Flagship model offers direct uploading

Brother International has announced a new range of low-cost small-office or home-office All-in-One (AiO) color inkjet printers ranging from $100 to $150 that feature Mac and Windows software, a front-loading four-cartridge ink system, free phone technical support and (coming at the end of the year) mobile device remote printing options. The flagship model offers built-in two-sided printing and CD/DVD direct printing, along with direct uploading to select websites.

The printers, which will hit stores beginning in September, all feature wireless networking (802.11b/g/n), a built-in fax modem and wireless printing via AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Brother iPrint&Scan or CortadoWorkplace, along with a one-year limited warranty. The wireless printing apps for smartphones and tablets will arrive in Q1 of 2012.

The MFC-J280W and J430W both offer a 100-sheet paper tray, 600x1200 dpi print resolution, 1.9-inch LCD touch panel and fast printing speeds of up 33 pages per minute (monochrome) or 10 ppm (color). Both will retail for $100, with the J430W also offering a 20-sheet auto document feeder.

The more expensive MFC-J625W, which retails for $130, will offer all the features of the $100 models plus a faster print engine (up to 35 or 12 ppm in monochrome or color respectively), a 20-sheet photo bypass tray and built-in duplex printing. It will also handle direct photo printing from media cards or USB flash drives, and a longer 2-year warranty.

The flagship model, the MFC-J825DW, sells for $150 and features a larger 3.3-inch touchscreen color LCD display, disc printing, a wired Ethernet network option, a 33.6Kbps fax modem and direct uploading to to Facebook, Picasa web album, Flickr, Google Docs or Evernote accounts via the Web Connect Touchscreen.

All four printers include Brother Creative Center, a web portal to create and print free templates for standard projects. The printers are designed to work with Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 or later, or Windows XP SP2 or higher.

    Low Cost misleading???

    Maybe by now it is widely accepted that the cost of a printer is based not on the retail price of the printer but rather on it's ink consumption rate and the cost of replacing cartridges. Maybe this IS a low-cost printer as the article claims but the article does not provide any evidence.
