Brother today announced a new line of 5-in-1 flatbed laser Multi-Function Center (MFC) products. The new models MFC-8420, MFC-8820D and MFC-8820DN, offer plain-paper faxing, laser printing, digital copying, color scanning and PC faxing. Designed with a flatbed scanning area that accommodates single-sheets or bound documents up to legal size, the new series from Brother comes with faster print speeds (up to 17ppm), increased memory and a new 5-line back-lit LCD display. In addition to the all of the base features, the MFC-8820D and MFC-8820DN add duplex (two-sided) printing and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. The top-of-the-line MFC-8820DN further adds built-in networking capability. The new models, which are expected to start shipping in mid-May, carry estimated street prices of US$549.99, $640.99, and $$799, respectively.
