Brother Printer MFCJ4320DW Wireless Color Photo Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax

May 18, 2016

In our office, we have a big multi-function device to handle our printing needs. It does a great job, except when some tiny little plastic part breaks. Our service contract handles repairs and the service gets it fixed as soon as possible. But there can be a gap of a few days waiting for the replacement part to arrive. We have an older printer in the office that serves as a backup, but its usefulness has reached the end.

This led to me looking for an inexpensive printer to use for those few days a year when our main device is out of order. A very close friend owns a Cartridge World store and so I asked his advice for a printer that would meet our needs inexpensively and wouldn’t cause problems getting ink at a reasonable cost. Remember, this is someone who deals with repair and ink issues on printers all day, every day. His suggestion was a Brother MFC printer, though Amazon didn’t have that exact model at a good price. Therefore I’m suggesting one, the Brother MFC-J4320DW, that supports bigger output and only costs $10 more.


It can handle output as large as 11″x17″ and has a tray that holds 150 sheets of 8.5″x11″ paper. It can print up to 35ppm black and 27 ppm color. For higher quality output it would be slower though it is still plenty fast. Not only can it print from your computers, it can also print from mobile devices like phones and tablets.

As a multi-function device, it also handles copying, scanning and faxing. To keep costs low, it supports large ink cartridges that give more bang for the buck. Right now Amazon is offering it for $119.99 which is a very good price for something that delivers tabloid output.

    Sorry but I will never buy another Brother printer. I have had 4 of them. The main objection is their scanner. They do not scan edge to edge. 1/4 inch of the border will not scan. I also do not like the separate print head. Sounds nice when the cartridges are cheaper but becomes a headache later. And then finally they will nnot print when one color is out. It is always when a customer is waiting for a copy and the stupid machine won’t function until you put in a new cartridge.
    My HP machines have never had any of these problems. They scan edge to edge. They still print if the color runs out.
    I just bought a new HP scanner that also scans to PDF. Really nice. No more all in ones!
