Brother MFC-J680DW Printer Overview
The MFC-J680DW is the second model we’ve taken a gander at in Brother’s most recent scope of home and home office inkjet MFPs. It’s two or three indents up from the section level DCP-J562DW I investigated several months back, but then at the season of composing I discovered it offering at a similar cost. For that £85 or something like that, you get print, sweep, duplicate and shading fax capacities, with programmed duplex (twofold sided) printing and a 20-page programmed record feeder (ADF) for unattended multi-page duplicates, checks or faxes. This current MFP’s other key components incorporate support for remote, yet not wired systems administration, and control through an expansive shading touchscreen.
The MFC-J680DW may be new, however Brother’s inkjet MFPs remain unflinchingly square shaped when contrasted with their adversaries. Notwithstanding a somewhat littler size than the model it replaces, this MFP still looks more useful than in vogue, and it doesn’t ooze a demeanor of value: the paper plate, for instance, is clattery, and can be a fiddle to stack. I haven’t seen a manufacture quality issue on a Brother item some time recently, yet on our test one of the scanner cover’s broadening pivots was obstructed by the absence of slack in the link racing to the ADF.
There’s very little amiss with the touchscreen, luckily: while it may not be as smooth as a few, the menu framework it controls is, generally, instinctive. In like manner, Brother’s print interface is an awesome case of making propelled works simple to utilize, and its TWAIN check interface, while fundamental, is straightforward for the lion’s share of employments. While we’ve no grumblings about the product or its setup, you do need to be watchful while embeddings the shading ink cartridges – without physical scratching, it’s conceivable to place one into the wrong space.
This is an essentially speedier printer than the DCP-J562DW, especially on our shading tests. Printing illustrations, it dealt with a noteworthy 5.5 pages for every moment (ppm) – more than twofold the 2.5ppm of the less expensive MFP. At two minutes for each borderless postcard-sized photograph, it was around seven circumstances speedier when printing photographs. Its leverage was far littler on our dark content test, however the MFC-J680DW dealt with a tenable 12.0ppm, or 15.5ppm at draft quality.
Sibling claims indistinguishable sweep speeds for the two, and our tests bore this out: the MFC-J680DW saw an A4 page in 10 seconds, and could check it at 300dpi in 15 seconds. Catching a 6×4″ photograph at 1,200dpi took 53 seconds, which is very aggressive. A solitary mono photocopy finished in 17 seconds, while a similar occupation in shading took 22 seconds. Duplicating 10 mono pages took 151 seconds, while in shading this rose to 181 seconds.
This MFP for the most part delivers great outcomes. Printed content was dim dark, despite the fact that those with sharp eyes may detect a little spikes in the blueprint. Shading design were solid, yet drain was obvious on more slender papers – something to watch in case you’re duplexing. Sweeps were strongly engaged, and their hues for the most part precise, yet darker shades had a tendency to consolidate, with lost detail.
The MFC-J680DW takes Brother’s LC223 cartridges, with a limit of 550 pages each. Utilizing these print costs work out at around 7p for every page – aggressive, if unexceptional, much like the MFC-J680DW itself.
