Brother MFC-990CW

Triple-interface connectivity includes USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet LAN; interactive 4.2-inch touch-screen LCD; 5.8GHz digital handset and answering machine built-in; inexpensive; small and stylish.

Slow print speed; suffers the same mechanical errors affecting other Brother printers; ships with starter ink cartridges; short one-year warranty; no USB cord included.

The Brother MFC-990CW is a speedy, fully capable all-in-one device that earns our recommendation for an individual or a family that will make use of its touch screen and telephone/answering machine. Mechanical issues notwithstanding, this is the...

Brother MFC-990CW- With Touch Screen LCD And Cordless Handset

 

Brother is a big name in the multi function devices (MFD) industry. This time they are out with a touch screen printer. The touch screen LCDs let you access functions by just tapping your finger on the screen but it does get the price up. We don't know...

Touch screen LCD, Ethernet LAN, Wi-fi, cordless handset, built in answering machine, inexpensive

Slow print speeds, printer comes bundled in with small ink cartridges, one year warranty; instead of standard two year

We were fully satisfied with the performance of Brother MFC-990CW. Sure it has some drawbacks like Ethernet and USB ports are located inside printer but the great printouts eclipse these shortcoming, we will recommend this printer for home use.

Brother MFC-990CW

 

A Brother inkjet multifunction with features galore.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic document feeder, dedicated photo media tray, detailed and fast scans, touch panel

Print speeds are horribly slow, some photo quality inconsistencies, poor colour accuracy in scanned images

Brother's MFC-990CW is a trade-off between features and quality. Although you do get a lot for the price, basic functions like printing and scanning could be improved.

It's a great package if you need all the features, but shop around if print quality is your number-one priority.
