    Brother MFC5890CN

    As per other Brother products I have had its an excellent all round MFC which lacks nothing. Versatile and easy to setup and use and accomodating A3 paper as well for the price! Watch out for the USB & Network ports under the scanner glass(lift up) a bit unuusual rather than being on the back but not for Brother! Very easy ink replacement and ink tanks not sitting on printhead, therefoe no fiddling around when setting up. The only criticism and this is digging deep is perhaps this model more reflects slightly older styling than some of the more sleek looks. The inks are also reasonable value and non chipped. In my opinion hard to beat
