  • Summary: this is absolutely the worst purchase I have ever made. It will work a few times and make you think you made a good choice but then will haunt you with problems. I have wasted more money replacing ink cardtridges than it would cost to buy another printer.

Dream printer / scanner / copier / fax

Cora, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this five years ago. Use it daily. Absolute WORKHORSE of a printer. I'm a sales manager and print 2-3 20 page contracts a day. My wife is a music teacher and prints 5-20 pages of music a day. Never had a problem. Ever.

  • Summary: Only worked for a couple of days before I had my first problem. Needless to say, I don't trust it and just hope it lasts long enough to use up the ink.

  • Summary: Has worked well for me for the past 3 years. REALIZE THIS - - printers are sold cheaply, the profits are in the ink. Most manufactures protect their profits by putting some sort of tamper proofing into their cartridge design.

Will buy Brother for life.

Robert Carnaroli, Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: I know this printer is discontinued but I felt so strongly about its performance I had to rate it anyway. We haven't been able to break this thing in 5 years. We had a 20lb cat that like to walk all over it and send faxes.

Why is the Brother MFC-490 so expensive?

Armando Gonzales, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchase the same model 8 years ago at a Staple's office supply store in Riverside, Ca. for $99; Brand new. It broke down 4 years later, and had it replaced by the manufacture, at no charge; and I still use it to this day. But Why are they asking $400 for a brand new one?
