Improve your own 'bottom line' by saving money on ink with this printer.
4 July 2013
Summary: I needed the ability to print wirelessly because my USB ports all went to sleep on my laptop, and since my Brother MFC-240C has been such a fantastic machine for several years, I decided to stay with this design and buy this new MFC-490CW which also allows me to realize great savings on ink purchases while allowing me to print remotely from anywhere in my house wirelessly.
Excerpt: I've owned 2 Brother Multi Function printers including this one. I have had no problem with either one, and only upgraded to this one for the flatbed scanner. I sell alot of sportscards on-line and use the scanner at least twice a week. I also love the Faxing feature on this machine. It prints excellent quality pictures and text.
Best all in one printer! Awesome value for the price!!

Excerpt: I have had this printer for a couple of years now and I am very fond of it. First off the price of the printer was awesome. If memory serves me correctly I paid about $80 for it at Best Buy. But don't let the price of this printer fool you - it has all the quirks you need and more!! It definitely outranks most of the highly raved HP printers I have seen. This printer has all the functions you would need to run a home office. It can fax, scan, copy, and print.
Excerpt: I am reviewing the Brother MFC 490CW. It is a printer, copier,scanner, fax and captures photos from your camera! I have not personally used the photo capture feature so I will not be reviewing it. I do use the printer, fax, copier on a daily basis, and scanner on a weekly basis, and just love all the functions. I can enlarge and reduce my copies and faxes, print confirmations to faxes sent. I can do this in Black and White or in Color.
Excerpt: I Bet my Brother MFC-490CW is Smarter than a 5th Grader! It's the only printer with a mind of it's own that let's me know immediately if I must change the cartridge; open or close a door ext. In fact, it seems to have a brain. Anyways, I seriously use this 5-in-1 every single day and it is a stellar product. The only problem being is that if you use it regularly, you will be changing one of the many color cartridges quite frequently.
Excerpt: I own a laser printer, but I am on my laptop a lot and not hooked up to the laser printer. It was impossible to print from my laptop, so I remedied this issue by purchasing the Brother MFC-490CW model. I bought it on sale at Office Max for approximately $80.00. I wasn't expecting much for the price, you get what you pay for, but it has surprised me from the get go! It is a 5 in 1 printer, having the capabilities, to print, copy, scan, fax and photo capture.
Excerpt: The Brother MFC-490 All-in-one printer is the best printer on the market. This printer is an excellent value for your money. If you are looking for a printer that fax, prints, scans and telephone, this is a perfect fit. It prints a lot faster then my other printers ever have. I had never heard of the Brother printer until someone recommended me to this product and I have been a fan ever since.
Summary: My girlfriend has this printer (over a year). I love it better than my epson (NX415) - only because of cartridge &quot;recognition&quot; issues - very frustrating. Print quality about the same. this is a great printer, copier and its wireless.
