Brother makes it easy to network the MFC-7860DW with collaborators, and its modest price tag makes sense for budget-minded shoppers.
Suitably small for personal use or for a micro office. Ethernet and WiFi. Duplexer. Single-sheet manual feed.
Very fast, Builtin duplexer, Wired / Wireless networking built in and easy to set up
Outstanding text quality; automatic duplexing
Larger offices will feel cramped by the printer's small paper input tray and 10,000-sheet recommended output per month.
No paper handling upgrade options.
LCD is difficult to read, Printing from smartphone apps doesn't include Blackberry
Subpar copying, scanning; a bit pricey; low monthly duty cycle
