Brother MFC-8420 Review
This all but obsolete model from brother was, in its day, one of the top multifunctional performers on the market. The Brother MFC-8420, though comparatively slow by today’s standards, offered affordable print, copy, scan, and fax options in a single, comprehensive piece of hardware. While it would not be wise to seek out an 8420 for purchase, third party retailers do, in fact, continue to carry consumables for this rapidly aging laser printer.
While not as effective as a built in LCD screen, the Brother MFC-8420’s five line LCD text based display is more than enough for navigating through menus and extensive print and fax options. The area where the multifunctional unit excels most at is probably fax functionality. With 32 MBs of built in memory, the unit can store up to 600 pages of fax page memory.
The Brother MFC-8420’s top print speed of only 17 pages per minute is roughly half that of laser printers found on the market today. While this performance specification may suffice for the home user, it is no longer sufficient in any type of busy work environment. As an older unit, the overall size of the MFC is also quite intimidating, as well as annoying. The device’s dimensions of 20.9 x 17.5 x 18.5 in. (W x D x H) limit its usefulness in a desktop or home environment.
