Brother MFC-J480DW Inkjet All-in-One
Brother MFC-J480DW Wireless Setup, Driver & Software for Windows, Mac, Linux & Toner Cartridges– Brother MFC-J480DW is the all-in-one printer with fast speedy print and scan performance. This low-cost printer also has fax capability. It is a nice option as the business-class printer with its document loader and duplex printing capability. So far, it is the fastest printers in the $100 printers. Nevertheless, it cannot impress you if you go with serious photo printing needs.
The printer comes with a 1.8-inch of LCD screen, which is the smallest in its competition. At the front, there are several buttons for Fax, Copy, Scan, and Web. The first printer setup is about 5 minutes and 30 seconds from the first power onto the ready to print. Before using, you must remove the tab on the ink cartridge and the large plastic tab inside the printer. Therefore, we can say that it is quite take time to install the ink cartridge. To set the Wi-Fi printing, it also needs few minutes. You should enter the password by using the numeric keypad. Once you set it up, you can print from your PC, mobile devices as well as Brother’s cloud printing services.
The print speed of Brother MFC-J480DW is 12 seconds in a black text, which is a second faster compared to the average printers. Meanwhile, the copy speed of a black and white page is about 18 seconds. To finish a black and white scanning test, it only takes 25 seconds while the color scanning needs about 40 seconds to complete.
The printer goes with a four-cartridge setup with the single black, separate cyan, magenta and then yellow inks. For its standard capacity black cartridge, it can support 300 pages of output. The all three colors offer 300 pages of output. For the high-capacity black ink, it is available for 600 pages of output and the high-capacity color goes with the same output.
Therefore, we can say that the Brother MFC-J480DW is a solid printer especially if you are running a small office on a budget. Its faxing capability provides the reasonable cost per page and its printing and scanning performance are quite speedy. However, it cannot hold your job well if you need good photo quality. Other than that, you may have several things to consider such as the placement of the USB cable. In addition, you must think about the frequent self-cleaning. If you do not need fax capability, the alternative should be the cheaper Canon Pixma MG5620 that provides superior print quality.
In conclusion, Brother MFC-J480DW is ideal for those who need an all-in-one printer with a solid print and scan speeds. The printer is affordable with its low-cost option, especially for color ink. It is also the nice choice if your business always works with fax. However, you have to deal with its mediocre design, middling photo quality and frequent self-cleaning.
