What is the Brother MFC-J6920DW?

Brother introduced a redesigned small business, inkjet printer range last year, the most interesting features of which were its ability to print A4 pages in landscape mode and print occasional A3 pages, through a slot at the back. Now the company has expanded the range with true A3 machines and at the top of the range is the MFC-J6920DW.

Brother MFC-J6920DW – Design and Features

Using the same, clean-cut black and white styling as earlier machines in the range, this A3 printer manages a surprisingly modest footprint. This is largely due to the fact that both the paper trays, each of which can take up to a healthy 250 sheets, are telescopic and only need to be expanded when printing A3. Either tray can also take A4 paper and the top one can take sizes down to 15 x 10cm.

The top of the machine is stepped, to accommodate the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), which can also take A3 originals. The left-hand half of the top cover swings over to become the ADF feed tray and the lid, although substantial, has extending hinges for scanning bound documents.

The control panel looks surprisingly blank, as its 93mm touchscreen is supported on the right-hand side by a series of context-sensitive dedicated touch buttons, including a number pad for fax dialling, and on the left-hand side by a Near Field Communication (NFC) area for easy mobile device connection.

In a printing context, NFC enables quick wireless links from phones and tablets, without compromising network security. It means that simply by touching your device to the NFC area on printers such as this one, a connection is made so you can print documents or photos.

To the right of the control panel, a pull-down cover reveals the four ink jet cartridges which slide into place in moments. The XL black cartridge is rated at 2,400 A4 pages, so you won’t need to be changing it every few days.

To the left, behind a similar cover, are card sockets for SD and MemoryStick and a USB socket, which also supports PictBridge. Support software includes Nuance PaperPort 12 as well as Brother’s own MFL-Pro suite.
