The Brother MFC-5490CN multifunction printer takes some of the convenience features and great photo quality of its younger siblings and upgrades them with some business-centric features, such as a 50-pages ADF. The result is an affordable and compact machine that is equally well-suited for office or home use. Brother MFC-5490CN ink cartridges are inexpensive, and print speed is good, at up to 35 pages per minute for black and 28 pages per minute for color.
Some of its upgrades make it a bit larger than the other models in its line, but it is still quite compact. It measures 8.7 inches by 17.3 inches by 15.9 inches and weighs only 20.7 pounds. Its max print resolution of 1200 dpi makes for very sharp prints, though printing at the higher resolutions does slow down its print speed significantly. Brother MFC-5490CN inkjet cartridges have smaller capacities than some of the competition, and can be a bit more expensive than some competing models. Using third-party compatible Brother MFC-5490CN cartridges will help keep costs much lower, making it a very economical machine.
The Brother MFC-5490CN can print, copy, scan, and fax. It supports high-speed Super G3 faxing speeds, and the 50-page automatic document feeder makes faxing, copying, and scanning multiple pages quick and easy. A built-in ethernet port makes it easy to connect to a wired network.
User reviews of the Brother MFC-5490CN inkjet are very positive. Users like its affordable price and great feature set. Some users mention its excellent reliability. Some users found it to be a bit larger than expected, and some found the OEM ink cartridges to be expensive, but recommended using compatible cartridges instead.
Overall, the Brother MFC-5490CN combines the features of a solid photo printer and a robust office machine in an affordable and compact package. Home and small office users alike will find it to be a good fit for their needs.
