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.

Has worked well for me for the past 3 years ...

  • 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

  • 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?

  • Summary: I purchased this printer in 2009 and still going strong like the day it came out of the box. however I DID NOT pay that much for it. I paid 179.00 at Best Buy and that was with a warranty. I liked the price of the ink cartridges to they are very affordable!! We home school and we print A LOT.

Had this for awhile now and no problems

  • Summary: Really good quality and like being able to replace just the colors or black when it needs it instead of a "color" cartridge and a "black" cartridge.

  • Summary: I have four retail businesses and have this Brother MFC-490CW printer at each one. We are purchasing two more the in the few months. We purchased the first printer over a year ago and haven't had any maintenance issues. The printer is easy to use with a great display.

Great printer for home use!

A. Simmons, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I've had this printer over a year now and I love it!! I especially like that I can scan in multiply documents without having to babysit the printer. Many people have complained about ink usage. After my initial cartridges were empty I started buying generic ink.
