Brother MFC-4820C Printer Review


The Brother MFC-4820C combines a solid printing engine with scanning, faxing, and copying capabilities and a compact design which should appeal to home or small office users. Print speed is good, at 13 pages per minute for black, and 11 pages per minute for color. Brother MFC-4820C ink costs are a bit higher than competing models.

When shopping for a printer, it is tempting to focus only on the upfront cost, but it is also important to look at ongoing ink costs. Brother MFC-4820C ink cartridges have a smaller page yield than many competing models, which gives the Brother MFC-4820C inkjet cartridges a higher cost per page over the long run. This may outweigh the lower upfront cost, depending on the volume of printing.

The Brother MFC-4820C has the ability to perform practically any office task needed. It can print, scan, copy, and fax. It also has the capability for PC Faxing, which allows users to send a fax directly from a computer, similar to sending a document to be printed. This is not only convenient, but usually results in a sharper fax than printing a document and then faxing it.

In their review of the Brother MFC-4820C inkjet printer, IT Reviews found its compact design and intuitive control panel to be impressive. They also liked the included memory slots and separate ink cartridges for each color. They found its print quality to be a bit lower than some of its competition, however.

Overall, the Brother MFC-4820C is a very compact and affordable solution for the home or small office user who needs its many functions at a low price. Its affordable price is somewhat offset by its mediocre print quality and its high Brother ink costs, however, which may make it a less economical printer in the long run than models that cost more upfront, but offer lower ink costs.
