Brother MFC-J5910DW
 all-in-one

RH Numbers

Brother makes a substantial range of SOHO A3 all-in-ones, with this machine sitting at the lower end of the range. It's similar to some of the company’s A4 alternatives, but with a wider carriage – its scanner is only A4, so it can't scan or copy anything larger. However, it can handle duplex print and offers full fax iPhone and Android wireless print. It prints at up to 10.4ppm and can produce a five-page A3 print in 2mins 13s. Print costs, at 1.1p and 4.6p for ISO black and colour pages are very good, but plain paper print quality lets it down, with a degree of fuzziness and jaggies.

Brother MFC-J6510DW all-in-one


RH Numbers

This machine is a step up from the MFC-J5910DW, as it offers an A3 scanner as well as a wide carriage printhead. Like the cheaper machine, it offers photo card and PictBridge sockets and this one has Brother's trademark wide-aspect LCD display, too. Both machines have the advantage of a wireless connection, and this one has Ethernet as well as USB. It prints at up to 9.1ppm and can produce a 15 x 10cm photo in 1:10. An A3 photo print took 3mins 38s, which is also very reasonable. Page costs are good at 1.1p for ISO black and 4.8p colour. Unfortunately, again, the print quality lets the machine down, producing plain paper prints which looks fuzzy and imprecise.
