Brother has come out with a wide format printer for only 200 bucks. The MFC-5890CN is part of the ‘Professional Series’ line of Brother all-in-one printers. Combining the capability to print, scan, fax and copy the company is marketing these for business users who would like the ability to make ledger size prints.
Big prints make for a better impact in any presentation, and pretty pictures to hang on the wall are no exception. I don’t know how these would hold up for photo printing, but considering the price it might be worth checking out. Big 11″x17″ prints have always been a pretty sweet size for prints.
Also announced was the MFC-5490CN for $129, which handles the same tasks, but only prints up to 8.5”x14”. The wide format MFC-5890CN will be available in September and the MFC-5490CN goes on sale in October. Pictured is the MFC-6490CW, the currently available all-in-one from the ‘Professional Series’.
