Are you looking for a good ink-jet printer that really does it all? I was, and I’d encourage you to check out the Brother MFC 6940cw. It’s great.

It’s multi-function: prints, faxes, scans, and it copies. It’s also painless to set up: You can use USB, Ethernet or your Wi-fi network to connect to it. It also accepts multiple memory card types: CF, MS, MS Pro, SD, SDHC, xD, xD type M/H, and USB Flash drives, or you can connect your camera directly to it.

Lastly, it’ll print large format prints (up to 11×17) in borderless formats, making for fantastic presentations.

And the consumables are pretty reasonable. The standard ink cartridges will print up to 450 pages… while the high-yield cartridges will last up to 750 pages, and they aren’t super expensive. Branded cartridges run about $30 for high-yield, while you can pick up some good quality knock-off ink for less than $5/cartridge.

Get the Brother MFC-6490cw at Amazon for $279 for the printer.
