Some customer reviews of Brother MFC-J470DW wireless all-in-one inkjet printer

Most helpful reviews

Saibal, Romford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lots of time saved with automatic document feeder--I had to copy and scan manually using the previous model (MFC J265W). Quality of print good, not so many confusing options as to what level (best, normal or draft) to use, rather just a 'greyscale' option. Two-sided printing a great option, that way I can use virgin paper and not have to store it for 'recycling' by using the other side for later use.
Bad points:
There is a significant lag time between sending the order for print from my computer via LAN and the printout appearing, which did not happen at all in the previous model I used (J265W, as above).

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Much faster scanning than previous model. Can do multiple batches without slowing down.

Although it doesn't do automatic double-sided scanning, you can create continuous documents by manually turning the pages without having to start a new scan each time. The same applies to documents in excess of 20 pages - you can add further batches to the same continuous document

Useful that it isn't too wide so fits onto narrower trolley

Fast printing of documents
Bad points:
Poor quality colour from a photo (only tried once so far)

Two sided printing
Bad points:
Doesn't have a second paper tray. Putting envelopes in the one paper tray is such a hassle that I have reverted to the use of the fountain pen!
