Compare with others
It’s nice having a printer that works the way you want it to. After using a Brother L2340D laser and having no issues we needed to replace our old HP Officejet K8600TN.
We have a mixed OS environment and seemed like we were having to often transfer projects to a PC to get it to print correctly on the HP 8600. It’s old and a tank but we always had issues that would infuriate the most docile individual.
The menus on the Brother are responsive on the touch screen color display. Setup was a breeze on all devices. The built in scan to OCR is nice and fast. The unit wakes instantly, no sluggishness at all. Was impressed they had Win10 64 bit drivers right away.
This unit was just released so that makes sense I suppose. I use the Google Cloud print a good bit from my Android phone and its great.
The NFC function basically just starts the Brother iPrint app or sends you to a link to download if tapped. I like the WiFi feature better though for mobile devices. Scanning to your phone is really nice for something you need quickly on the go. Also one thing I noticed that I don’t see often on Inkjet printers is when canceling a print job the Brother J880DW cancels it immediately without fuss. I’m use to HPs and others grinding for 2 minutes or even having to unplug power to get them reset.
The only thing some people may have trouble with is the 4×6 photo paper tray. You have to slide it back when you want to print on this size manually and then back for 8.5×11. It’s kinda cool you can keep it loaded with this size paper ready to go though.
This printer seems to do photos way better than I thought it would for the price. The 880 and 885 are the same except the 880 has a fax built in. If you do not need a fax then the 885 may be for you. I purchased this unit before it was apparently released or in stock at Amazon because it was a replacement for the renowned 870.
Easy setup, supports everything you would want and for the price does better than expected picture quality. Drivers seem equally featured on all operating systems. Compact. Lots of scan to functions from the touch screen. Cheaper priced ink cartridges than some others. People like my dad would appreciate the full printed manual included with the printer to hold in hand as he watches TV and “studies up”. Most are on PDFs on the disk included.
Being very critical, as there is not much not to like about this model.
Possible confusion on the 4×6 push back tray for some that don’t read instructions. Small paper tray. Print cartridges look small. I just received the 880 and time will tell how long they last and if the cheaper price to yeild ratio compared to larger cartridges of other models.
