    I got excited seeing an ink tank printer with a decent DPI under 300 dollars… until I saw that it’s not actually an Ink Tank printer. An ink tank printer is one that doesn’t take cartridges. This is just a regular cartridge printer that uses extra-large proprietary cartridges.

    It might have a large yield, but for those looking for an actual continuous ink printer, look elsewhere.

      Proprietary! Uweeeh~~!

    Are we related? I also recently got this printer.

    Not really a deal when the only place that sells it is Officeworks according to the Brother website

  •  

    What do you print?

    See Here how the Ink Tank works on the Brother Printers - https://youtu.be/zX9PE4B9jhk, some use bottles to fill the tank, Brother takes the ink from the Cartridge and fills the Tank

      That feels just like an ink cartridge with extra steps, given most other brands use large bottles to fill them.

  •  

    I think that's a regular price since June/May, but still a good one under 300. Please note the ink price is a little bit higher than the Epson inktank or similar.

    •  

      But epson or other brands has similar functions (wifi,duplex,ADF) under $300. I was not able to find similar one.

  •  

    Replacement ink is $41.88 per colour FYI

    •  

      Or $26.80 from here

      Colours are $22.90 each

    This is Officeworks' usual selling price.

      Yes but has me looking at printing costs. Currently using Epson Eco and this seems to have much lower on-goings.
      I think the Epson Ink costs me around $50 for 500 page yield. And Around $100 for all colours for 300 page yield
      Rough guess $160 spend on ink will yield 3000 pages (black) and 1500 (colour)

      But more importantly, less frigging cartridge changes, so thinking about this.

        Preaching to the converted buddy. It's been on my watch list but it has been this price since I started watching, when the pandemic started.

  •  

    I bought this a couple of weeks ago at the same price. I think its just Officeworks RRP. I didn't notice any deal.
    If you are posting for free delivery then its probably a duplicate of https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/506214.

    So looking at the video this does seem like an ink tank printer that uses a cartridge refill system. But I gotta ask. If the Epson uses a bottle refill system won't it be easier to source generic cheaper ink refill for the Epson than this. This brother cartridge system does not seem to lend itself to buying generic refills and being forced to rely on the manufacturer refills. Anyone have an opinion.

    •  

      You can definitely buy generic ink for this printer. There are plenty of stores selling it online. Check Ebay and see.

    What are the benefits over a laser printer?

    •  

      They dry up quickly and become unusable so you get to buy another?
      All jokes aside I have totally given up on inkjets and bought a brother mono laser. I couldn't be happier. It works when you want it to and is cheap to run and buy. Any colour printing I need gets done at officeworks etc

        Same. Mono laser for years. My print needs were sporadic, and hated having the inkjet lottery.

  •  

    Once you go laser you never go back

    •  

      I was on a laser, until the drum failed. Laser is very fast for complex colour prints, but moved to Inkjet 10 years ago due to health concerns.
      Never had an issue with the Epson Inkjet.
