Brother MFC all in one printer is versatile.

HLJBESQUIVEL, Viewpoints

  • 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!

Love the 11 x 17 paper size option

  • 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.

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. 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: 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.

Great Printer & always Check Ink Prices before any Purc

ray3820, Ebay

  • Summary: Until recently, I was an HP Printer fan for many years. Last year, I bought an HP Color Laserjet -only to subsequently find out that HP had put a chip for every color in the printer which only allowed customer to use about 60% of the ink in the cartridge! It then would tell you that you're out of ink and to get a replacement shortly. I found out from a tech guy that all their chips and their electronic eye can be overridden.

  • Excerpt: Wireless to receive orders from your computer. Copy, fax, photo capture and scan are all works good. The only lack is if your paper is not even or too thick, it stucks. Every fuctions are working good. The color performs okay, but I think it depend on the paper quality. The scanner scans two steps. If you want to copy something, you need to wait until the scanner finished scaning. The color of inks this brand is not performace well.
