Brother MFC-J470DW

 

With speed, office-friendly features, and a low price, the Brother MFC-J470DW inkjet multifunction printer is our top choice for a micro or home office.

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Integrated Wi-Fi. Duplexer for two-sided printing. Automatic document feeder. Fast

No wired network support. Low paper capacity

If you need an inexpensive multifunction printer (MFP) for your micro or home office, be sure to take a look at the Brother MFC-J470DW ($99.99). Basically a more capable version of the discontinued Brother MFC-J430w, the MFC-J470DW delivers...

Difficult to Set Up

Consumer review by:

Excellent combination system, so far.

 

After 2 weeks, it's behaving just fine. Set-up took some time, but the scanning and printing seems to be working well. And the starter ink supply doesn't seem to be running out too fast. There'll be plenty of time for disasters in the future, but so...

Gave it another try, Big Mistake

 

The product for others may work well, but for me it quit after less than one day. I wrote a prior review but decided to contact Brother again and give it another try. Spent over an hour on the phone, again they tried to charge me $50 to replace a...

Another Great Printer from Brother

 

My last Brother MFC 665CW developed a problem with the answering machine feature after 8 years of quality service, so I intensely comparison shopped across several retailers and online for another Brother to take it's place in the $150 or less range....

Easy Set up

 

I was soon printing from my new printer, couple of months later - IMO, uses more ink than I thought it would and does not print as well as my old, cheap HP that I wore out after several years of use, but has some features that I like, like copying more...
