Rated 5 out of 5 by from MFC5490CN exellant product this is the second Brother printer i have purchased over the years and would never buy anything else, the printer was so easy to install with no disruptions to my businness. it is so easy to set up and use with brilliant printing speed and quality.The copy function is also great along with the fax aswell. Replacing the ink cartridges are so easy to replace my small children could do it. Overall brilliant first class product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, value for money multifunction machine I have purchased 4 of these machines over the past few years for myself and some of my Clients. All of them give good quality, speedy prints, are economical with ink and good quality scanning/copying facilities. Don't use the fax much, but it works well when I do. Head and shoulders above other, more expensive machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from workhorse I like this because it does pretty much all I want for my home office in 1 box. It could do with a bypass feed for putting letterheads or labels through but thats about the only downer. Quality and value for money overall very good

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It does NOT do what is on the box This printer does NOT SCAN A3 as implied on the box but does do excellent prints. Good engineering and if you can do without the A3 scanning feature it is a good piece of engineering as it does everything for A4
