The 9450 prints flawless text, and can be trusted to print your best text documents, even those enhanced with spot color or graphics.

Terrible Color printing, good scanner, good B7W printer

 

Avoid this printer

Good scanner, good B&W printing

Color printing is terrible. Light brown comes out as pink, dark blue comes out as light blue, all colors are washed out. The drum gets scored easily giving spots on every page printed

Brother MFC-9450CDN

 

Must be OK because Im buying another one to use for the next 2 1/2 years before it gets too ill and gets dumped again.

Full color, automatic duplexing. Duplex mode jammed only once in 2 years. Nice for a cheap machine. I could not and still cannot find similar units at around the $550 (street) price level. Actually ran into this review site while shopping for a second...

Super slow for first page out, seems like 3 minutes or more. Very slow when running automatic duplex. However, doing "set and forget" duplex is worth it. Beats printing one side then setting up to print and babysit the second side of the same page....

Useless printer!

Scanning to email

It does not print, 1 out of 10 times it will become warm enough to start printing. Print unpossible is mostly displayed

Consumer review by:

Brother MFC-9450CDN

 

Why would Susan rate this well when she stated that the prints are sub-par? What good is ease of use when it prints like doo-doo? Take a pass.

Easy to set up with wizards. Wirelessly

Muddy prints. Slow to warm up. The PC World editor stated 'yellowish prints', how in the world would this get a better rating than the Canon when the prints look like you-know-what is beyond me. We buy a printer to print, a laser printer to print...

Great Printer

 

Owned this just over a year. No trouble to speak of. Prints fast, prints good color, nice it has a toner save option (use this most of the time). Double sided printing is great, interaction with computers for scanning is cool. More features than I've used

Software suite's interface is a little heavy and non-standard, but it works
