Brother MFC-290C Print Quality, Performance
Print speed is slower than usual for an inkjet. It’s most visible in our standard quality text document print, where one page takes 26 seconds to appear. We have noticed this with other Brother inkjets. This very problematic in MFP which if not suitable for use in a home office. The normal 3ppm quality print speed is very slow, especially compared to the increasing number of compact mono MFP lasers, which are much faster and only slightly more expensive.
Brother MFC-290C Photo printing, the area where inkjet printers are usually superior, is also very slow and the results vary. Most of our photos are thick and bright, with excellent contrast and bright dark tone. However, pale color has a marked magenta color; bright skin color looks yellow. Even extracting our fingerprints is a mild irritation that requires us to grab the inside of the printer to pull it out of its tray. You can print photos directly from various formats of memory cards, but this is very uncomfortable without the screen. There is also a PictBridge USB port so that you can print photos directly from a digital camera. Unlike some other Brother printer drivers, there is no facility to print PDFs from USB drives, which will be more useful for office users.
The quality of standard document prints is also defective. Mono text documents can use, although black text looks a bit gray compared to prints from both laser and other inkjet printers. Printed quality prints appear at a decent 9.8ppm, but are only suitable for examination, as they are pale with jagged letters. The Printed document is poorly colored and suffers from a very slow print speed of only 1.4ppm. The bright colors look faded, but the pale color is accurate.
