Excerpt: When I purchased my Brother all in one printer, I was pretty excited at what it can do. Copying, Faxing, and printing are easy! I love that this printer has a wireless feature because my husband and I are usually on our laptops simultaneously. There is no need to plug in your lap top. I love being on one side of the house and printing wirelessly on the other. THe printer also has a feature where you can scan images to your e-mail, or directly to a file on your computer!
Pros: Bought this machine and was very happy with it. 1st, it was so easy to set up; 2nd, it has wireless printing!; 3rd, it has nice print quality; 4th, it handles A3 printing well; 5th, it is relatively quiet; 6th, the cartridges come in high yield.
Cons: Only con is it does not recognize the sizes of paper. You have to manually set it each time.
Summary: This is a great printer. Purchased it so I can print my own menus on 11 x 17 paper. Easy to use and the print quality is excellent. I love the 11 x 17 option. The only problem I had was the ink drying out on the ink heads inside the printer behind the cartridges. I googled a solution. If the printer is not used everyday it can dry and clog up. By dabbing a q-tip with ammonia on the ink head it unclogged it right away. The auto cleaning didnt work and neither did alcohol.

Summary: This printer has all the features needed for an office, fax, scann, print, copy. It has wireless ability, so it can be placed anywhere without wiring. The paper sizes are covering all up to ledger size.
Summary: I have been using my new Brother MFC-6490CW for several weeks. It was important to me to see what the interactivity was before I wrote a review. Well - I am very pleased with the ease with which I am able to fax, print and copy my documents. What was especially gratifying was the ease with which the scanner operates. I create several types of cards and this was especially important to me.
Summary: I work from home and I LOVE this product....I can use it anywhere in my home, and I love that when scanning from the printer I have the ability to choose which computer to scan to and I am able to scan wirelessly. I like that it has individual color cartridges like my other Brother MFC printer before this. It is a major step up and I feel it was the best and most economical (if you look really hard you can buy 10 ink cartridges for [$] vs. [$] in stores!).
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Reliable
Summary: Generally seems to be an all-around good unit at a reasonable price. The built-in ledger sized scanner is rare and it is what makes this a unique value. It is too bad that the built-in scanner isn't just a smidgen wider. Then one could use it to scan their old LP record album covers that they are converting to CDs.
