With a little larger design and beefier office features, the Brother MFC-J5520DW all-in-one inkjet printer is still tailored for home office users. It has a very affordable price, especially considering its wealth of features and ISO speeds of around 22 pages per minute. It also benefits greatly from inexpensive Brother MFC-J5520DW printer ink, available in two capacities for light or heavy use.
With copy, fax, scan, and print functionality, the MFC-J5520 is ready for just about anything a home office user can throw at it. It includes a 35-sheet automatic document feeder for quicker scanning, and even includes OCR software for turning scans into editable text or PDF documents. With a bit larger touchscreen than previous models, the 3.7-inch screen makes it easier to use in walk-up mode as well. The small paper capacity of 250 sheets could be a concern for some buyers, however.
Not only does the MFC-J5520DW include wireless support for easier setup and sharing, but it supports cloud storage of scanned documents, integrating with Dropbox, Evernote, and other services. It also supports mobile printing with Google Cloud Print and AirPrint, and Brother's iPrint&Scan can help users save scanned pages to their mobile device to easily take them along for the ride.
Printer ink prices are quite affordable, and with four Brother MFC-J5520DW ink cartridges to replace, this is a real blessing. Standard Brother MFC-J5520DW ink cartridges can output around 550 pages, while the high-capacity versions boost the output to 1,200 pages. This is the better option for those who plan to go through a lot of Brother MFC-J5520DW ink.
The MFC-J5520DW inkjet model is a great option for the home office or small office environment where serious business features are needed but a larger laser model might be too expensive. Its speed and feature set are appealing, but a small paper capacity might be a detriment for some buyers.
