Great on features and format size, but poor results

Ben, Amazon
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.

Not set up for PEOPLE to use

T. Bender, Amazon
11 September 2010
  • 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.

Poor Horizontal Line Quality in Faster Modes

David Gurgel, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • 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.

Does not print single envelopes

Bruce Bellwood "Loan Pro", Amazon
22 February 2009
  • 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.

good product but eats ink

Matt Gilbert "Investment Guru", Amazon
17 February 2009
  • 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.

Good for 11X17, but falls short in other areas

Audiophile Guy, Amazon
2 February 2009
  • 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.

Nice idea but poor color saturation

Kathleen Karsko "47 states", Amazon
20 November 2008
  • 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.

Un po' scomoda...

MorenoM, Ciao
4 October 2012
  • 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.

Une imprimante multifonctions A3

Klama, Ciao
7 November 2011
  • 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: Multifonctions A3, pas cher
  • Cons: Mauvaise qualité couleur
