Great Reliable Small Office Printer

By fern g

I was looking for a reasonably priced printer with a low cost of ownership. I have had the MFC-J985DW for about a month and satisfied thus far. My duty cycle is relatively low (not a lot of copies), but when I need them printed, I really need them! So far, very reliable.


Same great features as the MFC-J985DW but also includes 12 ink cartridges


Love everything about it!

By Elgie

The price, the features, the easy setup and use, the photo and text end results, the 2 years of ink - what's not to love?
