Designed for workgroups with high print volumes, the Business Color Laser All-in-One Wireless Printer from Brother accommodates the need for low-cost printing, advanced scanning, copying, faxing, and secure document handling. Triple layer security includes an integrated NFC card reader for easy network user authentication.

The printer features a 2400 x 600 dpi print resolution and 33 ppm black/color print speed. The recommended monthly print volume is 4000 pages.

Additionally, the printer can be expanded with optional 250-sheet and 500-sheet trays, which can be added to the bottom of the printer for a higher paper capacity.

Flexible connections include built-in Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, and USB interfaces. A USB-A host port is also provided on the front for printing and scanning from flash drives or scanning to flash drives. A large 7" touchscreen display allows easy menu navigation and lets you create customized shortcuts.

Do the other differences also include a larger touchscreen for the 8905 model as well as 512MB Standard RAM instead of upgradable 256MB for the 8900 model?
