Brother MFC-9970CDW A4 Wireless enterprise Colour Laser printer down to £416

The Brother MFC-9970CDW A4 Colour laser printer is available from Amazon (via Printerland, look on the right hand side of the page) for only £416 after a £200 cashback straight from Brother until the end of the month.

That's nearly half its suggested retail price. Alternatively, you may opt for a three-year onsite warranty or a free tray. This is a massive device, which weighs a whopping 26Kg, and integrates a scanner, a fax machine with 50 sheet document feeder and an optional 500 sheet paper tray.

Other features include a 28ppm mono and colour printing/copying speed, a 5in LCD touchscreen display, double sided (auto duplex) printing, scanning, faxing and copying plus ISIS compatibility making it ideal for simple document management.

Connectivity ports include a USB host port, a USB port, Wi-Fi and an Ethernet port. The MFC-9970CDW is powered by a 400MHz processor, comes with 256MB of RAM and consumes up to 615W. The price of compatible laser toner cartridges start from as little as £80 for a pack of four with genuine ones costing three times that price.

As for the printer itself, PC Mag says, "if graphics and photo output quality is important for your office, this is the wrong printer to get. But if you don't much care about photos, and don't need impressive looking graphics, the combination of speed, capability, and ease of use from the front panel is enough to make the MFC-9970CDW stand out. And that may well be enough to make it your printer of choice."
