In today’s emerging business environment, printing, copying, faxing and scanning has become a work staple. Most offices aren’t spacious enough to accommodate separate machines for all each purpose. This is where the multi-function comes in. Brother has developed the Brother MFC-8220 laser multi-function which combines all these features into a single machine at a very reasonable price.
Brother MFC-8220 is a multi function laser machine that has copying, faxing, printing as well as scanning options. It can be used as a standalone fax machine or in conjunction with a computer system as it has a USB port along with a parallel networking interface. The entire multi-function system comes with the following essential equipment like toner cartridge, power cord, drum unit as well as power and phone cords, a handset with cord and a document feeder with a 250-sheet paper tray as well as the manual a setup card for quick installation.
A 250 paper tray capacity enables easy and fast printing and scanning of up to 21 pages per minute. Being a monochrome scanner, this machine offers up to 2400 x 600 dpi print resolution, 300 x 600 dpi monochrome scan resolution and 9,600 dpi enhanced resolution for the varying needs it will satisfy.
The drawbacks associated with this printer include being a little noisy and the occasional paper jam. Other than that it’s an ideal device that offers affordability, reliability and speed in one machine. Its ability to enlarge documents up to 400%, print Asian fonts and the additional handset which can be used as a phone, all make this a great unit. All in all, this machine is a comprehensive device perfect to be used for domestic or work purposes.
Its 32 MB memory is more than that of the previous models. This offers a bit more to heavy fax or image heavy print users as it can spool more, or more complex jobs at once. Since the printing resolution is more than that of the scanning, which is 600 dpi, the device produces better prints of documents and images compared to scans or copies.
In short the Brother MFC-8220 is a highly affordable way of getting the best quality multi-function printer that provides convenience and perfection of use to the customers. It has been developed as a modified model of previous versions to cater to the array of requirements clients have during official or domestic work.
