4 out of 5 eggsStudents, Pick this up!

This review is from: Brother MFC-J450dw 6000 x 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Duplex InkJet MFP Color Printer

Pros: Solid construction, no heat output unless in constant use.
Interesting cable design- cables are inserted within the unit rather than on the outside; power cable is non-removable.
Quiet operation when in use.
Minimal power consumption (when Idle).
Sample Ink Cartridges Included (FOR ALL COLORS).
Bottom slot paper tray can hold 100 pages when inserted; simple to adjust initially.
User interface is fairly simple to navigate.
Driver and firmware support are available online.
Does not create an electrical resonance compared to the LaserJet printers Brother manufactures.
Network support via ethernet and WiFi. Network redundancy on this device is not a bad option to consider.

Cons: The supplied sample ink cartridges have an expiration of 6 months from the initial use. Unless you modify your printing needs, do not expect to print more than 250 pages before replacing them.
The device does NOT ship with a USB cable. I suggest you purchase one if setting up the printer via WiFi or Ethernet is not an option.
WiFi connectivity is not consistent. Even when a static IP is set for the device, power cycling must be done to remap and re-detect it on the network before use.
Copying speeds are very slow.
Document feeder is not strong. It has a tendency to jam with certain paper types.
Power cable does not have a separate grounding pin, which is strange, compared to other Brother devices.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

This review is from: Brother MFC-J450dw 6000 x 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Duplex InkJet MFP Color Printer

Pros: Low price.
Came with starter ink.
Refills not too costly.
Easy install
Made by Brother.

Cons: small paper tray

Other Thoughts: Not enough time using it to test durability. However, it worked great right out of the box. Easy setup and connected right to my wireless.
The paper tray doesn't hold a large stack of paper, so expect to add paper frequently if yo print a lot. I will give it a few runs and see if it warrants a fifth egg.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

This review is from: Brother MFC-J450dw 6000 x 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Duplex InkJet MFP Color Printer

Pros: Was on sale for $55 but after using it would pay $100 with no hesitation.
Love the fact it is wireless and basically stands alone.
Download the Brother Android app and prints from phone or tablet.

Cons: Doesn't make coffee?

Other Thoughts: Was not looking for an all-in-one device but gotta tell ya.. its the only way to fly. Love the task tray icon that will show you ink levels. Ink prices are not too bad either.

This is a great printer and can't be more happy with it. Feel kinda guilty I got it so cheap!

1 out of 5 eggsNot good value at all

This review is from: Brother MFC-J450dw 6000 x 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Duplex InkJet MFP Color Printer

Pros: - Cost of the printer about $70 on sale
- Features – duplex printing WIFI Iphone printing

Cons: • Color quality much duller than the less expensive
inks from the other major manufacturer .
• Frequent paper jams 1 per 20 copies.
• Poor documentation – I can’t view the unprinted Software and Network Users guide on the CD that came with the printer.
• Weaker construction then brand printers had in the past. Lots of rattling while printing.
• Need to use expensive Brother inks.

Other Thoughts: I got tired doling out 70 + dollars for ink refills. One of my friends told be how great the Brother inkjets are and the availability of Brother compatible inks. So this November I brought a Brother MFC-J450DW for my son’s college class that requires some color printing. After 3 unsuccessful tries to find compatible inks I had to pay over
$100 dollars for 1 set Brother LC103 HiYield type inks. That’s more then the HP inks and 6 times the cost of Compatible inks So I lost what ever discount I paid buying the Brother MFC-J450DW.
I would have been satisfied if the less expensive inks had worked – but the
MFC-J450DW was a bad choice for me – I would not recommend it.
