EASY TO SET UP
I bought this for home use and was concerned how easy it would be to set up as a network printer. Basically all I had to do was to connect it up and run the CD. Well done this is the easiest machine so set up I have ever had. It also does every thing I need it to do with scanning as I scan a number of documents, I am extremely pleased with this.

One of my better buys.
I've always had relatively cheap, though top brand name, inkjet printers at home. I wanted to have duplex printing for all the reports I write for my job, and I wanted to get away from inkjet cartridges that cover my hands with ink and always run out just when I'm in a hurry to print something. All of the Mac people I sought advice from recommended Brother. However, I felt I couldn't really justify the higher cost of a colour laser duplex printer.
I slowly homed in on an MFC-9460CDN, and then was a bit daunted by a review that said this might be overkill for a small home user. How wrong that was! After a lot of dithering I finally took the plunge and invested in the MFC-9460CDN. It has been a treat to use: in its totally silent sleep mode (1 watt power consumption, I think) it sits inconspicuously in the corner, springing into life when I want it.
The print quality is superb for all my purposes: mainly text, which is very clear and precise. Even photographs on plain paper are quite passable—I guess they'll be much better when I get photographic paper.
One small niggle (and really the only one) is that printing on envelopes involves reaching around the back of the machine, opening a cover, and moving two levers. The back of my machine is up against a wall! However, the envelopes seem to print perfectly well anyway, so I don't bother.
In short: I'm very pleased with this printer.

A good all-round office printer
Ideal for a small office, this printers functions are all that you need. It is not the fastest nor the slowest but print quality is good and it is easy to set up and easy to use. Consumables are mid range price. It is quite big but comparible to its counterparts and a little noisy in operation but you get used to that. Overall I would recommend this to any small/medium size business for everyday printing.

mfc colour laser
its quite heavy , but very easy to setup, follow the instructions don't try any shortcuts you may miss some packing otherwise, networking is so simple and print quality is great, not brilliant for pics but then there is some setup to be done and I haven't got around to that yet as a machine its very quite and simple to use
yes I recommend it

Good small office network printer / Fax
all round good as a networked printer in our small office. we needed to cut down on the amount of printers and different ink cartridges. the mfc-9460 seamed to fit the bill. the toners seem very expensive but when comparing print volumes against different printers it should work out cheaper.
overall we are satisfied with the performance up to date.
