Features Of Brother MFC-J995dw INKvestment Tank Printer


The Brother MFC-J995DW boasts a sturdy design, front-accessible ink cartridges, a well-constructed input tray, and a scanner lid. Under the scanner bed, in the lower-left corner of the front panel, are the Ethernet and USB ports. The USB and Ethernet ports are hidden inside the scanner glass, not outside it. To access them, you have to lift the glass up. Furthermore, These ports are connected to the back of the printer by cables. Getting a connection to these ports will require you to run approximately 1.6 feet longer cable due to its serpentine cable routing. Moreover, its 2.7” color touchscreen display is operated more easily thanks to the 45-degree inclination of the control panel.

This model’s most unique feature is the specialty media tray on the rear. It holds only one sheet at a time, which makes it hard for users to print more than one photo onto glossy paper or documents from drives. 


Inkvestment Tank technology gives Brother J995DW printer a bit quicker overall printing speed, compared to other Brother models with the same technology ( Brother MFC-J805DW INKvestment Tank and Brother MFC-J895DW). According to the manufacturer, the printer prints at the speed of 12 ppm (black) and 10 ppm (color). With black and white documents, the speed is consistent from the first to the next page, and color documents are just as quick to print as black and white ones. The business-friendly printer doubles speed by also offering versatile and flexible paper handling options as well as automatic double-sided (duplex ) printing. In addition, an automated document feeder  (ADF) can be adapted to accept both thick and thin paper.

In duplex prints, the text appeared slightly lighter than some other models. Overall, the Brother all-in-one printer delivered high-quality print output. However, Photo prints may not be accurate enough for designers and other professionals.

Cost per page

The Brother J995DW offers fantastic value as far as cost-per-print is concerned. It stays low even when you print a large amount. Don’t forget that you may need to replace the colour cartridge eventually even if you only print in black.

Borderless Printing

Although the printer can print borderless, it is often misaligned and requires manual adjustments. Grays, for example, appear to show some fine banding when printed.


A variety of connectivity options are offered by the Brother MFC-J995DW The “Touch to Connect” feature made it possible to print and scan wirelessly from a desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet without setting up NFC.

NFC technology allows easy pairing with the printer and launches the Brother app on the mobile device. Printing directly from USB or SD cards is also an option.

Mobile App

The MFC-J995DW offers direct printing, copying, and scanning from the Brother iPrint&Scan mobile app.
