Ledger-size products like Brother's MFC-6890CDW color inkjet multifunction printer let you skip the local print shop and print a wider (literally) range of documents in-house. But as with similar products we've tested (including the HP OfficeJet...

Prints and scans tabloid-size media High-yield inks are economical

Very slow on all tests Very expensive to buy

If you want wide-format printing capabilities, you need a machine like the Brother MFC-6890CDW. But this model is so expensive and slow that my enthusiasm for it is lukewarm at best

Since the MFC-6890CDW can print and scan documents as large as 11-by-17 inches, it’s big and bulky. There are two input trays; the top tray holds up to 100 sheets and the bottom tray can handle up to 250. Multiple trays make it easy to keep the printer...

Brother's top-of-the-line A3 inkjet multifunction has automatic duplex and Wi-Fi connectivity

 

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.

Good print quality, comprehensive feature set, A3 media capability, function lock, reasonable running costs

It's cheap to run and relatively cheap to buy, but poor print quality and speeds mean we can't recommend it.
