Brother MFC-J5330DW Review

This four-in-one MFP flaunts a profound 250-page A4 paper plate, a quick 22 ppm agitate rate and duplex printing, with great yield quality inside a sensible spending plan. Add the capacity to print A3 paper and you have a conceivably basic office printer.

You may well believe that this resembles a common, if rather ungraceful, A4-proficient multifunction printer – yet you'd not be right. Shockingly, this MFP can likewise deal with A3 paper, though for printing as it were.

Because of its profound 250-page limit paper plate, quick duplex (two-sided) print speeds, the consideration of a fax office and a 50-page ADF (programmed report feeder), we can see that the Brother MFC-J5330DW is gone for the bustling little to medium business client. That implies you won't discover buyer amicable highlights like a SD vard opening or NFC for attaching a cell phone, however this machine offers Ethernet and Wi-Fi availability alongside the typical square USB port.

The J5330DW is a well-indicated inkjet with a genuinely high print goals of 4,800 x 1,200 dpi – which makes it somewhat great at printing photographs on photograph paper – and its sweep goals is just marginally lower at 2,400 x 1,200 dpi.

Structure and assemble 

In the event that the MFC-J5330DW was only an A4 multifunction printer, similar to the Canon Maxify MB2750, we would grumble about it taking up somewhat more work area space. Notwithstanding, the way that it can acknowledge A3 places it in an altogether different section. A4 sheets can be stacked into the plate in a representation direction, which means the cabinet doesn't stand out fumblingly, similarly as with most A4 printers. Or then again you can broaden the plate and fill it with 250 sheets of A3 paper. The scanner bed, nonetheless, is restricted to A4.

The J5330DW is an inkjet printer which retails at £180 (around $235, AU$315) and its four cartridges are stacked through a front fold. The top portion of the printer opens so as to see the printer heads and furthermore plug in the Ethernet and USB links. Sibling has put these ports within with the wires driving out through the back apparently to stop individuals incidentally unplugging the links.

As referenced, there's a 50-page ADF on the highest point of the machine for arranging examining or replicating occupations, and a solitary report feed plate at the back for envelopes, headed paper and so forth.


As a four-in-one MFP, this Brother offering can print, output, duplicate and fax like a trooper. Furthermore, similarly as with most models went for the little to medium business it is well-highlighted, with both Ethernet and Wi-Fi availability, the last of which incorporates Wi-Fi Direct in the event that you need to make a remote association without including a switch.

You can likewise utilize the astounding sidekick application to print and sweep remotely from a cell phone. The Brother iPrint and Scan application is a free download for iOS and Android.

Printing velocities of up to 22 ppm (pages every moment) in mono, or 20 ppm in shading, are guaranteed, in spite of the fact that we discovered this MFP preferably slower over that. It prints on the two sides of the page, however, and a reward highlight that you just get with A3 printers is the capacity to print A5 booklets.

Being an inkjet model, you will be focused on purchasing costly cartridge refills for the remainder of the printer's life, yet the expense is no more terrible than that of opponent brands. The four shaded inks apportion independently, so you're not constrained into supplanting the entire parcel when one runs out, and in the event that you pick the high return XL cartridges at £20.30 (around $26, AU$36) every, you can print up to 1,500 pages.

Arrangement and activity 

When you set up the Brother MFC-J5330DW just because, the touchscreen show strolls you through a fairly tedious well ordered guide that incorporates entering the date, time and Wi-Fi subtleties. What's more, when we fitted the four ink cartridges, we were asked by the arrangement wizard to expel them and place them in once more. Probably we some way or another wrecked it the first run through.

The arrangement technique is exceptionally careful if nothing else, and it incorporates printing out a vivid test page to guarantee that the print heads are effectively adjusted – which they were.

In task, the MFC-J5330DW was extremely clear to utilize, on account of the intelligent touchscreen show. It is somewhat little at 2.7-inches, yet we discovered we could type in Wi-Fi passwords without crushing the modest Qwerty console.

The main issue we had happened when refreshing the firmware, which would not work over Wi-Fi utilizing the sidekick application. We needed to join an Ethernet link and utilize the printer's touchscreen interface to download and introduce it. Furthermore, changing from Wi-Fi to a wired association included reinitialising the printer.


Print quality in mono is superbly worthy, and in shading, it delivered better outcomes than the comparatively styled Canon Maxify MB2750. Plain content shows up in a striking pigmented dark with smooth characters and no indication of spreading or running. The ink looks preferably heavier over it would with a laser printer, however it is steady.

Reports with beautiful outlines and pictures wake up with the striking inks, and are free from smearing or blocking dreadfulness. It additionally makes a fine occupation of photographs imprinted onto photograph paper. Inkjets went for the workplace tend not to deal with sensitive concealing just as their buyer inviting cousins, yet these outcomes figured out how to look both energetic and very normal.

We preferred

The Brother MFC-J5330DW offers all the basic highlights a little to medium-sized business may request in a printer. From its profound paper plate and 50-page ADF, to its quick duplex print speed and fax capacity, this is a multifunction printer pointed solidly at the workplace.

It performed very well in our tests, particularly when it came to shading reports, and didn't show any shortcomings, or experience the ill effects of any paper jams.

We disdained 

Barely any printers can be portrayed as alluring and the MFC-J5330DW is absolutely not one of them. It's bigger than your normal A4 MFP, yet it can't hold the same number of A4 sheets in its single paper plate. That is a result of its A3 printing capacity obviously, however recall that it can't sweep (or duplicate) at that measure. So in case you're probably not going to require enormous arrangement printing, you'll set aside cash and mass by picking an alternate model.

We likewise had some slight issues with the Wi-Fi during our audit, and found that it took more time to print shading reports than Brother's cited page rate.

Last decision 

As a four-in-one multifunction printer, the Brother MFC-J5330DW performs very well in all errands. It's quick, yet not as quick as certain opponents, and it's well-determined, lacking just NFC and a SD card space. It's likewise very well-planned in the manner that it oversees links inside and can suit A3 paper, despite the fact that its impression isn't a lot greater than the normal A4 MFP.

This gadget is additionally aggressively estimated, however the genuine bit of leeway for some, potential purchasers is probably going to be its A3 ability, which opens up the likelihood of creating great quality shading notices and booklets.
