<p>MFC-8860DN - HIGH PERFORMANCE FIVE-IN-ONE MULTI-FUNCTION CENTRE FOR BUSINESS WORKGROUPS</p>
<p>The MFC-8860DN is a fast, reliable MFC capable of handling the ongoing document needs of most busy office environments and comes with the entire base features found on the MFC-8460N:

<p>The MFC-8860DN also comes with Automatic Duplex (2 sided):
• Duplex Printing - Saves paper and money by allowing you to print on both sides of the page &amp; reduces the bulk and weight of large documents
• Duplex Copying - Allows you to scan a large multi-page, single-sided document and then print them on half the paper (odd pages on front, even pages on back) 4
• Duplex Fax Send/Receiving - Saves paper by printing incoming faxes on each side of the paper
• Duplex Scanning - Scan 2-sided or single sided originals into your PC/Mac®</p>
<p>The ability to output 2-sided documents means considerable cost savings for customers and it also offers an environmentally responsible option for paper use. This print option can be set as a default or simply used on demand.</p>
<p>The MFC has a convenient flatbed design that accommodates either single sheets or bound documents for copying, faxing, or scanning. Their convenient up to 50-sheet ADF also makes it easy to handle multi-page documents. All of the models are also compatible with both PC and Mac® operating systems (Windows® 98/NT4.0/2000/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS® 9.1-9.2, OS X 10.2.4 or greater). Standard emulations of PCL® 6 and BR-Script®3 (PostScript®3)™ are included with the MFC as well.</p>
<p>With the ability to function as a digital copier, the new MFC supports reduction and enlargement of documents from 25-400% in 1% increments, makes up to 99 copies and include sorting functionalities. Copies up to A4 size can be made from both the glass and the automatic document feeder (ADF).</p>
<p>As a full-function stand-alone fax machine, the MFC supports up to 340 speed dial locations, and also incorporates dual access and broadcast faxing features. It also stores up to 600 pages for Quick Scan faxing or out-of-paper fax reception. Stand-alone fax and copy operation is standard on Brother’s MFC line, so a computer is not required.</p>
<p>When operating as a scanner, these units are capable of colour scanning 600 x 2400 dpi interpolated resolution. For Windows®-and OS X 10.2.4 or greater based users, there is an easy-to-use “scan to” button for scanning directly to an FTP site, image application, OCR, E-mail application or file. The colour scanner function comes bundled with document management and OCR software. ScanSoft® PaperPort® SE with OCR software is available for Windows® and Presto!® Page Manager® (which also includes an OCR application) is available for Mac® users.</p>
<p>In some customer environments the PCL commands sent to the printer do not match the printer’s PCL language support and a special firmware needs to be developed to fix the problem. Brother has developed a program called ‘Search &amp; Replace’ where the machine will automatically replace the command so there is no need to develop any special firmware.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
