At its size and price, you might not expect the cn to have room for a set of digital-media card readers.

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s Fax transmission itself, however, will be on the slow side, as the cn has a modem speed of just Color photos on glossy photo paper, by contrast, showed a much livelier, bold palette of colors.

Just in case that’s not enough, the cn is also network ready. And if you’ve networked the cn, anyone on the network can copy, edit, and print photos from the card.

If the cn is neither networked nor connected to a computer, you can still enjoy printing photos; the control panel’s LCD and menu scrolling button let you select the size of the photo and the type of paper you wish to use. Whoever sits closest to the cn can refill the paper tray without even getting up from the chair.


The top of the Brother cn, which contains the ADF, the flatbed scanner lid, and the control panel, lifts up on its right side and locks open with a creaky plastic support arm.
