Brother MFC-J5945DW printer
The color display and control panel are a good size too. The 9.3cm touchscreen is reasonably responsive and is set in a tilting panel that makes it very easy to operate.
This big Brother blurs the line between home printer and office printer by combining the fast print speed and high capacity of a laser machine with the superior photo finish of an inkjet. We would recommend it for both applications because although it is smaller than the laser equivalent MFC-L8690CDW, the inkjet MFC-J5945DW can handle A3 paper. There’s really nothing that this fully featured 4-in-1 can’t do and it carries out all tasks satisfactorily.
If you assumed that laser printing is for the office and inkjets are only good for printing photos at home, think again. The X Series from Brother introduces five inkjet machines that are all aimed at the small to medium-sized business (SMB). The Brother MFC-J5945DW is the more affordable of a trio of four-in-one multifunction devices and costs £419 (around $534, or AU$739) including VAT.
Because inkjet technology takes up less room than laser, Brother has been able to cram more paper and ink capacity into this fairly compact desktop unit. In fact, it can even print onto A3-sized paper, be that plain or glossy. It comes bundled with standard-sized ink cartridges, but with high-yield cartridges available and able to deliver 6,000 pages, this MFP’s running costs are actually lower than some laser printers.
