Brother MFC-7460DN


Although the MFC-7460DN is midway between its two siblings in price, it's at least arguably closer in spirit to the more expensive MFC-7860DW. Compared with the MFC-7360N, it adds (among other things) a duplexer; a little faster engine speed, at 27...

Suitably small for personal use or for a micro office. Ethernet. Duplexer. Single-sheet manual feed

No paper handling upgrade options

Small enough to serve as a personal mono laser MFP, the Brother MFC-7460DN can be a good fit in a micro office as well.

Brother MFC-7460DN


In a workhorse printer, all that some small and home-based businesses need is an all-in-one (AIO) laser model that churns out decent-looking black-and-white business documents at respectable speeds. Three other things also help: The machine is easy to...

Good output quality ; Relatively fast printing for entry-level price ; Easy to set up and use

Subpar copying, scanning of photos ; No wireless connectivity ; No card readers or support for printing from smartphones, tablets, and other devices

This monochrome laser all-in-one prints great-looking business documents at respectable speeds. Just mind the lack of Wi-Fi or quality photo scanning.

Brother's MFC-7460DN provides most of the things you need to run a small office in one, neat device. As long as you don't need colour.

Quite a bit faster than MFC-7360N ; Easy maintenance, two-part cartridge ; Good quality print

No wireless connection ; No front panel USB socket ; Dim LCD display

Brother - MFC-7460DN


Times are hard, so it's even more important when choosing a printer for your small business or home office that you get the most bang for your buck - and which won't take up too much ...

Brother's MFC-7460DN is a compact multifunction workhorse that has impressively high speeds, auto-duplex, fax and good quality printing but lacks a few standard extras, and the bundled scanning software is not entirely reliable.

brother MFC-7460DN


I'm very surprise with this printer/copier/scanner/fax. Works very well. Setup of network connection is a snap. Thumbs up to Brother

I did not had it before

great printer


I just received this Printer and tried it out. It works well, but I must confess I have only just tried it out. Brother produces a great line of printers and has for years. This is our family 4th in 18 years. They are real work horses. This one is...

Defective Unit - Warranty Covered It


The unit was broken. Their tech support wasn't efficient, but it did get the job done at the end of the day. I'm a big fan of Brother for their features to price ratio, but previously I've always thought of their products as toasters. Toss em when they...

Decent features at a pretty good price. Fits in nicely as a fax machine with some capability as a backup copier/printer

The unit I got was defective. It's had problem handling paper from the first day. I had to constantly fiddle with it so that it would print. Incoming faxes got lost because the printer held it waiting for someone to fill the already filled paper tray -...

Wish for Scanner

I own a pretty successful Computer and Electronics repair business, needless to say I will not be selling Brother anything in the future. Spend the money and buy a good printer... I had an old HP Laser MFP lasted YEARS and over 100,000 pages with...

Print quality is great, auto duplex, network printer

Mis-feeds paper constantly, with less than 200 pages on the unit it started jamming, now it only feeds paper thought the manual input. Printing only text the stock toner lasted 150 pages before it started screaming about needing toner

Just ok


Nothing more to say, except FIX THE MANUAL FEEDER!

Wired network printer. Connects to the LAN with little or no trouble, and handles standard tasks of printing and scanning via the network connection

A couple of issues give me some regrets about buying this particular printer. The scanning software doesn't work on one of the computers, though it works on others. It scans but the PDF files are unreadable. It does work, however, if the scan is...
