Work connected, always

You don’t just need to be sat at your desk, or even near the printer to use the MFC-J4540DWXL. With the range of connectivity options available, you can print anywhere in your house or office – and even from your mobile phone through the Wi-Fi, or NFC. By downloading the Brother Mobile Connect app you can access an array of features – from sending print jobs, to checking your ink levels and ordering replacement supplies when necessary.

Keep on top of your ink useage, quickly and easily

We’ve reengineered our ink cartridges to hold more ink and created an internal ink storage tank that delivers more pages of uninterrupted printing without sacrificing the compact, desktop size. Also, thanks to the page gauge feature you can check remaining ink levels on your LCD display to help avoid interrupted printing.


More capacity, more paper control

The MFC-J4540DWXL comes with an extra paper tray – this means that as well as replacing ink less, the need to replace paper in the device is also reduced. With this, comes more control over how you use your time to be as productive as possible.

Your workplace may be at home but that should not mean print quality should be compromised. With the MFC-J4540DWXL you can expect print quality of the highest order, at quick, hassle-free speeds. Additionally, with the MFC-J4540DW’s simple to use 6.8cm LCD touchscreen, navigating tasks has never been easier.

Scanning technology to improve work flow, even when working remotely

  • Image
  • File
  • OCR
  • Email

Customer Reviews

MFC-J4540DWXL is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fast and clear Two months ago after having done a lot of research I bought this Brother printer. It is so fast! There are so many utilities that I have yet to explore them all and I can hardly wait to start. I found it a bit tricky to install the software but managed at the end. I am very pleased with this printer. It is a bit noisier that what I was hoping for but still acceptable. I am one happy cu

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Home Office Printer I'm really impressed with this printer, I've never owned a Brother printer before and when I was given the chance to "test drive" one I leapt at the chance. As I work from home I need a printer that is reliable and with good print quality, so far this ticks those boxes. Installing the print cartridges is so easy and the set up is straight forward using the mobile app. Print speed is really good, so far it seems very economical on ink too. Having two paper trays is a useful feature too. Scanning and copying are good too, these can be controlled by the app or on the printer's touch screen. There are nice little touches such as the fold out paper catchers, for the scanner and printer functions, which if you are using them tuck neatly away. Overall I'm really happy with this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I was really excited to be chosen to test this printer. It came in a very bulky box but the machine itself is not too big and heavy. It has all the functions I can ever think of. I placed it in the utility room but I can access it from all rooms in the house. It is very Quite and print speed is fast. I would really recommend it. I have now used it for over 2 weeks now and it is very much exceed my expectations. The touch screen is easy to use and the inkjet is durable as i have printed out a few hundred pages now but the colors are still crisp. Defintely good value for money. I also like it as it is very quite and I keep it under the stairs so not taking up desk space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good office helper I have received printer Brother MFC-J4540DW XL to review it. First impressions are really good, printer is wireless and it was easy and fast to set it up. Printer has two paper trays for 400 pages, it has high ink capacity, touchscreen interface and it is 4 in 1 printer so you can print, copy, scan and fax in one place. Printing quality is great, it is really fast when you print bigger amount of papers and double sided printing is real paper and money saver. Scanning is easy as well I did not have any issues with it. I printed around 200 pages since beginning and did not have any paper jams issues. Really great buddy to your office which I use it daily and can say that work properly. I definitely recommend it to small businesses which are looking for reliable and fast 4 in 1 printers to their offices or home offices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job The first thing you notice about this printer is it's quite heavy and cumbersome, which is not a bad thing because it means it well built and quite sturdy, ideal for business use. The wifi was a bit fiddly to set up, it wouldn't recognise my network so had to do it manually which was no hassle for me, but might be for some. The NFC function worked a lot better allowing me to print via my Huawei android mobile via the app. The ink tanks were very easy to install, shake a couple of times, open the flap on the front and slot them in on and they were surprisingly large too. It then takes about five minutes to get the ink ready after that you are good to go. The printing is quite sharp as you'd expect from a modern printer and quite quick without making a lot of noise. I have been using this printer for a couple of weeks now and it hasn't let me down and the ink seems to be lasting quite well. I have printed out a couple of pictures but these are not as sharp as documents, but I didn't really expect too much anyway. This printer comes with two trays for paper which is a good idea, no filling up the paper trays all the time. Scanning is quite easy like on other printers and takes just as long, but the quality is really good, the only problem could be if you have big fingers or clumsy it might be difficult to operate the little led screen. Overall this printer is good for what it's intended to do and feels sturdy enough that it will last a long time. The big ink cartridges are a plus, seeing other printers are using tanks and seem to last a long time. It's quiet enough and I had no problems with any paper jams or two sheets coming through at once. If you are looking for a printer for your home office or small business this will do the job for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super stylish printer I've had a Brother black and white printer for years now and wanted to upgrade to a new colour printer. The MFC-J4540DW is the printer that I have received to test. I have to say that this printer is super stylish. It's the perfect size for a home office. I also noticed that the paper capacity is large and it will not need to be replaced often. I also love that you can see ink levels on your LCD display which will be great as I start to use it more. The printer prints really fast and the quality is amazing. I found it easy to set up though wireless was a little tricky. Overall, this is really a super upgrade from my old brother printer and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far So GOOD! Print Print Print ! My first impressions of BROTHER mfc-j4540dw Printer is that it is exceptionally efficient. It looks the part. And does the business. Quality of print is amazing, and it's faster than Mr Bolt !. Will keep you guys posted as time goes in but I have no complaints whatsoever on the quality and ease of this printer. Took me seconds to set up. The lcd ouch screen is very easy to use and see. As for the App, it is very user friendly and I took me seconds to connect my mobile and my laptop to it in order to scan and print over WiFi. I have also tested the on screen functionality by linking my Google drive to the printer which allowed me to print photos from the printer directly! Talk about future tech! So convenient.
