The Energy Star compliant printers also feature, class-leading low TEC (Typical Electrical Consumption) to conserve energy, which converts to reduction in energy bills. In addition, the N-in-1 printing allows users to reduce 2, 4, 9, 16 or 25 pages onto an A4 sheet, saving paper and toner.

Brother’s Direct USB Print is a saviour when you are in a hurry - print directly from the USB Flash Memory Drive without using a computer. The printers also allow users to print easy-to-read and professional documents in A5 booklet format simply by choosing the special feature in the driver.
Brother’s Secure Print is a user-friendly feature to help safeguard your confidential and important documents. Enter a private PIN code on the computer when you are ready to print. The document will print only after you have physically entered your PIN code at the printer. Brother also prevents hacking of information when documents are sent from computer to the printer with SSL encryption.
SSL Encryption - Although documents are sent from computer to printer within seconds, this is long enough for the information to be hacked. SSL prevents this by encrypting the data you send over the network.
