Brother MFC-J491DW review: A lacklustre printer that looks better than it performs


Brother's MFC-J491DW isn't bad, but there are much better alternatives in this price range

Quick scanning ; Easy to use touchscreen ; Fold-away ADF

Slow to print ; Doesn't match competitors ; Drab printing quality

Overall, the MFC-J491DW doesn’t do much wrong, but it doesn’t excel anywhere either. At this price, it’s simply too lacklustre to compete - so you're better spending your money elsewhere.
