The Brother MFC-1260 is a personal monochrome laser printer designed for the individual or small office environment. It has a large paper capacity and relatively fast speeds for its affordable price, and would be well-suited to users who frequently print long multi-page documents on a regular basis, as printer toner costs are very low.
The design of the machine is very basic, making it easy to use and maintain. It measures around 14 inches by 14.5 inches, so it does take up a fair amount of desk space. The MFC-1260 includes only a parallel port for connecting to a computer, so modern computers may require a parallel to USB adapter. The input paper tray holds up to 650 sheets, and a manual slot is included for alternate media types.
The original Brother MFC-1260 toner cartridges have a page yield of 3,000 pages. High-yield Brother MFC-1260 toner cartridges are available, however, with a 6,000 page yield that keeps the cost of replacing toners more economical. Users can save even more by using compatible Brother MFC-1260 toner, which is often a fraction of the price of OEM versions.
The Brother MFC-1260 compares favorably with other models in its class, with above average print quality provided by its 1200 dpi printing engine and its affordable upfront price. Its 12 pages per minute printing speed does lag behind the competition, but those who want value more than speed may find that the affordable Brother MFC-1260 toner costs make up for the lack in printing speed.
Overall, the MFC-1260 is a solid monochrome laser printer that will be right at home in any small space. It will function best as a personal printer for an individual office user or even a student, and its large paper capacity makes it an excellent choice for printing large documents.
