Brother MFC-J4610DW

 

The Brother MFC-J4610DW inkjet multifunction printer can hold 400 letter-size sheets and manually feed paper as large as 11 by 17 inches.

Prints up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches). Holds 400 sheets of paper. Ethernet. Wi-Fi. Automatic document feeder.

Sub-par graphics quality. Tabloid-size paper requires manual feeding.

The most convincing argument in favor of any of these printers is the ability to print tabloid-size pages with an inexpensive printer. If you don't need that capability, you may be better off looking elsewhere. On the other hand, if you have an...

Brother MFC-J4610DW Review and Ratings

 

Though not the strongest photo printer, this speedy inkjet AIO is a fine value for homes or small offices, thanks to its capacious paper handling, support for printing ledger-size pages, and budget-friendly ink.

Speedy ; Low per-page ink cost ; Ledger-size printing via manual-feed slot ; Wide support for memory cards, mobile printing ; In-trays hold 400 sheets

Subpar photo output ; Many settings can only be tweaked on printer, not from computer

Of course, any printer is only as good as the features you plan to use most. If you come to the MFC-J4610DW primarily for its photo printing and copying capabilities, you’ll be disappointed. The same applies if you expect this printer, which can deal...

Brother MFC-J4610DW

 

The Brother MFC-J4610DW inkjet multifunction printer offers a 400-sheet capacity for letter-size paper plus a manual-feed slot that can handle paper as large as 11 by 17 inches.

Setting up the printer was standard fare. For my tests, I connected to a wired network and installed the drivers on a Windows Vista system.

warranty issues

 

this printer has had very little prints run since we bought it. have other brother printers in office and more than satisfied with them but this particular on is junk

cheap and easy to initially set up and works great when it works

warranty is a joke read the following that i've sent to brothers. don't expect a response but made me feel better ; we have a brothers printer that is slightly less than one year old and has had very little use. this machine has an obvious hardware...

The best.

 

I look forward to purchasing Brother printers. This is my third and I purchased it as a large format printer. Brother has the lowest cost ink. It was easy to set up and not as noisy as others have mentioned. It's sound is not the least bit annoying...

Always have liked Brother MFC printers.

 

This is my second Brother MFC that I have bought. The first one being a BJC-4100. The print quality on this printer is amazing and fast. The ink cartridges last a good long time. Each color is separate so you have 4 cartridges and can replace each one...
