Why You Should Make Your Next Inkjet Printer a Brother

Tired of getting errors from your Canon, Lexmark or Dell inkjet printer? Is your color cartridge running low too quickly? Your solution is here – the Brother J470dw. This multi-function inkjet machine offers printing, scanning, faxing and copying. But what makes it stand apart from other machines? Let’s take a look:

More Ink for Less Cost Per Page

The Brother LC103 cartridges print up to 600* pages. The black refill is available for $15.99 and each color for $9.99. A Canon PG-40 only prints up to 195 pages* and is the same price.

Color Cartridges Are Separate – You only replace the one that is empty

            No one uses the exact same amount of color so there is always some ink left in tricolor cartridges that are supposedly empty. For instance, if you are printing with more magenta then you will have cyan and yellow left in the cartridge, yet it is rendered useless.
The Canon CL-41 tricolor claims to print up to 312* pages, but we know that number to be inaccurate since all the ink cannot be used entirely up.

Easy setup and installation

Wireless or USB connection options, with an easy driver installation disc.

Your new Brother printer has printheads built into the printer as opposed to the cartridges. Try to print at least every couple of weeks or your printheads could dry up. If this happens you will need to run an ink cleaning, perhaps several times. This does use ink so it’s better to print often.

Let me guess, your Canon Pixma was free? Or less than $25? Often people don’t take the cost of ink into consideration when purchasing a printer. That printer may be cheap, but keeping it full of ink costs an arm and a leg! Ink and Toner Planet is here to help you today and in the long run.

  1. Hey there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours
    require a lot of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do
    write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog
    so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
