Brother MFC-J4710DW


The office-oriented Brother MFC-J4710DW inkjet MFP's more notable features include the ability to print at up to 11 by 17 inches and the ability to scan both sides of a page at once.

Offers a 400-sheet capacity including one 250-sheet tray for up to tabloid size (11 by 17 inches). Duplexing scanner

Sub-par graphics quality

As the high-end printer (for now, at least) in Brother's Business Smart series, the Brother MFC-J4710DW offers everything you'll find in the Editors' Choice Brother MFC-J4610DW and more. That translates to starting with the same 400-sheet capacity for...

Big mistake purchase


Should have known to stay away when this was on sale. This is without a doubt the worst printer I have ever owned and I have owned at least 6 for business and home use. First, if it is color quality you are looking for, run away! The colors, even when...

It comes in a nice box

Most everything else

A great printer for a teacher.


When my old printer died I needed a fast printer, with color print, copier, scanner and paper capacity. It also needed to be small enough to put beside my computer and cost below $200.oo. I found it with The Brother 4-in-1.About me... Frequent user,...

Very fast printout of materials with good quality printing

Nothing, so far

Prob enough for home office!


Took quite a while to set up with wireless. Had to use Brother Solution Center and still had to try several different download options. The copies are crisp and fast but haven't printed photos as yet. Am hopeful they will be good also. I will try to...

Fast and clear copies

Wireless Set up difficult with updated iMac

The best inkjet multifunction printer


This a great value for a small footprint wifi double sided ADF scanner and auto duplex printing. The ability to print on ledger size paper is a bonus. You need to have a portable CD/DVD drive to install software on ultrabooks. It would be nice to...

Auto double sided scanning and printing, ledger printing a bonus

A cd/dvd drive is needed for installing software

So far a great printer


So far this printer works fine and prints pretty good. Still getting familiar with it and have not yet tried different papers or envelopes. Double sided printing is fast and works great. As for the losing wifi connection, I think I've figured out the...

Easy setup and installation

Seems to lose wifi connection but fix is easy

Great Printer For The Money!


To setup the printer initially, I tried to install the software that came on the provided CD-ROM. I have a MacBook Pro running OS-X 10.8.4 Mountain Lion and the software on the CD-ROM was outdated and wouldn't install out of the box. The setup...


Initial setup was a headache

Better capability than competition, and smaller.


Better than HP 8660. We use it alot for scanning, and the HP automatic document feeder was light duty with one smaller driver wheel. The Brother is heavy duty with three good sized driver wheels.About me... Demand high print quality, Frequent user,...

Solidly built, well integrated, and quiet

one strange rat-a-tat sound at the beginning of the print cycle

Very Happy


I have had this two months, and it is flawless. Man it is nice to have a great printer, fast, holds ton of paper, easy ink access. Great lcd menue. This sits in sleep mode and when your ready to print its ready. Wi-Fi works great. I did alot of...

Easy to set up. Pretty self-explanatory. I have discovered that it if sits "idle" for awhile, you need to "wake it up" by printing a page before scanning, however. (Unless, of course I have blonde moments! LOL) Pleased with my purchase
