Great on features and format size, but poor results
2 November 2010
Summary: I purchased the Brother MFC6490 for it's 11x17 scanner and printer sizing for comic book/graphic novel illustration work. I love the size and features of the 6490 but the scanner simply could not reproduce my pencil lines as well as my older and less expensive Canon scanner.
Summary: Technical performance OK. Really enjoy the wireless. Got it because I needed an 11x17. Somehow (?) got it set up. But is it a pain in the XXX to use. There is a raised black lip on two sides of the scan bed, which crushes oversized drawings you're trying to scan.
Summary: I was disappointed with the print quality. Long, black, horizontal lines under data entry cells on an 11x17 data center operators' log were jagged in "Fast Normal" mode. "Normal" mode got rid of the jaggies with a considerable slow-down.
Summary: In order to print an envelope you must remove the paper from the paper tray and adjust the paper guides. A cumbersome process. Most printers have an envelope printing slot. This printer does not.
Summary: this product took me all of 10 minutes to set up on my wireless network. It's a little big but I suppose that's the price you pay for 17" printing capability. I've owned Brother products for 12 years and never had an issue. Ditto w/this one. EXCEPT - it eats ink like nobodies business.
Summary: Hi all, Recently bought the brother to replace an HP AIO 7310 that died a rather unseemly death. (The carriage engine died resulting in being unable to use the entire machine, HP errors disables all other features = retarded.
Summary: In testing this printer I discovered that the sharpness greatly diminishes when enlarging past 130%. Color saturation in general copies is poor for reds (looks very faded) and yellow wasn't very bright. The paper tray capacity is great but the top piece is very flimsy.
Summary: Questa è la stampante che abbiamo nel nostro ufficio e che ormai ha già da un paio di anni. E' una stampante multifunzione con la quale è possibile sia fare fotocopie, sia scannerizzare documenti sia inviare fax. Ha quindi le predisposizioni per essere collegata alla linea telefonica.
Summary: Personnellement, j'ai acheté ce produit car j'avais besoin d'une imprimante multifonctions (fax, scanner, copieur noir et blanc, copieur couleur) qui puisse imprimer en format A3. C'est Brother qui semble avoir eu la bonne idée de combiner l'ensemble de ses fonctions sur un seul produit.
Pros: buena operativa., práctica de manejo y de resoluciòn de problemas
Cons: algo lenta sobre todo en color, el escaneo no tiene medidas diferenciadas de ajuste de la foto, ademas de zoom sería interesante que tuviera ajuste personalizado, no se importa mas, manual en inglés-
