The Brother MFC-6490CW All-in-One Printer may be twice as big as any other all-in-one printer, but it sure is worth the extra space. This printer-slash-scanner-slash-fax machine-slash-copier can print an A4 spread in one A3 pass.
Producing large prints will not be too much of a problem anymore.
Copy, Scan and Fax Multiple Documents
Booklets and newsletters can now be easily produced by this office printer. That’s a big advantage because you can now just fold down the printed material and youâ€™re done. You donâ€™t have to purchase any other special printer for this.
The same goes with when youâ€™re printing posters and large-sized notices. Now, you donâ€™t have to limit yourself from other possibilities; you can expand your imagination to up to 11 x 17 inches!
Since this is an all-in-one machine, you can do more than print files from this versatile colored printer. You can also scan images, fax files and even copy multiple documents. No need to purchase a separate copier, fax machine, or scanner. All you need is the Brother MFC-6490CW.
If youâ€™re worrying about the quality of the images it produces, well, donâ€™t fret. You see, the quality of its print is so stunning that you canâ€™t really tell much of the difference between the highest quality printing setting and the next step down. Both deliver picture value that is fine in terms of details, with little to no distortions at all. It can produce documents with resolutions of up to 6000 x 1200dpi.
The scanner, fax and copier functions of the Brother MFC-6490CW All-in-One Printer are impressive as well. The flatbed can support documents with sizes of up to 11×17 inches. You can use the document glass to scan, fax or copy your documents, or load them in the auto document feeder. The auto document feeder can support as many as 50 pages, so when dealing with tasks that require a large number of pages, all you have to do is load your paper in the bin and the Brother MFC-6490CW will do the work for you. Talk about total convenience.
Speaking of convenience, thanks to the built-in wireless and wired interfaces of this multi-function center, you can use the printer with more than one computer. Yes, you can use it with either your wired or wireless router and share it with everyone in your office so that they can print, scan, and fax straight from their computers too. Now they won’t need to transfer files from one computer to the other.
And when I say you don’t need to transfer files from one computer to the other, I am not just talking about the connectivity with the PC alone. How about this: you can now print your pictures directly from you digital cameraâ€™s media cards or USB flash memory. Access these pictures through a control panel at the front of the all-around-printer with a widescreen LCD (84mm diagonally), and start printing!
The cartridge and paper handling are also commendable. Up to 400 sheets of paper can fit the printerâ€™s dual paper trays. The first tray holds up to 150 sheets of 3.5 x 5-inch papers and ledger 11 x 17-inch sized. The second tray can support up to 250 sheets of letter up to ledger 11 x 17-inch sized paper.
Versatility to the fullest extent of the word â€“ the Brother MFC-6490CW All-in-One Printer is really a big innovation for your printing, scanning, copying and faxing tasks.
