This review is from: Brother MFC-6490CW A3 Multifunction Printer with Scan/Copy/Fax , Network, Wireless and 3.3 inch Colour LCD (Electronics)
Not exactly a fan of Brother products before I bought this product (9 months ago), but I needed an A3 printer, fax, scanner for my business and this fitted the bill. Very good lifespan from cartridges and (non-original) replacements available on Amazon (from Ink Cartridge King) for just £1.50 each after postage... so bye bye Hewlett Packard! I cane this item with the amount of printing I do, and I've never used a scanner as much as I do now as the document feeder makes it so easy. Occasional misfeeds from the paper trays can be annoying (if you haven't fanned the paper thoroughly before loading) but that's the only bad point. Print quality is excellent (with original or non-original cartridges) and pretty fast. Scanner seems good but can't say I've ever had enough experience of scanning to comment in detail. Colour copying is not superbly accurate with colours being a little washed out, but at the price this printer sits at, what can you expect... go spend 6K on a professional Konica or Minolta copier if that's what you want. Again, document feeder is superb, making copying and faxing single or bundles of pages a breeze. I've been very happy with the product so far and have become so reliant on it I've just splashed out on a second one as backup (and to take over when I finally kill this one through overworking it - not that it's showing any signs of any problems whatsoever) - so that sums it up really.
Great product, and especially good value for the less than £160 I paid for it. Recommended!
