The Brother MFC-5890CN is a multifunction printer designed for the home or small office user. It has a wide range of office features, excellent photo printing options, and includes ethernet networking for sharing. Prints speeds are rated at up to 35 pages per minute for black and 28 pages per minute for color printer ink. Brother MFC-5890CN ink tends to be a little less expensive than competing models.
Even with so much functionality, the Brother MFC-5890CN still keeps things fairly compact. It measures 9.5 inches by 19.1 inches by 16.1 inches, and weighs 23.6 pounds. With larger page yields than average, Brother MFC-5890CN inkjet cartridges have a somewhat lower cost per page. The black printer ink tank has a page yield of 900 pages, while the individual color tanks have a page yield of 700 pages each. Using third-party compatible Brother MFC-5890CN ink cartridges will help keep costs even lower.
The Brother MFC-5890CN can print, scan, copy and fax. It also has a 50-page automatic document feeder for quickly scanning multiple pages. A flatbed scanner is included for scanning media that won't fit in the document feeder. The unit has a 3.3 inch full-color display, which makes it easy to preview photos before printing. It has slots for digital camera media cards and a USB port that can accept thumb drives or PictBridge enabled cameras. This makes printing without a computer easy to do.
In their review of the Brother MFC-5890CN inkjet printer, CNET liked its low printing costs and its two-year warranty. They thought its printing quality was poor and its printing speed was slow. They also found its setup procedure to be difficult.
Overall, the Brother MFC-5890CN has a lot of great features that should appeal to home and small office users, but its print speeds are not as fast as rated, and its print quality is in question.
