Brother MFC-9970CDW All-in-One Color Laser Printer
24 April 2013
Zusammenfassung: The MFC-9970CDW is big and heavy, and fairly pricey. But for offices and small workgroups, this color laser printer with built-in fax, copier, and scanner, and automatic document feeder may be the ticket to a well-organized office. The automatic duplex printing, scanning, and faxing is an excellent feature, and though first pages take some time to print, the printer is very fast once it's going, putting out almost 30 pages per minute.
Pro: Can print, scan, copy, fax up to legal size paper, Built-in wired and wireless networking, Automatic duplex printing, scanning, faxing, Fairly fast once it gets going, Large touchscreen
Kontra: Large footprint, and quite heavy, Despite the touchscreen, still a cluttered interface, Slow to put out first pages, Some paper curl
Zusammenfassung: This printer has an autoduplex feature (automatic two-sided printing), but a downside is that the paper tray only holds 250 sheets, definitely not enough for a busy office. However, you can purchase a second paper tray, also holding 250 sheets. The scanner has a 50-sheet automatic document feeder and a very useful duplex scanning function that reads both sides of a document at once.
Pro: Excellent text quality, Easy-to-use system menu, 5-inch color touch screen
Kontra: Mediocre graphic quality, Small paper tray capacity, Toner issues
Ergebnis: The Brother MFC-9970CDW's output quality is a little disappointing for graphics and photos, but the color laser multifunction printer offers fast speed, high quality text, and lots of features.
Pro: Fast. Touch screen for easier scanning, faxing, and copying from the front panel. Prints from and scans to USB key. Direct Email.
Kontra: Output quality is a touch below par for graphics and significantly below par for photos.
