a printer (Brother MFC-9840CDW)
For those who read my blog regularly should know that I have a few printers. And we have been printing on sort of high volume (for home users). We had been using the colour laser printer (Epson AcuLaser C1100N) for our daily printing needs until reducing the workload of it to Brother MFC-8890DW which is a mono-laser (all-in-one) featuring built-in duplex printing and very handy wireless connectivity.
Well, colour printing is also important for us, and the Epson AcuLaser C1100N (colour later, no duplex) has some problems recently, and two weeks ago, it stopped printing for one (pretty new) toner cartridge not functioning. So we decided to get an upgrade.
So the hunting of a colour laser printer started. Initially we were looking at a business end high volume inkjet printer instead, then, we decided to go for colour laser printer instead. At that time, I followed Don's evaluation procedure, working out the ongoing running cost (as in per print). Of course, the built-in duplex printing is a must in our decision. Turning print outs over for the second side printing is a pain.
Since getting a colour laser printer with built-in duplex, I thought why not getting an all-in-one version? So if we need to photocopy colour page, it would be easier. Therefore we upgraded the models we were deciding.
Since we have decided to get an all-in-one version, why not getting one that supports wireless printing to make life easier and easier positioning for the future? (This is also following Don decision method: future proofing.)
So we decided to get the Brother MFC-9840CDW.
Well, please excuse the messing room, we haven't had much time on cleaning.
The Brother MFC-9840CDW is virtually the colour version of Brother MFC-8890DW we got earlier. The MFC-9840CDW takes a bit longer to warm up for first page printing, and it costs a bit more (per page) of course.
Unlike most other colour inkjets or colour toners, most printers won't function at all if you are out of one colour and say you are not printing colour. With Brother MFC-9840CDW, if one colour toner is out, you can still print the rest in monochrome.
To make Don's life easier, there's the updated tiny list of printers and other types of printers:
