Brother International Corporation Expands its INKvestment Color Device Line

Brother International Corporation builds upon the success of its INKvestment line of color inkjet all-in-ones with two additions to the INKvestment line - the MFC-J5930DW and the MFC-J6935DW. The Brother INKvestment line addresses one of the biggest challenges facing small office and home office (SOHO) users: the high cost of ink. A single INKvestment Super High-yield black cartridge delivers approximately 3,000 pages, for less than $302 and a single INKvestment Super High-yield color cartridge delivers 1,500 pages for less than $202. This translates to printing for less than a penny per page in black and less than a nickel per page in color. The new INKvestment devices provide the capabilities and practical functionality that small businesses need. These reliable and durable devices are backed with unprecedented toll-free technical telephone support for the life of the product. The MFC-J5930DW and the MFC-J6935DW include an additional paper tray for extra paper handling flexibility, the convenience and cost savings of automatic duplex printing and single-pass duplex copying/scanning. Both devices can also print up to ledger size (11" x 17") documents. The MFC-J6935DW offers the ability to copy and scan ledger size documents directly on the glass. Brother has equipped the new INKvestment all-in-one devices with the following additional business features: Amazon Dash Replenishment, Brother printers are smart printers, equipped with low ink intelligence that automatically triggers an ink shipment from Amazon account to home or office and users can register with Amazon Dash to automatically receive Brother Genuine ink cartridges avoiding last minute ink emergencies. Integration with Popular Cloud Services. Google Drive™, Dropbox and Evernote® are easily accessible. Users can scan documents to Brother Cloud Apps such as Office, Outline&Copy, Outline&Scan, Outline&Remove, NoteScan and CreativeCenter. Mobile Capability for Work On-the-Go: Wireless connectivity with Wi-Fi Direct® allows users to print from smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Mobile devices can sync with AirPrint®, Google Cloud Print™, Mopria™, Wi-Fi Direct®, and Brother iPrint&Scan. Easy-to-Navigate Touchscreen Display- 3.7" Touchscreen provides uncomplicated access to the device features. Dedicated Support to Ease Worries- Brother provides a two-year limited warranty in addition to free technical support for the life of the products via online, call or live chat. Brother's new INKvestment color all-in-ones are available through online retailers and distributors. The MFC-J5930DW is priced at $299.992. The MFC-J6935DW is $349.992. Two previously-announced INKvestment devices, the MFC-J5830DW XL and the MFC-J6535DW XL, are both now available as well. The MFC-J5830DW XL includes 16 INKvestment cartridges in the box, and the MFC-J6535DW XL includes 20 INKvestment cartridges eliminating the need to purchase ink for up to two years.
