I chose this printer based on price, customer reviews, and ink cost, plus I've been printing all my black-white copies with a Brother laser printer. I'm female and setup was easy. It's fax-capable, wireless-capable, and can print from a cellphone app, but I do not use those features for now. I used a USB cable for better reliability (if my internet service hiccups, I can still print, wheee!). The location of the USB input was inside this printer, a bit weird but perhaps they were thinking if I tripped on the cord, the only damage would be to me versus the print job :) A nice surprise during setup is the location of the ink cartridges: they are the easiest-to-access of any printer I've owned, right in front! I do mostly matte-type color printing for cartoon-y color posters, flannelboard figures, and fancy nametags. I'm thrilled with the color quality (as compared to my Canon MG5320 that developed "terminal" issues), but since THE COLOR PRINTING IS INDEED SLOW (as all user reviews have indicated), I will have to finish printing projects sooner and begin printing them sooner in order to meet my deadlines. BLACK-WHITE PRINTING IS FASTER than the color printing by far with this printer. I like all the print job adjustments and pre-set choices built into this printer. I print photos once a year and will see how it handles semi-gloss. I like that I can adjust scan resolution, as I was stuck with a default setting with my previous Canon model. For higher resolution, I had to use my HP4010 slide scanner - a bit of a hassle. Here's another "quirk:" in the middle of a job (example: ten 8x11 matte color prints) this printer pauses for a cooldown. This means I need to allow more time for print jobs in case if this occurs, which is OK with me, but perhaps not OK with someone considering to purchase this printer. It has an ink save mode for printing that is worthless; however, the only time I need that feature is for black ink, and I do not use this printer for B/W printing. I will revise this review if problems develop with this printer.

After our local computer center recommended this Brother printer we purchased it. We had problems connecting it to our Apple iPhones, iPad and mini iPad. The problem was these devices could be wirelessly connected and I could successfully print from each device. When I tried to print later in the day from these devices each device would have to search for the printer and when it couldn't find it I received a message stating that no airprinter could be found. I removed the brother app and reloaded it again on each device, no luck. All devices and the printer were on the same network. I then contacted Brother via email and received instructions as well as calling Brother and speaking to someone in your software department. Followed those instructions. The same thing happened. I could connect to the devices but then lost the connection. I tried to connect them manually using thr IP address. No luck. I know the printer is working as it prints from our desk top and lap top wirelessly with no problem. I had our computer person come out to the house to see what I was doing wrong. He disconnected, unloaded and started all over again. Same problem. I have no idea what to do next other than purchase another printer that is comparable with Apple products and will allow me to print from any Apple device from anywhere in our home without having to reconnect the wireless connection.

Good product

By 

from Washington, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

So far, I am very pleased with my new Brother printer. Although, it took a minute to get connected initially, once connected, it has been very reliable and trouble free. I have had HP printers, but the ink was overly expensive and they were not always reliable in terms of keeping a connection. This was a very good buy.

Affordable wireless all in one

By 

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

Economical all in one printer with affordable print cartridges. Easy wireless setup and printer cartridge installation. Two sided printing option per page saves paper. Printing from Apple devices is fast, printing from windows devices is nominal. Print quality is acceptable but could be sharper.

Great multi-function, compact, inexpensive product

By 

from Peoria, IL, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

I don't know how they did it, but this product out preforms the one I was replacing. A gift to my little brother, he needed one to print, copy, etc. for our parents. I knew it worked well and the ink was vastly less expensive than competitors, that was the reason I gave it to them to use. I was hoping my replacement would be as good. It was better. If you need a great inexpensive multi-purpose machine, the Brother MFC-J460DW is the perfect product. Scale of 1 to 10, it is a strong 10.

Poor directions

Slow printer

By 

from Dobson NC

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

It can scan and fax and communicate wirelessly with computers. Picture quality is good. If he printed faster I'd be very happy. Original black cartridge that came with printer did not produce the advertise pages. Perhaps it's a partly felt original equipment cartridge. So I hope.

Nice Quality, Solid Feature Set

By 

from Chesapeake, VA, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

This is a very nice printer for the price range. After years of printers with unreliable paper feeds I can appreciate that this model actually has a bin for paper and the feeder works well. Picture quality is excellent, scanning and printing speed is faster than I thought it would be (simple text documents are done within a few seconds). The only 'con' I'd mention is the physical setup: you have to open the unit, plug in the cord on the inside, and lay it along a groove -- not difficult but instructions could be clearer. There is also a "dash" option for automatically ordering inks as the old ones run low, but I haven't used that yet. Overall this is a fine printer and I hope to be using it for years to come.

It works! and wirelessly, too!

By 

from Austin, TX, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

My Desktop and my wife's laptop can both print wirelessly. Also our smartphone can print to it wirelessly. Scanning is tedious, but the app is fairly complete and well thought out. After about a month of ownership, there rewmains plenty of ink!

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

I purchased the device a few months ago and already need tech support three times! As of now it is still not functioning correctly. I may consider in having it replaced with a similar device, if offered by Briother!.

Great printer for the price. works great with my wireless devices. A nice surprise upon setting up that the face plate (keyboard etc.) pulls up to a 45 degree. As printer is placed on lower shelf.

Print quality is great. Easy to set up and use. Customer service is excellent. Only issue I have is that it prints in slo-mo. Takes forever to print anything.

Ridiculously Slow!

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Color Inkjet All-in-One, Copy/Fax/Print/Scan:

set up was easy enough but printing one-side only in black took over a munute. Same text document....no pictures, graphics or charts---took 3.5 minutes in two-sided mode. Bought this to replace HP4620; at least that unit printed three times as fast!
