Brother MFC-9970CDW

 

The Brother MFC-9970CDW color laser multifunction printer delivers speed, features, and high quality text for a small to medium size office or workgroup.

Fast. Touch screen for easier scanning, faxing, and copying from the front panel. Prints from and scans to USB key. Direct Email.

Output quality is a touch below par for graphics and significantly below par for photos.

Brother MFC-9970CDW review

 

Kat Orphanides examines a multifunction printer that does everything but make the tea.

We were impressed with both the quality and performance of the MFC-9970CDW. The only qualitative point on which we were less than perfectly happy was a slight red tint on our photo prints. However, photo printing isn’t a priority for most office...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

LINUX approved!

 

Newegg shipped promptly and this unit was packaged so well from Brother that it did not require double packing. This was a Christmas gift to ourselves (after much research).

This is Brother's "flagship" MFC product. And to be honest, its an awesome printer overall! Brother is supporting linux better than any other vendor. It scans so well that it is almost impossible to tell the copy from the original (and this is in...

Prints photo's too dark. but you can lighten them prior to printing. Paper a bit difficult to remove from output hopper (should have some raised ridges). Only thing missing is a button to output a blank sheet of paper (but I don't believe any other...
