Brother introduces a couple more printers
Brother isn’t exactly the number one name that you would normally associate with printers, but then again they do have some pretty decent offerings in the past and currently. This time round, Brother has rolled out a couple of models under the Professional Series banner, featuring all-in-one color inkjets. Those seem to be the most popular type of printers these days, since everybody wants convenience in a single device. Of course, the downside would be, having the printer break down equals to disaster since you would be devoid of the other functions and features as well. The two printers we’ll look at today are the new MFC-5890CN and MFC-5490CN models.
The MFC-5890CN expands the line-up initially introduced by the MFC-6490CW, which was the first and flagship model launched in the Brother “Professional Series.” The MFC-5890CN’s ability to produce up to 11-by-17-inch ledger size documents can significantly increase the visual impact of everyday documents. The larger size allows for more content on the page and helps increase readability. Impressively, this unit offers the ledger printing feature and still boasts a small footprint when compared to similar, more expensive products. It also comes standard with Ethernet networking, fast print speeds and a flip-up, 3.3-inch, color LCD display.
Another addition to the Brother “Professional Series” color inkjet all-in-one line is the MFC-5490CN, which offers many of the same features as the MFC-5890CN such as fast print speeds, direct photo printing from a camera’s media card and an easy-to-read, two-line LCD display. The MFC-5490CN prints up to legal (8.5-by-14-inch) paper size but not ledger (11-by-17-inch) like the MFC-5890CN.
If you want to lay your hands on either of these puppies, the MFC-5890CN and MFC-5490CN will retail for $199.99 and $129.99, respectively.
