Customer Questions & Answers

  • I know this is an A3 printer, but can you scan A3 pages?

    Hi, Unfortunately the Brother MFC-J5330DW can only scan up to A4.

    On 25/10/2018 12:25:52
  • Hi. Does this allow documents to be scanned via a feeder or can you only scan a page at a time? Is there a limit on the number of pages it can scan at any time? Thanks

    The Brother MFC-J5330DW features a 50 Sheet Automatic Document Feeder for scanning up to 50 pages at a time.

    On 08/10/2018 17:48:02
  • What does "sort copy up to 30 sheets" mean regarding the document feeder?

    Hi, the sort copy feature stacks the printed pages in the order they are fed. For example, if you are copying a 3 page document and making 10 copies, the sort copy feature will sort them in the paper output 1,2,3, as opposed to them coming out 10 copies of page 1 and 10 copies of page 2.

    On 06/09/2018 12:15:26
  • Does this printer print A4 and A5?

    The Brother MFC-J5330DW can handle the following media sizes: A3, LGR, LGL, A4, LTR, EXE, Folio, A5, A6, Photo(10x15cm), Indexcard(13x20cm), Photo-L(9x13cm), Photo-2L(13x18cm), Com-10, DL Envelope, Monarch, C5, Mexico Legal and India Legal.

    On 24/08/2018 14:50:37
  • hi, just to 100% clarify the answer to question 1 on the Q&A. A3 printin: ok, it will print double-sided. BUT: does it print multiple pages automatically? i.e., if you needed to print 10 double sided A3 pages, one wouldn't need to feed each A3 sheet manually, when using the double-sided mono or colour feature..? Thank you

    The Brother MFC-J5330DW is capable of automatic double-sided printing onto multi-page A3 documents. This feature is automatic for both colour and monochrome printing too. If you need to turn duplex printing off, this can be accessed within the driver settings.

    On 28/05/2018 13:33:07
  • Just to confirm, does the automatic duplex printing also apply to A3 printing? i.e. if I send a pdf of a brochure - multiple duplex pages in colour-, and feed the automatic tray, it will print it all ok and automatically?

    Yes, the Brother MFC-J5330DW is capable of printing double-sided on A3 media. This means it will be able to print a double-sided A3 PDF document.

    On 11/05/2018 15:47:41
  • Will this printer work with my Mac. The drivers listed are all Windows

    Hi, Yes the Brother MFC-J5330DW is Mac compatible.

  • Myfanwy Ashworth 14 September 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Printerland & Brother Review

    Great service & price. Ordered the printer on Sunday and it arrived early on the following Tuesday. The printer is large but still fitted in the space left by our old printer - just! I found it easy to set up by following the quick guide provided. There was even instructions on how to get it out of it's box which were very useful. After reading other reviews I decided to connect to the router by using the screen on the printer and had no trouble at all. The printer is very quiet and much faster than our old HP Photosmart. Have only tried standard A4 printing so far and I am happy with the results. look forward to using the automatic duplex as I have not had this at home before.

  • Mrs Halcyon 04 April 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Brother does the business !

    This printer is excellent value for money and supplements our other printers well. I use this as a personal desktop printer and its the easiest set up I have ever come across in a printer including networking itself to the other users in the office. In addition the paper feeder on this machine performs better than the larger "workhorses" we have and it even lets you know when you leave a document on the scanner bed. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a small office or single user - we are now looking to order another one as well.

  • Jade Rawling 15 January 2018 2.5 / 5 Value 4 Features 2 Quality 1 Performance 3 Less than average printer

    Although it does everything, it does it poorly, scans are decent, but nothing to shout about and the print quality on different papers and different settings consistently come out faded. I've tried every setting including cleaning printer heads, shaking the toner and pledging my allegiance to our overlord Brother to no avail. Also at 16kg it's a bit big!

  • Michael Vermeersch 26 November 2017 4.75 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 4 Performance 5 Great value

    This printer was A-listed in my recent PC Pro magazine. I trust their reviews and was proven right. The printer is fast and prints out good quality paper. The menu system works fine - some people say it lags a bit. I find it fine. The printer is big, so make sure you have the space. Only sad thing is that I had to install the software supplied in order to operate the scanner, whereas my previous printer allowed a webserver to sort that.

  • John Bede 14 September 2017 4 / 5 Value 4 Features 2 Quality 5 Performance 5 re A3 scanning

    This machine's write-up and delivery box do not make clear that it can print A3 but it cannot scan or copy A3. The information given is correct, but is also misleading. I would not have bought this machine if I had been alerted to the "No A3 scan or copy" capability.

Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print
