With the MFC-J5930DW, Brother has married functionality with smart features to create an all-in-one for busy offices that need to print, scan, copy and fax documents fast.
At just £322.80, the MFC-J5930DW packs in a lot of features. It has wireless, USB and wired network capabilities, and it supports all the major mobile connectivity options. It also can print directly from most major social media sites and can upload to and print from the most popular cloud storage sites. That means it can upload to and print from just about any device practically seamlessly.
It can hold up to 600 pages – 250 in the standard tray, 250 in the lower one and 100 in the multipurpose tray – and it also has an automatic document feeder for the copier/scanner that can handle 50 pages in one go. Of course, it can be hard to keep track of that much paper, so the MFC-J5930DW will also tell you when the paper is low.
When it comes to printing, Brother thinks fast with this machine. In fast mode, the MFC-J5930DW can print up to 35 pages per minute (ppm) mono and 27ppm colour, and it can print 22 black and white images per minute (ipm) mono and 20ipm in colour. And unlike many other printers on the market, it can print in sizes up to A3, all from an A4 footprint.
Finally, its 9.3cm colour LCD Touchscreen helps you navigate the nearly endless options clearly and easily.
It’s not enough that it has so much to offer, however. It also helps you save money in the long run. Brother has designed their office printers to be compatible with high-yield toners that can print up to 3000 pages without needing to be changed, which drives down the cost per page. And the MFC-J5930DW is also Blue Angel and Energy Star accredited, so the energy-saving printer can also help keep bills down.
All in all, the MFC-J5930DW is a powerful printer at a great price point. It is on the larger side, so you won’t want to share a desk with it, but if you need a fast, affordable printer that keeps running costs low, this is the printer for you.
