Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

Can this feature-packed A3 multifunction printer find its niche with home users?

A3 printing in a compact size ; Feature-packed ; Great touchscreen controls

Workmanlike print quality

The feature range is welcome but let down by dull, lifeless printouts

Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

It's cheap to run and relatively cheap to buy, but poor print quality and speeds mean we can't recommend it.

Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

But as with similar products we've tested, the Brother MFC-6890CDW's talent comes at a price. Furthermore, it's a very slow performer.

If you want wide-format printing capabilities, you need a machine like the Brother MFC-6890CDW. But this model is so expensive and slow that my enthusiasm for it is lukewarm at best.

Brother - MFC-6890CDW All-in-One

 

Brother is billing its MFC-6890CDW all-in-one printer as “the world's first compact A3 Inkjet multifunction printer with duplex print” and it is a further example of the company's commitment to producing A3 printers that can be ...

Ultimately it has to be asked whether the advantages of having affordable A3 printing in the home are outweighed by the painfully slow printing process and at best indifferent output quality offered by the MFC-6890CDW.

Brother A3 Injet MultiFunction MFC-6890CDW

 

I get the chance to look at a lot of A4 multi function machines but very few A3 ones often because of the size; those I do see are normally laser units here just for a change is an A3 ink jet offering from Brother.

It is 53x47x30cm and it weights around 16kilos. While few would try to put it in the lounge if you have a large cupboard this is possible as it not only has USB and Ethernet but also Wireless. It is black with a grey trim around the front edge. It does...

Brother MFC-6890CDW A3 inkjet

 

Suffers the usual inkjet limitations, yet the affordable MFC-6890CDW comes close to being the ideal A3 all-in-one for small offices.

The MFC-6890CDW is a fine MFD for a small office, and a fantastic one for a home user. It is extremely well featured, from the wireless connection to the duplex printing, and of course its wonderful A3 scan/print support. Our only significant...
