Brother MFC9460CDN High Speed Network Colour Laser Multifunction Printer With Automatic Duplex & Fax – Excellent printer, but some catches

The printer is a breeze to set up and had it talking to my network of pc’s and mac’s in next to no time. The scanner software is great, and the general functionality of the machine is easy to use and operateprint speed and quality is perfectly adequate for this price, coupled with separate cartridges for separate colours should help reduce replacement toner costs which is a boost. My only gripe (and the reason it only gets a 3 from me) is that photo quality prints are poor even on the best settings and using the finest print media, if you’re using this printer for a lot of fine print or printing of pictures i would maybe look at other options first, however if you’re looking for a general purpose all in one office laser this could be the one for you.

Excelent product, the instalation was easy and the printer quality is beyond what was expected for the paid pric. On the other hand the packaging was clean and well handelled plus the product price is very good.

Excellent printer, but some catches. I had an epson cx11 for 3 years which performed perfectly throughout. However, it doesn’t do double sided printing and this would be very useful to me so, after much research, i bought the brother mfc9460cdn when the epson finally died. I year in, i am posting this for anyone who is looking at laser printers because there isn’t a lot of info available for users on these machines. I work form home and use this as my office printer, with a high volume of scanning & printing. First thing to say, is that the brother is a well built printer, easy to use and change cartridges and it has been 100% reliable. Double sided printing is perfect. However, there are a few points it is worth knowing about before you commit:1. It has separate colour toner cartridges, but you have to replace all 3 at the same time. This has happened twice to me so far, so it can’t be a coincidence that they ran out at the same time.

  • Excellent printer, but some catches
  • Decent mid range printer
  • Very heavy but first impressions are good

Robust printer for office environment – refills are a lower price that some of the rivals – printing is quick and true.

Very heavy but first impressions are good. I’ve always used lexmark ink jet printers before but with my work from home charity expanding, i needed something with a bit more clout. Faced with a mind-bogglingly large selection of printers to choose from, it took some hours to narrow it down to a brother and then eventually to this model. I based my decision on the good reviews on this site and the fact that although it was tall, it was the same width and weight as my lexmark. Unfortunately, the little snippet of information stating the item weight to be 8kg was incorrect. The printer in fact weighs some 26kg and is much too heavy to go on the shelf above my monitor where i had hoped it would live. The packaging gave us a bit of a shock when it was delivered too, both myself and my husband could have squeezed into the box it came in. The printer was surrounded by some hefty polystyrene though, so not quite as large as our first impression. I’m disappointed that i didn’t spot that it’s not wireless; there were so many other things to consider, i missed that. And being quite bulky, it can’t go next to my computer, so i need to buy a 3m usb cable.

  1. I bought this printer for my business and am very pleased with it. It is easy to set up and very quick clear printing. It is an added bonus that it is also a scanner, copier and fax.
