Brother has released the Brother MFC-J2720 A3 inkjet printer, adding to their already impressive line-up of A3 business inkjet printers. This multi-function printer combines high volume A3 printing as well as A4 printing, scanning, copying and faxing in one compact machine.

With print speeds of up to 22 pages per minute (ppm) for black and 20 ppm for colour, Brother promises to save you time and help you beat deadlines as there is less of a wait for large or multiple print jobs.

The Brother MFC-J2720 has a whole variety of features including a 9.4 cm LED touchscreen to help you navigate through your printer functions menu, auto-duplexing and direct printing without a computer. You can also enjoy unattended scanning, faxing and copying with the MFC-J2720’s 50 sheet auto-document feeder (ADF).

The printer is also designed to save time when it comes to switching between paper sizes and types. There are two 250 sheet paper trays, for a combined paper capacity of 500 sheets, which allow you to switch between A3 and A4 without having to change the paper as well as an 80 sheet multi-purpose tray that makes switching between paper of varied size and thickness effortless.

The MFC-J2720 itself is fairly easy to set up and you can be up and printing in a few minutes, even after downloading and installing the drivers and inserting the ink cartridges. Getting to know the printer’s additional features, like wireless printing and printing from the app, can take a little longer, but with patience and a little help from the user guide, you should get the hang of them quickly.

Brother’s high yield InkBenefit ink cartridges give you page yields of 2400 pages for the Brother LC-679XL Black Ink Cartridge and 1200 pages for the Brother LC-675XL Cyan Ink Cartridge, the Brother LC-675XL Magenta Ink Cartridge and the Brother LC-675XL Yellow Ink Cartridge.

Individual ink means you only need to replace the colour you’ve run out of and the printer’s Ink Save Mode, which reduces ink wastage, will help you save on printing costs.

The printer supports Brother’s printing app as well as Apples iPrint&Scan app, which means that you can send print jobs from and send scans to your devices.

All in all, if you’re looking to bring your A3 printing requirements in house and want a fast and reliable workhorse printer, the Brother MFC-J2720 might just be the perfect fit for you.
