Review: Printer Brother MFC-J995DW

The Brother MFC-J995DW is an good printer for students, but its versatility and performance make it a good choice for a wide range of uses. It features Brother’s high-yield INKvestment Tank, allowing you to print a large number of documents while keeping costs low. Photos are printed with great detail; however, its color accuracy may be a bit disappointing for professional graphic designers and the like. Printing speed is good and connecting the printer to a mobile device is as easy as a tap thanks to its NFC support.

The Brother MFC-J995DW is an excellent family printer. Printed photos look great, although color accuracy is unremarkable. Cost remains low when printing in large numbers, whether you’re printing in black only or in color. Its scan resolution and color depth are great, especially if you need to enlarge pictures or do some light touch up.

The Brother MFC-J995DW is a good printer for home or small offices. It can print a large number of black and white documents at a low cost, but printing speed for such documents is on the slow side. It has a great build quality that feels durable, and its automatic document feeder lets you multitask without hassle. However, there’s no duplex scanning, and printing Microsoft Office files through the mobile app can be difficult.

The Brother MFC-J995DW is great for printing black and white documents. It can print a large number at a very low cost, but its printing speed for black only documents is sub-par. The included ink cartridges are high-yield, and you can get even larger ones if they aren’t sufficient. The build quality is impressive and the cartridges are easily accessible from the front of the printer when you need to replace them.

The Brother MFC-J995DW has an outstanding cartridge system. It features Brother’s INKvestment Tank Ink System, which holds more ink per cartridge. The ink cartridges are easily accessible from the front and the printer accepts Brother’s Ultra High Yield cartridges (LC3035). Third-party ink cartridges are available, but the printer wouldn’t recognize the yellow cartridge.Photo:Brother
