Brother’s new range of inkjet printers with its two models, the MFC-J4340DW and the MFC-4540DW, is now in Singapore to help home and SOHO users enjoy the benefits and efficiencies of business-class printers even though they're out of the office.

Nigel Lee, Country Manager at Brother Singapore said:

As companies increasingly adopt work from home arrangements, our focus is on empowering small businesses and employees with the right blend of features and cost-efficiency to take their productivity to the next level.

 

Minor differences and big similarities

Replacement high-yield ink cartridges cost S$90 for both black and each individual colour cartridge and print 6,000 pages for black and 5,000 pages for colour. The ink cartridges that ship with the printers can print 3,000 pages in black and 1,500 pages in colour.
