Brother MFC-5460cn


Despite the similarities, however, there are some important differences. The MFC-5460cn claims a faster fax modem speed (at 33.6 Kbps compared with 14.4 Kbps for the MFC-440cn), has a higher-capacity ADF (35 pages instead of 10), and features a higher...

Automatic document feeder. Network port. Scans and faxes over network. Standalone copier and fax features

Slow. Paper capacity is only 100 sheets. Setup involves confusing, manual steps

Although it's suitable only for light-duty printing, the Brother MFC-5460cn delivers a full set of office-centric features, ranging from a network connection to standalone faxing.

Brother MFC-5460CN Review


At its price, we can say this is a good buy, if you don't mind waiting a bit for the print.

Brother - MFC-5460CN


Finding a multi-function machine, complete with network connection, fax and an auto-document feeder (ADF) for around £100 (plus VAT) is a rarity, so this new Brother device is interesting, straight out of the box. Styled conventionally ...

The Brother MFC-5460CN is a good choice for anybody on a tight budget, as it offers many features you don't normally see together on a machine at this price point. While neither print quality nor speed are anything to write home about, for day-to-day...

Brother MFC series MFC-5460cn Up to 30 ppm 6000 x 1200 dpi InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer


Would buy again.

Network ready, self cleaning/aligning, light drivers, cheap ink. Fax works great. The automatic scan feeder on the top is a big plus. Not very large

Doesn't print the fastest. You have to pull out this little plastic tray and then flip another peice of plastic up in order to catch printed sheets. Kind of ackward but saves space when not in use. USB/NIC are buried inside of the printer, also ackward

Good unit


A manual paper feed would be nice.

I have one of these printers for my small office and just bought one for a friend of mine. It does it all

Unit ships without a USB cable

Won't last! Save your money!


I bought this hoping it would last, but like many cheap printers, it is designed to die within 18 months. Mine made it about 14 months before starting to fail. It is a disposable printer, and you'd be better off buying something either cheaper (because...

Works great at first

Breaks in under 2 years ; Ink jets clog ; Small paper tray ; Annoying software slows startup ; Can't get refill kits for cartridges

Great Machine


Brother you make a fine machine,stop trying to make your money on ink. It's like pulling up to a gas pump and having to pay 6.00 $ a gallon because you have to have it.

Easy easy set up! Does exactly what it's suppose to do. great copier and fax. Scan and save to file couldn't be any easier. This is my second Brother all in one. I had the mfc 420cn for several years without any problems

Ink !!! four cartridges I guess the machine is set up to do a periodic nozzle cleaning. Same problem with my 420cn waist alot of ink in between use. I can have the machine off and every once in awhile you will here it making a noise like its possessed...

Slow when using the bundled software


Inexpensive, hardware works fine

VERY slow to start printing (15-20 sec) when the full 'bundle' of software is installed. Once it finally starts printing, the pages appear at reasonable speed ; Removing the 'software package' and re-installing the printer using native Windows printer...
