Is this a good printer????


Please remember that when you buy from IT247 you have to tick a box that states that you are a business user before you can complete checkout. This means that you have no return rights under DSR.

r right, but you can return it if it is faulty though can't you?

just checked you can open up an account as a consumer when you go to checkout

this is what they say

4. Distance Selling Regulations
A Consumer Customer has the right to cancel a Contract at any time up to the end of 7 working days after they have received the Goods.


Apologies if things have changed - I have tried to verify that you can create a consumer user account at IT247 but their site seems to be pooped at the moment!

Its a good price but maybe because it has been replaced by the MFC5860CN as per brother's site ]HERE (Mainly cosmetic changes by the look of it)

See my post ]HERE re obtaining a Free 3 YR warranty on these models or choose other freebies instead.

Inks for the 5840 are cheap at choice stationary and for the 5860 at inkredible.co.uk (as little as £1.49)

yes i think your right kevinyork.

Looks the same spec but around £40 - 50 cheaper and also it looks as though you can get freebie as well, which is even better thanks for pointing that out.

I think the price is to good to worry about a little bit of a shape difference.
Dabs still have it about £10 dearer at the moment as well. I think this is a win win for us on HDUK
