Ratings and Reviews

Customer reviews

MFC-J880DW is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 330.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine while it stays on-line There seems to be an issue with the machine and windows 10. I have used a number of Brother printers for years and never had so many print errors indicating my machine is off-line. However, when on-line, the print speed and quality is excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy anything else I have wasted three rounds of ink cleaning the ink head and trying to get it to print correctly. running the print maintenance the lines show up incorrectly, I run the cleaning process and they work. I print one or two documents and have to do the process all over again. I only used brother ink cartridges and have tried several different ones to make sure it wasn't simply a faulty cartridge. There are much better options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement printer I replaced an older Brother printer with this MFC-J880DW. It has even more features then the I replaced. The printing speed and scanning quality is just what I need. The price was right also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly! Loaded with features only found in more expensive printers, plus inexpensive ink refill cartridges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and use Bought this to replace an earlier Brother Model. Updated Paperport program is easy to use and intuitive. Print is reasonable quality and it appears ink cartridges will last much longer (albeit a little more expensive).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability The Brothers MFC-J880DW has been a dedicated work machine for me. It does all the copying, faxing and printing for my small enterprise with great reliability. Definitely appreciate the automatic ink shipments that arrive when needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good connectivity I was searching for an inexpensive connect printer for my wife to print grandchildren pictures. This printer performs that task. All of the additional features are a bonus. Inkjet printers are slow but laser jets haven’t achieved equal size savings and are too expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good. This printer works well, integrates nicely with mobile, and the price of ink is reasonable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Squint at the leetle screeeeeen and screeeeeam The first ten times you use the Brother MFCJ880DW printer, it will fall off your local network and tell you you're to blame. Then in desperation, you'll call for help. A disembodied voice will tell you exactly what to do, step by step, and it will work, briefly. The second time you manage to get through to a person, the same thing will happen. After a month or two of this, the machine may work three or four times in a row. Then it will think of a new way to fall down. Back to the phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor Pretty good printers but don't hold up, develop glitches. Have had two, neither lasted a year without developing errors that could not be corrected by me or Brother support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suits my needs I purchased a Brother for product support. I bought this model as it had the features I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! This is probably the 5th Brother all-in-one I have owed. I like the easy to use on-board menu and the flip out single sheet feeder in the back is genius! Perfect for printing on special paper so you don't have to take the paper tray out each time. Cartridges are reasonably priced as well. I use Brother all-in-ones both at my business and home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Value The Brother has many features and capabilities for the price. The ink is easy to change, also.
Date published: 2018-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very economical I have been very happy with this printer so far. The text is great and it seems to use very little ink. I have had it for a couple of months and the original ink cartridges are still 2/3 full except for the black which is half full. I haven't printed any photos yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suitable to our needs Faster and quieter than reviews would have you believe. Picture quality acceptable. But, it seems to run through ink relatively quickly. The only cartridge available in extra capacity is black.
Date published: 2018-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and acceptable price point I needed to do a lot of color cd labels and case inserts. Despite this printer’s size and great price, it performed better than other larger/more expensive printers I formally owned. If you don’t mind hand feeding thicker glossy paper, this is the printer for photos etc. Very good color quality and distribution. Like all brands, color cartridges are pricey but this one very easy to change cartridges in printer.....idiot proof. Don’t know how long this printer will last but The projects I’ve already printed has already paid for the acquisition cost. Been using Brother printers for many years, this one is a total winner for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use wireless printer! This Brother printer is great because I am able to use it with my iPad and all our other laptop computers to print in color or black & white. The ink is very affordable and it is not constantly wasting ink like some of the other name-brand printers do when they are cleaning the ink heads. The color is true to life and the menu features make it easy to choose the ones you need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, but. Nice features, but remote printing can be troublesome and sometimes challenging. Does everything we need. Good value for the price.
