  • Do you deliver to the United States, Brooklyn?

    Delivery of MFC-490CW ink cartridges

    Unfortunately, we are currently only able to ship orders to locations within the UK and our cartridges are only for use in UK printers.

  • Hi there, I'm already using compatible Brother MFC-490CW cartridges. The last set I installed will work if I use the copier on my MFC-490CW but will not print on wireless. A box comes up referring to genuine cartridges. Can you help me with information about your cartridges?

    Using compatible Brother MFC-490CW inks

    It shouldn't make any difference if you're copying or printing with a wireless connection.

    Unfortunately, if the printer will not let you use your compatible Brother MFC-490CW ink cartridges via a wireless connection you may need to print via USB. This is likely to be a problem with your printer setting rather than the cartridges themselves. Please contact Brother if you need technical support for your printer.

Brother MFC-490CW Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother MFC-490CW printer

Our Verdict:

The Brother MFC-490CW promises time-saving and efficient features to increase productivity in a small office or a home network, thanks to its built-in wired and wireless interfaces and automatic document feeder. It is integrated with the best features expected from a multifunction printer, but it is prone to mechanical errors that can affect print quality and speed.


The MFC-490CW printer stands out with its fairly lightweight body that measures 10 inches deep, 18.1 inches tall, and 15.4 inches wide. The glossy and sleek finish of the Brother MFC-490CW makes it look professional, and its crowning glory is the user-friendly control panel with the 3.3-inch colour LCD screen, which can swivel for ease in viewing. The PhotoCapture Centre reveals memory card slots for SD, memory stick, compact flash, and xD-picture cards, and a PictBridge port. Unlike its predecessors, this colour inkjet printer has a faster fax modem (33.6 Kbps).


The Brother MFC-490CW has versatile connectivity options including Ethernet LAN, Wi-Fi, and USB interfaces. It is inexpensive and can send speedy colour or B/W faxing within 3 seconds per page. The Brother MFC 490CW is Energy Star-qualified. It is also praised for its wider colour LCD display, direct photo printing capabilities from a USB flash drive, PictBridge-compatible digital camera, and media cards, and is ready for either wired or wireless networks. The 15-sheet automatic document feeder is another time-saving advantage.


There are problems with the print head and it affects speed. The Brother MFC-490CW is prone to the same mechanical errors that affect its predecessors. Photo quality needs improvement, too. The Brother MFC-490CW relies highly on a PC connection, so some of its features cannot be used as standalone devices.
