Brother MFC-7460DN

 

The Brother MFC-7460DN can be equally at home as a personal MFP or a shared MFP in a micro office.

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

No paper handling upgrade options.

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 MFC-7460DN

 

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.

Good and fast. until it Jam

 

If you buy Rosewill drum and toner unit, it make printing really cheap Brother costumer service, do not want to help me because I didn't use their own toner...

- it print a LOT of sheet in a small amount of time. -Many fonctionnality

- After 1years, the printer won't printing on both side. A Jam always happen. - And that was, one of the First Reason why I bought this printer. - Brother Toner and Drum unit are very expensive.

If it was any flimsier...

 

Wouldn't recommend it. Too bad because we've always been happy with Brother.

Prints well when it prints

If the plastic this thing is made from was any thinner you could see through it which is probably why it jams so much. Now it won't unjam
