Brother MFC-5890CN All-In-One Inkjet Printer

farmerroy, Ebay
9 March 2010
  • Summary: Owned 4 Brother Multifunction printers previously; very good reliability, print quality, economical ink cartridges, and ease of maintenance. This model doesn't live up to the reputation of previous models. Not wireless, manual is not user-friendly, the fax function is unnecessarily complicated and not TAD-friendly, print speed is slow, does not live up to advertised pages-per-minute in B/W or Color. However, the print quality is laser-perfect.

Glossy paper feed problem

Mr Nomad, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: The only problem I've detected is the printer's inability to feed glossy paper properly. If you put in more than 3 sheets of glossy paper, it simply does not feed.

good hardware with nice features, pity about the software

Dave "techdragon", Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: We recently upgraded a lot of our printers in work, with these or variations on this model like the A3 scanner version. As all the installations were straight forward and i've found the hardware to be fairly flexible, when I had to upgrade my home printer I went for one of these. The initial installation seemed to go fine, I was aware from previous installations that the software that ships with the printer doesn't work properly with Microsoft Office 2010, for instance...

warning

R. Moore "Ros Moore", Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: Be warned this printer is NOT COMPATABLE with Windows 7, you will have to go on the Brother web site to get the available upgrade. And then install it on your computer. After all Windows 7 has been out for at least a year. A big Black mark to Amazon for not letting potential customers know this, there is no mention at all on the order page.We had to find out from the Brother web site.

Scanning problems

C. Leigh "parrymead", Amazon
26 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought this specifically to photocopy and scan. I have not set up the fax so cannot comment on this. Photocopying is quick and easy and produces good copies. I have printed from the computer which gives good results. I have not tried the A3 facility yet. Scanning is more problematic. When I use the touch button in the control centre, it starts scanning process but then freezes my Mac computer and I have had to switch it off at the mains in order to clear.

Befriedigende Resultate

Simpit, Amazon
25 December 2009
  • Summary: Das Mutlifunktionsgerät macht verarbeitungsmäßig einen soliden Eindruck. Die software- und hardwareseitige Menüführung ist jedoch umständlich und bietet zu wenige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten. Die Druckergebnisse sind gut, die Ergebnisse beim Scannen (zu diesem Zweck wurde das Gerät angeschafft) äußerst mittelmäßig. Selbst bei Einstellung höherer Auflösung ist das Bild körnig. Detailauflösung und Farbe entsprechen nie dem Orginal.
