BROTHER MFC-J2720

HWM (Singapore) - - TEST -

The MFC-J2720 is Brother’s flag­ship inkjet printer for 2014, and it comes with fea­tures that make it suit­able for your small of­fice. Scan­ning and fax is a given, though the MFC-J2720 also comes with du­plex print­ing, so you won’t need to man­u­ally flip the pages over when print­ing dou­ble-sided doc­u­ments. A 50-sheet au­to­matic doc­u­ment feeder (ADF) lets you print, copy and scan with­out hav­ing to at­tend to the printer. Un­like the other two prin­ters in this shootout, the J2720 is able to han­dle A3 pa­per, so you can print pho­to­graphs and spread­sheets that in­clude more de­tail. Pa­per han­dling is also im­pres­sive, as it can han­dle 500 sheets of pa­per at a go with its dual pa­per trays. This puts it quite a bit ahead of the other two in terms of pa­per han­dling and also flex­i­bil­ity, as the two trays make it easy to switch be­tween print­ing dif­fer­ent pa­per sizes.

And don’t for­get the multi-pur­pose tray, which han­dles up to 80 A4 sheets or five A3 sheets of pa­per, bump­ing up the pa­per han­dling quan­tity even fur­ther. You can skip us­ing your com­puter to print as the MFC-J2720 lets you print JPEG files and com­pat­i­ble doc­u­ments di­rectly from USB flash drive, me­dia cards or a Pic­tBridge com­pat­i­ble cam­era. With built-in Wi-Fi, you can print di­rectly from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad with the free Brother iPrint & Scan app. With the app, you can also by­pass your com­puter and scan di­rectly to your iOS de­vices. The MFC-J2720 has a 3.7-inch touch­screen con­trol panel, and it’s easy to use as well. You can also view the cur­rent ink lev­els, and the op­tion to align the print heads is easy to find as well.
