Great multifunction printer- until it ran out of black ink

Summary: I bought this printer a while back to replace another Brother MFC model that had quit working after like 5 years. I liked the oversize scanning/printing ability and the wired network feature of the 5890. The LCD display panel was a nice touch.
Summary: Every once in a while, it has to do a self cleaning which takes about 2 minutes. It really is annoying. Once it is ready to go, it does print fairly fast. I like the features of this printer except for the auto self cleaning. Which I could turn that feature off.
Summary: I've installed the print driver for this machine 3 times. At least it worked after the last two times. It always ends up doing the same thing. I try to scan and, no matter what interface I'm using (Photoshop, Brother's app, etc.
Summary: I bought this printer largely because of the good reviews and the 11x17 printing capability which comes in handy quite often. I was NOT impressed with the text quality; could not print out a resume that looked good enough, even on the best quality setting.
Summary: I particularly wanted a multi functional printer that scanned A3 documents and the Brother MFC-5890CN seemed to fit the bill. Once received and unpacked it was obvious that the machine could only scan A4 documents. Totally useless to me. The way the description is worded is very misleading.
Summary: I would not recommend the Brother MFC-5890cn. I study design and wanted an a3 printer and scanner that wouldn't cost a bomb - the cheap(ish) price isn't worth it. It was fairly difficult to set up and does not come with a USB connector to your computer. The print quality is awful!
Summary: Der Drucker wurde in kürzester Zeit geliefert.Nach dem Installieren funktionierte die Farbeinspritzung nicht und das Gerät war defekt.Der Verkäufer sagte mir; das es bei diesem Gerät häufiger mit den gleichen Fehlern geliefert wird.Es ist also noch nicht ausgereift.
