Brother MFC-J415W multifunction inkjet printer

 

Brother MFC-J415W review: This inkjet multifunction printer has inbuilt wireless, a fax and an automatic document feeder

Cheap considering it features an automatic document feeder and wireless networking, good document printing speeds in Draft quality

Interface is overly simplistic, low input and output paper capacity, high quality prints are slow, low ink capacity, no high-yield cartridges available

The Brother MFC-J415W makes a good argument for itself as an all-in-one multifunction printer for a small business. If your main needs are pumping out draft-quality documents quickly, and faxing and scanning, the MFC-J415W is appropriate and well...

Brother MFC-J415W

 

A well-featured all-in-one, but one which doesn't compare well with rival products at a similar price.

Wow, great product!

 

This is my first brother product, after doing a little research, we opted for this. Set up was almost too easy. I have it set-up as a wireless printer, for a Win XP, 2 Win Vista, and 1 Win 7 machine(s). No issues setting it up.
