I wanted several features in a new printer. Large format printing (11" x 17") with minimum borders was a must as I do engineering drawings. Also two sided printing, ability to print on label stock and card stock, copying, and faxing. The yearly ink costs for my old printer was really excessive so lower ink cost was also a must. This printer seems to meet them all and then some. With two paper trays that each hold an inch high stack of paper, up to the 11 x 17 size, paper loading should be much less frequent. And the rear, manual feed slot is excellent for thicker stock, like card stock or labels because it has a straight paper path through the machine so die cut labels should not be stripped off. I have seen some reviews that criticized the rear position of this manual feed slot, but the rear position actually is the best place for it due to the ability to feed die cut label stock or other heavy stock because it avoids the necessity of making a "U" turn inside the machine as would be necessary with a front, manual feed slot. As I said above, a "U" turn like this tends to strip labels off their backing sheet. I have fought this problem in other printers and it is no fun taking the printer apart to remove all those stripped labels from the various parts of the paper path. Brother should point this out as the great feature it is in their sales literature. The 11 x 17 scanner is a real bonus feature and will allow me to scan and copy drawings and other technical documents in that larger size. I am already scanning record album covers for inclusion in my digital music collection. This is a great feature. Installation was a bit lengthy and I did make an initial mistake, but Brother tech assistance was quite helpful and I now have it installed on four computers; 3 Windows 7 and an older, Windows XP system. That initial mistake was easily rectified by just running through the installation disk a second time and had I just known that, I would not have had to call Brother. I actually did so in an abundance of caution. I print a fair amount of color photos and I was concerned about the quality of photo prints. I tried some photos on plain paper and the results were disappointing. But then, they were similar to what my old printer produced on plain paper, perhaps just a bit lower in contrast. The Brother printer driver software does allow some very sophisticated adjustments to the photo quality and I did play with it a bit. But I then tried to use some photo type paper and the results were just excellent on the first try. The paper I used was not the Brother brand so I can only assume that the results will be as good or better with their, recommended paper. I have seen reviews of this printer that critiqued the noise level. I noticed in the set-ups that there is a quiet mode that you can select, but I did not as I wanted to see just how noisy it was. While it may not be the quietest printer that I have ever used, it is FAR from the noisiest. I would place it in the average category in this respect. I have mine installed at the left side of my desk, on a separate printer stand so it is about an arm's length away. I can reach the touch screen with my left hand without shifting my position. I find that the sound level is entirely satisfactory, in spite of this close proximity. I have to wonder if those critical reviews were perhaps written by employees of other printer companies. The black and white prints on standard paper are a little low in contrast. Not to the point of being unacceptable and I probably would not have noticed it if I did not have my older printer to compare them to. One suggestion for improvement would be to make the black ink a bit darker. Unless that would mess up the excellent photo printing capability. Another small disappointment is the speed of producing prints. After reading the specifications, I really expected faster operation. For plain, black text, in Normal mode, the first page takes about 20 seconds to start printing, but subsequent pages are somewhat faster, perhaps 15 seconds each. I am sure that the manufacturer developed standards for rating the speed of producing prints are written in their favor, but it would be better to do this spec. in a more realistic manner. Overall this is an excellent printer and a great value for the price. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in a printer of it's general capability.

The first printer lasted about 6 months until I powered it off one night. Wouldn't turn on again. Brother exchanged it for a refurbished machine. The 2nd machine worked for about two weeks when I had to turn it off and unplug it so I could move it. When I plugged it back in the display will come on and say "Shutting Down, all functions will be disabled". Will not power on now. Same as the first unit. I guess I'll have to buy an HP now.

Large Format, Lots of print options, faster print.

Comments about Brother MFC-J6720DW:

I copy a lot of music charts that are odd sizes and turn them into single page 11 x 17 folded copies. I have the options of several formats and the ability to reduce or enlarge to fit my needs. Printing speeds are great too. The new ink looks better and goes farther as well. This is my 2nd Brother printer and they only get better.

Lousy Printer

By Anonymous

from Wythe County, VA, United States

Comments about Brother MFC-J6720DW:

I purchased the J6720DW printer because it is a 11x17 scanner/copier/printer. I print a lot of color posters on hi quality, heavy stock. The printer is useless for me as it can only print 20-24lb copy paper in the 11x17 mode. I think it will take photo paper in the 8.5x11 size but the bigger size won't even feed. I guess I bought a real dud. First Brother printer I've had in years. Will be the last.

This post is to say thank you to the employees responsible for writing the user's manuals for the Brother-MFC-J6720DW. Not only did they tell me how to resolve issues with my installation of the Brother printer, they even anticipated and told me how to solve problems with my computer operating system and firewall software. Fantastic job on writing these manuals.
