Excerpt: I've purchased this Brother MFC-5460CN as a refurb with rebates. It's a nifty device, pretty convenient, especially with the document feeder. I'm mainly using it as a scanner, being able to scan directly to a CF / SD / MS / XD card is nice. I just have an old 32M CF card plugged in and use it to transfer the scanned pdf / jpg to my computer. It does have an email-sending option, but never got to setting that up.
Excerpt: I bought a Brother MFC 5460CN Printer a few years ago. It was okay, but I was never satisfied with print quality - especially on pictures - so many lines & off-color. And it was always having paper jams. A few months ago the paper tray jammed - a spring. Then it quit printing black. I called the company & they said the heads were clogged because I wasn't using name brand cartridges.
Excerpt: The Brother MFC-5460CN is one of, if not-the, best all around multifunction printers I have ever used. You can hook it up directly to you computer or if you have a Small Office or Home Office it has a LAN/Ethernet port built into it to use on a network. Setup is very easy with this unit. It is mainly just a install easy to use software, turn on printer and start using it. It takes up little space on your desktop. It is frugal on ink if used on the lower ink settings.
Excerpt: This is a good all around printer. I have HP , Canon and Epson printers but this is by far the cheapest as far and ink cost. Third party ink works very well and does great photos. There is a card reader and options to print thumbnail previews. Have not had and problems yet and don't anticipate any. Unless you let is powered on it tends to clean print heads each use and this can be time consuming if your in a rush. It is not the fastest printer but the print quality...
Excerpt: This multi-function machine does OK. It can scan, print, fax, copy. My real problem with it has been the quality of the color copies. We were using a laser printer & moved that into the main office. I mainly use this Brother for home/home office use, but some business use also. The color (and text) prints that I get from this machine looks very washed out & faded. This has just been paper documents & labels- I don't know how it would do photos but I definitely...
Good price and cheap ink third party cartridges. Document feeder
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This a good All in one printer. Although I have different printers I mainly use this one because of the cheap ink prices. There are a lot of third part ink cartridges on the net and are often on sale. I can often buy the five cartridges for around $5 all together with free shipping. I recommend the high capacity ones that last longer. What I like about this printer is that you don't have to have the computer on to copy or send faxes.
Excerpt: This product I have had for over a year and a half I would say. So far, the product has lasted, it is very efficient and user Friendly. This printer in my home is pretty much used on daily bases, I use it for school work, my father uses it for his work, so it's used alot. This product can print documents in back and white or in color, it can send or receive faxes, and it can scan copies of documents or even scan an image of the document to the computer.
Excerpt: I, myself, am not very computer savvy, or printer savvy at that. This is pretty self-explanatory. My mother uses it at work, and I have used it myself several times. Scanning does a pretty decent job. The coloring is a little off, I think so. When scanning to the desktop, it comes out okay, but scanning and printing that scan seems a little off. Faxing is fine. Faxing is what I use it the MOST for, and never have issues - but that just means the internet...
