Rating and Reviews

Customer reviews

MFC-J497DW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 812.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Returned for MFC-J895DW review is for the *(% I returned it for the MFC-J895DW. MFCJ895 copies Faster with betterpicture quality and a better warranty. MFC-J497DW is fine for the price but the approximately 40-50 dollar higher price for a better made copi er was worth it. The 895 was Consumer Reports top rated inkjet copier. Brother quality and lifetime consumer support is why I buy brother.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Wonderful so far! So far I am tickled pink with the printer. Really reasonable price, compact, does double sided, scans and copies and easily connected to all my devices wirelessly. It even has a document feeder! A little slower than other more expensive printers I've owned, but for home use, I can wait a few more seconds! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I have only had it for a few months and haven't used it enough yet. However, I have real high hopes that we will be happy for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only printer brand I’ll buy I can always count on Brother printers to be easy to set up and intuitive to use. Wi-fi printing is easy and consistent. Ink cartridges are simple to change.
