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

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...
