The Brother MFC-790CW Wireless All-In-One Printer is good
The Brother MFC-790CW Color Inkjet All-in-one printer has turned out to be a pretty handy jack of all trades for my home office since it can make calls, fax, copy, print and scan. It has proven to be a good workhouse for the various things I've needed Considering there is a fax machine, telephone, printer, copier and scanner in this device, it is amazingly simple to use and operate. There really aren't that many different things you have to worry about to use the various functions. Choosing functions is as simple as pushing the correct function button on the machine front. In the center of the printer front is an adjustable touch color screen that lets you access the set up menus and change various settings in the MFC-790CW. It also alerts you when there is an issue like low ink or a paper jam. I like the touch screen aspect of the screen, it makes it easy to quickly navigate around without having to deal with menu keys. For connections, you can either connect the MFC-790CW to your computer directly via a USB cord or you can connect it to your network through an Ethernet line or via a wireless connection I've had my MFC-790CW for about a year and besides having to replace ink cartridges from time to time I haven't had any problems with my device. Quality wise I've been happy too. The printer works well and the output is clean and crisp. The same goes for the copier. Faxes are easy to send and the few that I have received come through quickly and print out as well as you'd expect with a fax. I love the scanner, mostly because I can set up those programs to make scanning different kinds of things quick and easy since I don't have to adjust settings on every scan. My only caution would be is that I think this is a low-volume machine. If you're looking for a networked multi-purpose machine to support multiple people, I would say look at something else if you have more than 2 or 3 people to support. You'd just be changing ink cartridges way too often with all that printing. **My Take** I'm really glad that I got the MFC-790CW for my home office and I'd have no problem recommending it to others with a home office that needs a general purpose multi-function machine.
