New Lineup Of Compact Color All-In-Ones & Printers from Brother


New single-pass engine equipped models target small offices and workgroups

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (Sept. 3, 2009) – Today, Brother International Corporation, a leader in small and home based office machines bolsters its product line-up with a new family of compact color products including two new color printers (HL-3000 Series from $299 to $349*) and three new color all-in-ones (MFC-9000 Series from $399 to $499*). The new models deliver powerful features including fast color and monochrome print speeds in a compact design, making them ideal choices for small businesses and home-based office professionals.

“We understand that small business and home-based office professionals have a range of needs, and that when it comes to color printers and all-in-ones, one size does not necessarily fit all,” said Brother’s Director of Marketing for Laser Products, Jeff Sandler. “By expanding our color product line-ups to include more compact and affordable models, busy small office users can now quickly produce high-quality color office documents such as presentations, reports, brochures and spreadsheets with ease.”

The new machines also set a new performance benchmark by delivering professional quality color or monochrome printing at up to 17 pages per minute which is the fastest single pass color print speed within each of their respective market segments. Now sporting an extensive array of color line-ups (25 products including inkjets), Brother can address virtually every possible user need. In addition, Brother’s newest family of printers and all-in-ones use LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, enabling its new family of compact color machines to feature a significantly smaller footprint than its existing color laser products.
“Brother is committed to offering consumers a great value,” said Sandler. “With these new models, we are able to offer professionals high-performing, fast machines with rich color output at very attractive price.
