"Don't know which printer the reviewer was playing with"
13 August 2013
Pros: Easy to install, economical ink usage, a bonus of being able to print up to A3 as needed - AND to print wireless via my router.
Cons: I think my particular machine has a gremlin that takes delight in changing my printer settings from time to time, it will tell me I have the wrong paper size when - no - it's the right size. Have no idea why this happens.
Summary: Comments about Brother Professional MFC-5890CN Multifunction Printer: Use it frequently for my own business. All functions are great and super easy to use. fast, quality printing for inkjet also. [...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: The Brother MFC (Multi Funtion Center) series is a great all around printer that will give you solid service. I have had similar HP units and the Brother has out performed them hands down. Some folks are not happy with the speed of printing photos, and I am not one for exceptional patience in this respect, but I do not think the few seconds difference in time required is worth sacrificing the quality of photos you can get from the Brother series.
Summary: I give it a 4 because aint nothin perfetc. We use this AIO at home for personal stuff, although I occasionally bring home work and print documents for work. I basically bought this model because of the 11 x 17 capability and have been pleased with the overall quality in printing, copying and scanning. I don't fax. I printed some pictures at 11 x 17 of my grandkids that were on the internet at low resolution, so low that the print program advised against printing them.
Pros: I really don't believe the review posted by the 'professional' reviewer. Did he not look at the list of features? He NEVER mentioned the unique feature of this printer-printing 11x17 pages. Of course the printer is big-so is the output!
