Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I want Purchased this to replace a printer that had stopped feeding paper through (not a Brother). The paper capacity and feed on this is excellent. Set-up was straight forward and easy. I also like the ability to copy multiple sheets using the document feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup Easy to set up either wired or wireless. Software a little slow to install, but everything works, just give it time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenuous ideas in one compact and easy to use printer The size and way it prints is simple but clever. You load the A4 paper in landscape (normal printers are loaded portrait) so saves so much space as the paper tray don't stick out and the body of the printer is small. This will also print upto A3 one at a time (manually loading the paper) which is fine for my business. It also has fax functions (will not use this myself), scan and copy which makes this a all in one printer. I have this connected wirelessly and i have not had any issues at all. Simple and easy to install on both windows and Mac computers. I would recommend this product to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J46100W I use Brother printers in the UK and in New Zealand and have always found them excellent. The MFC-J46100W is a smart and neat looking device that was easy to install except that I have not been able to get it to work wirelessly yet; however that may be my fault! The speed of printing is excellent and the scanner works well. Not tried the fax facility yet. It is a good companion for my iMac all-in-one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MFC-J4610DW After using brother inkjet printers for many years, I obviously went to Brother when looking to buy my first WiFi printer. The printer was very easy to install after following the simple instructions. I ave found the printer every bit as good as others I bought. The print speed is not paramount for me therefore very acceptable, Other reviews reported the casing was less robust but have found it to be OK. I would recommend this printer so anyone who wants to print via a wireless connection and be free from cables with the added bonus of also being a A4 copier. and print up to A3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J4610DW We purchased this printer about a month ago and it is terrific! Great quality, easy to use and set up, tons of features like it works over wlan, has a direct card reader slot, several trays for different size printing pages. It is basically the same size as our older Brother, just a little higher. So even though it also prints A3, it is not a huge monstrous thing taking up tons of space on the desktop. I would buy this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Brother Printer I bought this printer as a colleague had a similar model. I have found it to be really good and reliable so far. The printer was very reasonably priced. I will occassionally print A3 which it will do from a manual feed at the back. I like the fact that it is wireless and it also has a network cable connection and a usb connection. I have used the scanner which is fine as well. The build could be a bit more robust but the design is very stylish. I misunderstood the set up and so make sure you fill the top tray with paper as well as the bottom tray. This is my first Brother printer and I have recommended it to 2 other people who have bought them in the past fortnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New printer Having yet again more trouble with printers, I opted for the Brother, and so far can only be impressed, easy to use, quiet, good quality prints, does exactly what it says on the box, would recommend, and it looks good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with this printer So far so good, really fast and easy to use. Even my husband who is a 'technophobe' can you it without my assistance!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New printer Did loads of research including looking at which reviews before buying. Needed something flexible as wife prints cards and craft stuff, I was starting a new job working from home and have 3 young children. So far so good, ability to print A3 is a big bonus. Set it up really quickly to home computer iPad laptop and iPhone and android phone and no hassle when changed broadband provider. Only slight negative comment is it feels very light weight in terms of the paper trays need to handle them with care, also it's big so not ideal if limited space. Overall really pleased and replacement inks seem good value. Not had it long enough to comment on ink use but all the reviews said it was cheap to run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful This printer has a good expectation about quality printing and funcionality. Love the way print print my work fast and works with A3 printing paper aswell. That's I was needing to do my work. I reccomend it to everyone who wants a good printer A4 and A3 printing layout paper. Thanks Brother

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent experience This is not my first Wi-Fi inkjet multi-purpose printer so I have means of comparison. The device was easy to unpack & setup on the LAN with clear instructions and guidance notes. The client software installed an all the various PCs , etc that will access the printer and worked flawlessly straight away. (not always the case with other manufacturers). The MFC-J4610DW has a commendably wide range of functionality and operates at a good speed. It would most certainly support a small office with several users.(the second paper drawer would be a significant plus in such an environment). Print quality is very good for text and though graphics printing is not quite the very best I have seen you would probably need to do a side by side comparison to notice it. Feed options are many and I have so far experienced no paper handling problems at all. All in all I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New BrotHER MFC-J4610 Excellent well made printer which ,due to paper orientation, has a much reduced footprint. On a WiFi network with a Windows 8 Laptop and a Mac all its features kicked in with no setup or teething problems. I highly recommend this to anyone.Email me anytime for any further info

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J4610 I wanted a printer with separate inks, that would allow B&W printing, even if one of the colour cartridges was empty. I have not tested this yet, as they are all full!, but Brother have assured me that it is capable! Only had the printer for a couple of months, but the overall quality is good, the speed is good, and it looks good. Impressed so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wizard will not whizz this to wireless I have spent 15hrs chasing threads to try and get this linked to wireless . Why it is not a breeze with wizard etc I can not think. wish I had never seen it to be honest may as well bought a wired one and saved some cash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real neat machine! This is a rally nicely engineered package - compact yet very functional; looks and feels quite solid, was easy to set up and produces good results. Great to have the facility for occasional A3 printing, and being able to create back-to-back printed documents automatically is a great paper safer and works really well. Overall a very good buy and at a competitive price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact multipurpose A3 printer I've beenm really pleased with this printer its small compact the quality is great and it offers the additional benefits of A3 printing.
Date published: 2014-03-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MFC - J4610DW excellent multipurpose colour printer I purchased this to replace an old (non brother) all in one to complement my Black and White Laser printer in my home office. So far after nearly a month I am very pleased with colour printing, air printing from Apple devices and the speed of scanning. My only gripe would be that you have to be very careful in placement in the sheet feeder when scanning otherwise scans may not be square. This is a good looking feature filled compact machine suitable for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is excellent value for money Excellent value for money for an occasional A3 Printer, has many of the facilities of much more expensive printers, A3 Printing, double sided printing and fully wireless.
Date published: 2014-03-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, versatile home office printer Lots of useful features, such a two drawers for different sized paper and able to print A3 size manually. Print quality very good and economical. Only down side is a bit slow and a bit noisy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cheap and chearful You get what you pay for. Its a good alround printer but not as good as our other brother printers having said that for the money its ok if you need something that does a4 and a3. I do like the copy facility loading a large doc on top and pressing the button so much easer than lifting a lid for each page of copy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Printer MFC J4610DW replaces my previous Brother printer purchased in 2006 that was not compatible with AirPrint.. A first class machine and it is evident that Brother have improved their on line support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value for Money As letting agents, print quality & speed are of great importance. We debated long & hard on what type of printer to go for plus should it be leased or purchased. In the end we went for the Brother & after 6 weeks of use in our office, we are glad we did. We would be happy to recommend this printer to anyone looking to achieve good quality affordable results
