Expert Reviews

Brother MFC-665CW Reviews

PCWorld reviews the Brother MFC-665CW and writes;
“The scan and print quality of documents is very good. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software is supplied, too, and allows you to easily convert text from scanned documents (our tests showed it to be 100 per cent accurate when deciphering printed text). A typical five-page Word document will print over an 802.11g network in 2min 1sec using the printer’s ‘normal’ print quality settings though this is slow when compared to other units like the Canon MP600R.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Macworld reviews the Brother MFC-665CW and writes;
“the printed output looked good–and that was exactly the rating our panel of Macworld editors gave the MFC-665CW for its graphics test page, Photoshop document, and copier test page. It earned a Very Good rating in our Word text test for its clean legible text, even at very small point sizes. Scanning times were impressive, however, and though our panel rated the resulting scans as Good, it preferred the high resolution graphics scans from other inkjet MFPs, such as the HP Photosmart C7180 and the Canon Pixma MP960.”

Brother MFC-665CW User Reviews

Great aio printer for home use with many advanced features
“I was looking for a wireless printer for my laptop that would stand in a convenient location and I wouldn’t have to carry it with me around the house, wherever I use my laptop. This printer is also network ready. It comes with a pc fax program. The quality is great, the setup was relatively easy and it came with clear instructions. The cartridges are a bit expensive, but it comes with the first initial four. Overall, I’m very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this AIO printer for a home use. “ – by Bina Zarkhin

Great features for a great price
“It is easy to set up and use, it prints and copies well, it has a handset and a message center, it faxes fine for home use, and it’s also a scanner. It’s also got wired or wireless networking, which is extremely simple to use, and it’s got features like PC Fax, and many options(although I haven’t tried them). As long as you don’t need a super-powered printer, but want networking with these functions, the 665-cw can’t be beat.” – by Gaa Moo

Great buy
“This has proven to be a great all around device. I find myself printing on this rather than my laserjet. It prints decently but I haven’t really checked it out in demanding tasks. I like being able to copy and fax and scan from one place. And after using it on a wireless network, any other device I buy will have to be wireless. The setup took a little time but the instructions were understandable. So a great buy.” – by G. Lester

Great for the price
“The print quality is really good, even for photos. There’s only one problem that can be either big or small. It all depends on how much you print over the wireless connection. When the printer is connected to your computer via a USB cable or the printer is connected through an Ethernet cable, it is fast… All in all, I’m happy with the printer and its other functions (fax, scanner) and taking into consideration what I’ve mentioned, I would recommend it. And don’t forget that you will save money in the long run by buying individual color cartridges.” – by Jailoliv

Excellent all-around AIO printer with Wireless
“I have owned many, many, many printers. I was using a Kodak AIO model before switching to this one. I have this setup to print both to the pc via USB connection and wireless for the laptop users in the home. If you are going to setup to use with laptop to print wirelessly, guide will not be able to assist you if you are using a third-party firewall (meaning one that isn’t the Windows one from Microsoft). I am surprisingly pleased with this one! Pros outweigh cons at time of this writing. I recommend highly based on current, overall experience. Pros: Individual ink cartridges, Photos tested print reasonably well so far, Photos come out dry to the touch, Documents print well” – by ILoveGadgets

Near Perfect
“We’ve had this printer since March of 07. Works very, very well and is very easy to use. We use the answering system and the fax machine the most. The few pictures we’ve printed have been fine. Our main reason for buying this printer was the fax and copy ability.” – by research_b4_I_buy

great printer, nice quality
“This printer does everything advertised well. The wireless feature works very well and not slow at all, I had expected more of a delay. Also the setup is easy, software works well. I saw negative reviews on the recent HP models, and the HP models also felt cheap when I looked at them. This one feels a little more sturdy. I did find this on the Home Shopping Network site fir $129 including shipping, although they quickly sold out. Even at the $180 price, I think it is a good value.” – by Muskie2

Excellent product for home use
“Excellent product for home use and casual printing (it is somewhat on the slow side). Uses ink fast, but a set of compatible cartridges costs only $10 on ebay. Make sure you download latest version of software from the Brother web side and update the firmware. Otherwise no hassle except for occasional paper jams.” – by Jose Escriva y Velcro
