Brother Ushers in a New Line of Monochrome Laser Multi-Functional Centres for SOHO & Small Business

• Automatic Double-Sided Printing (Duplex) • High printing speed of up to 26 pages per minute (ppm) • Wireless Network Capability on selected models • Integrated printing, faxing, copying and scanning abilities on selected models

Sydney, Australia: 3rd May 2011 – Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd, a leader in home and business IT peripherals, introduces seven new models to its line of Monochrome Laser Multi-Functional Centres® (MFCs) for Small Offices / Home Offices (SOHOs) and Small Medium Businesses (SMBs). Compact in size they are designed to fit into any business environment, the series consists of MFC-7860DW, MFC-7460DN, MFC-7362N, MFC-7360N, DCP-7065DN, DCP-7060D, DCP-7055.

With Automatic Double-Sided Printing (Duplex), the MFC-7860DW, MFC-7460DN, DCP-7065DN and DCP-7060D reduce paper usage by up to 50% to keep the office environmentally friendly.

The MFC-7860DW, MFC-7460DN, MFC-7362N and MFC-7360N are integrated with monochrome printing, faxing, copying and scanning abilities. With these highly efficient utilities, users can expect this new range of Brother Monochrome Laser MFC’s to maximise the smallest available office space. Users who wish to opt out of fax abilities can consider DCP-7065DN, DCP-7060D and DCP-7055 of the same range.

“Brother understands the need to be constantly fast and efficient at work. With the launch of the new range of Monochrome Laser MFC printers, I am confident that Brother can deliver more value and meet diverse office needs, be it ease of use, speed, quality, cost management, or versatility. All these realise higher productivity and efficiency for greater business returns,” said Andy O’Donnell, General Manager Product and Marketing, Brother International Australia  

Keeping Expenditures Minimal with Automatic Double-Sided (Duplex) Printing
With Brother’s signature Automatic Duplex Printing in MFC-7860DW, MFC-7460DN, DCP-7065DN and DCP-7060D printing costs are kept to a minimum as paper outputs are halved automatically. Brother’s Monochrome Laser MFC printers also offer the N-in-One printing and copying function, allowing users to reduce multiple pages into just one A4 sheet.

Taking savings even further, users can either make use of Brother’s Toner Save Mode, or opt for the non-compulsory high-yield toner to push the cost per print to an all-time low (selected models only).

Providing Efficiency and Productivity
All seven monochrome Laser MFC printers are equipped with high printing speed of up to 26 pages per minute (ppm) – with the first print-out delivered in less than 8.5 seconds flat.

In addition, the large 250 sheet built-in paper tray along with the 35-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF available on selected models only) helps users save more time from frequent replenishing. Users can also enjoy defined and precise printing with the series’ high-resolution printing at 2400 x 600 dpi.

Brother recognises the need for businesses to manage and retrieve documents swiftly in this high-speed era. Pushing productivity to the next level, all monochrome Laser MFC printers in this series are bundled with the powerful NUANCE® Paperport™ (for Windows®) and NewSoft® Presto!PageManager® (for Mac®, supplied via web download).”With this cutting-edge program, users can convert any hard copy documents into soft copies to be stored and managed electronically.  

Conserving the Environment
All Brother monochrome laser MFCs are designed to not only reduce material costs; they are also specially designed to keep hefty electricity bills at bay. Each Brother monochrome laser MFC is Energy Star approved, with Deep Sleep Mode taking up less than 1.7 watts.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
