The Brother MFC-9010CN color laser printer is a multifunction device designed for the home or small office environment. It has has a wide array of well-designed functions, but lack of faxing capabilities might be an issue for some buyers.
The Brother MFC-9010CN color laser printer, also referred to as the MFC-9010, combines a very fast color printing engine with a multifunction design that allows users to print, scan, and copy. It has a 35-sheet automatic document feeder, which makes scanning and copying multiple pages quick and easy. Some high-volume users might wish for a larger 50-sheet ADF, but for the typical home or small office environment, it should be more than enough. The unit also includes ethernet networking, making it easy to connect it to a network for sharing among multiple computers.
Scans can be sent to a variety of locations, including a network folder, email, and FTP. This is a very convenient feature that allows users to scan a document directly to their networked computer effortlessly.
Due to its multifunction features, the machine is a little on the bulkier side for a home or small office unit. It measures 15.7 inches by 16.9 inches by 19.3 inches and weighs 50 pounds.
Brother MFC-9010CN toner cartridges have somewhat small capacities, which results in a higher cost per page. Each color laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 1,400 pages, while the single black printer toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,200 pages. Using third-party compatible cartridges will reduce toner costs.
Print speed is fast, at up to 17 pages per minute in both monochrome and color. Print quality is mixed. Text is very sharp, but color prints lack some definition, with fuzzy edges, especially for text.
Overall, the Brother MFC-9010CN makes a great choice for a multifunction device. Its fast color speeds are impressive for the price, but high toner costs make it more expensive to operate than competing models.
