Summary: This Brother all-in-one printer did a great job printing and scanning everything I threw at it, and even when I did it across a home network, it did it quickly. The lack of a duplexing feature, however, canceled out the ease of networking; and the LCD screen wasn't my favorite. Still, I can recommend this printer to home users and small businesses without hesitation.
Pros: Easily networkable (wired networks only), Fast scanning, Good photo quality, Excellent print quality
Cons: No duplexing feature, No cables included, Small LCD

Summary: If you want an A3 multifunction device that's affordable and won't take up too much space in your home or office, the Brother MFC-5890CN is the ideal choice. We found it easy to use, it produced good quality photo prints and its ongoing running costs are reasonable.
Pros: A3 printing, good photo quality, easy-to-use front panel, not a space hog
Cons: Slow in our document printing test, inks can be tricky to install, scanner didn't pick up fine details
