, on a besoin de quelques broutilles en plus. Je conseille absolument c eproduit qui vaut quand même cher pour le particulier que je suis.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hardware good, customer support not great. Copies well, has good features but is difficult to set up. I still can't send faxes and I don't think Brother makes help available easily enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J5945DW From the time I hit the print button, it prints faster than my old printer. Almost instantaneously. I love the double sided scanning because it saves me a lot of time. I don't have to manually feed it like the old printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meine Bewertung für den Brother MFC-J5945DW Tolles Produkt und die richtige Kaufentscheidung - eine klare Kaufempfehlung! Auspacken, Aufstellen und Einrichten: Großer Karton mit hohem Eigengewicht da es sich um einen Drucker mit DIN-A4 Scan und DIN-A3 Druckfunktion handelt (war mir beim Kauf aber bewusst). Vom Gewicht her beim tragen besser zu zweit. Den Aufbau kann man auch alleine machen. Sehr gute Lösung mit Griffen an der Folie. Dadurch lässt sich der Drucker auch alleine aus dem Karton entnehmen. Das Einrichten ging problemlos, schnell und ohne Komplikationen von statten. Habe mir auf der Webseite die neusten Treiber und Programme für den Drucker runtergeladen. Der Drucker ließ sich problemlos mit dem WLAN der Fritz!Box 7590 und dem Surface Pro 6 verbinden. Die dazugehörige Google-App (Handy) habe ich auch gleich runtergeladen, installiert und mit dem Drucker verbunden. Druck über Handy funktionierte sofort und einwandfrei. Druckerfunktionen: Habe den Drucker nun seit vier Wochen in Verwendung. Sehr wertige Haptik. Es wackelt und klappert nichts! Bis jetzt getestete Funktionen sind alle einwandfrei. Beidseitige, gleichzeitige Scanfunktion ist eine enorme Arbeitserleichterung. Beidseitiger Druck bis jetzt auch einwandfrei und keinerlei Papierstaus etc. beim drucken und scannen. Der Drucker ist sehr schnell, da er das Papier im Querformat zuführt und bedruckt. Dadurch braucht der Druckkopf weniger Durchgänge. Beim automatischen wenden des Blattes im Drucker entstehen keine Streifen durch Rollen etc. Den Druck auf DIN-A3 habe ich noch nicht ausprobiert, sollte aber auch kein Problem darstellen. Die Farbe wirkt sehr gut (satt) und trocknet schnell auf normalem Naturpapier (80 g/m² Offset). Ein verwischen konnte ich bis jetzt nicht feststellen (verwende bei allen Druckern immer die Originaltinte). Die dokumentenechte Tinte/Farbe war ein wichtiger Kaufgrund für mich. Als gelernter Offsetdrucker und Drucktechniker mit fast 30-jähriger Erfahrung erlaube ich mir die Druckqualität als sehr gut bewerten zu können! Resümee: Der Drucker ist jeden Cent wert, auch wenn er bedingt der ganzen Funktionen kein Schnäppchen ist. Qualität hatte schon immer seinen Preis. Diesen bin ich auch bereit zu zahlen, da die tadellose Verarbeitung und die gute Technik mir einen Zeitgewinn (beidseitige Scan- und Druckfunktion) bringen und diese meine Lebensqualität steigert. Das ist unbezahlbar! Der Brother MFC-J5945DW ist ein hervorragend verarbeiteter und ich denke durch die großen Tintenpatronen auch sparsamer Drucker. Das konnte ich jedoch nach der kurzen Zeit nicht bewerten. Wichtig zu erwähnen finde ich auch das der Brother MFC-J5945DW "Made in Philippines" ist!!! Von mir eine klare Kaufempfehlung!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and Full of Options The MFC-J5945DW is incredibly fast and gives you crisp, clear printouts. The paper trays and ink are very accessible and easy to load. The rear paper feed is versatile for envelopes and such, however, the menus don't always provide enough information to select the proper paper or envelope size. The only criticism I would have is using the FAX feature and figuring out the sequence of sending and receiving via the menus and front panel are confusing at first. Make sure you download ALL the software during installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out with the old and in with the new We recently had to replace our old Brother machine which we had had for over 10 years. Really happy with the upgrade - easy to set up and get working - easy to use and very fast.
