This convenience comes at a cost, and with the 420CN, that means putting up with lightweight plastic parts and a reduced paper-storage capacity. The top holds just 10 sheets, and the automated document feeder (ADF) and input paper tray both accommodate 100 pages. It’s unusual for a printer this compact to include an ADF, which allows you to create copies without opening the tray lid. A little free-sliding plastic component in the center of the input tray serves as a 25-sheet output tray. The ADF’s weak, thin plastic appears to be flimsy. The printer is a little inkjet all-in-one with features that would befit a much more expensive machine. Its built-in media-card readers allow it to print, scan, copy, fax, and send photos. If that isn’t enough, this printer is also network ready. You may be wondering why anyone would want to network an all-in-one with a paper capacity of only 110 sheets and a slow 14.4Kbps fax modem; we reply, why not put it on the network and see what it can do? After instance, even a two-person office might wish to use both computers to scan documents, edit images, and send faxes. The person nearest to the 420CN can refill the paper tray without getting out of their chair. We can’t say how long the printer will endure, but given the creaky look and feel of its plastic parts, we assume it won’t last long. Still, if you’re looking for a low-cost all-in-one to share with a coworker or two, we can’t think of a better place to start than with this model. This is a briefcase-sized all-in-one device that would fit on a shelf next to the family entertainment center or on a crowded desk in a busy small office. The printer, which is made of shiny pewter-colored and matte dark-gray plastic, weighs slightly more than 13 pounds and measures just 15.3 by 15.8 by 6.5 inches (WDH). That’s nearly half the height and 5 pounds less than the majority of machines in its class. This model was intended by Brother to be tiny and short enough that you can use it to fax, scan, copy, and print without getting up from your desk chair. Unlike the printer’s low paper capacity, Brother did not scrimp on the control panel. A 12-button alphanumeric keypad, a 32-character LCD screen, four mode buttons for Photo Capture, Copy, Fax, and Scan and a combination menu-search and speed-dial button round out the full-size panel. Surprisingly, Brother placed the keypad to the left of the LCD panel, which may be troublesome for right-handed consumers. The LCD is difficult to view in low light or against a high fluorescent glare without illumination. Moreover, unlike most all-in-one printers, the Brother 420CN’s USB 2.0 and network connection connections are located beneath the front cover rather than in the rear.
