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...

Brother MFC-J470DW review

 

It's got lots of features, but neither the capabilities nor the print quality of this all-in-one printer quite justify its price

The printer uses four individual ink cartridges, which cost around £16 for black and £12 for the colour high-yield cartridges. This works out at a print cost of just 8.7p per page of mixed black and colour printing and 2.7p per mono page: excellent...

A Brother Multifunction Device : Brother MFC-J470DW

 

Brother continues to develop its range of multifunction devices. This latest model is aimed more at the office rather than home users.

The Brother MFC-J470DW multifunction device follows the normal convention of mounting an A4 flatbed scanner on top of an inkjet printer. Along with the usual functions of Scan, Print and Copy, the device adds Fax, Duplex, ADF (Automatic Document...

Works well

 

Product has worked well at my home. Now I purchased 2 for the office. Although it's expensive to print due to cartridge prices, for the few pages we print a month it does well. Scanning and fax work well.

Good Value, Easy to Use, Easy to Set Up

Great Printer Great Price

 

Printer was very easy to set up and use, with good print quality. The replacement printer cartridges are a lot cheaper than cartridges for other brand printers.

Good printer for the price

 

I don't print often and have only printed a few documents sine I purchased this last week. Print quality and speed is good. Set up on wireless was a little more difficult than I anticipated. I had a conflict during set up because I have a wireless...

Highly disappointed

 

My Dell printer finally died during a huge rush project, so I ran out to Office Max and found a printer I liked and in my budget. Installation was super easy. However, EVERY TIME I print and/or copy, I get a paper jam which is so frustrating. I cringe...

Will never buy a brother again

 

Hard to get anything to print, has called the help center, I guess every time I want to print something I have to turn the printer off and on, disconnect and connect.

Difficult to Use, Slow
