Buying a printer together with CISS is economically sound. Continuous Ink Supply System by INKSYSTEM ensures stable and qualitative printing and lessens your financial expenditures at the same time.

MFC-5490CN Brother: the best solution for home and small office use

The MFC-5490CN Brother inkjet printer has already been presented to Users as multifunction device. Today we want to draw your attention to it again. The MFD is a 4-in-1 printer, which can print, scan, copy and use the built-in fax. The MFC-5490CN multifunction printer is equipped with a 50-page automatic document supplier which works with the printer as a wire network.

The device is not provided with a color LCD display which disappoints, especially because the Manufacturer offers to use the original PictBridge periphery and memory card slots for wireless network printing and scanning without using a computer.

The MFC-5490CN multifunction device uses improved cartridges, which consist of four ink tanks. The MFC-5490CN Brother multifunction printer offers wide capabilities for document scanning, printing and copying. Besides, it provides quality fax functioning, which makes it perfect for a home office.

The Newest Design

Printer Brother MFC-5490CNThe MFC-5490CN Brother device, which has an attractive and ergonomic design, is a compact facility capable to print, copy and scan color documents and photos either at home or in a small office. The MFC-5490CN dimensions are 440x403x222 mm, which lets Users to install it without problem on any horizontal surface, even if there is not enough free space.

The PictBridge connection enables the Users to print their digital photos from any mobile devices without using a computer or a notebook. Direct printing can also be provided when a saver is connected to a compact flash port or a card reader and a USB port. On the top of MFC-5490CN Brother MFD there is a 50-page automatic document supplier. This provides easy copying and scanning, thereat, the results of the letter can be saved directly in a PDF file.

Cartridge Installation

Although the most setups of the MFC 5490CN Brother printer, as well as those of MFC-5890CN and MFC-J615W Brother, are easy enough, a lot of Users noticed during expositions in London, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, and Nottingham, that the disposition of the cartridges was inconvenient.

The cartridge replacement really demands some extra training and takes some extra time. However, as soon as the cartridges are replaced, the MFC-5490CN Brother automatically adjusts them and cleans the printing area. This process takes about four minutes.

After the printing quality is checked, the soft wear setup follows, that means that the MCF-5490CN Brother operation adjustment is a difficult process. When installing the MFD, you also need to lift up the scanner glass in order to insert the USB cable, which must run into the printer along a narrow groove before the cover goes down.

The Manufacturer confirms that MCF-5490CN Brother is able to print documents with black ink at the rate of 35 pages per minute, whereat color documents can be printed at the rate of 28 pages per minute. When normal or improved printing modes are used, the image colors are brighter and the text is as black as coal. When photos are printed, the colors look real enough, but the background is too dark. The maximum paper density accepted by this printer is 220 g/m2. Some photo paper samples are too heavy and can not be used by the MFD.
