An attractive design and compact footprint make it ideal for home and home office environments where space is at a premium. However, its compact size doesn’t mean sacrificing performance or features. It offers a variety of features designed to help enhance the way you work. These include a convenient automatic document feeder, built-in media card slots, a USB Direct / PictBridge interface for direct photo printing and 4 separate ink cartridge system.
The MFC-290C also comes with a range of other useful features, including: up to 30ppm black/25ppm color print speeds, a versatile flatbed design, up to 100 sheet paper capacity and up to 6000x1200▼dpi print resolution. Plus, the MFC-290C offers excellent fax and scanning capabilities.

Versatile flatbed design
The flatbed design allows you to scan and copy bound documents, non-standard paper sizes or anything too thick for the automatic document feeder.
Up to 100 sheet paper capacity
The larger the paper capacity, the less frequently you need to refill the paper tray.
High quality printing at up to 6000x1200 dpi▼
The MFC-290C delivers exceptional output at up to 6000 x 1200 dpi▼ resolution. Print professional, borderless photos with droplet size as small as 1.5 picoliter, using True2Life® technology.

Faxing, copying and direct printing from media cards, PictBridge-enabled cameras or a USB flash drive don’t even require that your PC be connected.
