The MFC-J895DW has a great build and design. The printer feels well-built even though it’s mostly plastic; the only part that feels a bit flimsy is the rear input tray. The ink cartridges are easily accessible, and while paper jams can only be accessed from the back of the printer, it isn’t complicated and doesn’t involve too many steps. The scanner lid’s hinges can be extended if you need to scan thicker documents or books.
There are a couple of downsides with the design. The power cord isn’t removable, so if it gets damaged, you have to replace the whole printer. The USB and ethernet ports are located beneath the scan bed and towards the center of the printer. This effectively shortens the cable length by about a foot, so you’ll need to adjust accordingly. Lastly, the output tray is part of the front input tray, which means that if you need to load paper during a print job, you have to remove the prints first.
