A Brief Review of the Brother MFC-J825DW
Posted by Ink Oasis on 1/29/2012 to Printer Reviews
Even though many people are moving away from inkjet printers, the Brother MFC-J825DW is still fairly popular with students and individuals that need a wide range of computer peripherals in a home office setting.  As with other Brother products, consumers tend to feel that these devices are less durable than those created by other manufacturers. However, the ability to purchase a Brother printer and ink cartridges in just about any store tends to be appealing.

Brother MFC-J825DW —Features

·    Scanner. Easily digitize old photos, files, and other information for permanent digital storage.
·    Fax machine. When you need to send paper documents fast, there are few things as easy and reliable as a home based fax machine.
·    Print direct from memory cards. If you want to print from camera memory sticks or other flash media, you will find it very easy with the Brother MFC-J825DW.
·    Print from cell phone after installing free app. Never worry about losing an important picture when you can send it straight from your cell phone to the printer.

What Users like about the product

·    Easy to setup
·    Can print directly onto printable CD and DVD Discs

Craig F. – Over the years, I've dealt with a lot of HP, Cannon, and Lexmark printers. I must say that the Brother MFC-J825DW was the easiest to setup. Not only did the printer work perfectly, I also had no problems with the fax and scanner. 

Gretta L. – Over the holidays, I wanted to create a bunch of CDs with images for the family. Was I ever surprised when I found out the Brother MFC-J825DW could print right on the CD. Definitely an unexpected but pleasant bonus.

What Users Don't Like about the product

·    Does not last very long
·    Poor quality printing

Tara M. – They used to joke about hard drives that didn't last more than two minutes when I went to college. I was vividly reminded of that when this printer completely died after I had only printed three pages.

Kevin T. – I thought the test pages looked pretty messy, and could never get this printer to work properly.  The Brother MFC-J825DW is useless if you want to produce anything remotely readable.


For the most part, we feel the Brother MFC-J825DW is a good choice for small and medium sized businesses that need to occasionally print and make copies in color. That said, if you want an affordable multi-function color printer, some of its other features may have some appeal to you.
