Brother MFC-5890CN Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother MFC-5890CN printer

Our Verdict:

A multifunction built for office use, the Brother MFC-5890CN also appeals to home users, thanks to its excellent photo printing options. The machine offers a good range of office friendly features, although tested print speeds are not as impressive as expected. The Brother MFC-5890CN can print 35ppm in black and white and up to 28ppm in colour, although these numbers decrease when the print quality is increased. This multifunction is a good choice for SOHO environments, although its slow print speeds and lack of fax capabilities may leave office users looking for a more versatile model.


The Brother MFC-5890CN measures approximately 9.5x19.1x16.1 inches, and is only 23.6 pounds in weight. It may not be as compact as many MFPs, but its feature set can justify the bulk. The Brother MFC-5890CN has an automatic document feeder that can handle up to 50 pages at a time. A flat bed scanner is also included, as well as several media card slots for digital camera memory sticks. A USB port and a PictBridge slot is also at hand for printing directly from thumb drives and other compatible devices.


Some advantages of using the Brother MFC-5890CN include low cost per page, (ink tanks can yield up to 700-900 pages), colour LCD display for previewing photos, as well as good print quality, especially for text and photos.


The Brother MFC-5890CN however, does not cut it when it comes to print speed, and print quality can be improved. Low printing costs however, make this machine a good get especially for home users.
