Is the price difference of $867 worth it?

It depends on what you need from a Printer. We'll break it down for you.
Comparison summary:
Advantages of Brother MFCJ5930DW:
  • We couldn't find any reasons to recommend Brother MFC-J6935DW.
Advantages of Brother MFC-J6935DW:
  • It is $867.88 cheaper
  • It takes less time to print the first page in black
Alright, now let's go into details.
1 differences we consider important:
  • Brother MFC-J6935DW takes less time to print the first page in black (5s vs 6s)
    This initialization is period is called 'First page out' time; it's 6 seconds for Brother MFCJ5930DW and 5 seconds for Brother MFC-J6935DW. This makes Brother MFC-J6935DW 1 seconds faster at printing first page in black than Brother MFCJ5930DW.
17 similarities we think are important to mention:
  • Both printers can print over Wi-Fi
    Printing over Wi-Fi is a very common feature, available even in most budget models.
  • Both printers can print from mobile
    In most cases, if a printer supports wireless printing, it also supports Wi-Fi printing.
  • Both printers support two-sided printing
    Automatic duplex printing (also known as two-sided printing) refers to a printer's ability to print on both sides of the paper, without having to manually flip it.
  • Both printers have a built-in scanner & copier
    Scan and copy technology have a large hardware overlap. If a printer supports scanning, it will likely support copying.
  • Both printers can scan/copy custom-sized documents (built-in flatbed scanner).
    Flatbed scanners allow scanning documents one by one. Unlike ADF scanners, you can only scan one page at a time. However, flatbed scanners allow you to scan custom-sized documents, like passports, drivers licenses, etc. Flatbed scanners also tend to produce higher quality images.
  • Both printers can scan/copy stacks of documents (built-in ADF).
    ADF, or Automatic Document Feeder allows a printer to scan or copy a stack of pages. This feature is so important that even the cheapest printers try to include it. Technically speaking, ADF is not a feature of the printer - it is a feature of the scanner or copier.
  • Both printers support two-sided scanning (duplex ADF scanner).
    A two-sided (duplex) ADF scanner allows scanning a stack of documents on both sides.
  • Both printers have an LCD status display
    LCD status displays are very useful. Your printer can tell you if ink is low or paper is jammed.
  • Both printers accept touch-screen commands
    Touch-screen displays allow you to interface with a printer much faster, especially scanning and copying.
  • Brother MFCJ5930DW is about as loud as Brother MFC-J6935DW.
    Both are about 50 decibels when printing. How loud is that? We made a decibel chart for you to reference.
  • Both printers print at about the same speed in black & white (22 PPM)
    Both printers print at 22 pages per minute (PPM) in black-and-white. To print 100 pages in BW it would take about 04:33
  • Both printers print at about the same speed in color (20 PPM)
    Both printers print at 20 pages per minute (PPM) in color. To print 100 pages in BW it would take about 05:00
  • Both printers take about the same time print the first page in color (6s)
    First page out time is 6 seconds for both printers, in color.
  • Both printers are energy star qualified.
    Energy Star is a set of standards that aims to reduce energy consumption of various devices. An Energy Star Qualified printer consumes less electricity to operate and is more environmentally friendly.
  • Both printers can scan/copy a stack of up to 50 pages.
    This feature is known as 'ADF Capacity' - it's the maximum number of sheets that you can fit into the ADF paper input tray.
  • Both printers can send scans to email.
    This refers to the printer's ability to send a scan directly to an email recepient without having to use a computer.
  • Both printers can combine scans into searchable PDFs.
    This is a very important feature for those who plan to scan a lot of multi-page documents. A printer will combine the pages into a single PDF file. So instead of receiving a dozen pictures, you get one PDF. Going a step further, certain printers use embedded OCR Software (convert image to text) to create searchable PDFs. This way allows you to do computer wizardry with the resulting scan file, such as copy, paste, search, edit, etc.

scanner Scan, Fax, and Photocopy

The four main functions of printers are: printing, scanning, photocopying, and faxing. Either your device will be print only, print/scan/copy, or an all-in-one printer that does printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Note that scanning and copying almost always come together, since the hardware for these features overlaps significantly. Generally speaking, all-in-one printers are larger, so those with space constraints may find this to be an inconvenience. Additionally, printers with a fax feature are typically more expensive. It would be wise to only consider this feature if you plan to fax often. If not, you’ll be satisfied with a print/scan/copy device.

wifi_tethering Connectivity

Network printers can be wired or wireless. A printer with a wired network connection uses an Ethernet cord that connects directly to your router. A wireless printer connects to your home or office Wi-Fi network. Any computer also connected to your network can use your printer, whether it’s wired or wireless. You will have to install software, or printer drivers, on the computer before you can print. Also, there is a setup process for the printer to get it on the network. If your printer is not wireless, you’ll need to connect it directly to your computer via USB cable, which is not ideal if you have multiple users that need the printer simultaneously.

Outside of Wi-Fi, there are a number of ways a device can connect to a printer. If the printer is not wireless, you’ll have to connect to your printer via USB cable. Some people prefer using the wired connection because it allows for faster data transfers and quicker printing. Depending on the speed of your Wi-Fi and how strong the signal is, it can take time for the document to send from computer to printer over the network. Using a wired connection eliminates this issue. Other connections you may have are: Ethernet for wired connection to your network; Airprint or Google Cloud Print for quick direct printing over the cloud/internet; USB hard drive or memory card to print directly from storage devices; or PictBridge to print directly from cameras.

Printers with an LCD screen/display give you the option to control some settings directly on the printer, such as a one-touch print, scan, copy, or fax. You may also be able to adjust print quality, preview the print job, and/or view connection settings. Some screens are programmed to offer setup instructions for easy installation. For those who are not particularly tech savvy, this could be helpful.
