Brother MFC-990CW All-In-One Inkjet

 

If you want a printer that covers all the bases, Brother's MFC-990CW fits the bill.

Brother MFC-990CW review

 

The Brother MFC-990CW is an ideal multifunction printer that can truly do it all: for $230, you get a 4.2-inch touch-screen LCD display, 802.11 b/g wireless networking, a cordless handset with a digital answering machine, autoduplexing, and Bluetooth...

Triple-interface connectivity includes USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet LAN; interactive 4.2-inch touch-screen LCD; 5.8GHz digital handset and answering machine built-in; inexpensive; small and stylish.

Slow print speed; suffers the same mechanical errors affecting other Brother printers; ships with starter ink cartridges; short one-year warranty; no USB cord included.

The Brother MFC-990CW is a speedy, fully capable all-in-one device that earns our recommendation for an individual or a family that will make use of its touch screen and telephone/answering machine. Mechanical issues notwithstanding, this is the...

Brother MFC-990CW review

 

It's a great package if you need all the features, but shop around if print quality is your number-one priority.

Brother MFC-990CW review

 

Not that the Brother MFC-990CW's is the best toucscreen example we've seen. While the photo enhancing feature is good, the screen is less responsive and the image not as easy to read as it could be.

You’ll like the Brother MFC-990CW more for its vast range of features than its sizzling performance – given the asking price, you can get better photo and text printers then this one. But with its range of fax, phone and photo-friendly features, its...

Brother MFC-990CW all-in-one printer

 

A lot of functions in a small box, but print quality and especially speed don't shine out.

If you know what you're looking for when considering this machine and its compactness and multi-function design are paramount, you wonââ'¬â"¢t be disappointed. The inclusion of a DECT phone and answering machine is handy, and the touchscreen is...

Brother - MFC-990CW

 

The MFC-990CW is the highest specification model of a new batch of five A4 All-in-One inkjet printers that Brother has released, using the same engine as a similar recent series of multifunction A3 printers. As you'd ...

A stylish and heavy multifunction all-in-one printer that has user friendly controls and wireless connectivity, but is let down by variable image quality, particularly from scans and copies.

Brother MFC-990CW

 

The Brother MFC-990CW is an all-in-one device aimed squarely at the home and small business market. It has plenty of features and its low-slung profile will appeal to those with a lack of space. However, its 230 price tag means it's going to have to...

On paper, the MFC-990CW is excellent, with a plethora of useful features. The touchscreen LCD is responsive and makes for simple navigation of the menus. The design is compact and as pleasing as can be expected from a printer/copier combination,...

Brother MFC-990CW

 

Brother's latest all-in-one printer is packed with features, but should you buy it? David Bayon finds out.

We wouldn't be surprised to see touchscreen interfaces appearing on the higher-end printers from all the major players in 2009. We've seen a fine example from Epson, and while the display on the Brother MFC-990CW doesn't compare in terms of its menu...

Brother MFC-990CW

 

A Brother inkjet multifunction with features galore.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic document feeder, dedicated photo media tray, detailed and fast scans, touch panel

Print speeds are horribly slow, some photo quality inconsistencies, poor colour accuracy in scanned images

Brother's MFC-990CW is a trade-off between features and quality. Although you do get a lot for the price, basic functions like printing and scanning could be improved.
