In recent years, no other brand has consistently produced award-winning printing solutions like Brother. By applying its philosophy of uncompromising reliability to solutions that deliver cutting-edge productivity and cost-saving technology for the modern business, Brother has won PCMag Readers' Choice Award for an unprecedented 10 years in a row, as well as PCMag Business Choice Awards for six years running.

And now, this same "customer first" approach can be found in its new series of colour LED printers and multifunction centres (MFCs) for home offices and small and medium businesses.

"You shouldn't have to choose between print quality, performance, or cost-efficiency, but unfortunately, many businesses find themselves sacrificing one or the other when choosing a new print solution. With Brother's new series of colour LED machines, we've set out to change all that," says Dale de Villiers, marketing manager at Brother South Africa. "Our latest range of colour printers and multifunction centres deliver outstanding productivity, seamless connectivity, and cost-saving technology in a compact and user-friendly package. Best of all, they are capable of producing brilliant colour documents to help your business create impressive sales and marketing material."

This new series features one colour LED printer, the HL-L3210CW; and two MFCs, the DCP-L3551CDW and MFC-L3750CDW. The new line-up replaces outgoing models: HL-3150CDN, HL-3170CDW, MFC-9140CDN and MFC-9330CDW.

The MFC-L3750CDW has been awarded the 2019 Winter Pick Award by Buyers Lab (BLI) in the category: 'Outstanding Colour MFP for Small and Home Offices'. BLI is the world's leading independent provider of testing services and analytical information to the document imaging industry. Awarded twice annually for office equipment, Pick Awards acknowledges the products that gave the best performances in BLI's extensive suite of lab tests in the previous six months.
