BROTHER MFCJ6520DW Wireless A3 All-in-One Inkjet Printer

Triple checked this price / deal prior to posting, purchased 2 in store and online [yesterday] for click and collect to ensure that the model priced was the model sold. Bought these for business / heavy duty use in Dec & again in Jan, so super happy to get some more and share this stupid price.

This is without doubt, currently the best Native A3 [by that I mean designed for A3 printing] inkjet on the market. 6000dpi X 1200dpi, Apple Airprint, Google Cloud Print and much more!

Have used one with Replacement Brother XXL cart [2400 pages] used with Ciss [continuious ink system] and also with cheapo crap compatible inks.. ALL have worked off the bat with this printing beast, with no issues.

It has automatic ADF feeder top which means you can stuff tons of documents, photos, plans etc etc and scan / copy / fax until you are blue in the face, all without actually touching it more than once!

Print speed is super-mega-quick-fast on A3/A4/A5 & all the other sizes you can cram into the trays, have not had 1 as in ONE single paper jam on any size and have printed over 13,000 pages on one.

You can get 4 sets of 4 carts on Ye-Olde-Bay for £18, if you like ink carts cheap, they work, look the same and used with Xerox paper, print brilliant.

The printer is a lot lower in height than most A3 printers, yet this one has full duplex [automatic] built in, print from anything anywhere device options, super easy/super fast wifi and remote printing and locking with codes!!!!

Anyway, afawk, this is a better deal than the HP laptop deal we purchased last year, which was completely stripped from the shelves by hukd members, who really knew a bargain ;-)

TCB / QCo as the norm, would suggest if you are in the market for an inkjet printer that can do everything, other than cook pizza, this is it guys and gals..

Click & Collect is best option, if the website twigs with the influx and moves to "Home Delivery" as it normally will with Currys, suggest you get down to your local store and buy one / some.

I think "best A3 inkjet" is somewhat gilding the lily, but would definitely agree that it is the best value A3 inkjet by a mile and probably the only one for home users to consider. I bought mine last year as my daughter had to complete her GCSE Project and the schools A3 printers were all u/s!!!

Not really needed to use the A3 facilities since (until 2 days ago when other daughter had a project to complete - guess what - schools A3 printers u/s again!!!)

I do recall that there were limitations with certain combinations of edge to edge, high quality and duplex. Other than that I think it is a good printer. It feels a bit flimsy, but I have no cause to complain. I would certainly recommend for anyone needing A3 printing on a budget. Nothing else comes close. BTW paid £119 from memory, at PCW.

Should be HOT.

I used to have the A4 equivalent and 'upgraded' to an Epson. The Brother wasn't quite as sharp but much quicker, accepted inks better,more flexible (could scan straight to PDF with an SD card with no PC attached. Hot.

If only we knew Jacky!

The JL stock price match from yesterday for 2 hours worth of sales, has already moved their delivery of new stock to 3-4 weeks delivery, by which time the price at currys will have changed, so unless you buy it from JL, wait and then price match, bit of a waste of energy!

To clarify, this has now been scrapped and posted elsewhere [which is the now the norm for other not so pro active deal finding sites!] on T'Intaweb...

Curry's click & collect [according to my googoogadgetz] is now not available in 35 locations [as predicted] from stock at this price, they were yesterday!!

Stand by this is the best "Native" A3 inkjet on the market and as mentioned by other members, the best "Value" as well, anyone thinking about getting an A4 for a similar cost / other brand, other than some of the Epson wf range [which only become comparable at this price with the massive £60 cashback] deals at the mo, just buy one of these, you will not regret it and will also be able to do a lot more for less!

Double sided A3 + A4 brochures / newsletters / booklets / presentations with no intervention or paper switching.

Here is a run down of tech features... so those voting cold can post a better Native A3 printer for less money with same or similar features...

The scan hardcopy/letter/document to MS Office / Any software and my fav Email to anyone from the printer are brilliant, it also has the FULL A3 scanning from the ADF on top, so you can scan big stuff to save or print or fax directly from the printer, with no pc needed!

Do not let the coldness in the thread put you off buying one, this is stupid cheap for the spec!

Saw this in PC World last week and thought that's a bargain for A3, then I saw the last pack of £2.97 A3 paper and instead of jumping (which I am guilty of) I read the reviews online both from youtube and review sites. I decided against it as it's colour reproduction lets it down (based on average reviews) I know it's not a dedicated A3 photo printer but if you are after A3 scanning capabilities and A3 prints where you don't need the best quality it's a good buy. I would still get it from JL just for the standard 2yr guarantee and great CS though.

I thought they meant "utter ****" at first but it didn't fit the second tense for the use of it so....:S

Cheers for the input Barso, appreciate it..

Using Xerox plain / xerox performer [my fav paper!] and xerox photo, up against hp/epson/canon A3 prints|posters|photos, have not had anyone notice any difference in print dpi / sheen on paper or colour repro, printing 300dpi+ designs and / or high res 24-38mpx images, since been using this model Brother.

Up against the hp/canon/epson's we have here and there, this absolutely flys and seems to be using far less ink on short print runs and a hell of a lot less on bigger runs!

Got a couple of new Ciss inks coming next week from El-Cheap-China, so will do a comparison of an A3 poster print V the other ones we have kicking around in use to see if is as good as our £2k A3 canon large format printer!

I take it from the way you describe things you must work in a printshop of some sort ?

You mentioning Xerox takes me back a few years to when I worked in a printshop, my daily duties included running a Xerox Docucolor 2045 and a Docutech. The Docucolor was fussy about paper used so it was always Xerox SRA3 in various weights, I also loved the A3 scanner and have always thought about an A3 all in one because A3 looks so much better than A4......then I saw how much they cost, until I saw this Brother.
I think I will give the reviews a second read.......

*Have had a read through various replacement carts/CISS systems on the net and watched a couple of yt vids on CISS but must admit I wouldn't know what to go for, any recommendations ?

Epson cashback ended 31st March

make it wireless with a Raspberry Pi,
I have with my Epson R220, works a treat

I still have an all in one wireless Epson I bought 4 years ago for £60. ink cartridges cost me £2.99 a set on eBay and last about 4 months with a few prints a week. as long as you print regularly you shouldn't have much of a problem with clogged heads. maybe I am just lucky with my Epson but it never let me down even with 3rd party ink.

Just received one of these for £47 from ebay, everything seems ok...ish for the price so far. A3 scanning is a hit and miss affair unless you are scanning bold colours, print outs are adequate for what I want it for.

Expired again ? This is still £125 in Currys as per title.
