Brother MFC-9460CDN

 

The Brother MFC-9460CDN offers good speed and solid text and graphics quality to businesses looking for a color laser MFP.

Good speed and feature set. Solid text and graphics quality.

Sub-par photo quality. No memory-card slots.

An excellent buy

 

This prints as it's advertised and handles the job you give it. Make sure you have enough ram because if you don't, it is quite powerful and may slow down your system.

Easy to Use, Meets Expectations, Features
