Brother MFC-J4620DW Review
In this review I will take a look at the Brother MFC-J4620DW color inkjet multifunction printer. Now in my humble opinion, this is one of the best home and small office inkjet printers on the market in this price range. It’s a multifunction model with A3 functionality. In a series of 4 types, this is my favorite. A comparison chart is included in this review so you can also take a look at the other types. Connection possibilities are great and the quality is great. If you are still interested, keep on reading my brother MFC-J4620DW review. If you think this might not be for you, but you like Brother, take a look at my other best Brother printers suggestions.
Starting at the top we have a 20 sheet automatic document feeder built into the lid of the flatbed scanner, all of which packs away nice and neatly. The lid of the flatbed scanner also rises slightly to accommodate books and magazines. Under that we have a large 9.3cm touch screen display, ideal for work done at the printer like scanning and copying. We then have the output tray and a 150 sheet paper tray. At the side there’s a panel which can be taken out easily to reveal the ink cartridges. They can simply pop out, and pop back in again by using the little levers built into each cartridge.
The cartridges for this machine come in two different yields, either 550 or 1,200 pages. I always recommend the larger cartridges as they offer a lower cost per page and an overall lower cost of ownership. At the rear of the machine we have a 1 sheet multipurpose feeder that can take paper up to 220gsm. The feeder also accommodates A3 size paper making this machine perfect for printing large documents for meetings and presentations. Under the flatbed scanner there’s a compartment showing some of the printers connection options.
Connection and Speed
There’s both USB and Ethernet ports along with two telephone line sockets, as the MFC-J4620DW also has faxing abilities. It can print up to 35ppm on its fastest setting and as it’s an inkjet printer there’s no waiting around for anything to warm up, so it gets the prints out very quickly. Direct photo printing allows you to print JPEGs from both USB flash storage and memory cards, and the J4620Dw also has Air Print, Google Cloud Print and iPrint & Scan support. I love how compact this machine is, everything seems to have been designed with usability in mind, it takes up less desk space than many comparable printers and it prints A3.
It’s a top little printer, ideal for home use and increasing versatility in small to medium sized office environments. When looking for a cheap and versatile printing machine this is a great option. Brother also offers you 2 years of warranty and free support over the phone for the lifetime of the product. So especially for beginners or people with little knowledge of printers, I would recommend this. If you’d like to know any more just leave a comment at the bottom of the screen, or send me an email.
