Brother MFC-J5520DW Overview
The MFC-J5520DW is instead plain-looking, a rectangle-shaped black dice with a silver accent red stripe on the front panel. The car file feeder (ADF) is recessed right into the leading panel and also unfolds when needed, as well as the whole leading panel lifts up to subject the scan platen. The ADF has a 35-sheet capacity.
This printer doesn’t seem particularly portable, at 19.3 × 13.6 × 9.4 inches with the outcome tray withdrawed, and also evaluating 25.5 extra pounds. That is, up until you think about that the MFC-J55420DW is capable of printing on A3/ledger dimension paper– the jumbo, 11 × 17 inch things. This dimension paper can be fed by means of a rear multipurpose input tray that folds out from the rear panel with an 80-sheet ability, or from the MFP’s unusual paper tray on the unit’s front bottom.
To the left of the output port, a little hinged door covers outlets for media cards including SD and also Compact Flash and also a USB plug for a thumb drive. On the ideal side of the result port is a swing-away panel that covers the slots where the ink cartridges are mounted. The conventional ink cartridges publish around 550 web pages (black and also shade), while high return cartridges are additionally offered, producing as much as 2,500 web pages in black as well as 1,200 web pages in shade. The basic ability cartridges set you back regarding $13 for the color and also $20 for the black, while the Super High Yield cartridges set you back about $25 for shade and also $40 for the black cartridge.
Similar to a lot of the MFPs as well as printers we have actually evaluated, there isn’t really a great deal in the box. There’s the device itself with a connected power cable, four starter ink cartridges, as well as a CD with print as well as check vehicle drivers for Windows and the Mac OS X, as well as a duplicate of PaperPort 12SE. Brother offers both a configuration poster and an extra in-depth 82-page user’s guide. The overview covers the MFC-J5520DW as well as two extra versions, yet you will not locate it challenging or complicated to determine exactly what does as well as does not apply to your version
Setting up the MFC-J5520DW was, generally, quick and very easy. We did experience 2 minor aggravations, nevertheless. The first is that you could install just the print vehicle driver, yet if you want the scanner driver, you need to do a complete mount that consists of PaperPort. The PC we use for testing has all supplier software application and also motorists cleaned after each evaluation, yet we do have a newer version of PaperPort (v14) installed on a number of various other computers; a total install would certainly have overwritten v14 with an older variation.
Our second issue is the odd means Sibling makes you course cabling. The jacks for all of the links– USB, Ethernet, and phone (for the fax)– are inner, needing that you lift the hinged top half of the tool to put the wire then path the wire through a shaped channel. This is uncomfortable, to say the least, and set you back the MFC-J5520DW points in our rating.
Besides these points, our mount went well. When you eliminate the strapping tape as well as install the starter ink cartridges, you need to wait several mins for the printer to prime the ink, after which you could proceed to attach the tool via USB, wired Ethernet, or Wi-Fi. The MFC-J5520DW uses WPS for Wi-Fi configuration, which is a blast saver. If your router supports this connection
approach, you can be up and also linked in under a minute. Additionally used are Wi-Fi Direct, so you can connect straight to a Wi-Fi allowed gadget, as well as compatibility with Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Publish, and also Brother’s very own iPrint & Scan.
Sibling ranks the MFC-J5520 as publishing up to 20 pages-per-minute in black and 20 ppm in shade with default driver settings. In our testing with the ISO Word record collection (4 monochrome pages with a tiny shade logo design on each page) we didn’t obtain near that outcome, with an ordinary rate of 16.5 ppm. That’s still tolerable, nevertheless.
Image high quality, as with lots of inkjet printers, depends on exactly what paper you make use of. With typical copy paper and even Hammermill Premium Inkjet and Laser paper, colors were somewhat washed out and undersaturated. That prevails in our testing, as the ink wicks down into the surface area of the paper. When publishing our test photos using the BP71 Costs Shiny Picture Paper that Bro offered, pictures were bright, brilliant, and precise.
Copying was rather slow-moving, which is to be expected with an inkjet given its moderate outcome speed. Toss in that, because the ADF doesn’t duplex, to copy two-sided documents you’ll have to transform the duplicates over (in addition to the result) to check as well as publish the second side. That gets old very fast. We additionally examined scanning, which is a snap. You could scan within PaperPort or conversely to the Cloud or email.
