Brother Multifunction Color Laser Printer

Brother MFC-9130CW Review & Rating

By

The Brother MFC-9130CW is the junior of three LED-based multifunction printers (MFPs) that the company recently introduced, offering a sparser feature set than the Brother MFC-9330CDW or Brother MFC-9340CDW at a slightly lower price. If duplex (two-sided) printing, copying, scanning, or faxing—or printing directly from a USB key—isn't important to your small or home office, it can save you some money over the other two MFPs.

The MFC-9130CW can print, copy, scan, and fax. It lets you fax either from your computer (PC Fax), or as a standalone unit without needing a computer. a USB thumb drive. It includes a 35-page automatic document feeder (ADF) for unattended copying, scanning, or faxing of multi-page documents of up to legal size. Unlike the MFC-9340CDW, it doesn't support duplex scanning, copying, or faxing; although you can still scan two-sided documents, you'd have to feed it side by side, a page at a time.

The Brother MFC-9130CW is two-toned (off-white and gray) MFP is boxy except for a swept-back front panel, which includes a 3.7-inch color touch screen. The backlit numerical keypad to the right of the touch screen only appears when you press Fax or other functions that require data entry. The only physical button visible is the Start/Stop button.

The MFC-9130CW uses LEDs in place of lasers as a light source. LED printers are generally smaller than the equivalent laser printers, and this model is no exception: It's reasonably compact at 16.1 by 16.1 by 19 inches (HWD) and weighing 49.6 pounds.

Paper capacity is 250 sheets, plus a one-page manual feed slot. Unlike the Brother MFC-9330CDW and Brother MFC-9340CDW, it lacks an automatic duplexer for printing on both sides of a sheet of paper. The driver provides on-screen guidance for manual duplexing.

The MFC-9130CW connects to a PC via a USB cable, or to a network via Ethernet or WiFi. It supports Wi-Fi direct, which allows for direct printing between compatible devices without the need to go through a WiFi network. It's compatible with Apple AirPrint, Brother iPrint&Scan, Google Cloud Print, and Cortado WorkPlace for printing from mobile devices. I tested it over an Ethernet connection, with the drivers installed on a computer running Windows Vista.
