Brother MFC-J430W Review

 

The MFC-J430W by Brother, one of the largest and well-known manufacturers of MFP and AIO units, is an all-in-one printer which features print, scan, copy and fax. Most of these AIOs are usually similar in looks, but differ in features. Let's have a...

The MFC-J430W by Brother is a great AIO option for those who need speedy document printing, good quality photos. It's a compact AIO with wireless networking abilities at an economical price making it even more attractive. Of course the fact that it...

Brother MFC-J430w

 

Unlike most $100 inkjet multi-function printers (MFPs), the Brother MFC-J430w ($100 street)—also available through some sources as the MFC-J425w—leans much more toward being office-centric rather than being a home printer. Given the price, that's a...

Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. WiFi. Better than par text quality. Fast speed for business applications

No wired network support. Slow photo speed. Low paper input capacity

With a low paper capacity, but fast speed and good-quality text, the Brother MFC-J430w is a good fit as a personal printer in a small or home office.

Brother MFC-J430w Review: Fast MFP for Little Cash

 

For a printer that retails for only $100 (as of January 3, 2012) and is heavily discounted online, the Brother MFC-J430w color inkjet multifunction (copy/fax/print/scan) gets things done in a hurry: Text pages print at a brisk 7.6 pages per minute or...

Brother MFC-J430w Review: Low Cost, Limited Features

 

We've reviewed the MFC-J825dw and the MFC-J625dw so it's time for the budget friendly MFC-J430w.

Fax functionality ; Wireless Connectivity ; Mobile printing

Photo quality ; Lack of features

With the Brother MFC-J430w, the old saying "You get what you pay for," is quite appropriate. For less than $100, you'll get a basic all-in-one with a few nice features including fax functionality, mobile printing, wireless connectivity and a 20-sheet ADF.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Brother MFC-J430w

 

It's remarkable how much more you can get in an all-in-one (AIO) printer when you're willing to spend a little more. Case in point: Recently, we looked at Brother's $149.99 MFC–J825dw and were pleased with its long list of productivity and convenience...

High-quality prints, copies, and scans ; Fast ; Entry-level price

No automatic duplexer ; Somewhat high cost of consumables ; Slow processing when printing pages in reverse order

The $99 MFC-J430W has many features important to small and home offices, and it prints good-looking documents respectably fast. But $50 more could land you a much more full-featured printer. Choose cautiously.

Brother MFC-J430W review

 

The Brother MFC-J430W is a squat device that can print, scan, copy and fax. There's also a smallish colour display and wireless networking, but no wired Ethernet connection or memory card slots. This is an office-orientated device, though, so memory...

A home office MFP that's affordable to buy and run, but its performance is only average

Brother MFC-J430w review

 

For a printer that retails for only £108 and is heavily discounted online, the Brother MFC-J430w colour inkjet printer (copy/fax/print/scan) gets things done in a hurry: text pages print at a brisk 7.6 pages per minute or faster. Other strengths...

If your scanning and printing needs are minimal, but you want jobs to be done in a hurry, the Brother MFC-J430w is a cheap and efficient option. The output is serviceable, the ink is affordable, and - aside from the lack of automatic duplexing - the...

Brother MFC-J430W review

 

The Brother MFC-J430W delivers printed pages at a speedy pace and is easy to set up and use. However, its print quality just isn't as good as what you'll get from rival models at a similar price.

Fast print speeds ; On-board Wi-Fi ; Automatic document feeder

Feathering on bolded text ; Colours in graphics and photos are a little washed out

Overall, the MFC-J430W isn't a bad printer for the money, especially as it includes an automatic document feeder and prints pages speedily.

Brother MFC-J430W

 

If you don't need photo wizardry from your all-in-one, Brother's MFC-J430W home office printer still does the business with print, copy, scan and fax.

Well-featured software bundle, Easy to use, ‘inverted’ ADF, Wireless connection with WPS

Pale colour photo copies, No photo card readers, Small LCD display

A brilliant home printer/scanner/fax, with the only downsides its size and 9kg weight.
