The Brother MFC-9120CN is a great multi-function printer for home or small office use. It prints at good speeds and is better suited for internal business documents and brochures than it is for high-resolution graphics.
• You can enjoy printing, scanning and faxing over the network.
• Whether you have Windows, Mac or Linux, this printer is compatible on all these operating systems.

The Brother MFC-9120CN Printer is a multi-function machine for small workgroups that includes a printer, scanner, copier and a fax all in one unit. It has an adjustable 250-sheet paper tray and a one page manual feed slot without any automatic duplex features. The 35-page automatic document feeder (ADF) lets you copy, fax or scan multi-page documents easily. Moreover, bound documents and magazines can be easily scanned with the hinged cover of the flatbed scanner that along with letter and A4 size documents.
This printer does its printing at reasonable speed of 17 pages per minute for both text documents and color printouts at resolutions up to 600 x 2400dpi. The text prints at good quality which you can easily use for internal business use. But if you are seeking high quality graphics, then this printer does not do a good job.
