Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy to customise for economic use I'd really like a paper-free office, but the next best thing is a printer that does exactly what you want it to - and quickly. For economising on print and paper I like these options in the properties box: duplex, draft, mono and size reduction. For final products the colour print quality is excellent. The scanning and photocopying are fast and can be controlled either at the printer or from a computer. The accompanying PaperPort software has some excellent support for working with images and for sorting files. All together these features give me more control and better organisation whether working with paper or with digital images and documents.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We have had trouble with it from 2nd day of use. On the 2nd day we started to get black specs on our prints. We contacted brother and they told us that it was dust from our location of work, this was not possibble as we run a clean environmnet. After numerous phone calls and emails we were told to clean the rollers with cotton buds, this did not work. Again after phone calls the warranty team sent out a new roller and toner, we got 3 days of use and the problem came back. Again after phone calls they sent out an engineer who cleaned it , we have had 2 weeks worth of use and now the problem is back, and to top it off the remaining toners need replacing, this is not cost effective for us and we are not happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best but not the worst This is a nice compact machine, it sits on the end of a desk and faxes and scans and prints all OK. The downside is it can't duplex scan - or we haven't worked out how. The other downside is that whilst print quality is usually very good, it is prone to spotting. This is caused by the drum unit, but once it starts it is incredibly difficult to stop despite following all cleaning instructions and we end up buying a new drum unit which is very expensive and shouldn't be at the end of its life. It is fiddly and time consuming to clean and should be cleaned every time a new toner is fitted. A bit too high maintenance for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Printer - MFC-9460CDN I was looking for a replacement for a higher-end model (from a competitor) which had come to the end of its lease. Having always found smaller Brother printers great value for money, I thought I would give the "Big Daddy" a chance. I am delighted with the results. THe prints/copies are crisp, clear, and the colours are good. OK so it is not an A3 printer, but that aside, it is "spot on" - AND it cost less than 2 quarters lease payments! The only slight downside is that, although you can increase the capacity of the paper tray, the print output area would struggle to cope, and printing spill out onto the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all rounder I have had this product now for about 6 months and i can not fault it. It is a good work horse and works at the speed of light. I run a small business and the printer gets used regularly every day. For general pictures and word documents then i don't think you would be able to find a better price on such a good product, however, when it comes to printing photo's then i would only rate it 8 out of 10. Maybe my settings are not quite right or even the paper that i was using. Overall, this is one magnificent bit of machinery. Well done Brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capable printer with excellent software I am delighted with this product. It has an excellent software package, enabling true scan-to-email features, for example. (Many printers only allow this when a computer is on.) It is quick, has good print quality (not really photo quality, but you must consider the price! The network features are reliable (more than can be said for certain competitors) and you can set up many defaults for the scan/copy features, speeding up usage of it. My wife uses it as she uses her printer at work, i.e. without problem. That is surely the biggest complement to this printer, it is USABLE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer This is great printer! After some research, it is one of the smallest (albeit it is still quite bulky) and lighter that you can get with all the following features: duplex printing, colour laser, fax and auto-loader scanner. Brother products also offer a great price per page printed. Network configuration worked perfectly in the first trial. There are only two things that could be better: have wireless internet connection and be less noisy. But overall, I'm very happy with the product. One final point: it has never jammed any paper so far (1000 pages printed).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb machine, all our office needs in one place! We purchased the Brother 4 in 1 to replace our seperate and ageing printer, fax and photocopier. The machine is perfect for our small office and costs very little to run. Our previous inkjet models were expensive, dirty and time consuming; the Brother MFC-9460CDN is pretty much plug and play. It took 20 minutes to set up and had us up and running on three machines so easily a child could install it. Overall, very satisfied with the product, would highly recommend this machine to any small / medium business with the requirement to keep costs to a minimum.
