Excerpt: This is my second brother all-in-one printer. It was exceptionally easy to set up, looks good and has all the functiones needed (fax, scan, print, copy). The only drawback is that it is slow, which is no problem for one or two pages, but can be frustrating with a document.
Excerpt: this wasw a quick buy for me and I did little research on it, however this has been by far a great decision as a purchace. it is easy to set up with dell laptop, even set up without a dell is easy. cartridges are easy to install and I love how it show the ink levels.
This is one execptional printer with many functions.

Excerpt: I bought the Brother MFC-495CW printer a few months ago and I am glad I did. It has everything you want and need and more in one compact printer. It is energy star product that will go to a sleeping state after about one minute which will save you lots of money on electricity. The printer itself runs smooth and the print quality is great. It is also a wireless printer so you can printer from any computer in your house and it will print to one location.
An awesome all in one printer that does all you'll ever need.

Excerpt: I received the Brothers MFC-495CW printer as a gift recently. It is a awesome printer it scan's, takes faxes, Prints documents, prints pictures, you can connect wirelessly, or even use your memory card. I love that I can send documents to my printer wirelessly from anywhere in the house. Its great to have one device do everything versus having 4 different devices taking up space.
Excerpt: THE Bother MFC-495cw IS A MULTI TASK PRINTER, FAX, COPIER, FOTO DEVELOPER,CARD MAKER ECT, ECT THAT COSTS LESS THAN $ 200.00 IT IS WIRELESS ,NETWORK AVAILABILITY, PHOTO CAPTURES,SCANNER, COPIER AND FAX. it is VERY RELIABLE AND SLEFSUFFICIENT. ITS THE BEST ELECTRONIC DEVICE INVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER MAKE. ONE OF ITS CONS IS THAT DEPENDING ON USAGE IT USES INK VERY QUICKLY, IS ITS ONLY DOWN FALL.
Excerpt: I could have never chosen a better printer for the price, quality, and performance! I'm thrilled to have the quality photos, that I share with my family/friends! Since my Brother printer has the all-in-one capacity, I find everything I chose to do on my Brother printer allows me to with simplicity and efficiency! What a great decision I made to have the best I needed!
Excerpt: One of the best features of this printer is that it has wireless capability. It's really nice to be on my laptop in the living room and when I want to print something I don't have to go all the way upstairs to connect my laptop to the printer in order to print. It just sends the item to the printer and then when I am all done with printing I can go get all my printouts at once. Another nice feature is the page loader.
Uses ink to "clean itself" and ink far too expensive.
27 April 2012
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.
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!
