Brother MFC-J6957DW review | TechRadar

The X Series is Brother’s premium line of small business inkjet printers (opens in new tab) aimed squarely at the office and the Brother MFC-J6957DW (opens in new tab) is its flagship. It’s the highest-specified business inkjet we’ve cone across and certainly the fastest. With a print speed of 30ppm, it’s quicker than many laser printers which usually fill the role in a busy office for which this inkjet has been designed. 

There are several things an inkjet like this can do better. For a start, it can not only print on A3/tabloid paper, but copy at that size too. A laser that can do this would have to be much larger and of course, it wouldn’t be able to print on coated photo paper.

This top-end four-in-one has room on board for every feature you can think of. There are three separate paper trays with room for 750 sheets of paper and the opportunity to upgrade. There’s an ADF, large touchscreen interface, NFC for secure print jobs and a fax (opens in new tab) facility. Of course the catch with inkjets is the cost of their cartridges, which are always lower-capacity than toner cartridges, but even this distinction is blurred by the unusually large inkjet carts used here.

With a claimed yield of 6,000 black and 5,000 color prints, Brother’s high-capacity cartridges are more economical than many lasers. At around £670 (about US$810, AU$1,189) it’s roughly the same cost as an equivalent laser, so let’s figure out which is best.
