Brother MFC-9330CDW Image quality
In office automation, the quality is at the rendezvous. We appreciate the precision of the letters in the graph below. The gradient of green in the solid color is well respected and the deep black brings out the legend very clearly on a yellow background. A slight moiré effect nevertheless slightly interferes with the whole.
