Cons: Some slow print speeds, especially across the network, Jumbo size may challenge small offices, Expensive

Summary: Despite slow print speeds, Brother's MFC-6890CDW multifunction printer provides quality A3 prints backed by a comprehensive feature set. It won't replace a dedicated photo printer, but can produce in-house marketing materials with good results.
Pros: Good print quality, comprehensive feature set, A3 media capability, function lock, reasonable running costs
Summary: I get the chance to look at a lot of A4 multi function machines but very few A3 ones often because of the size; those I do see are normally laser units here just for a change is an A3 ink jet offering from Brother .
