Canon MG4270 vs Brother DCP-J315W printers : scan/print speed, iPad/iPhone printing
Posted on 2013-01-19
At my place the MG4270 is selling for $1 more than the J315W
but the former comes with 2 years warranty while the latter
Was told by the salesperson that the former (Canon) is iPrint
certified so it's better for iPad/iPhone printing while the Brother
model is not iPrint certified & not so 'compatible' for printing
from iPad/iPhone: any truth in this? (appended below the specs
Functions: Print, Scan, Copy, Direct Photo Print, Wireless Networking
Print Speed: Fast print speeds up to 35/28ppm
Print Resolution: Up to 1,200 x 6,000 dpi
Network: Wireless Networking
With the free iPrint&Scan app, you can now print directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Plus, you can scan documents from your MFC straight to your Apple gadgets.
WHich of the 2 models scan faster (directly) to SD card?
Ink cartridge costs is a concern to me. I've found another of my
Canon model where the color cartridge bundles together the 3
colors, so if one color runs out, have to change entire cartridge
which cost about $50+ at my place. All Brother models come
with individual color cartridge & there's a local store near my
place which sell individual Brother color cartridge. But the
salesperson told me Canon cartridge is smart: all colors will
be mixed in such a way that they run out at about the same
time. Any truth in this?
I have a need to print from a Macbook Pro soon too as my
girl's school require the use of Macbook Pro.
My indecision/dilemma is cartridge ink vs the iPrint (which Canon
is certified in)
