Not Happy
July 17, 2014
By weaver007 from Grangeville, ID
I have bought several Epson printers over the past couple of decades, and always been really happy with them. The BOSS bought this Brother printer without my input. Though the copies themselves are very good, I do not like the cheap construction or the paper tray method of loading versus being accessible and fed through the rear (as with Epson). The paper loading tray isn't easy to deal with, and you have to pull it out to feed a 2-sided copy---inconvenient. Also, the head cleans after EVERY copy is made; this has to unnecessarily eat up ink. I would not buy another Brother printer.

I cannot give a good review yet as I recently found a couple of difficult situations that I will explore first.
I will do the review later if possible.

I Bought 2 of These
July 15, 2014
By ClovisKen from Clovis, CA
I bought 2 of these, one for home and one for our vacation home. Both were easy to set up for iPad and iPhone. I have had difficulty getting them set up for my windows laptops, however.

The new units replaced another Brother unit, MFC-J410W. That unit, after some difficulty setting it up with the laptops, worked flawlessly. The scanning interface was particularly easy to use. I had to replace this unit with the two new units because it was not compatible with my new iPad and iPhone.

The scanner interface for the MFC-J470DW (Control Center 4) is not, in my opinion, as user friendly or intuitive as the previous version. I just upgraded one of my laptops to Windows 8.1, and now I cannot scan from the laptop.

All of the other features of the MFC-J470DW work well for my needs. Just wish they were easier to set up for Windows and wish they had the previous scanner interface (Control Center 3).

These Brother machines are economical to purchase and they don't seem to use a lot of ink, so they are economical to maintain.
