Brother MFC-5490CN Driver for Windows, Mac, and Setup Guide

Brother MFC-5490CN is a four-ink multifunction printer with scanning, printing, copying, and fax capabilities, making it suitable for the home office. You also use this kind of printer machine to build your own bussiness.

This is the smallest of Brother's inkjet all-in-one printers on a greater size. It has the same basic design as the company's twin-tray, A3-capable printers and appears surprisingly squat, given its single tray. Because it's geared at the SOHO market, it anticipate a respectable turn of speed for home or small office chores.

The MFC-5490CN is a large printer with a modest profile when not in use. This is somewhat enhanced when the 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder is used (ADF). Printing paper is fed from a 150-sheet cassette that slides in at the front, however there is no separate picture feed, and you must remove the ordinary paper to load photo blanks.

Design and Connectivity

The control panel is full-width and has a lighted, 2-line by 16-character LCD display, as well as four illuminated mode buttons in front for fax, scan, copy, and photo capture. A cross of navigation controls and four more auxiliary buttons are to the right of these buttons, while a number pad for fax dialing is to the left.

To the left of the number pad, there are six single-click dials and various buttons for configuring fax and copy settings. At the far right end, there are mono and color start buttons, as well as one to cancel a current work.

This all-in-one comes standard with USB and Ethernet connectors, which are inconveniently located within the machine and must be fed through from the back. On the left side, a fax line and phone sockets are located close to the mains connection.

Performance

Brother MFC-5490CN printer can print black pages at 35ppm and color documents at 28ppm. In 19 seconds, the images and text content can be printed. However, in draft mode, the lettering looked more grey than black.

When the Normal and Best modes were used, the colors are vibrant, and the writing looks black rather than grey. Skintones looked accurate when printed, but backgrounds were excessively dark. Because the maximum paper weight supported by this printer is 220g/m2, several premium picture papers are too heavy to use with the printer.

Brother MFC-5490CN includes a lighted one-line display with 16 characters. As a result, previewing photographs on memory cards or USB sticks is not possible.
