Excerpt: This is a cheep MFC. And you get what you pay for. My machine jams up all the time. A few days ago it broke a small little piece inside. I do like that it uses four different inks - that is nice, but the color is muted and I have cursed at it one to many times.
Excellent Printer, Blows Away the HPC6180 That It Replaced.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was forced into buying my Brother MFC-465CN printer when my HP Photosmart C6180 died after only a year and a half (and after only printing/copying less than 5900 pages). I have prior experience with both HP and Brother printers --- I have come to swear at HP for their* *products and customer service (aka, NONE) and have come to swear by Brother products.
Excerpt: Bought this to make everyone happy! It could fax, copy & scan! After two weeks it would pirnt nice copies but fax feed broke! We only used the fax function perhaps a dozen times before it gave up. It also seemed very expensive from a cost per page with color. WE found ourselves replacing a different color ink cartridge very often.
Excerpt: First, the black ink comes out as dark gray at best, even when printing in the best mode. And print time is not fast. The most irritating thing, though, is that the scanner will not work with my new iMac. I specifically checked for Mac compatibility before buying this printer, but I guess it is only compatible through Tiger. It does not work with Leopard. It prints, but I can not get the scanner to work. I haven't tried the fax yet.
Excerpt: I wanted the Brother MFC-465CN to cover some modest needs. While it was inexpensive to buy, that is where the savings end. The setup was easy, whether for local use or networked except that the documentation was sparse. This made it hard to find where to connect the USB cable. Fortunately, there are videos online (locate through search engines). The print is ok, not fabulous. While legible, it lacks crispness and intensity. Speed did perform within expectations.
Excerpt: I just purchased this to replace our HP 712C so anything was an improvement but I am so happy with this printer. I read reviews and did my research before ordering. I have not used all the features as of yet but the print, scan and card reader features are all excellent. I see that Mac users have had troubles with this printer but I am a desktop PC user and I've had no trouble at all with this unit.
Excerpt: When my cheap Dell printer stopped working, I bought this Brother printer which does so much more. I'm glad I did, because it has held up great over the past couple years. I love that it can also scan and make copies, but I've had no need for the fax function or the networking capabilities that it also has. I like the color LCD screen, as well as the different paper bypass trays.
The Brother MFC-465 is decent but the software is awful
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Brother MFC-465CN is a mid-tier mutlifunction scan / print / copy machine controlled by truly terrible software. The features themselves function as advertised and I have not had any physical issues with the machine. The software, however, has caused all sorts of problems on my computer, particularly around causing conflicts with internet connectivity.
The Brother MFC-465CN All-In-One printer is a consumer nightmare
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I do not- let me repeat- DO NOT recommend Brother's MFC-465CN All-In-One Multifunction Printer/Scanner/Fax Machine if you are on a strained budget. Under that attractive exterior lies an ink buyer's nightmare! I first met the Brother MFC-465CN All-In-One Multifunction Printer/Scanner/Fax Machine at my local Office Depot office supply store.
Excerpt: I've had the Brother MFC-465CN for over 2 years now and it still works great! It is a printer, scanner, copier, fax all in one machine. My model doesn't have the handset for the fax (my mom has the one with the handset) I didn't want/need the handset though, I don't use this as a phone. It makes great copies, scans like a pro and uses the printer ink efficiently. I have never had any issues with jams-ever.
