Brother MFC-5460CN Review
The Brother MFC-5460CN has, since its release, been replaced by newer versions of the MFC in the Brother product line, but its 30 page per minute print speed and high level of versatility make the 5460CN a unit that will continue to fight off obsolescence for some time to come. Built in memory card slots and included networkability ensure that any home user or hobbyist will get their money’s worth out of this bargain all in one device.
A variety of media card slots, along with PictBridge compatibility, make the Brother MFC-5460CN a great option for stand alone photo printing without the use of a host PC. Interestingly, the device’s full Ethernet networking abilities seem to contradict this function, but it just goes to show that the 5460CN, more or less, does it all.
With PictBridge connectivity, digital cameras equipped with the feature can connect directly to the device. Photo can then be previewed, selected, and printed. When inserting various media card types into one of the unit’s many available ports, the built in 2” color LCD display can help users to navigate their photos and even execute a small range of editing functions.
The device’s incredible print resolution of up to 6000 x 1200 dots per inch makes it an ideal choice for color photo printing and detailed image printing. When using glossy, standard sized photo paper, the Brother MFC-5460CN can also execute a borderless print resulting in hassle free photos that don’t require trimming by hand.
With a wide range of print, copy, scan, and fax functions, as well as PC fax abilities, the Brother MFC-5460CN is an excellent way to add an enormous range of paper handling options to a small office or home.
The device itself does not really have any outstanding flaws, it has simply been surpassed by newer technology. It’s print speeds of 30 pages per minute for black and white and 25 pages per minute for color are competitive, but not quite as fast as some of the units found on the market today. It also does not include a handset or answering machine; both of which were commonly found in Brother’s earlier MFCs. A telephone can, however, be connected via the available side port. This allows the fax modem to be active without tying up a phone line.
