Easy to Set Up

Utilize the power of your wireless network while reducing the number of cables in your home office. Wireless networking enables others to share the Multi-Function Center on the network. The SOHO Series Multi-Function Center Machines are Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n certified and are compatible with new routers with ‘n’ technology, allowing for faster data transfer between your PC and printer router. These models are still compatible with older routers that offer b/g technology.

Convenient Web and Mobile Device Compatibility

The MFC-J825DW supports wireless printing from your mobile device via AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, iPrint&Scan and Cortado Workplace. Brother Web Connect enables you to upload and download files to specific web services without using a computer.

Mobile printing will allow you to print from your mobile device on the go.10.

CD/DVD/Blu-ray Disc Printing

Customize and print professional looking discs. Your Brother machine can print directly on printable disc media, including CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and Blu-ray Disc. There are three ways to print on printable disc media:

Print by copying: You can copy the image of an existing disc label or a square document (such as a photo) and print the image on a printable disc. Print from media: You can select an image stored in a memory card or USB Flash memory drive, and print the image on a printable disc. Print from a computer (Windows / Mac): Brother offers an easy-to-use application for printing directly on printable disc media. The NewSoft CD Labeler application offers templates for creating disc labels along with matching jacket covers, or you can create your own custom disc labels. MFC-J825DWFour-cartridge ink system

Lower-Cost Printing

Help reduce your printing costs with high yield LC Series Ink Cartridges. All Brother Inkjet Multi-Function Center machines are equipped with a four-cartridge ink system. This means you only have to change the specific color cartridge that needs to be replaced, instead of having to discard an entire set of ink cartridges. This helps to reduce waste and save you money.

Plus, the MFC-J425W’s “N in 1” printing and copying option allows you to print several pages onto one, and Ink Save Mode is used when printing draft documents.

    Buy it, buy it, buy it! I’ve worked in technology for over 36 years. I’m picky as hell. I’ve been looking for a new all-in-one (AIO) printer for a while. I’ve tried Epson, Canon, Lexmark. I never tried Brother. I saw this printer in OfficeMax where it was on sale before Amazon for $99 and picked it up. The quality and the price of the inks looked great, the features were killer, and I needed the scanner because I often scan documents and photos, as well as use DocsVault to have a paperless office. I figured I would return it if I didn’t like it. No harm, no foul.Man, was I surprised. The quality of the construction is terrific. It has a small footprint and low noise. The paper tray combines holding the paper and providing the output tray. It also will store a stack of 4×6 photo paper ready to go. All you have to do is push a lever to move the photo paper into position. The tray will extend as well for legal size paper. The paper stops on the output tray and the fax tray are a little flimsy, but I…

    Good, but a few details … Generally speaking, this printer so far is VERY GOOD for the price. It does what it says, and it is very USER-FRIENDLY.My two complaints are the following:(1) My previous printer (a 2005 HP) printed with the same resolution in “normal” and “fast print/draft”, the only difference being the quality of the ink’s hue or depth (and, of course, the speed). That is, the 2005 HP Printer printed a lighter-colored draft document, but very quickly. THIS PRINTER in fast/draft mode also prints quickly in a lighter shade (which is fine). HOWEVER, in doing so, the resolution/form of the characters is compromised. Remember the old printers from the 90’s where a curved letter visibly showed the small blocks that formed it? How they looked like letters shaped out of Lego(TM) blocks? Well, unfortunately, in 2012, that’s what Brother delivers in its fast/draft mode. The only way to save ink is to use the “ink save” function within a particular mode, in which case it prints…

    Best value printer out! I did some research for a couple days and ended up purchasing this printer. I’ve never owned a Brother printer since i guess the name is kinda silly. Don’t let the name fool you this is an excellent printer. For $100 you simply cannot beat it. The setup is easy and the unit seems to be well built. It has scan, copy, fax, dial pad, etc. as rubber buttons on the front face. All the menu options are on a touchscreen LCD. The touchscreen can be touchy during the initial setup phase but you get used to it. It even has a feature which allows you to copy and reprint CD artwork onto burnable CDs…now thats cool!The unit prints fast and has good picture quality. The scanner was way beyond my expectations and reproduces photos extremely well. Its almost like you took the picture directly off your camera. It also is able to print duplex prints and does so very fast. If you need anything more out of a printer then this then you’d be running a large business of some sort…
