Multifunction Features

This multifunction Brother DCP-J562DW It is a device that is specially designed for use at home or in small offices, so although it has quite decent characteristics, they will not be enough if what we are looking for is a device for a large business or offices with a large monthly workload. In addition, the function of fax included in similar models has been discarded for this team, which will undoubtedly lower its cost. This printer uses inkjet technology.

Let’s talk about speeds first, and this printer Brother multifunction offers us a printing speed of 12 pages per minute in black and white and up to 6 pages per minute in the case of full color printing. The maximum monthly printing cycle is up to 2,500 pages, although the company recommends a monthly use of between 500 and 1000 pages for optimal performance and to extend its useful life.

Now we have to tell you about the resolutions supported by this multifunction, and it is that it will allow us a printing resolution of up to 6000 by 1200 dpi, with good quality of colors in case of using photographic paper, it being true that sometimes the colors are perceived somewhat weak when using normal paper. It also offers us a function that is always appreciated, and that is automatic double-sided printing, a function that is already becoming common in all printers that appear on the market. The scan resolution is up to 1,200 x 2,400 dpi if we use the optical option and up to 19,200 x 19,200 dpi if we use the interpolation provided to us by the software that comes with the device.
