Review of the Brother MFC-5460CN and MFC-5860N Printers

The Brother MFC 5460 and MFC 5860 printers are multifunctional color printers that are a good bargain for people looking for serious work units at an affordable price tag. The MFC 5460cn measures 17.3 X 15.4 X 8.9 inches where as the MFC 5860cn measures 17.3 X 15.4 X 11.9 inches. The former weighs 19.6 lbs and the latter 23.4 lbs. Both are pretty light and still very stable units once they are placed on a table top. The machines are extremely compatible with the LC51 generic printer ink cartridges which are available in four colors.

Review of Brother MFC-5460cn Color Printer
By Conrad

affordable inkBrother has already proven that it can compete in any market level of printers. In the $100 above price tag, the Brother MFC-5460cn is one of the brand’s top contenders. The core strength of the model depends on the capacity to scan, fax, and print even over a network. Another feature that adds to the prestige of the unit is the printing of files directly coming from PictBridge-ready cameras and memory cards. Even without a personal computer, the MFC-5460cn can work as dedicated fax and copier. For a printer as busy as this one, there is a necessity to utilize printer inks in favor of original

Because of the 35-page automatic document feeder, the unit can be considered more of a small office printer than a home gadget. It can handle 100 sheets of paper in the input which might not be enough even for light duty office use. Moreover, the unit does not also have a dedicated photo paper tray. Brother should have increased the paper handling capacity because the unit can accommodate a few more sheets with its measurement of 8.9” x 17.3” x 15.4” (HWD). A limited paper capacity is beneficial in the consumption of consumption of consumables together with the installation of generic ink as an alternative for the original.

In addition to PictBridge, the MFC-5460cn also has USB and Ethernet connectivity. The latter allows more users to access the printer via local area network. However, the monthly duty cycle of this printer is only 4,000 pages. This is one of the lowest in the industry. With its limitations in hardware, the unit is capable of borderless printing. It is also Energy Star qualified so it consumes less power. For more users to do various functions in the MFC-5460cn more productively, installing printer ink cartridges in it is the most practical option.

In terms of print speed, the printer did not do well in printing 4” x 6’ photos which was clocked at 4 minutes and 37 seconds. There are actually color inkjets that deliver print speeds of more that 2 minutes only. The output quality is not consistent with photo prints. There are results that are vibrant and clear while others demonstrated light shading. Minor banding showed in graphics but this is only a small issue compared to the overall quality. Text prints came out perfectly fine with fonts up to 6 points. They are just appropriate for standard business use. The Brother MFC-5460cn used the LC51 series printer ink and works pretty fine using the cheap printer ink cartridges.
