Brother MFCJ450DW Printer Review

Recently I was in the market for a new color printer. My main requirement was for the printer to be reliable and the ink to be cheap.
I decided to purchase the Brother MFCJ450DW new model(MFC-J680DW) for $72.00. The main selling point is there are several companies that sell compatible ink cartridges for cheap. I purchased a 10 pack for $18.99 which is the same price as  1 authentic Brother black cartridge. What a saving!



Setting up the printer was easy. Using the LCD I was able to connect the printer to my wireless and print from my mac in seconds. It also supports Apples AirPrint and Googles Cloud Print out of the box. The scanner works great and is able to email as PDF.

So far the Brother MFCJ450DW new model(MFC-J680DW)  has met all my needs. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to save money on ink but not sacrifices on features. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
