When a growing office is running out of space and needs to improve efficiency, a multi-purpose laser printer would be a good place to start. This unit is versatile yet simple to navigate, offering a scanner, copier and fax machine. There are different models of this unit—the MFC-8820D which includes duplex printing and the MFC-8820DN that consists of built-in duplex printing and networking. The MFC-8820 is the basic model, though it has quite a few bells and whistles for being the most bare of the group.
There is only one Brother MFC-8820 toner cartridge, and it is filled with black printer toner. Though the resolutions are not overly impressive, the speed is not bad at 17 pages per minute. Various different types and sizes of paper work perfectly with this unit, making it capable of completing versatile projects. The 8820 has a 300-sheet capacity, and it connects via USB or parallel ports.
The Brother MFC-8820 toner cartridge has a page yield of just over 3,000 pages. This will be plenty for personal use, though offices may require a bit more. High-capacity Brother toner
cartridges are available separately that can yield 6,500 pages. There is an LCD on the top panel that will alert the user when one of the toners is running low. Replacement Brother MFC-8820 is available online and in stores, either new from the manufacturer or remanufactured by third party vendors.
This unit allows multiple users to connect to it remotely with its web interface. Office workers will not only benefit from the addition of this unit, but the Brother MFC-8820 toner cartridges
will give businesses professional print jobs for a low cost per page. Though this device may not be the best, it certainly serves multiple purposes and will improve the efficiency of the work space.
