The Brother MFC-8870DW is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It offers fast speeds, rivaled by only a few units, a wide range of features, and built-in wireless capability. Long gone are the days when offices had separate printers for each computer. Over the last few years, wireless networking has begun to replace ethernet networking, as it is less expensive and much easier to implement. The MFC-8870DW has wireless networking built in, making it easy to integrate into a network.
The Brother MFC-8870DW is designed to seamlessly integrate into a wireless network in one of a few possible ways. The printer can connect to an existing network and share itself to any users connected to the network, or it can even function as a server, creating its own wireless network for computers to connect to. Either one of these scenarios is very easy to set up, though it is a little more complicated than setting up with ethernet, but once you identify your needs, the manual walks you through the process quite easily.
The MFC-8870DW can print, scan, copy, and fax. Copying and faxing can be done standalone, without the need for a computer, and network scanning is available, allowing users to send scans directly from the printer to a computer on the network. The printer also supports duplexing (two-sided printing) which allows for more flexibility in printing options and can also save quite a lot of paper over the lifetime of the printer.
Print speed is a very fast 30 pages per minute. Copies print out at the same speed, though there may be some scanning time. Print quality is excellent, as the printer includes a 1200 dpi printing engine for extra sharp images, though color printing is not available.
The Brother MFC-8870DW toner cartridges have a standard capacity of 3,500 pages. The high yield Brother MFC-8870DW toner cartridges have a capacity of 7,000 pages. By using the high yield toner cartridges that are available for the printer, the user can reduce the cost per page that they print.
Overall, the Brother MFC-8870DW is an impressive printer with very well-designed wireless capabilities built right in. Speed and quality are also excellent for any printing needs.
