Excerpt: With the MFC-J4510DW, Brother has created an inkjet all-in-one that it sells under the Print 3.0 header. One of the trademarks of this concept is that the paper is transported under the print heads in landscape mode, instead of the traditional portrait mode.
Conclusion: While this is called Business Smart, it doesn’t have the paper capacity for a busy office, and no one’s going to want to feed 11x17 pages into the back one at a time. If you’re only printing spreadsheets and emails, the quality might not bug you, but for anything more than that, you might want to...
Pros: Easy setup. Small footprint. Can print from and scan to Flickr, Google Docs, and Picasa. AirPrint, Google Cloud print, and a dedicated iOS app. Ink tanks last forever. Print speed is decent. Inputs for SD card, MemoryStick, and USB thumb drives.
Cons: So-so print quality with muddy text and dull images. Can’t used wired and wireless connections at once. Build quality feels flimsy. Passthrough slot only takes one sheet at a time. Unhelpful error messages.
Conclusion: Deciding to give the Brother MFC-J4510DW our Editors’ Choice award was a near-run choice. But since we give cost per page a lot of weight in our evaluations, that tipped it to the winning side.
Pros: Low per-page ink cost, Compact, yet supports wide-format printing, Excellent touch-input display, Supports direct printing from above-average range of memory cards/devices
Cons: Printing speeds are a bit sluggish, Photo print quality a minor step behind competing midrange models
Brother MFC-J4510DW review - Capable of printing to A3 paper, but the quality isn't the best
9 May 2013
Excerpt: Printers that can handle A3 paper understandably tend to be big beasts, but Brother has hit on a novel solution: flip the A4 tray around by 90 degrees. By loading the paper sideways, the MFC-J4510DW’s print area is wide enough to handle an A3 sheet fed in manually when required.
The Brother MFC-J4510DW can print on A3 paper, but the quality falls behind the best
Too expensive to buy, no Mountain Lion driver in the box, average print quality
Excerpt: At a glance, the MFC-J4510DW is clearly a departure for Brother. While hardly gorgeous, it's a much smarter and more attractive design than is typical of Brother’s MFPs. It's also the first printer we've reviewed that feeds A4 paper in a landscape orientation, the purpose of which is to facilitate...
Pros: Fast text printing, Photo printing pretty good, A3-capable, Small footprint, Colour touchscreen, The Brother MFC-J4510DW feeds its A4 paper sideways, printing across the portrait-orientated page instead of the more common landscape printing. This useful innovation means it can print on A3 paper t...
Cons: One A3 sheet at a time, Scanner and ADF A4 only, Plain paper images poor, Doesn't match top all-in-ones, The Brother MFC-J4510DW's overall print quality is workmanlike, and frequently fails to match the standards set by market-leading inkjet printers. Although entirely serviceable, its text print...
