Very nice printer
February 4, 2016
By Tech627 from Chicago, IL
I received the MFC-J470DW printer as a replacement for a failed MFC-495CW. The J470DW is fast, crystal clear and an outstanding printer for everyday printing of color and b&w docs. It scans and copies very well and the Control Center 4 software is easy to use and very useful! I really like the printer. The only disappointing thing is it doesn't have an Ethernet jack on it so it can be plugged directly into a switch or router but that is very minor considering the wireless seems to work very well.

First Brother printer

By Lakeeffect from New York
Appears to be good quality. Had problems with printer going off line. Deleted software and re-loaded (had to do this twice) with updated software problem corrected. Owners manual not very clear.

Good Value for the Cost
February 2, 2016
By MyKidzRK9s from Columbus, OH
I haven't had the opportunity to fully explore this all-in-one printer but do have some observations to offer. As color inkjet printers go, this unit was purchased to replace a 10-year-old HP laser printer (which really stood the test of time). Having the option to copy, scan, fax and print in color was a much-needed step for my home office. Setting up wi-fi was relatively uncomplicated. A recent change to my home internet wi-fi setup caused some minor setbacks but a call to Brother's help center resolved the difficulties and allowed me to reset the system.

I have two suggestions for improvements to the unit. Feeding envelopes for printing is cumbersome. Currently, you must remove the paper tray, extract the paper and load only the envelope(s). The fact that the feeder guides must be adjusted but are located UNDER the paper guides makes this labor intensive. My HP had the envelope feeder guides located on TOP of the paper tray, and didn't require these extra steps. The other suggestion I would make to the overall design of this unit is to backlight some or all of the action buttons adjacent to the LCD window. They're currently small, black and imprinted with grey lettering. Only the Exit and Color buttons have colored identifiers (red and green respectively). My senior eyes have trouble even reading the lettering. And because my all-in-one is located on a lower shelf, I struggle to see them clearly anyway.

Need all ink colors to print black and white
February 1, 2016
By Jobo4 from Bronx, NY
On this printer you need all the color ink to print in black and white only. You cannot temp remove a color, the machine will not recognize it again and you will need to replace it, even if over half full.
