Brother - MP-21CDX

 

According to Brother, this is the smallest portable colour inkjet printer in the world, and we've certainly seen nothing quite as compact as the MP-21CDX. It's a small oblong object, with single sheets of paper being ...

The PC Card interface is a sensible idea for mobile users, since it reduces cable clutter and means that you could, for short periods, print using just your notebook's battery. Given the low power requirements of the MPC-21CDX, it surely can't be long...

A grade

 

The Brother fax roll PC-402RF is great if you try it. Ensures smooth error free service.

Item works fine, just replace the ribbon on the old cartridge with this. A nice, cheap alternative to buying new cartridges all the time.

Product Specifications

The MP-21CDX mobile color inkjet printer is a two-pound traveling wonder that is equally at home on the desktop. Brother includes a PCMCIA interface to connect to your laptop on the road, and a parallel port for your desktop PC back at the office. You won't sacrifice performance for convenience, either. Get up to 720 dpi results in both color and monochrome with Piezo inkjet printing technology. Prints speeds average 2 ppm for color, slightly faster for monochrome prints. To use the MP-21CDX on the road, just insert the included PCMCIA card with cable into a laptop's PCMCIA slot. No other connections are necessary, as the printer receives power and data through the PCMCIA slot. For desktop use, add the AC adapter for power and parallel cable to the PC. The straight paper path reduces jams and misfeeds of paper and envelopes up to legal size. The automatic document feeder pops up for use at the office and holds up to 30 pages. The printer uses two ink cartridges, a black/cyan and a magenta/yellow cartridge that are simple to replace. The black/cyan has a 250-page yield, the magenta/yellow has a 150-page yield. The MP-21CDX is compatible with notebooks running Windows 3.1, 95/98 and Windows NT 4.0, and comes with 31 TrueType fonts.
