The Brother MFC-6890CDW is a full-featured multifunction inkjet with the added ability to print on larger formats, up to tabloid size. Its extra features result in a higher price, however, so only small office users who need them should consider it. Brother MFC-6890CDW ink is affordable when using the high-yield cartridges. Print speeds are rated at 35 pages per minute for black and 20 pages per minute for color, but printing at higher resolutions is slower.
Brother MFC-6890CDW ink cartridges come in two sizes, standard and high-yield. The high-yield black Brother MFC-6890CDW ink cartridge has a capacity of 900 pages, while the individual color printer ink tanks have a capacity of 700 pages each. For the most cost-effective printing, users should choose the high-yield versions, as they have a much lower cost per page.
The Brother MFC-6890CDW's main draw is its large format printing. It supports paper sizes all the way up to tabloid size. While this is an excellent feature that is rare to find in inkjet models, users who don't need it may want to look elsewhere, as it comes at a premium price. The unit can print, scan, copy, and fax. It has a large paper capacity of 350 sheets, which is more than the average multifunction. It also includes automatic duplexing and both wired and wireless networking support.
PC World gave the Brother MFC-6890CDW a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. They praised its ability to print on large formats and its economical print costs when using the high-yield printer ink. They thought its printing speeds were very slow in testing and that its expensive price may not be justified if you don't need large format printing.
Overall, the Brother MFC-6890CDW has a lot of excellent features to offer a small office user. Users may be paying extra for features they don't really need, however.
