Brother Multifunction Printers – Flexibility and Quality in
Brother multifunction printers are amongst the leaders in the market in
terms of the range of functions they provide and the quality they
produce. Many multifunction printers are "Jack of all trades, master of
none" affairs – they can serve a number of roles, but they don’t do
anything particularly well.
Brother’s range of multifunctions means home users and small business
people can now afford multifunction machines that really deliver
quality performance for a number of diverse tasks. On top of that,
these machines are competitively priced and can effectively save you
hundreds of dollars over buying separate, purpose-specific models.
There are four categories of multifunction machines produced by
brother. These are color inkjets, color laser printers, black and white
laser printers, and laser/LED printers.
Overall, Brother multifunctions are a good choice if you need to use
multiple functions on a daily basis. It streamlines the work process by
allowing a team to repeatedly use a single machine for several
purposes. Not only does it increase worker efficiency, it lowers
overall costs in the workplace by reducing the upfront costs of
bringing various capabilities into the workplace and reducing the costs
of printing, faxing and copying over the long term.
Color Inkjet Multifunctions
Brother offers a wide range of color inkjet multifunction models,
ranging from basic units at $79.99 through to more advanced models up
to $349.99. More advanced models include extra features such as duplex
(double-sided) printing and network capabilities. Several of Brother’s
color inkjets also include large LCD screens which allow you to see in
detail what you’re about to print – and the quality produced differs
little from what you see on screen.
These machines are a little pricier than the color inkjets, and they’re
best suited to a business environment where a team is making use of the
single printer. These units from Brother provide all the necessary
functions for a business environment – printing, scanning, copying,
faxing – although they’re relatively slow in their printing speeds
compared to some of Brother’s other multifunctions. But what these
machines lack in speed they more than make up for in quality and a low
cost of ownership.
Color Laser Multifunctions
Color lasers provide more affordable, high output solutions than inkjet
printers. Brother’s inkjet models are effective solutions if you
require a low printing output, but color quality absolutely must be top
notch. Brother’s color laser multifunctions, on the other hand, will
deliver a respectable quality for most projects while also being
affordable in terms of purchase price and long term operating costs.
Black and White Laser Multifunctions
Brother multifunction printers are ideal for business situations in
which you’ll primarily be printing, copying or faxing documents rather
than images. But these machines are definitely not to be viewed as
being more basic than color models. For instance, some of the more
advanced black and white multifunctions Brother produces can print at
up to 32 pages per minute and allow for multiple networking interfaces,
including Ethernet and USB 2.0.
