The Brother DCP-8060 is advertised as a digital copier and laser printer, but this may be underselling it a bit. In fact, it can also do full-color scanning at very high quality, making it a very capable multifunction device which only lacks faxing capabilities to make a true all-in-one machine. Its fast speeds and sharp quality are impressive, and users will save on printer toner
with the low cost of Brother DCP-8060 toner.
The main focus of the DCP-8060 may be its copying functionality. It can operate as a color or monochrome copier using toners without the need for a computer connection, so many users may use it only for this purpose. When connected to a host computer via parallel or USB; however, it becomes a very robust device that can handle almost any task an office user needs.
The 50-sheet automatic document feeder is larger than average for such a compact and affordable machine, and makes it easy to scan multiple pages at a time with very little work. The flatbed scanner adds flexibility for larger materials and those that won't fit through the feeder. Input paper capacity is 300 sheets divided between a 250-sheet standard tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray, but a second optional tray can be added, bringing the total to 550 sheets.
The cost of replacing the Brother toner cartridge
is very low, thanks to affordable cartridges. Third-party compatible Brother DCP-8060 toner is available at even lower prices than OEM versions, and the large capacity of Brother DCP-8060 toner cartridges means a low cost per page for buyers.
For the small or medium office that needs a multifunction device, the Brother DCP-8060 is an excellent choice. It has the fast speeds and versatile feature set to get the job done quickly and efficiently, as long as buyers don't mind the lack of faxing capabilities.
