Summary: If you're primarily needing a graphics printer, you'll find better models. But text output is good, and the features set substantial. Throw in the added convenience of the odd A3 document, and the Brother MFC-J4510DW has an awful lot going for it.
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. Hardware.Info tested the printer to find out how this impacts quality and performance.
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 look to Epson or Canon instead.
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.

Brother MFC-J4510DW review - Capable of printing to A3 paper, but the quality isn't the best
8 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. It’s a useful creative feature the others can’t match.
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: Brother feels there's much to crow about with their MFC-J4510DW as it's their smallest ever inkjet all-in-one to offer up to A3 printing and once you take it out the box you can see how many design changes they've made from the standard Brother format. See more printer reviews .
