Praised for its dependability and affordable price tag, the Brother MFC-L8600 is a multifunction color laser printer that can handle scanning, copying, and faxing as well. Its maximum output speeds of up to 30 pages per minute are quite impressive, it includes duplex printing, and it has an expandable paper capacity for future growth. It is ideal for the small or medium office on a budget
Also referred to as the MFC-L8600CDW, its model name highlights its color printing, duplexing, and wireless networking capabilities. The latter allows it to be placed virtually anywhere in an office and still be shared by multiple users. For walk-up functions like copying and faxing, the 3.7-inch touchscreen display make it easy to navigate menus, and even supports scanning to or printing from cloud services like Evernote and Dropbox. The ability to send scans via email will also save users money on paper and Brother MFC-L8600 printer toner supplies.
In addition to standard wireless printing options, the machine also includes support for Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Brother iPrint&Scan apps. This makes mobile printing from smartphones and tablets very easy, and Brother's own app even allows users to save scanned documents to their mobile devices. The initial paper capacity of 300 sheets can also be expanded to 800 sheets maximum.
As with most color models, the maintenance costs of four separate toners can get a little high. Individual Brother MFC-L8600 toner cartridges are fairly affordable, however. The standard Brother MFC-L8600 toner cartridges can yield 1,500 to 2,500 pages, but high-capacity supplies can offer 3,500 to 4,000 pages.
With a 35-sheet automatic document feeder and an intuitive touchscreen display, the MFC-L8600 is just as good as a walk-up device as it is a wireless printer. The result is a well-rounded office machine, but users may find the cost of Brother MFC-L8600 toner a little higher than expected.
