The Brother MFC-5490CN is an all-in-one & compact digital copier, scanner, fax machine, and inkjet printer designed for printing, faxing, copying, or scanning school projects, photos, recipes, web pages, and much more. An upgrade from the Brother MFC-490CW, the Brother MFC-5490CN adds along a 50-sheet auto document feeder, an extra-large 150-sheet input tray, and a 2 year express exchange warranty. Like its predecessor, the MFC-5490CN printer/copier boasts ultra-fast 33ppm black & 27ppm color printing speeds, not to mention 20cpm black & 18cpm copying speeds. Most notable about the MFC-5490CN is its compatibility for PictBridge-enabled cameras, USB flash memory drives, and multimedia cards such as Secure Digital, Compact Flesh, and Memory Stick. The MFC-5490CN makes it easy to not only print from a Wi-Fi or Ethernet network, but even directly from your camera. The Brother MFC-5490CN retails for $129.99.
