Small Offices Win Laser-Like Print Costs And Speed With Affordable Brother Inkjet

At just $299, Brother’s new flagship MFC-J5720DW print/copy/scan and fax centre lets office managers provide teams with superior inkjet colour quality and up-front price, now with laser-comparable speed and running costs. Let’s take a closer look.

Developed with business users’ needs at the heart of the design, the MFC-J5720DW supports super high yield ink cartridges. This allows it to produce black and white prints at an incredible 2.3 cents per page (LC-239XL BK ink: 2400 pages using ISO/IEC 24711 test standards). Perfect for small business.

The design includes an easy-to-use 9.3cm touchscreen LCD and innovative landscape printing technology for an unobtrusive space-saving footprint. Its A3 capability allows users to print detailed spreadsheets, precise blueprints and stunning photographs in impactful A3 format.

Comprehensive paper handling include automatic
2-sided scanning / up to A4, and an up to 50-sheet automatic document feeder.

The MFC-J5720DW also introduces a multi-purpose tray that handles up to 80 sheets in A4, or 5 sheets in A3. Together with its dual trays that offer 500-sheet capacity for paper up to A3 size, switching between printing envelopes, labels and paper of varied thickness and size is a breeze.

This superior paper handling cuts down the hassle of frequent paper reloading, and provides greater versatility to users.
With built-in Wi-Fi, the Brother MFC-J5720DW can print from Apple, Android and Windows smartphones or tablets (via AirPrint/Wi-Fi Direct/Brother’s iPrint&Scan app) and has built-in slots for printing from or scanning to USB drives and media cards.

This also allows it to print documents directly from popular online storage services such as Google Docs/Drive, DropBox, OneDrive, Evernote, Box, OneNote, Facebook and Flickr. You can also scan documents and photos directly to these same services.

The surprising $299 MFC-J5720DW sets the benchmark to compare any new small office/home office multifunction inkjet against. Learn more at Brother Australia. Available from The Good Guys, Dick Smith, Officeworks, Harvey Norman and authorised dealers.
