The MFC-L9570CDW has strong features for medium-sized workgroups that can easily serve their multifunctional needs.


Standard paper-handling starts with a 250-sheet tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. Brother offers an optional tower tray that consists of four 520-sheet trays. Users can also optionally purchase an additional 250-sheet tray or the 500-sheet tray. The maximum input capacity is 2,380 sheets. Each tray holds up to 8.5″ x 14″ paper size.

The output capacity is 150 sheets. There is an 80-sheet automatic document feeder. The maximum monthly duty cycle is 80,000 pages, but Brother recommends a monthly volume of 6,000 pages.

The scanning function supports scan to email, to file, to image, to OCR, to FTP, to Microsoft SharePoint, and to the cloud. Cloud services include Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Microsoft OneDrive and OneNote, and Box.

The faxing function includes a 33.6kbps modem, up to 500 pages of fax memory and PC faxing.

The MFC-L9570CDW ships with the super-high-yield black and color toner cartridges with a 6,500-page capacity in each cartridge. Brother offers the ultra-high-yield toner cartridges that include a 9,000-page capacity in each black and color cartridge. As the cartridges is only available via Brother’s reseller network, we were unable to get prices to calculate the cost-per-page. However, businesses can expect low cost of ownership with the higher toner yields. Businesses can also save printing costs by using toner save mode and duplexing.

Security features include an integrated NFC card reader, active directory, secure function lock, secure print, enterprise security, SSL/TLS, and IPSec.

Finally, the MFC-L9570CDW has a one-year limited warranty.
