MFC-J497DW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 913.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great home all-in-one Easy to setup good intuitive software. Sits discretely in our home lights off, wakes up completes its task and falls asleep again. Brilliant no fuss great prints, copies etc. Such a tremendous improvement over the printer it replaced, looks better too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Internet Connection The printer works fine when hard wired, but using it wirelessly is frustrating. The wireless connection to my laptop works fine so far, but the printer will not connect to my desktop. Also, when using your support via a chat was frustrating and unsuccessful. Perhaps you could offer a technical person to answer telephone calls and walk a customer through the process to make the wireless printer work. My reason for buying this printer was to eliminate wires, not add to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer I have owned several different kinds of printers and this is by far the best one I've ever had

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything well. This printer does everything that is needed for home use. It is not extremely fast, but for most of us at home that is not a factor. Copies and printed material are clean and easy to see, and the scanner works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Druckt nicht am 6.märz 2019 gekauft,aber der Brother hat mich enttäuscht

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Brother Printer Always wanted a decent Brother Printer Didn't want a run of the mill Epson, Canon or HP printer, products which I loathe Only problem was finding the required Brother printer in stock anywhere as they seem to have been in short supply since lockdown and most supppliers availability only on back order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features & Easy To Operate This is my second Brother Multi-function printer. My previous Brother printer still works but is over 7 years old and showing its age. I had such good luck and dependability with my first Brother printer I wanted to replace with a newer one.. I purchased my previous Brother printer on the recommendation of my Computer Service Person and and that was great advise. My first printed I own was another major brand and it only lasted 3 years. I am sold on the dependability of Brother printers.
