MFC-6890CDW

 

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

Brother MFC-6890CDW Printer Review

 

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

Very slow on all tests ; Very expensive to buy

If you need tabloid printing, this machine offers it; but there are speed and cost tradeoffs.

Brother MFC-6890cdw review

 

Good print quality ; 11 x 17 inch prints, scans, copies ; Built-in networking with remote setup ; Large paper capacity ; Comes with high-capacity cartridges

Slow to average print speeds ; No built-in scan software

Half the connection ports are located on the left side of the printer. The MFC-6890cdw comes with an attached power cord (never worry about losing it!) as well as two phone jacks. For access to the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 or Ethernet ports, users will need to...

Review: Brother MFC-6890CDW multifunction device

 

For those looking for a tabloid-sized multifunction printer, the MFC-6890CDW is a decent option. It has a ton of features and prints good quality office documents.

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 MFC-6890CDW inkjet multifunction

 

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

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

Poor quality LCD panel, slow print speeds, no Web-based interface

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.

Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

Can this feature-packed A3 multifunction printer find its niche with home users?

A3 printing in a compact size ; Feature-packed ; Great touchscreen controls

Workmanlike print quality

The feature range is welcome but let down by dull, lifeless printouts

Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

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

Brother MFC-6890CDW review

 

But as with similar products we've tested, the Brother MFC-6890CDW's talent comes at a price. Furthermore, it's a very slow performer.

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.
