Brother MFCJ480DW All-in-One Printer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1323.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice printer for the price I've been using this printer for a few months. So, I cannot speak to its durability and how expensive or inexpensive it is to operate as compared to other printers I've used over the years. The quality is quite good with average printing speed. The printer interface with my Mac is typical of other All-in-One printers. I appreciate the notion of automatic ordering for printer ink; however, I have spent many hours trying to connect the WiFi to my computer to no avail. To my way of thinking, the same connection used for printing should also work for the automatic printer ink fulfillment. That is how it worked for my Kodak printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money I upgraded to windows 10 and my old printer was 6 yrs old and wouldn't work after the upgrade so I had to shop for a new printer. I need a small printer to fit in my desk drawer and All-in-one to do the job I needed it to perform so I ended up with the MFC-J480DW and so far it is working great. I got it right after Thanksgiving so I got a good price. I would recommend if your an average home user. It's a little slow but nothing that I can't put up with for what I do. This is my first Brother's product that I have ever purchased, I usually get HP but they were to big for my drawer and this did the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT FOR PERSONAL OFFICE USE I've owned this product for a couple of years, and it STILL amazes me at how SLOW it prints. To print anything longer than 2 pages, you might as well make your sell a drink and hangout for a while cause you're not going anywhere. I might even be okay with how slow it goes, IF it were optional. But no, even on reduced quality, plugged in via USB and all, it still takes an eternity. And you might say, "well it must print really well, if it takes so long". Nope, it's average. Not bad, but nothing impressive. Thoroughly disappointed, and will not be going to brother for anything else

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly happy I really like the size, the ease of using the features, I like it's not a touch screen, I like almost everything about it. I've had to install (uninstall/reinstall) the drivers 3 times since i bought it in Dec., it stops scanning. In all fairness it could be partially operator error (?) but the process seemed pretty simple. Anyhow, when it works correctly (which i did get a "new screen" at the last install, so maybe all good now) I really like it. I also like how it has a "hook" feature so you can see if your fax line is working by hearing the dial tone - as I did have fax line issues recently as well. All in all, yes I recommend because I don't think it's manufacturing issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Investment! I needed a new printer and already have a Brother Sewing Machine that I love! By the Quality of my machine I decided to try the printer and a friend told me I should try the all in one. Well I don't know, usually when you have an item that does more than one thing one of those things doesn't work too good. Imagine how happy I was to see that this printer works well on all! The Scanner saves my paper in my computer beautifully. The fax is quick and easy to use! and of course I love the printer I make cards as well as letters! it's also fantastic with my craft projects. Thank you Brother this is the best purchase I've made!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Printer I purchased this MFC-J480DW printer two months ago. I have had continually not able to print a document in real time. Instead, I have to wait for the printer to decide when it will print. I have reset the wireless feature at least 5 times with no success. Ironically I ran out of Black ink last week. I don't know how that happened since the printer quite literally has printed about 10 documents in two months!! Where is all the ink going? Please don't waste time purchasing this printer. It is not worth the economical price if you need to rely on printing features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied first time Brother user After a lot of research on an inexpensive all-in-one printer that would be more reasonable as to its ink usage and cost of ink I decided on this one. The sheet feeder for quick copies or scanning is GREAT. The shortcut feature for configuring scanning direct to web apps has cut down on paper and ink use since I can view the copy and only print when needed. Duplex printing is saving paper and time. Ink usage seems to be less than the HP printers I've used for years and after a couple months I'm still using what came with the printer. The Brother iPhone app is a nice plus. I had one question that I emailed support and they were prompt and very helpful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is this really a 2018 printer? New. During the set up the printer starts printing pages on status. Who needs that feature to use up the ink before you even start using the printer? The progress screens on printer and online management options are primitive. Both offer few options to customize. Very disappointed. You have to run back and forth from printer to your desk/computer to press buttons during set up. Note* this printer does not have a touch screen as some reviews indicated. Only LCD with buttons. The paper drawer is also very flimsy and seems like it wont last. This is my first Brother for home. My antiquated Canon and HP were more sophisticated.
