"Wireless" MFC-845cw

Brother today announced a new low-profile color inkjet Multi-Function Center line: the MFC-845cw offers a combination of built-in Ethernet, wireless 802.11b/g connectivity and 5.8GHz digital cordless handset technology. The MFC-845cw shares the same base features as the recently announced MFC-240c, MFC-440cn and MFC-665cw, which include color printing, color copying, color scanning, color faxing, PC Fax send (Windows only) and PhotoCapture Center technology (media card slots and Pict-Bridge interface). The device offers offers up to 27ppm black and up to 22ppm color printing; up to 6000 x 1200 dpi print resolution with droplet sizes as small as 1.5 picoliters; a 5.8GHz cordless telephone handset (expandable up to total of 4 handsets), and a 2.5-inch flip-up color LCD display; a photo bypass tray that holds up to 20 sheets of 4" x 6" glossy paper; up to a 10-page auto document feeder; and a built-in digital answering machine (stores up to 29 minutes) and full duplex speakerphone. The MFC-845cw will be available in late October for $250.

Other highlights:


  • The MFC-845cw utilizes a four-cartridge ink system that only requires the user to replace the color that runs out.
  • The new LC-51 series (Innobella) inks have yields of up to 500 pages for black and 400 pages for each color cartridge (based on 5% page coverage).
  • The 5.8Ghz frequency spectrum in which it operates prevents interference with the wireless capabilities of the MFC-845cw or any other 802.11b/g devices within its range.
  • Its back-lit LCD screen makes it easy to see when placing calls and viewing incoming calls.
  • The MFC-845cw also has expandability by providing the ability to add up to 3 more Brother 5.8GHz cordless handsets (for total of 4). It also supports three-way calling--between handsets, the base and handsets, or three-way conference calling to outside calls. The additional handset options (Model: BCL-D10) are available separately for $90.
