Brother™ Redefines The Small Business Inkjet All-In-One By Packing Low-Cost Printing, Advanced Paper Handling, And Fast Print Speeds Into A Space-Saving Design.

Business Smart™ Plus Series All-in-Ones to be introduced starting at $199.99.(1)

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a global leader in business technology, today announced the MFC-J5620DW, the first model from its new line of color inkjet all-in-ones for small businesses, the Business Smart Plus Series.

The MFC-J5620DW has a number of ways to help a small business keep a close eye on its printing costs. Most notably, Super High-yield replacement ink cartridges2 can help lower cost per page by offering a yield of up to 2,400 pages black3 and 1,200 pages color3 – up to four times the output4 of High-yield ink cartridges! Automatic duplex printing can also help reduce an overall printing budget by lowering paper consumption and costs when compared to single-sided printing.

Brother knows that business printing isn't limited to letter-sized output. That's why the MFC-J5620DW offers advanced paper handling, including an adjustable paper tray that holds up to 250 sheets of paper sizes up to 11" x 17", as well as an all-new Multi-Purpose Tray that allows easy printing on specialty paper or envelopes without changing the paper in the main tray. The Multi-Purpose Tray can also hold up to 80 sheets of 8.5"x11" paper or up to 5 sheets of 11"x17" paper. And the up to 35-sheet automatic document feeder is ideal for unattended scanning, copying and faxing of multi-page documents.

To help small business professionals spend less time waiting for their important printouts and more time tending to business at hand, the MFC-J5620DW boasts fastest in class print speeds5 of up to up to 22ppm black and 20ppm color6 (ISO/IEC 24734).

The MFC-J5620DW packs all of this into a space-saving design, while offering small businesses a number of ways to connect to mobile devices7, cloud-based services8, and Ethernet and wireless networks.

"With our new Business Smart Plus Series, we're building on the success of the Business Smart Series, and further focusing on features important to our small business customers: controlling printing costs, multiple paper handling options, and fast print speeds," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing. "These models are a smart choice for businesses interested in keeping color printing budgets in line, but wanting a fully-featured device with enhanced connectivity to help boost productivity."

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
