Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brother MFC-J470DW Great printer, great value for money. very cheap on ink usage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This ink-jet printer appears to be good value I bought this particularly printer for its Which reviews on economy of printing - it was also very easy to set up for wireless printing, and has been very easy to use so far. The economy of print useage is still still to be tested over a period of time. However if any previous Brother printers are to go by, we have found they are usually reliable and good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Easy to use and install, functional machine. Copies clear and speedy, double sided print automatic, scans to file email etc. Printing in colour very good,haven't tried photo printing yet. Ink usage claimed to be minimal for occasionally users.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good all-in-one and value for money Easy to set up wirelessly and with our iPhones and laptops. Print quality and speed are good and the scanning and copying functions work very well. General set up and ink cartridge installation straightforward and product is pretty compact given all it can do. Selected this model for duplex printing, automatic paper feed, and we need an all in one colour printer at a reasonable price. This ticks all boxes and in price range we wanted seemed by far the best value and also, very importantly, ink cartridge replacement is not too expensive. Ink use reportedly quite reasonable too, another selling point.
