Unlike most sub-£100 inkjet multi-function printers (MFPs), the Brother MFC-J430w leans much more toward being office-centric rather than being a home printer. Given the price, that's a little surprising, but if you're looking for an inexpensive printer...

The Brother MFC-J430W is the second-largest unit in our roundup at 9kg. Only the Epson Workforce 435 is heftier. The printer is entirely matte black, apart from a piano-black panel in the centre of the scanner lid. The controls are simple, and feature...

Brother’s MFC-J430W is one of the cheaper and more compact printers in this group. It doesn’t have quite the same speed and capacity as some of its rivals, so it probably won’t be ideal for an office where a number of people will need to share the...

With the Brother MFC-J430w, the old saying "You get what you pay for," is quite appropriate. For less than $100, you'll get a basic all-in-one with a few nice features including fax functionality, mobile printing, wireless connectivity and a 20-sheet...

The Brother MFC-J430W delivers printed pages at a speedy pace and is easy to set up and use. However, its print quality just isn't as good as what you'll get from rival models at a similar...

This is a multi function unit (it has fax) and it can connect either by USB or Wi-Fi. In fact I used both with equal success. I did however have a failure as no matter what I tried it refused to feed photo paper in any...

The $99 MFC-J430W has many features important to small and home offices, and it prints good-looking documents respectably fast. But $50 more could land you a much more full-featured printer. Choose cautiously....

The Brother MFC-J430W all-in-one printer is compact, chic, easy to use and clearly laid out and manages to produce decent quality documents and photos at reasonably fast speeds. Photocopies are not wonderful, though, and a couple of standard fixtures...

The Brother MFC-J430W is a decent, general-purpose all-in-one for those without a large budget, but who still need fax facilities, as well as print, copy and scan. While there is no facility to upload photos from card or USB drive, and colour copies...
