Reasons For

Brother MFC-J4620 Canon iB4020
2 Reasons For
More Shops Are Selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this inkjet printer remaining in stock.
Better Brand
Brother inkjet printers have an average rating of 89.4%, but Canon has an average rating of 85.5%.
3 Reasons For
Vastly Bigger Standard Output Capacity
The Canon iB4020 has a standard output capacity of 500 sheets, however the Brother MFC-J4620 is only a 50 sheets standard output capacity inkjet printer (450 sheets smaller).

This indicates how many printed sheets of paper the output tray of the printer can hold before it starts to overflow.

A bigger output capacity means that the printer can print more/bigger jobs at once, and won't need to be looked after or the paper collected mid-job.
