THE BOTTOM LINE
Brother’s MFC-L9570CDW color laser all-in-one cranks out great-looking monochrome text and color business documents, rendering it a good value for medium-sized offices.
At the top of Brother’s MFC-L series of all-in-one (print, scan, copy, and fax) printers, the MFC-L9570CDW ($1,899.99) is a medium- to high-volume color laser designed for enterprises, fleets, and busy midsize offices and workgroups. Like our Summer 2019 Editors’ Choice the Lexmark MC2535adwe, this Brother’s paper capacity is expandable, and its maximum and suggested monthly print and copy volume ratings are relatively high. Both machines print well at respectable speed and are loaded with convenience and productivity features. The differences between these two AIOs are significant, though. The MFC-L9570CDW’s potential paper-input capacity, for instance, is nearly twice that of the Lexmark. Its automatic document feeder (ADF) holds close to double the number of pages, and its security features are better suited for enterprise and fleet deployment. This Brother model also has a list price more than triple the MC2535adwe’s, but as I wrote this, I found it all over the web for well under half its MSRP, making it a terrific value for most environments that print and copy thousands of pages each month.
