The Brother MFC-J6935DW colour inkjet all-in-one printer is one of the few home-office inkjets that can print, copy, scan, and fax tabloid-size (11×17 inches) sheets. The MFC-J6935DW has more paper capacity and has lower running costs than it’s rivals.
The MFC-J6935DW is quite similar to the Brother MFC-J6930DW, but it has the PCL5 printer language and a low-paper warning. Most importantly, it supports the use of Brother’s INKvestment cartridges, when the Brother MFC-J6930DW doesn’t, making the latter printer have considerably higher running costs. Also, the J6935DW’s graphics quality is a little better than the MFC-J6930DW.
The MFC-J6935DW is big and heavy for an inkjet. This dual-tone white and grey printer measures 14.7 x 22.6 x 18.8 inches (HWD) and weighs about 51.8 pounds, and occupies a lot of space and at least two people will be able to move it into place. Paper capacity is about 600 sheets, divided between two 250-sheet trays and the 100-sheet multipurpose feeder. Both the tray and feeder support printing of up to tabloid size. It comes with an auto-duplexer for printing on both the sides of a sheet of paper. It can automatically print two-sided documents up to 11 x 17 inches.
The MFC-J6935DW comes with a tabloid-size flatbed and has a 50-sheet ADF that is compatible with dual-sided scan, copy and fax of the documents till the tabloid size. The tilt-up front panel has a 3.7 inch colour touch-screen display and a number keypad. In the lower left, there is one port for one USB thumb drive.
A set of connectivity options is one of the strengths of the MFC-J6935DW. It can connect to a PC through a USB cable, or to any local-area network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. It also connects through a direct peer-to-peer connection to a compatible mobile device through Wi-Fi Direct, and supports NFC (Near Field Communication).
The MFC-J6935DW is compatible with Google Cloud Print, and Brother iPrint&Scan app, and is both supports the AirPrint- and Mopria for printing from iOS and Android devices. Through Brother Web Connect, one can scan and upload images to sites like the Brother Cloud Apps, Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Flickr, OneNote, Picasa Web Albums, Google Docs and Sharepoint Online.
The output quality is a positive point for the MFC-J5935DW, with excellent text for an inkjet, good graphics, and average photos. Text is quite good enough for all business purpose but for ones needing very small fonts.
