Brother Launches New Lower-Cost INKvestment Tank MFC-J805DW

Brother’s INKvestment system, which it introduced last year.

While high-capacity ink cartridges and inkjet printers/All-in-Ones with high-yield refillable ink tank cartridges have proven increasingly popular among users, one drawback is that they tend to be priced significantly higher than competitors. Today, however Brother International USA says it’s addressing that challenge with the introduction of a high-yield, lower-cost All-in-One, the new INKvestment Tank MFC-J805DW All-in-One color-inkjet printer, which has an estimated retail price of  $159.99.

Brother also says the new model includes in the box up to one year’s worth of ink, based on average monthly print volumes of approximately 150 pages consisting of 60-percent black pages and 40 percent color pages in accordance with the ISO/IEC 24711 test standard using the four ink cartridges provided in-box. Brother also says that users can print for less than $0.01 per page in black and less than $0.05 per page in color with INKvestment Tank Ultra High-Yield replacement cartridges

Phil Lubell, vice president, SOHO/Consumer Product and Brand Marketing at Brother, commented: “Our research shows that people hate replacing ink so much that they are actually throwing their printers out rather than dealing with the hassle. With that in mind, we’re adding a low-cost printer to our INKvestment Tank lineup with the same great features our customers expect, including up to a full year’s worth of ink right in the box.”

The INKvestment Tank MFC-J805DW incorporates Brother’s INKvestment ink-tank that use high-yield Brother ink cartridges and an internal ink storage tank to deliver more pages of uninterrupted printing (for more on this system, see New Brother Inkjets with Hybrid Cartridge/Ink-Tank System Provide Printing For Up To Two Years).

  • An Intelligent Page Gauge that indicates approximately how many pages that can be printed.
  • Built-in wireless connectivity, or connect locally to a computer via USB.
  • Print and scan wirelessly from desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
