Brother MFC-J6910DW all-in-one

RH Numbers

One step up again and this wide carriage all-in-one has everything the Brother MFC-J6510DW has, with a couple of refinements to justify the higher price. Perhaps the most valuable is a duplex scanner, so you can scan and copy duplex documents up to A3, in a single job. Its wide-aspect LCD display is a touchscreen and it has twin, 250-sheet paper trays, so you can load A3 and A4 paper simultaneously. Top speed is 10ppm and a 10-page A4 duplex copy took 4:03. Print costs are the same as for the MFC-J6510DW, as it uses the same cartridges, but again it's the overall print quality which prevents a recommendation.

RH Editor's Choice

The only other major manufacturer to offer an A3+ all-in-one is HP. This machine, like Brother’s MFC-J5910DW, is a halfway house, with an A3 print engine but only an A4 scanner. It's a lot better looking than the Brother machine, and incorporates a full touchscreen control panel. It also includes card readers and wireless connection and adds in HP's ePrint Internet printing. It doesn't offer duplex print, though its normal print speed of 9.0ppm is some compensation. It can also produce a 15 x 10cm photo in 40s and an A3 photo in 3mins 30s. Print quality is much better than Brother’s and running costs, at 1.6p ISO black and 5.8p colour, make it cost-effective. ®
