The Brother MFC-J285DW all-in-one inkjet printer includes a modern, full-color 1.8-inch touchscreen display, and its price is lower than one might expect. As a result, it does sacrifice a few features, such as an automatic document feeder, but its print speeds are fast, and Brother MFC-J285DW printer ink is very affordable to replace.
Given its small design, it's almost surprising that the MFC-J285DW can handle the full set of printing, copying, scanning, and faxing functions. It measures only 6.3 inches tall with a footprint of 16.1x14.7 inches. It is also easy to set up, at a weight of just over 20 pounds that includes the Brother MFC-J285DW printer ink. The input paper tray is a bit small, however, holding only 100 sheets.
Not only does the MFC-J285DW support Wi-Fi connections and automatic duplexing (as opposed to the MFC-J285 base model) but it supports several web-connected features for added convenience. The Web Connect feature on the touchscreen can help users print their Facebook or Picasa photos without the need for a computer, for example. AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support, along with the Brother iPrint&Scan app, can provide easy printing and scanning to and from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
The device uses separate cyan, magenta, yellow, and black Brother MFC-J285DW ink cartridges, so users can replace only the color that is empty. Brother MFC-J285DW ink cartridges come in standard and high-capacity versions, with the larger supplies offering up to 600 pages each.
Buyers with mobile devices or those who use a lot of web services will love the included tools of the Brother MFC-J285DW inkjet printer. Even without these features, however, it is still an excellent choice for home use, and its low price makes it a great value.
