Brother MFC-J470DW review: Finally, a multifunction inkjet printer with low-cost ink refills

 

The Brother MFC-J470DW is an easy-to-use multifunction inkjet printer that also operates as a dedicated fax machine, copier and scanner. Its list price is $100 (£108, AU$149), but it's widely available online for up to 30 percent less. The MFC-J470DW...

The Brother MFC-J470DW boasts fast print speeds, cloud connectivity, Apple AirPrint and Google Chrome Print compatibility, four separate ink tanks, and a supremely low cost of consumables.

The cheap rubber buttons and an overall plastic feel of the unit don't transcend its bargain price tag.

If you only have $100 to spend on a multifunction inkjet printer for the office, you'll have a hard time finding a faster performer with ink refills as cheap as the Brother MFC-J470DW.

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

 

A small and home office all-in-one with duplex printing and wireless connectivity

Full fax functions ; High yield cartridge option ; Compact design

No multi-purpose feed ; No front-panel USB/card slots ; Very slow wireless print

The Brother MFC-J470DW is a good, general-purpose SOHO all-in-one, not excelling in any particular area, but competent in most. It would be good to have a front USB socket for direct print and scan, a single-sheet feed for letterheads and special media...

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...

"Great Value"

 

A small machine with a big range of features. This is my first Brother printer. The features and prices, including cost per page printing, represented value for money to me. The inclusion of all the cables (often an additional purchase requirement),...

Lots of functionality, small desk footprint, fantastic price
