As far as we know, Brother has a complete monopoly on A3 inkjet all-in-one printers. Clearly, the corporation sees this as a useful niche market, as it has a variety of machinery capable of handling the greater size. According to Brother, the MFC-6890CDW is the first printer that can print on both sides of the page in a single job. This machine, like the other A3 all-in-ones in its lineup, has a remarkably small case, similar to a mono A4 photocopier from ten years ago. This machine, however, has a lot more incorporated into its chassis than the original mono copier, beginning with a 30-sheet (ADF) at the top, with the feed tray folding in half to create a tidy finish when not copying. The flatbed scanner is, of course, A3, but it is also neatly marked for lower original sizes. The full-width control panel on the MFC-6890CDW is well-organized, with 12 fax number preset buttons and a number pad to the left of Brother’s characteristic, wide-screen LCD display. To the right of this are lit mode buttons for fax, scan, copy, and photo upload, followed by color and mono copy buttons and a cancel current task button. A PictBridge connection, as well as two others for CompactFlash and SD, Memory Card and xD, are set into the front edge of the control panel. The PictBridge connector can also be used to connect USB drives and download scans as well as upload photographs. Each of the two paper trays accepts A3 or A4 paper, while the top one is more adaptable, accepting photo blanks as small as 15 x 10cm. When the trays are configured for smaller sizes, they can be telescoped in, reducing the machine’s footprint. A slide-out support built into the top paper tray’s cover accepts completed pages. The fax line and handset sockets are on the left side, which isn’t as easy as having them on the rear, and you have to reeve USB and Ethernet wires inside the machine, which is also messy. We assume that the development of encryption standards and automatic logons is making wireless setup more difficult rather than easier. Brother has a Wizard to assist you, but you still need to know your WEP from your WPA to get signed up — many routers that come with ISP accounts merely refer to a ‘wireless key.’ Brother might assist here by offering a quick start guide with information for the most popular routers. The fact that this A3 all-in-one can generate duplex prints and copies is highlighted by Brother. Yes, but with some conditions. To begin with, it can only print and copy duplex A4 documents, not A3. It can replicate a document printed on one side and generate one printed on both sides, but it cannot reproduce a duplexed document unless you utilize the flatbed and turn each source page over during copying. In other words, the scanner head on the MFC-6890CDW is single-sided.
