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, low cost per page, and an under-$100 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.

Brother MFC-J470DW

 

The home inkjet all-in-one market continues to be a crowded one and the sub-£100 arena is one of the keenest price brackets. Brother's MFC-J470DW is aimed at home office workers rather than the photo enthusiast and includes fax and an automatic...

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

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...

"Out of the box, my printer prints on a slant. Reaching someone at Brother who has any knowledge of the product is unbelievably frustrating. "

 

Everything set up quickly and effortlessly. However, when I went to print, the printing was on a slant. The paper is in correctly and coming through the printer correctly. Yet the printing was on a slant. I've tried unsuccessfully to reach someone at...

none that I can see yet

Brother's support is a total failure.

"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

"Affordable & Solid little workhorse w/ latest & greatest technology"

 

I have owned this little all in one brother for about 1 year and have used it for my home based business. It works great for scanning documents to email, the brother software (control center 4) is great for scanning from a PC. Brother also makes an...

Air Print, Google Cloud Print, scan to direct email, scan to direct cloud upload,....

Nothing, it's an amazing value for the money!

Great decision to purchase

 

This wireless printer actually prints better and faster than my old Lexmark 8300 series. It was very easy to install and works off my I-Phone as well as our computers.

i have 2 envy printers now
