Brother MFC J6520DW Printer This printer: Has great features Excellent value for money Performs well 26 January 2017
Solid Printer with quibbles Easy to set-up, if you follow the clear instructions, but not exactly plug and play. Fairly fast and quiet. OK to Good colour print quality - this is largely down to the quality specified when setting up the print. A3 scanner is good. Only down sides are that double sided copying is semi-manual, and I, at least, found it difficult to use the manual feeder at the rear of the machine. But a good buy (worth shopping around) and I would recommend and buy again if need be. i have had the machine for about a month, with fairly light usage, and have not yet exhausted the print cartridges supplied. 25 January 2017
Bad Print Quality I think of myself as fairly clued up with computers. This Printer , however, I cannot work out. Everything is fine with it apart from the print quality. It awful. I read lots of reviews before I bought it which said the print quality was good but its not. The colours don\t match straight lines are jittery. Photos have lines through them. I am using their paper, their ink. I have clean it again and again since I bought it; I've ran tests. It just seem to be poor quality. I think its to late to send back as well so stuck with it 18 January 2017
Excelent Printer This is the second one of these I have had. the first one lasted three years. It is efficient and gives excellent quality prints. The multi feed tray is a great feature and the double sided printing saves paper. 02 November 2016
MFC-J6520DW Works well, looks good! No problems, just a while getting used to it. 27 October 2016
Brother 6520 I purchased this item to scan a large quantity of old A3 drawings to pdf and it never missed a beat even with some damaged edges, so for me this printer has already paid for itself. It has a good build quality and the software was floorless. Excellent value for money. 17 October 2016
Easy to set up and great value I bought this printer because it prints A3 and double sided A4 It replaces a Brother printer and I like this one better. easy to set up and I've managed to print from my I Phone which is a first. Very happy with it, I've had it about a month. 09 October 2016
Great all rounder Bought to replace a previous Brother printer that was 11 years old. Opted for A3 capability. Easy to set up as wireless with my limited IT skills. I wish it was easier to switch between paper sizes but that is just an occasional faff. Excellent value for money. 28 June 2016
