The Brother MFC-8480DN laser printer is a multifunction device designed for the home or small office user. It offers virtually every function a small office would need, all at a very affordable price. For faster print speeds and capability for higher volumes the Brother MFC-9420 toner printer should be considered.
The Brother MFC-8480DN laser printer (also known as the MFC-8480) can print, scan, copy, and fax, like the multifunction HP M2727 toner printer. It also duplexing (double-sided printing) built in, and ethernet network support for sharing it across a network of computers. It supports network scanning, allowing users to send scans directly to a computer on the network, and it supports network faxing, allowing users to send a fax directly from a PC document. A 50-page automatic document feeder makes scanning, faxing, and copying multi-page documents fast and easy. Total paper capacity is 300 pages, divided among a 250-sheet main drawer and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray.
Scanning is easy, and full-featured, but the unit lacks duplex scanning to go along with its duplex-printing, meaning that scanning or copying two-sided documents is a manual process. It also lacks wireless networking support, but many users would not need or want this feature, and both features add extra costs that small office users would probably prefer not to pay.
Brother MFC-8480DN toner cartridges have a capacity of 3,000 pages in the standard cartridge. High-yield laser toner cartridges are available, with a capacity of 8,000 pages each. The unit is very economical with toner usage, and enabling its toner save mode will lower toner costs even more, allowing users to get more pages from each cartridge.
Print speed is very fast, at up to 32 pages per minute. Print quality is excellent. Text quality is very sharp and detailed, and graphics quality is above average for a laser printer.
Overall, the speed and numerous functions of the Brother MFC-8480DN will impress users, and its affordable price and economical toner costs will save money over the lifetime of the unit.
