Ultimately it has to be asked whether the advantages of having affordable A3 printing in the home are outweighed by the painfully slow printing process and at best indifferent output quality offered by the MFC-6890CDW. Brother - MFC-6890CDW...

The Brother MFC-6890CDW has intuitive onboard controls, and the oversized A3 scanner is equally easy to use. The optical quality is more than good enough for photocopying, although its no match for a dedicated photo scanner for serious photographic...

The MFC-6890CDW is cheap to run and relatively inexpensive to buy, with generally good print quality. It has a decent range of features, including both duplex printing and scanning, but we were disappointed by its lack of a web interface and irritated...

As far as we know, Brother has a complete monopoly of inkjet all-in-ones capable of printing A3 pages. Clearly the company sees this as a useful niche market, as it has a range of machines that can handle the larger size. The MFC-6890CDW is the...

Despite slow print speeds, Brother’s MFC-6890CDW multifunction printer provides quality A3 prints backed by a comprehensive feature set. It won’t replace a dedicated photo printer, but can produce in-house marketing materials with good...

Verdict: Its cheap to run and relatively cheap to buy, but poor print quality and speeds mean we cant recommend it. Brothers MFC-6890CDW inkjet printer is designed to provide a busy home office with production-quality printing and scanning. In...

Ledger-size products like Brothers MFC-6890CDW color inkjet multifunction printer let you skip the local print shop and print a wider (literally) range of documents in-house. But as with similar products weve tested (including the HP OfficeJet...

Brother has done it again, putting out a top-quality color inkjet printer that can handle just about any small-office tasks with skill and good results. Its slow print speeds across a wireless network make it less than optimal for lots of small print...

Avec sa panoplie d'options (écran tactile, fax, A3, deux bacs, chargeur de documents...), cette imprimante trouve complètement sa place sur le marché. Il y a des lacunes, mais pour un usage bureautique surtout, occasionnel en photo :...
