Read all about it in this post from a week ago. Both the 480 and 485 are the essentially the same printer.

It's not exactly the same as the 480, here is a side by side comparison. The differences might be a deal breaker for some people.

I have the 485 and love it. Have always been an HP man and after wasting money on ink and essentially crappy printers I finally gave up on HP. Using it on a Mac book pro with os x and didnt have to download any drivers. im using the stock os x image capturing app, stock printer drivers etc. with nothing to download (OS x automatically download the drivers once it recognized the printer).

Two great things:
1. No more power bricks ..... yeah. I remember, literally the bricks that came with HP AIO printers.
2. The sleekness of how it looks. with the document feeder down, there is nothing sticking out. The paper tray is an actual paper tray similar to a ink-jet printer

One big con and thats with all these combo alphanumeric keypads is when you have to enter a long and complicate password for your router so you can connect it, it is a very tedious and long task. e.g pressing the 7 keys 4 times just to get to the letter "s", etc.

Got mines on sale at BB for $59 about 4 months ago so this is definitely a good deal.

That website has a lot of errors and shouldn't be relied on. According to Specout , among other things, the J485W is missing a flatbed scanner and an ADF feeder. Oh really?

I'm not sure if that page is correct or not. It shows the J485DW not having flatbed scanner input and not having usb connectivity. That doesn't seem likely. If you go to the official Brother web site, you can select both of them(the 480 and this 485) and do a comparison. It seems to show them as being identical. But if that's true, why would they have different(albeit slightly) model numbers. Uhhmmm... I don't know what to believe.

They're identical. Trust me. I already went through this last year with two higher end Brother models that appeared identical as well, but were split across retailers just as this one is. I poured over the official specs and compared them for over an hour. After I couldn't find differences, I gave up and called Brother. Support confirmed that they did in fact have the exact same features.

Retailers and manufacturers like to play the model number game because it makes them more flexible with sales and avoiding price matching. It's not an uncommon tactic either. Just take a look at appliances or mattresses some time.

You found any cheap ink for this model yet? I check on amazon but it still around upper 2ish to 3 bux a cartridge. I was hopping to get it down to the usual $1ish for brother ink cartridge.

I haven't been looking. For the past several months I've been trying to deplete my stockpile of ink for my Epson printer so I can finally switch over to my new Brother J5620DW.
