Excellent Tabloid-Size (11″ x 17″) Printing from Brother’s MFC-J5330DW

Review of the Brother MFC-J5330DW AIO printer at PCMag

  • PROS

    Competitively fast. Good overall print quality. Prints tabloid-size pages. Multiple connectivity options. Strong software bundle.

  • CONS

    Less-than-stellar graphics. Cost per page could be lower. Non-duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF).


    The business-oriented Brother MFC-J5330DW is a capable wide-format, low-volume color inkjet all-in-one printer. It’s relatively fast, and it prints fairly well overall, albeit with some flawed business graphics.

Some other tabloid-size AIOs, such as the Brother MFC-J6930DW [amazon_link asins=’B01LWNQ8NG’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’1e7a0174-c37d-11e7-b3f6-e9d325057e96′] and the Editors’ Choice HP OfficeJet Pro 7740, [amazon_link asins=’B01JUCLLGK’ template=’CopyOf-PriceLink’ store=’store-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’35a9ad55-c37d-11e7-b0c4-7d5338b9aab4′] not only print at tabloid size, but they also copy, scan, and fax those pages. In addition, where the HP 7740 and the Brother MFC-J6930DW come with auto-duplexing automatic document feeders (ADFs) for sending two-sided, multipage documents to the scanner without assistance, the MFC-J5330DW does not. Even so, the MFC-J5330DW prints well overall and is reasonably fast, and has a strong set of features and software, making it a solid choice for low-volume business printing in a home-based or small office or workgroup. It would also make a good personal AIO if you have the space for it.
