Brother MFCJ491DW All-in-One Printer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 271.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer for the price I purchased this to replace a printer that we had not used in 5 years and the heads had been permanently damage, so obviously I didn't want anything too expensive. This printer is great for its price. It has a document loading tray (not shown in the photo) for scanning and photocopying so you can easily do multiple pages at once (although not double sided), it can print automatically on two sides, it simply scans to my work computer over wifi with a couple buttons on the printer (no need to open software on my computer). I am continuously impressed with how many features it has. Great for work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent combination of features. This all-in-1 printer has all the expected features plus fax capability for when I (rarely) need it. The print speed is acceptable and the control panel is usable. The biggest challenge appears to be dealing with the wi-fi connection. If you are working in a secure networking environment, you will need to figure out how to get around your local firewalls. I'm still investigating why I can't use wi-fi to connect to my new printer, but I did succeed in using the hardwired connection. I'm fairly sure my problem is related to router firewalls and not with the printer itself. Resolving that sort of issue can be frustrating if you are a computer novice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain multi function wireless printer I love Brother printers, so when my old one finally died after 15 years of hard use, I was always getting a similar one. It was an absolute bargain at $98, and it works perfectly. The big advantage Brother has over many other printers is that all 4 ink cartridges are separate, so you don't have to buy a whole new 3 colour cartridge just because 1 colour has run out. The wireless function works perfectly even 2 rooms away, and this printer is everything was looking for, for a small home office printer. Recommended - 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless printer I`ve had I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. This printer is the best wireless printer I`ve experienced so far. There was basically no assembly needed, just insert the paper tray. The set up(to wifi) was easier than I`ve experienced in the past, and once connected, I was instantly able to print. With other printers, they would constantly go offline or they would be delays in printing. I have not experienced that with this printer, and I am thoroughly satisfied. I love this printer, it is so easy to use! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little inexpesive printer for home use I wanted the smallest possible all-in-one printer with document feed that I could find. This seems to be it. Set up, including wireless, was easy. Filling paper is also easy. Print rate is good. Document feed is a bit slower than my previous printer, but tolerable. Labels on control buttons are a bit confusing because the print is small, but with a few days of regular use, it becomes second nature. Overall, I like this printer. (I haven't had to replace the starter ink yet, so I don't know how ink price would have affected my review)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Borither Print Scanner Fax I received this product for free from Brother in exchange for my honest opinion/review of the product. The Brother wireless printer is a great addiction to your home office. It`s not super bulky and I love that the paper is stored inside the machine. The set up is time consuming as you have to download the latest firmware and it can be abit noisy, but once complete it`s super easy to use and prints very quickly. The instructions that pop up on the screen are clear and easy to execute. Even my non-tech savvy husband could figure it out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low-cost desktop printer Can't beat the features of this inexpensive printer! The double-sided booklet printing alone was worth it to me for saving paper! I also like the compact design which doesn't take up so much space.
