This Printer is like a Ashtray on a Motorcycle!
I bought this about a month ago and I cannot remember a single printing experience which was pleasant since this day!
For a start, loading paper page by page, one by one, should be illegal!
But given that you are unable to load the single page without a fault appearing and prompting the required process of pulling half the printer apart to clear the fault is super frustrating and just simply ridiculous!
The quality of the print is nothing to write home about but was willing to accept this due to the price of the printer...but at this stage, it ...

Fast compact MFC lower cost ink jet printer
After 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...o, 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).
