Printers suck; This one doesn'tIn contrast to my previous cursed HP printer, I was after a home printer that was responsive; economical on ink; with wifi connectivity. I chose this Brother MFCJ444) in November 2023 from Officeworks Australia as the Brother seemed the best of a bad bunch but I have been very pleased with it. Print quality (monochrome and colour) is good. It prints very quickly without disruption from my laptop or (android) phone wirelessly and several family members have been able to print from their (apple) devices also. We did have a glitch when two people ... Read morepressed print at the same time, everything paused but I removed queued documents and reset the printer, everything went smoothly after that. I have had no paper jams, everything starts up quickly even if there have been a few weeks between printing. In terms of scanning this is also straightforward as I can easily set-up a default folder on my laptop however I don't think you can autofeed for scanning (like I can on multifunction devices at work) so need to do this one page at a time. It is irritating but I happily accept this knowing that my printer is reliable at every other time. I am yet to resupply ink and although it seems expensive, it is affordable for inkjet cents/page and far cheaper overall than the $50 I forked out for HP every 30 pages or so. I have turned off software updates as I want the printer to work as is without Brother 'improving my printer experience' (I think this can code the printer for planned obsolescence or less ink uptake forcing me to purchase more). So far, so good. I am very happy considering printers are the bane of my existence.
This printer is the best so farI have been doing research on multifunctional printers and was going to buy one via E-commerce platform, however I could not find one without criticisms.
I somehow came across of this Brother MFC-J4440DW on Internet and found the reviews and spec were all good. I bought it finally and was lucky to set it up very easily with the Brother app.
I have no tech background but I managed to set it up on wi-fi based with my cell phone and laptop! I only used about 1.5 hour to finish setting up, and it turned out amazing! I printed PDFs and JPGs, wit... Read moreh 2-sided duplex pages and good colour! The speed of printing is normal, not speedily fast but acceptable for printing duplex. Not sure how long the ink would supply but I believe it is my best choice to choose this model to have scan, print, and copy functions at only AUD 299! I highly recommend this printer!
This is amazing multifunction printer and loving itAmazing printer its almost a year and no issues with Ink as its still going. I use it a lot for office print outs and scanning documents its done in minutes. Another feature is to print using the mobile app within seconds. Show details
So glad my original choice failed!Bought an Ecotank EPSON which failed immediately after filling with ink. Didn't realise the model had no scanner and didn't want to pay $500+ for one that did so went for the Brother. Recommended by the Officeworks staff member and it has been great from the get go. My old printer was 10 years old and it was a Brother as well so should have stuck with the brand. Was seduced by the no cartridge concept on the EPSON and I must say the initial loading of ink was super easy. However it failed to recognise that ink had been filled. Well done Offi... Read moreceworks for allowing me to exchange for another brand. The Brother does have 12 months worth of home usage ink and the cartridges have gotten much bigger. Scans easily. $4 difference in the price, with a scanner and fax, whereas the EPSON was a printer only.
Reliable and fastEasy to use reliable and fast.."I likes it" :..just wrote that last bit to make up the 10 word minimum review! Show details
Border MFC-J4440DW printerExcellent printer, in the past I had Epsons & Canons which were twice as expensive and not even half as good as this little beauty

( not for bulk photocopying,some reviewers don’t understand it’s mainly home PRINTER) Show details
Very Happy with this Printer. Easy to set up.
. Printing without issue. Quite fast.

. Haven't used the scan function yet. Show details
Fast compact MFC lower cost ink jet printerAfter limping along for several months, my Brother MFC-J4620DW MFC ink jet printer/scanner/copier finally hit the printing brick wall over the Christmas/New Year break. The J4620DW is a traditional ink jet printer with expensive cartridges, which was an irritation even though my print volumes are low.
So I was happy to see that ink jet manufacturers had introduced Eco Tank/Ink Tank options to their ranges since my last purchase in 2016. After comparing specifications and features along with the cost of replacement ink and how much printing I d... Read moreo, I decided to stick with Brother and bought the J4440DW from Officeworks for $295. The other contender was the Epson Eco Tank ET-2811, which Officeworks is selling for $395. The two machines have a similar costs of $455 to $470 for the first two years of use if you factor in a set of replacement inks ($160 for the J4440DW or $75 for the ET-2811). The Epson will print more pages than the Brother for that money but the Brother has an automatic document feeder and supports duplex printing - neither of which is available with the Epson. The Brother is also fully controllable from the front LCD panel while an app is required to achieve the same result with the Epson. On balance, I went for the Brother. If my print volumes stay low, I might even get more than two years printing from the initial set of INKvestment cartridges. Setup was straightforward. It took about about 30 minutes for a full install, including the optional PaperPort software, connecting to a home Wi-Fi network and installing the J4440DW on all our connected devices (hint: use a stylus or pen to drive the LCD screen rather than your fingers). Initial impressions are good. Print quality is high and print speed is much faster than the J4620DW. The printer footprint is compact and well-suited for home use or as a personal printer in an office setting. Scans can be managed from your laptop, which allows you to specify scan quality if the default setting doesn't meet your requirements. The only downside to the J4440DW is the cost of replacement INKvestment cartridges. On a per page basis, the Brother cartridges costs about three times as much per page as the Epson ink tanks for black ($1.30 per 100 pages versus $0.42) or a whopping 10 times as much per page for color ($2.60 per 100 pages versus $0.26). I can only hope that Brother respond to market pressure over the next couple of years and drop the price of replacement INKvestment cartridges while I use up the initial set...
Questions & Answers
I am a scrapbooker and cardmaker. Am I able to use cardstock in this machine??
I found some info about it on Brother support page https://support.brother.com/g/b/faqend.aspx?c=au&lang=en&prod=mfcj4440dw_as&ftype3=2044&faqid=faq00000080_046
What is the cost of printing per page?
Can you use a USB cable to connect into your computer ?
Yes you can. There's a usb input front left, but this is just for image transfer. However there is a connection under the scanner lid which has a cable path to the back of the machine to allow pc connections via a usb cable.
