The Brother MFC-9420CN color laser printer is a multifunction device designed for small or home office users. If multi-function capability is not needed, see the Brother HL-2700 toner printer . With strong speeds and quality at an affordable price, and sporting a multitude of features, it has a lot to offer the home or small office.
The Brother MFC-9420CN laser printer is priced affordably for a color multifunction machine, and thus, it fits a niche for small or home office users on a budget who need its multifunction features, but also want color printing capabilities. If you do not need color printing or multifunction capability, consider the Brother HL-2040 toner printer.
The unit ships with standard Brother MFC-9420CN toner cartridges with capacities of 5,000 pages for black and 3,000 pages for each color laser toner cartridge, but these can be upgraded also to high-yield Brother toner cartridges. The high-yield printer toner cartridges have capacities of 10,000 pages for black and 6,600 for each color.
The design of the unit is much bulkier than either the inkjet models or dedicated laser models it is likely replacing, and is almost certainly too large to share a desk with its user. That is not to say that it is cumbersome, however, as it is average in size for a multifunction printer. At 76 pounds, it will take at least two people to move it around.
The multifunction capabilities of the machine include, printing, faxing, scanning and copying. Scans can be sent to either a networked PC or can be sent as an email directly from the machine. A flatbed scanning surface is available, as well as an automatic document feeder, which can hold up to 35 pages. Faxing can also be sent from and sent to a networked PC.
The printing speed is impressive, at around 31 pages per minute in monochrome and 8 pages per minute for color. Text quality is sharp and defined down to around a 5 pt font. Color print quality suffers from color inaccuracies and disappearing thin lines, but this is typical of many lasers, especially a multifunction laser.
Overall, the Brother MFC-9420CN is a solid choice for a small office that needs its multifunction capabilities and color printing. Its size and weight will make it difficult to fit into the smallest office spaces.
