Small and medium office users can handle all of their business needs with the Brother MFC-9850, a multifunction laser printer, copier, and fax machine. Print speeds are average, at around 12 pages per minute, but a large document feeder and flatbed scanner make it a powerful device in a relatively small package. Printer toner costs are very low, making it affordable to maintain as well.
While it's not the most compact machine in its class, the design manages to minimize bulk, especially considering its large feature set. It measures 16.9 inches by 19.4 inches by 18 inches and weighs 37.5 pounds. The standard paper tray can hold up to 250 sheets, but can be upgraded to a total of 500 sheets, and there is a bypass tray for up to 50 sheets. The automatic document feeder can hold up to 50 sheets for faxing and scanning. The unit can be connected to a computer via USB or parallel port.
Combining a printer, copier, and fax machine into a single unit is not only convenient, it keeps costs down, as users replace toners for only one device instead of multiple devices. Brother MFC-9850 toner cartridges are affordable, and have a page yield of 3,000 pages each. Installing high-yield Brother MFC-9850 toner cartridges will lower costs even more, and compatible Brother MFC-9850 toner is available for a fraction of the cost of OEM branded versions.
Although the MFC-9850 offers many of the same features of earlier models such as the MFC-1260, the addition of a flatbed scanner and more versatile copy and fax options make it worth the upgrade. In addition, the inclusion of a USB port makes it easier to connect to modern computers that may not have a parallel port available.
Overall, the Brother MFC-9850 is a powerful multifunction device geared toward small and medium office environments who don't mind sacrificing a little speed for other functionality. The affordable price and high-yield Brother MFC-9850 toner options make it one of the best values in its class.
