  • Summary: It required 5 times cleaning before it started printing. The alignment wasn't good initially, was corrected after couple of trials.

Love the 11 x 17 paper size option

ladyacenj, Ebay

  • 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.

Som QC issues, but great for the price

Zaphod, Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: I have purchased six of these printers so far for use at construction sites. As far as I know, this is the cheapest multi-function printer that uses 11x17 paper. So far two units have failed - one due to using after market ink - we managed to get it working again with a lot of interior scrubbing...

Brother MFC-6490CW - Delivers

cando5872, Ebay
1 January 2011
  • 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.

Working fine so far

nickn, Amazon
25 November 2010
  • Summary: So far, so good. Had it for 2 months now, and no significant problems. I do admit the reason we bought it is the ability to print 11X17, which it does just fine, once you learn to select tray 2. Automatic tray selection does not work.

Awesome home all-in-one

DIY RB Bob, Amazon
20 September 2010
  • Summary: We've had the Brother MFC-6490CW now for about a year and it is still going strong. It replaced our HP all-in-one that died after about 4-5 years, and I was stoked to find an affordable all-in-one with 11x17 capability! Wow.

Great Price for an 11x17

Kyle Smeby "kyle78", Amazon

  • Summary: While the print quality isn't going to compete with a 6 or 8 ink Epson, you aren't going to find a better deal for a printer (that also scans up to) 11x17 and throws in wireless networking as the icing on the cake.

Works for us

  • Summary: Have not been able to make the printer work in our network, but we just save to a flash drive and plug it into the printer. A bit inconvenient, but works for us.

Love the scanner, printer quality is lacking

Doug Hazlewood "badfinger54", Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: I just returned this to Office Depot. I got it $100 off. I mainly wanted to replace my original HP scanner & printer, neither of which were anything special. They are both starting to get pale lines (or regular patterns in the case of the scanner) in their output.
