When it comes to all-in-one inkjet printers, the Brother Professional Series offers some excellent models that offer plenty of features that can greatly smooth the workload in your home office. Among the best is the Brother Professional J6910DW, a multifunctional printer with good resolution, exceptionally fast copy speeds and a notable fax memory that retains 400 pages.
This multifaceted printer, copier, scanner and fax machine can easily meet nearly any home office needs, whether you are heading a school committee and preparing weekly newsletters, creating brochures for your business or simply getting prints of documents and pictures that you intend to keep.
This multifunction inkjet printer offers the ease of choosing wireless, Ethernet, USB and media card or media stick connectivity for your printing. You can easily print from mobile devices through Brother iPrint and Scan.
With this printer, you can print two-sided documents that range as large as 11 x 17 inches, and you have the option of borderless printing, which extends whatever you are printing from one edge of the paper to the other. You get respectable, although not remarkable, printing speeds of 12 pages per minute for black and white copies and 10 pages per minute for color. The print resolution is 6,000 x 12,000. One disappointment is that the monthly duty cycle is only12,000 pages, which is not that much for an otherwise well-appointed home office device.
Scanning & Copying
You get two large paper trays that hold 250 pages each, which gives you a full ream of plain paper with which to work. It is unlikely you will need to replenish the paper supply very often given this paper capacity. You also get a handy 35-page auto feeder.
When it comes to copy speeds, the Brother Professional J6910DW is a veritable racehorse with both black and white as well as color copies clocking in at 17 copies per minute.
This multifunction all-in-one device is equipped with a 3.7-inch touchscreen LCD that lets you see faxes before you send them and quickly move through different menus. Faxes zip along at a tidy speed of three seconds per page and this all-in-one inkjet printer boasts an impressive 400-page fax memory.
For photos, you can make use of digital media card slots, USB flash drive or PictBridge. You have the ability to improve the appearance of your pictures by changing such things as skin tones, eliminating that red-eye look, adjusting scenes and more.
You get a three-year warranty with this multifunction printer, which is quite long for the industry whose typical warranty is just one year. This is a sturdy and somewhat large machine, but it doesn't take up all that much space for a machine that handles so many different capabilities. It measures 10 inches high, 18.9 inches wide, 11.4 inches deep and weighs in at 25.4 pounds.
