Brother MFC 7860DW Review
The Brother MFC 7860DW is everything one needs from an all-around monochrome laser device. The MFC can be employed in small businesses or in a home office. This device can print, copy, scan, fax, and PC fax. It is an all-in-one device that is ideal for producing the output that is common in today's business environment. It stands 12.4" tall, 15.7" deep, and 15.9" wide. It weighs a modest 25.6 pounds; it is quite easy to move around. A one-year limited warranty is included with the purchase of this machine.
The Brother MFC 7860 device offers exceptional performance in its output rate at 27 pages per minute. It prints at a rate of 27 pages per minute for print and copy, which allows employees and users to reduce wasted time and focus on more pertinent tasks. It facilitates automatic duplex printing that lets users print two-sided booklets and documents with simplicity. It has a unique feature of letting users use one-sided originals to produce two-sided output for copying and faxing tasks. This printer can go as far as 10,000 prints per month, but the recommended monthly volume rests at an ample 250-2,000 pages per month.
This model is the most flexible, in terms of network capability, out of the three models in the 7860 series. It can be shared via wired or wireless network for common tasks such as PC faxing, scanning, and printing. If there is only one PC, it can be connected locally via the USB port.
The all-in-one MFC offers a generous document management system. It allows users to scan documents and archive, share, or edit paper-bases jobs electronically. This sophisticated feature lets users manage both, small and large business requirements. Users can scan a single-sheet from the flatbed scanner, or they can use the 35-sheet capacity automatic document feeder for multiple page documents.
The all-in-one device has a generous paper-handling system. It comes with an adjustable 250-paper capacity tray to handle legal and letter size documents. The straight-through paper path can be employed via the manual feed slot, which ensures that envelopes and letterheads look nice. The output comes out face-down, which reduces the time it takes to organize linear paperwork, and it can hold up to 100-sheets.
The green features of this device is particularly abundant and offers qualities such as conserving energy, saving paper, and streamlining work for efficiency. It is ENERGY STAR qualified which is a testament to its capacity to use minimal energy; it uses less than 1.7 Watts in deep sleep mode. The duplex printing capabilities helps reduce paper waste, while at the same time printing with efficiency. The Toner Save Mode will reduce the amount of toner the printer uses, which is ideal for use on less critical documents. Aside from its duplex component, it can print N-in-1, which will copy or print multiple pages on one sheet.
The MFC facilitates powerful business features that enhances, streamlines, and fortifies work productivity. Its scan-to features consist of scan-to-E-mail, scan-to-file, scan-to-image, and scan-to-OCR. With the BRAdmin Professional, users can track the activity and status of any device that is on the network; it is also employed to configure network device functions.
This particular model facilitates a broad spectrum of advanced features that enhances productivity. Users can protect their print jobs with a 4-digit pin. Documents can be scanned directly to an FTP server. Scan profiles can be preset; things like size, file format, resolution, destination, and speed dial. Faxes can be sent or received via the Internet. Scanned documents can be sent to an e-mail server without the use of a personal computer. Faxes can be sent to a separate fax server for retransmission. Managers can grant or restrict access to copying, scanning, faxing, page counter, page limit, and printing.
For such a multifaceted device, it is surprising that this MFC does not print in color. It does not make much sense to make all functions, except for print and copy, to use color. It operates on a standard memory of 32 Mega Bytes, which cannot be upgraded. The paper handling options are limited to what is standard. There is not much disadvantages to using the Brother MFC 7860DW other than what is stated above.
