Brother releases two new color series

by Reads (3,429)

Brother launched two new color series featuring LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology: the HL-3000 series and the MFC-9000 series.

The idea behind the new LED series is to bring laser quality and speed to home offices and small businesses in a compact design with an affordable price tag.

Consumers worried about the difference between LED and laser needn’t be; the machines are very similar devices using different light sources but putting off the same quality of text and picture.

The HL-3000 series consists of two models: the HL-3040CD and the HL-3070CW.  Both models feature print speeds up to 17 ppm, print resolution up to 600 x 2400 dpi, an adjustable 250 page paper capacity and Ethernet connectivity.

The HL-3070CW also offers Wi-Fi, USB direct interface and PCL6 and BR-Script3 emulations.

The HL-3040CD and the HL-3070CW will be available in September for $299 and $349, respectively.

The MFC-9000 All-in-One (AIO) series features three models: the MFC-9010CN, MFC-9120CN, and the MFC-9320CW.  All three AIO’s offer at least 3-in-1 functionality, print speeds up to 17 ppm, print resolution up to 600 x 2400 dpi, adjustable 250 page paper capacity, and Ethernet connectivity.
