You never expected that using an inkjet all-in-one could be this simple! Brother finally released into the market the MFCJ870DW that is easy to connect using a wireless setup assistant or to your wired Ethernet network. It also allows you to conveniently print from or scan to your supported mobile device and "touch to connect" directly from your NFC-Capable device.

A close look at the current market dynamics and demand for this all-in-one inkjet printer, Amazon.com emerges as the best place to make your purchase. The last time I checked, the MFCJ870DW was being sold by an independent, but verified seller on Amazon.com Shipping is free with every purchase, but is limited to locations within the US only.

Main features

Brother Work Smart MFCJ870DW features automatic duplex (built-in 2-sided) printing that helps save on paper. By using high-yield inks, this printer guarantees great savings on printing costs. Not only does it make it possible to save greatly on paper, but also presents an intuitive menu navigation panel on a 2.7" TouchScreen color LCD display.

The wireless assistant is yet another striking feature in the MFCJ870DW. It walks you through the network setup without the need for a USB cable or a password. Sharing the printer with others on the network has been made much simpler. All you need is a network supporting 802.11b/g/n or wired Ethernet network, or you can alternatively connect to a single computer using a USB cable.
