Brother unveils 'fastest' laser printer
Brother claims that its latest office-grade printer is the fastest in the west... er... in its class. The DCP-9045CDN is a beast of a machine and has several key features built into its frame to make the chore of refilling the printer tray slightly more fun.
The DCP-9045CDN: much more than mono-tone prints
The printer accommodates almost an entire tree worth of paper, or 500 sheets, into the optional heavy-duty tray and you may need it because this baby churns out up to 20 pages per minute in either colour or mono. As with many printers, the toner cartridges are located at the front for ease of access and Brother said users will get up to 2500 pages from a single black cartridge and 1500 sheets from a cyan, magenta and yellow.
A USB port is built in, allowing users to print files, such as PDFs or JPEGs, directly from a USB stick without the need for a PC or laptop. Its PictBridge compatibility, an industry standard for direct printing, also allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras via the USB.
Brother claims you needn’t worry about anyone looking at your private prints, unless you leave them on the out tray that is, as the DCP-9045CDN has Secure Socket Layer technology built in, which is a cryptographic protocol to ensure secure communications during data transfers.
Lift up its lid, and the printer also has a scanner flatbed that provides up to 1200 x 2400dpi optical resolution or 19,2000 x 19,200dpi interpolated resolution..
The DCP-9045CDN will be available in the UK from next month for £535 (€580/$1,070).
