Brother Enhances Business Smart Series Inkjet All-in-Ones With Faster Print Speeds, Improved Touchscreen Interface, And New Lower Price Points

MFC-J4420DW to be introduced at a budget-friendly price of only $169.99.(1) (July 17, 2014)

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Brother International Corporation, a leader in business technology, today announced the expansion of its popular Business Smart Series with the introduction of the MFC-J4420DW, a color inkjet all-in-one designed for Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) users.

Brother is improving upon the technology of first generation Business Smart Series models by boosting print speeds to up to 20ppm black and 18ppm color2 - giving the MFC-J4420DW the fastest print speeds available in its class.3 Brother is also including an easy-to-use 2.7" Color TouchScreen Display in the MFC-J4420DW, and introducing it at a lower price point than previously-released comparable Business Smart Series all-in-ones.

In addition to these improvements, the MFC-J4420DW provides SOHO users with the Ultimate Combination of features most important to their business: low printing costs, mobile device connectivity, and up to 11" x 17" printing.


To help SOHO users keep their printing budgets in check, the MFC-J4420DW can be used with Super High-yield ink cartridges4 that print approximately 1,200 pages5 black and 1,200 pages5 color. This helps reduce cost per page, which can be critical in higher volume printing SOHO environments. Users can realize further reductions in cost per page by purchasing inks in money-saving multi-packs.4

With smartphones and tablets becoming increasingly more important in small and home offices, Brother makes it simple and convenient for users to print from and scan to a large number of compatible devices, including Apple iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and Windows Phone mobile devices. Connect to the MFC-J4420DW via AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, the free Brother iPrint&Scan app, Wi-Fi Direct, or Cortado Workplace.6

And for SOHO users who have a periodic need to print ledger-sized business documents like spreadsheets and marketing literature, the MFC-J4420DW provides 11" x 17" printing via its single-sheet manual bypass.

"With the expansion and improved pricing of our award-winning Business Smart Series, it's easier than ever for a customer to find the ideal color inkjet all-in-one for the home office or small office," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing for SOHO products. "By committing to low-cost printing, mobile device connectivity, and versatile paper handling, we're making owning an innovative, hard-working Brother Inkjet All-in-One accessible to SOHO customers who are keeping a careful eye on their budget."
