Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Home Office This all in one has all the bells and whistles big time, with the ability to not only print but also scan at A3 it fulfills all the demands of a small family business Although it seems bulky, it replaces a large flatbed scanner an A3 printer, the copier, and the fax machine leaving more work space on the desk top. Without doubt the MFC-J6510DW is the best bit of kit we have introduce to the office for a long time. The added bonus is the quality of printing which reproduces art work with perfect colour depth and rendition, and text in true sharp black. If you don't have a Brother this is one you could have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed an A3 printer My requirement was for an A3 printer, and this appeared to tick all the boxes - print quality is good, scanning and making PDF's from sheets is easy with the software enclosed. Couldn't work out how to go WiFi, but sits away from workspace and computer courtesy of a 2m printer cable. Downside - there appears to be no way to increase the RAM onboard (64Mb), and that does mean that some printing pauses before completing - AutoCAD drawings are my main printing requirement. Also, the manual feeder is a bind in that it only takes one sheet at a time, I need to print out multiple A3 and then multiple A4, so this marks the printer down, as I have to change paper in the tray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why no AirPrint?!?!? If a company with the industry standing of Brother designs a lovely new printer such as this one ( and lovely it is) why in earth would they not include the AirPrint function. As we move more and more towards IPad/ iPhone type device saturated market the AirPrint function would seem a very sensible if not essential piece of functionality, especially as Brother's own App for printing from iPad/iPhone is clunky and limiting. Very dissapointing especially as the machine print functions are otherwise fantastic. Would recommend this highly for anyone that needs a top class office/ home A3/4 printer with no expectation of printing easily from their IPad/iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, good quality, extraordinary value An A3 printer, scanner, copier and fax in one surprisingly compact box. Easy to set up, pretty easy to use and wi-fi is fast enough to print large photo files without resorting to a cable connection. Bulk paper tray, autofeeder for scanning/copying/faxing and single sheet feeder for thicker paper. This feeder is about my ony complaint as it frequently beeps to tell me a sheet is in place and then complains it isn't. And it doesn't always feed the paper through correctly aligned - maybe I'm not positioning the paper properly but when it works I can't see what I did differently. All in all, an excellent printer. The first A3 photo to come off was a joy to see.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review of recent purchase of MFC J6510DW The reason I bought this model was 1 All in one 2 copy & print A3 The print quality is not great, in an attempt to install it discovered not yet compatible with Windows 8 however there would be a release in mid January 2013 The fax line was broken so had to be replaced On a positive as I could install it due to the Windows8 issue the guy I spoke to on the helpdesk, was very helpful. Not sure I would recommend this but limited products on the market with A3 print and photocopy. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT BROTHER AUTOMATICALLY INCLUDE I WOULD RECOMMEND AS BELOW WHEN I HAVE SAID ABOVE I AM NOT SURE. IS THIS A REASONABLE THING TO DO?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what did I do before I bought my Brother Printer! I am quite a tecnophobe so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to work my brother printer, but I had nothing to worry about. Its so user friendly, the wireless aspect is so easy to set up, loading the inks was easy and the printing is amazing! so quick and beautiful quality. so many great features including ink save mode, and the ability to feed speciality papers from the back as well as keeping standard paper in the tray. The copying and scanning is true A3 and you can copy multiple sheets from the tray on top. I could go on for quite some time about how impressive the Brother A3 printer is, instead I will just advise everyone to give it a try, you won't be dissapointed :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant!!!! I do an awful lot of printing at home such as summonses and menu cards. I have read people complaining about the print quality. In my opinion this is one brilliant quality printer. I have no complaints whatsoever regarding the quality. I use quality paper and get quality output and I am a fussy devil. I love the duplex side of it as I was always fed up of printing seventy summonses and then waiting to turn them over. I can now go out or go to bed and don't have to remember to return to print the other side. What a relief. This is the first Brother I have owned as my previous printers have always been other makes and I have no hesitation to recommend this printer. Brilliant!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My MFC As an avid stamp collector, i need to be able to print pages larger than A4 and my new Brother has proved to be the ideal solution. It's also my first wireless printer and my initial apprehension about the set up was misplaced as it could not have been easier. Although it's early days, I'm very happy with the print quality and copying facilities although I've yet to use the scanner. In my view, excellent value for money and a good all round performer. Prior to retirement i was involved in publishing so I have a pretty good idea of the best and worst of printers. The MFC is certainly in the former category.
