  • Please could you let me know the volume of ink that is stored in the very big black ink cartridge for the MFC-6490CW inkjet printer? I ordered the smaller cartridge and it does not work in the above machine.

    High capacity Brother LC1100HYBK ink capacity

    The capacity of the genuine high capacity black Brother LC1100HYBK ink cartridge is 50ml.

    Both the standard and the high capacity black LC1100 ink cartridges should work in the Brother MFC-6490CW printer.

  • Is it possible to use this MFC-6490CW printer as a black only copier and have the other colour ink cartridges in place but empty? If so, how do I do this? it asks me to replace the Y, M, C on the display and won't copy, it seems, until I do?

    Brother MFC-6490CW ink replacement

    The Brother MFC-6490CW is a colour inkjet printer that requires you to have all four of the black, cyan, magenta and yellow LC1100 ink cartridges installed with some remaining ink for it to work, regardless of whether you're printing or copying in black or colour. You only need to replace the colours that run out so if you don't use colours often you shouldn't have to replace them as regularly as the black ink cartridge.

Brother MFC-6490CW Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother MFC-6490CW printer

Our Verdict:

Designed for small offices, the Brother MFC-6490CW is an all-in-one colour inkjet printer with advanced features to increase productivity and lower running costs. While it is fairly efficient, this bulky printer is lagging behind competitors in terms of print speed and is not as flexible in adapting to different kinds and sizes of media.


This wide format multifunction device is integrated with colour fax, scan, and copy functions along with a colour inkjet printer that runs on a 4 ink cartridge system. The standard paper tray can accommodate up to 400 sheets, and the printer's duty cycle is quite high at 5,000 monthly. The control panel's buttons are grouped according to their functions and the centrepiece is the widescreen colour LCD, which is great for previewing pictures and documents before printing. The Brother MFC-6490CW is a heavyweight at 34.4 pounds with dimensions of 21.3x19.2x12.7 inches (WxDxH).


Users can secure their documents and restrict public access to them using the Brother MFC-6490CW's state of the art security features. The printer is versatile and can accommodate ledger-sized prints (11x17 inches). The widescreen 3.3-inch colour LCD display is another plus, along with the generous two-year limited warranty and high yield ink cartridges. The Brother MFC-6490CW has built-in wired and wireless interfaces. It also supports direct-print options via USB Flash drives and PictBridge.


The Brother MFC-6490CW is marketed to be a fast device (at 35 ppm in monochrome and 28 ppm in colour), but some users who have actually tried it complain that it is slower in real life. Another drawback is the bulky size. The Brother MFC-6490CW cannot automatically recognise paper size, so settings have to be manually adjusted.
