Brother MFC-J430W Review

Tech2
11 May 2012
  • Summary: The MFC-J430W by Brother is a great AIO option for those who need speedy document printing, good quality photos. It's a compact AIO with wireless networking abilities at an economical price making it even more attractive. Of course the fact that it lacks a PictBridge port and card reader slot does put a dampner on things; however, on the whole, the product is nevertheless worth the money.

  • Cons: Feathering on bolded text; Colours in graphics and photos are a little washed out.

Brother MFC-J430w All-in-One Inkjet Printer

MacWorld
8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: For a printer that retails for only $130, the Brother MFC-J430w gets things done in a hurry: Text pages print at a brisk 7.6 pages per minute or faster. Other strengths include sharp text output and below-average ink costs, if you stick with the high-capacity supplies. You get some nice features for the price, but note that colour graphics quality is merely adequate, paper capacity is minimal and automatic two-sided printing or scanning is non-existent.
  • Pros: Average or better speed; high-capacity inks are economical
  • Cons: No automatic duplexing

  • Summary: This is a multi function unit (it has fax) and it can connect either by USB or Wi-Fi. In fact I used both with equal success. I did however have a failure as no matter what I tried it refused to feed photo paper in any way.
