Uses ink to "clean itself" and ink far too expensive.

astruhar07, Ebay

  • Summary: Ink is FAR too expensive. I use the printer about once a week and print in only black and white, yet somehow have to spend 60 dollars every 3 months on new colored ink. When I called and asked the technician, he said the ink was being used to "clean itself" whenever it turns on and off. I plan on selling my printer soon because of the cost of ink.

Simply a Great Multifunction Machine!

  • Summary: I purchased this primarily for the built-in FAX capability, but there are issues with our VOIP phone system that sometimes makes it difficult to operate correctly in the receive mode (even in the "Basic" setting that is designed for VOIP). It transmits a document nicely, however. This is a VOIP issue, not related to this, or any, FAX machine. The document feeder works great!

Has some good features, but has major clogging issues

ephychess, Ebay
10 April 2011
  • Summary: Has some good features, but has major clogging issues. It kept getting hopelessly clogged and would not print at all. I was about to give up on it until i tried a fix squirting some cleaning solution into the inkjets. It works now, but who knows for how long.

Brother MFC-495CW

  • Summary: Excellent quality printer for the price but if you're going to be doing much photo printing, I'd recommend an HP for the best black contrast. The ink is incredibly cheap for this printer though so for everyday printing, you can't beat it.

Great Printer

  • Summary: This printer is for me. My brother bought one a few months ago and I liked it so much that I had to get one. I love the front loading ink, the eithernet connection and the built in Faz machine. I definately suggest this printer if you are looking to buy one.

Brother MFC-495CW

yefimp, Ebay
9 August 2010
  • Summary: I am pleased with purchase. The fast delivery, low price, all while works! Little bit low speed of a seal and not so convenient technology of a seal of addresses on envelopes. And in rest all соотвтствует to the price.
