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.

Great Machine. EXCELLENT Price!

By 

from Warren, NJ, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

Works beyond expectations, for the most part. Wireless is an absolute pleasure to use and configure. Only glitch - sometimes this machine does not talk to other fax machines. This seems to be a problem with these things, no matter what brand.

Good but a little inconsistent

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

The J460DW works well for me most of the time. I only use the print and copy because I never fax anything. The scanner has worked once but now gives me the message that it's not connected to my PC. Twice now the printer has given me the message that the printer is offline and I have to go to my devices page and enter the printer IP to get the darned thing reconnected to my computer. I have never had this problem with any of my previous printers (Canon, HP and Brother). I don't believe for a second that I am screwing something up. The printer is just a little flakey. I'm going to start working on the scanner function today.

Terrible Printer Will NEVER Buy Another Brother

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

This printer is terrible and I'm ready to throw it out my window and run it over with my car. I only ever print in black and white, however recently for whatever reason the printer can no longer detect my yellow cartridge. Shouldn't be a big deal right since I only print in black and white? Nope. The printer is now completely unusable because of this. Every time I try to print it gives me an error. I have selected Black and white in my printer settings, I've tried different yellow ink cartridges but the printer refuses to recognize them and will not print anything until it does. I honestly can't believe how dumb this design is. Why should a yellow cartridge effect my ability to print in black and white? I will NEVER under any circumstance buy another Brother product again. I believe the printer was intentionally designed like this to make people buy new printers, ink cartridges, extended support etc. If you are considering Brother I would look somewhere else.

THE BEST

By 

from South Carolina, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

It have been using Brother products for many many years. I love the quality of work the products put out, right now I have an all in one printer, scanner, fax, copier. The over all functions are very easy to use and the manual is easy to follow. I refuse to use anything other than a Brother All in One. I also have a Brother sewing machine that I use because I find the products very easy to use and the I love the quality of the finished product. Keep up the good work Brother.!!!!!!!!!

only one problem

By 

from undisclosed

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

this scans well, However I wish it would scan a small picture and then erase all the room around it in the final product. I had to buy another scanner for fotos that does that. . ALso, finding the controls too a long time. If I scan via the controls on the front it only does PDF. I have to scan via the controls on the computer monitor to make it do Jpegs. ALso it jams all the time. THe paper on my last Brother scanner/printer did not have to be so perfect and the paper reservoir did not have to be completely full to run. I can barely get 5 pieces of paper to print before it jams.

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

If yoiu are looking for a cheap machine for home use where you do not require speed, or minium performance, then this works for that. I am not pleased with this model, planning to return. Too slow, cannot receive scans consistently, just too cheap & clunky for this real estate girl...

Highly versatile unit

By 

from Albuquerque, NM, United States

Comments about Brother Work Smart MFC-J460DW Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper Print - Desktop:

I only use the unit for home but can see it would be of great benefit in the office also. Unit was packaged very well, set up took only a few moments and the unit was up and running. I have had older models but enjoy the wireless feature of this one. I have used it almost daily for 3 months, no problems or glitches. Highly recommend this unit for home or office.
