Though discontinued recently, the Brother MFC-8640D is a wonderful addition to any small or midsized business or office. Don't worry about it being discontinued, new and used versions are still readily available online, and the laser toner

It offers 32 MB of memory and a monthly duty cycle of up to 20,000 printed pages. It can copy, scan, print and fax, and only one Brother MFC-8640D toner cartridge is all that is needed for printing.
Using the black printer toner
, the printer and copier both have the ability to create up to 21 pages per minute. Resolutions of 2400x600 dpi are also possible.

He scanner can reach resolutions of up to 9600 dpi, which is quite impressive.
Though the Brother toner
might seem a little pricey, remanufactured versions of the Brother MFC-8640 toner cartridges are available for a smaller price. The remanufactured toner cartridges

User reviews of the Brother MFC-8640 are very positive, much like the Brother HL-2140 toner
printer. Consumers love automatic document feeder and duplexing function. Set up and installation are easy to do, and using the multifunction unit is simple as well, according to users. Envelopes don't print, which is a concern for many users; however, its ability to print on so many other media types is excellent. The best quality about it, though, seems to be its inexpensive Brother MFC-8640 toner.
