Brother MFC 6490CW

Brother finished the week with news of an update to its MFC series all-in-one color inkjet printers with the MFC-6490CW. The device is billed as one of the first at its $300 price to build color printing, faxing, and scanning into one printer while also adding extra-large printing. The tabletop printer is large enough to capture and produce 11-by-17 inch ledger prints, and can potentially save an expensive run to a custom printing location, Brother claims. The extra size similarly allows books and other texts larger than letter size to be scanned in.

Regular printing is also estimated to be quick with 35 black-and-white or 28 color pages per second.

The unit is also wireless and will link with any supporting 802.11b or 11g Wi-Fi computer to give full fax, print, and scan access over the local network; like earlier higher-end Brother printers, the 6490CW has a widescreen LCD that both supplies more room for menus as well as helps for previewing photos printed directly either from a PictBridge-capable camera or from the printer's card reader. Ethernet is also an option for hardwired printer sharing.

Brother said the printer will be available this July.

    Uhm...

    "Quick"? At 28-35 pages per SECOND its frigging super sonic.

    Availability

    This is already out, I just stocked it on my shelf earlier this week.

    And it's not that fast, HP and Epson both have inkjet machines that can print a couple pages per minute faster.

    This thing is massive though.
