Brother MFC-1810 Printer Review
The Brother MFC-1810 is a multifunction laser printer with scanning, copying, and faxing features. It can also share documents via email, and has a maximum print speed of 21 pages per minute. It lacks the network sharing features of more expensive models, but for personal users, it is a very affordable choice. Buyers also won't have to spend a lot on Brother MFC-1810 printer toner to keep it running.
The feature set of the MFC-1810 is decidedly simple. With only a USB port for a direct connection, it lacks wireless or ethernet sharing. Faxing is limited to fairly slow transmission speeds of 14.4 Kbps; automatic duplexing is not included, though manual duplexing is supported. The control panel is also simple and straightforward, but quite functional and easy for novice users to grasp.
Where the MFC-1810 excels, however, is in providing a broad range of basic features at a great price. Print speed is impressive, and the enhanced resolution of 2400x600 dpi can output great print quality as well. The automatic document feeder only holds 10 pages, but for the majority of home users, this might be all they will need, and it is still preferable to scanning individual pages.
The cost of toners tends to be the deal breaker for many home models, but Brother MFC-1810 toner cartridges are affordable enough to make the grade. In fact, with a yield of 1,000 pages for each Brother MFC-1810 toner cartridge, the cost per page is quite good. Users can even find compatible Brother MFC-1810 toner from third-party sellers if they wish to save money.
The MFC-1810 is a solid choice for buyers who want the basics without spending a lot of money. If features like networking, duplexing, or even mobile printing are important, however, buyers should keep looking.
