"I wish I bought something else"

EB88, CNET
14 November 2009
  • Pros: It can print 11x17 Scans very quickly Can fax but I don't use that feature 2 year warranty
  • Cons: Didn't come with a usb cable, and the instructions specifically insist not to buy one longer than 2m (ridiculously short). The pages print from first page to last (reverse printing should be default). No option to print booklet mode. And it's HUGE.

Multi-page copying problems, for starters

J. Smith, Amazon
25 March 2009
  • 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. On a side note, quality settings below "normal" are pretty low quality - too low for legible emails, etc. I'm not sure who would ever want to use them to save ink, as you'll be more frustrated with illegible prints.

a DISAPOINTING PURCHASE

  • Summary: An average printer charged as an above average price. The refill print cartridges are very expensive and are not really value for money.

Misleading description

JohnT, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • 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. It then cost me £26 to return it. The company that supplied the printer said they have no control over the wording of the advertisement as it is done by Amazon. Buyers beware!

Good scanner, awful printer!

J.S, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • 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! It doesn't print any sort of bright colour well so colours appear muted and the quality or purples and greens is especially bad. my £30 printer does a better job.

7 April 2010
  • 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. Inzwischen habe ich mir einen Brother Laserdrucker MFC -7440 N gekauft.es ist ein tolles Gerät.
