Brother MFC-J6710DW All-in-One Printer Review

Page: 1 of 6

If you need a heavy-duty printer, Brother has one they would like you to consider. The MFC-J6710DW is made to appeal to anyone who does a lot of printing and needs to work with large documents. It is a large, do-it-all printer which can print, scan, copy, and fax paper up to A3 (i.e., 11 x 17 inches or 297 x 420 mm). We decided to take a look to see just how well it performed these tasks.

The Brother MFC-J710DW has a long name and makes a big impression. As shown in Figure 1, it comes in a really large box: be sure to get in shape before you lift it, the printer in the shipping box weighs in at almost 54 lbs (24.5 kg).

This printer is well-packed, as shown in Figure 2. As expected from the size of the box, the printer itself is quite large, measuring 21.3 x 19.3 x 13 inches (541 x 490 x 330 mm) and weighing 40.1 lbs (18.2 kg).

The contents of the box, shown in Figure 3, include a Start Here Guide, a User’s Guide, a software CD, a documentation CD, a telephone cable, and four ink cartridges in black, cyan, yellow, and magenta. These are listed as “starter” cartridges, but no indication is given as to how many pages they will print.

The printer itself is shown in Figure 4. The control panel area which runs across the front of the machine has faint lines of glossy black alternated with matte lines of black. The cover on the top of the printer which opens to reveal the automatic document feeder is shiny black plastic and the LCD screen and its surround are also of shiny black material. The rest of the printer is of heavy-duty matte black material.
