Brother MFC-J6710DW All-in-One Printer Review

The Hardware

One of the reasons that this printer is so large is that it supports paper up to 11 x 17 inches (A3) in printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. As you can see in Figure 8, the scanning area is huge, measuring slightly larger than 12 x 17 inches. The back of the cover is hinged, allowing you to easily scan or copy from books and other thick material.

The J6710 has two paper trays which are shown in Figure 9. Each holds 250 sheets up to A3 in size.

There is also a manual feed slot that is inconveniently located on the back of the machine, as shown in Figure 10. This can be used for envelopes and thicker media since it offers a straight-through paper path.

Most of the functionality of this printer is controlled by front panel, shown in Figure 11. On the far left is the on/off button. Next to that is a numeric keypad that controls the telephone keys. With the addition of the nearby “shift” key it has 16 numbers, which gives you access to 16 stored numbers. Below that are keys that control a variety of things. From left to right, they are Duplex Copy, N in 1 Copy (to make poster copies), Fax Preview, Hook (for faxing), Redial/Pause, Paper Setting, and Tray Setting. Although some of these keys like the paper and tray settings are extremely useful, the entire array of keys that are used for different function, but are mixed together, can be ultimately confusing.

Next to these keys are the Mode Keys which include Fax, Scan, Copy, and Photo Capture. In the middle of this panel is a 3.3” widescreen color LCD that can be used navigate menus and preview faxes. The screen tilts to accommodate different viewing angles.

To the left of the screen are the Navigation keys which include Volume, Phone Book, Menu, and Clear. Next to that is a Dial Pad used to dial telephone numbers and as a keyboard for entering information into the machine. At the far right are the Stop/Exit key, the Black Start, and the Color Start keys.

The LCD screen also gives you visual status information. As shown in Figure 12, it shows whether the fax preview is on or off, how many faxes are in memory, the wireless status, the current receive mode for the fax, the memory status, and an ink indicator.
