All-in-one Brother MFC-990CW with CISS
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. While buying CISS with printer you start saving prior to printing as the cost of the set is lower than cost of both products separately.
Advantages of CISS:
  • containers of higher capacity
  • the most cost-effective printing
  • lower risk of printing system airing due to absence of contact between printing head and air while refill
Continuous Ink Supply System is a specially constructed ink containers of high capacity that ensure printing of higher amount of imprints per one refill. Printing becomes several times cheaper because you pay for CISS only once and after that purchase inks but not plastic tanks. These facts distinguish the continuous ink supply system from cartridges while purchasing of which you have to overpay for plastic construction itself. The average cost of printing A4-format page using CISS is 0.002 EUR.

When buying a MF with CISS INKSYSTEM, you will pay only 0.034 £ for a full-color A-4 format printing.

MFC-990CW Brother: All in One

Usually the MFD abbreviation means so called "four-in-one" devices which combine printer, scanner, fax and copier. The new product of Brother Company, which is MFC-990CW, beside those four functions can operate as a DECT-telephone and a digital answerback unit, which is sufficient.

Surely, the Manufacturers could not neglect such a popular feature as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth operation, as well as the possibility to control the most of the functions by means of a big sensor display, which is the top of fashion now.

Printer Brother MFC-990CW

Exterior and Control Elements

As the MFC-990CW Brother inkjet printer takes the top position among the family of inkjet MFD's, it must have the respective exterior. Black color and smooth outlines make it look as an expensive machine. The approved tone decision emphasizes, that the device will not fit a crowded and busy office. It will much better look inside a quiet study or a home studio. Due to the Designers' decision to reduce glossy surfaces, the MFC-990CW Brother multifunction printer looks good enough, even after a long-term and not very careful operation.

Although all the device functions can be operated and controlled by means the LCD sensor panel, which starts and sets up all the printer modes, there are a lot of additional control elements around the panel.

Located to the left of the display is an ordinary number dialer, which is used for telephone and fax communication. More to the left there are digital answerback unit controls and printer ON/OFF buttons. Located to the right of the sensor display is a set of four buttons which provide the operation of the scanner, copier and PictBridge photo printer. The last two buttons to the right start document copying in color or black-and-white mode.

Interfaces and Connectors

As well as other representatives of this class (the Brother MFC-J220 and MFC-795CW), the front panel of the MFC-990CW Brother printer locates inputs for connecting SD/MS/CF/xd flash cards as well as PictBridge port, Walk-and-print port combined with USB port for connecting flash cards and outer hard discs. In fact, the User, who does not want to retouch his photos, can print them directly from any carrier. Besides, the device uses Blue Tooth function, which enables printing from mobile telephones and other BT-compatible devices.

In order to provide fax or telephone communication, the MFC-990CW multifunction device should be connected to the telephone line, for which purpose the device uses an ordinary connector. If needed, some extra telephone sets can be connected to the MFD outlet.

Of course, this kind of multifunction device can be connected not only by means of USB or Ethernet. The USB and Ethernet connectors are located inside the printer, which seems unusual. After the printer is connected, the cable appears protected from external effects. It cannot be occasionally disconnected or broken. The only inconvenience of such connection is that it shortens the cable. But this problem occurs only in case of USB connection.

Printing Functions

The MFD's are mostly used for printing (except of some cases, of course). The MFC-990CW Brother multifunctional printer uses classic four-color system with separate cartridges. Although it is not able to reproduce some tints while printing photos, its advantages are simplicity and low price.

However, the manufacturer is doing his best to improve the printing quality. For this purpose the device is supplied with Brother Innobella technologies, which use special inks and proper paper. As the device Designers assure, the 1.5 pl drop size makes the prints look like six-color ones. Besides it makes the printing process cheaper (the cartridges are designed to produce 450 monochromatic pages and 325 color pages).

All the above mentioned functions separately can be provided by a lot of distributed devices, but their combination create one rather modern integral MFD which is the MFC-990CW Brother. The device was successfully presented at technology expositions which took place in London, Manchester, Nottingham, Plymouth, Newcastle, where it gained high appreciation.

I ordered this model from this company. The device proved to be of really high quality. Delivery was late by half an hour, but it was not essential, because everything happens, you know.

This multifunctional device has a very hard case. Wireless connection is being configured with no problems. The prints themselves are clear and vivid. Earlier I had a laser printer, color printing in it is not particularly good, of course. Never heard of CISS before, but purchased the MFP with it. It is strange that such device is not very popular. Why should you overpay each time for chips and boxes of cartridges.
