Designed for small office and workgroup use, the Brother MFC-8460 is a well-rounded machine that offers high-quality prints, faxes, scans, and copies. Its walk-up features allow users to use the copy and fax features with the press of a button, while easy networking means that the entire office can print from a single source. The MFC-8460 boasts great performance for a low operating and maintenance price, helping you to get the most out of your business.
Features and Functionality
The high-speed printing and copying capabilities of the Brother MFC-8460 offer an output of up to 30 pages per minute. These high speeds are matched by the resolution of the prints, which come out at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi. The result is a crisp, professional monochrome finish, regardless of your document type.
Users have the option to scan or copy both legal and letter size paper. Multiple and single page documents can be fed into the 50-page auto document feeder for maximum efficiency. Blank paper for prints and copies fit into the standard 250-sheet capacity tray as well as the 50-page multipurpose tray for non-traditional media types. Businesses with larger print needs can also upgrade to a total of 550 pages with a second 250-sheet tray.
For scanning purposes, the Brother MFC-8460 can convert pages to PDF files at up to 19200 x 19200 interpolated dpi in full color. All features area accessible through a backlit, color LCD screen with easy-to-use instructions.
The Brother MFC-8460 can be connected directly to individual computers via the USB or Parallel interface. However, multiple users will find that the built-in Ethernet option is best for networking several computers to the same printer. Large-yield replacement Brother MFC-8460 toner also makes it easier for multiple users to tap into the same machine. MFC-8460 cartridges are offered in 3,500 and 7,000 page yields, and come in standard Black ink only. The use of the TN580 toner cartridge in this printer will save owners money because it offers a lower cost per print than the standard capacity TN550 toner cartridge. The MFC-8460 also uses the DR520 drum cartridge, which is rated at 25,000 pages.
