The Brother MFC-8470DN is a multifunction laser printer that can scan, copy, and fax, as well as handle PC Faxing. It includes an ethernet port for easy sharing, and Brother MFC-8470DN printer toner supplies are reasonably priced, so its operating costs are very affordable.
As the only model in the MFC-8470 series, this device includes automatic duplexing and networking. The design of the MFC-8470DN is geared toward home or small office use, but it isn't as compact as might be expected. It is 18.7 inches tall, with a sizable footprint of 20.9x17.7 inches. The unit weighs a somewhat heavy 36.3 pounds, though this does include the Brother MFC-8470DN toner supply.
The top of the machine is made up of both a flatbed scanning surface and a large 50-sheet automatic document feeder. This is great for those who do a lot of loose-sheet scanning, as the machine will scan continuously without the need for manual feeding.
The input paper capacity includes a 250-sheet main tray, as well as a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray for alternative media like envelopes and transparencies. Users who find this too limiting can even add a second tray for an additional 250 sheets of paper capacity. The standard memory of 32MB is also upgradeable to 544 MB if needed.
High-capacity toners are available to help keep costs down, with the larger Brother MFC-8470DN toner cartridges offering up to 7,000 pages each. Users can save some money by using compatible Brother MFC-8470DN toner cartridges instead of their pricier OEM equivalents.
The MFC-8470DN isn't the fastest or most feature-rich model in its class, but it offers a solid range of features for the average home user, or even for a small office. Combined with its expandability and low operating costs, it is an excellent value.
