All reasonably good, so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brother MFC-J6920DW A3 Colour Inkjet Wireless Multifunction Printer (Accessory)
Very pleasantly surprised. Setting up, including WiFi, was extremely easy. Now printing from iMac, iPhone and iPad is a breeze. Even in quiet mode it is a little noisy loading paper. Can't seem to print duplex on A3 yet (might not be possible, anyone any ideas?) but on A4 works very well. High quality photo printing is not it's forté, but I knew that, and didn't expect it to be.
I'm a little disappointed that, even though the trays have been set up on the control panel with the correct paper sizes, the mac driver doesn't automatically choose the correct tray to print from (again, anyone any ideas?).
But, so far, so good.

Hi there, the Brother website says the following:-
"Up to A3 automatic double-sided print/ A4 automatic double-sided copy and scan" which I take as Duplex printing is ok but not Duplex when copying & fax (A4 only). I dont know if that helps? Will be ordering today so will look out for this after set up!
I have the older generation (x2) model and the drivers dont auto select a3 either so perhaps it just is that way? Many thanks

Hi, this printer has just updated the MFC J6910DW which I have been using for just over a year and should be pretty much identical. I have never had a problem A3 duplex printing. The simple procedure is to change printer properties every time you want A3 because it is set to A4 duplex as default. In properties change paper source to tray 2 first then paper size to A3 (if you do it the other way around it gives a warning about paper source) and then go to advance settings and set paper scaling to A3 (Otherwise it tends to print A4 image onto A3 paper)
The automatic document feeder on top is a great boon on this model as it has its own duplexer which allows two sided documents to be loaded in the sheet feeder and duplex copies made. However, that only works for A4. A3 single sided copies and scans can also be done via the sheet feeder used for scanning, but will not go through small separate duplexer. The main printer can duplex A3 okay but that means to get a duplex print from scanned documents at A3 requires you to scan individual A3 pages to a PC and then combine them as a single document for printing.
I realise your query was months ago and probably solved by now but maybe this will clarify the matter for someone else reading this.
