Brother unveils its next generation of printers

Brother International Singapore has announced its latest round of printers, which includes a multi-function inkjet printer as well as new monochrome and color laser printers.

The Brother MFC-J2720.

 

MFC-J2720

The MFC-J2720 is Brother’s latest multifunction inkjet printer that has a print speed of 20 (color) and 22 (mono) pages per minute (ppm), and has A3 print capability. The flagship model also features duplex printing, scanning and faxing, which helps in improving work productivity. Paper handling comes in the form of a 50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF), 80-sheet (A4) multipurpose tray and 500-sheet dual trays. The dual trays make it easy to switch between printing different paper sizes such as A4 and A3.

The MFC-J2720 uses individual ink cartridges so you only need to replace the color that has run out, and since the MFC-J2720 works with InkBenefit cartridges, you can save more with the 2,400 page-yield InkBenefit cartridges.

The MFC-J2720 goes for $438, though its exact release date has yet to be confirmed, but Brother has stated it will be available from end October 2014.

This is the MFC-L8850CDW, but it's very similar in looks to the flagship, MFC-L9550CDW.

 

MFC-L9550CDW

The MFC-L9550CDW is the flagship model for Brother’s latest line of business color laser printers, which includes another multifunction printer and two laser printers. It has print speeds of 30ppm for both color and monochrome, and also features one-pass scanning, which utilizes Brother’s dual contact image sensor (CIS) scanner to scan a double-sided document just once, which cuts down on copying and scanning time. The other multifunction model (MFC-L8850CDW) also has this feature.

Since this line of laser printers are for office use, they all allow for secure document printing and scanning through the built-in NFC technology, so only authorized staff can print or scan sensitive documents.

The printers in this range also come with a secure function lock feature which enables IT administrators to set different print quotas for up to 100 users or groups. Administrators can also easily connect users who are already set up on an office network to the printers with the aid of the Active Directory feature.

New mono laser printers

Besides color laser printers, Brother has also announced a line of mono laser and multifunction printers that are aimed at small and home office (SOHO) users. The printers are capable of duplex printing and also come with high-yield toners that can print 2,600 pages.

The flagship model, MFC-L2740DW, comes with Wi-Fi Direct so you can connect mobile devices directly to the printer with the aid of the Brother iPrint & Scan app. The MFC-L2740DW also utilizes Brother’s dual contact image sensor (CIS) scanner to scan a double-sided document just once, for one-pass canning.
