The Brother MFC-9700 is a multifunction laser printer that takes the best features of previous models and adds a flatbed scanning surface for more flexibility. Its fast print speeds and compact size are impressive, and it still manages to come in at a low price that is hard to believe. Buyers will also save on printer toner with affordable Brother MFC-9700 toner.
By adding a flatbed scanner, Brother sacrificed a bit of the compactness of other models, but the tradeoff will likely be worth it for most users. With that in mind, it still takes up a small footprint. The unit measures 16.9 inches by 18 inches by 19.4 inches and weighs 39.6 pounds with the Brother laser toner
installed. Input paper capacity is 100 sheets, which should be large enough for most small office use, and the automatic document feeder can scan up to 10 pages at a time for convenience. An ethernet upgrade is available for those who wish to share the machine on a network.
In addition to the printing, scanning, copying and faxing features, the MFC-9700 also supports PC faxing, which lets users send a fax directly from a connected computer, saving time and extra steps. Print speed is very fast, especially for a home office machine, at up to 15 pages per minute, and the 600 dpi printing resolution offers excellent print quality.
Replacing toners doesn't have to be expensive with the low cost of Brother MFC-9700 toner cartridges. With a capacity of 6,000 pages for the high yield versions, Brother MFC-9700 toner cartridges give users a very low cost per page. Buyers can also opt to use third-party compatible Brother MFC-9700 toner for even lower prices.
The Brother MFC-9700 is an impressive machine with a wide range of features that far exceed expectations given its low price. Its sharp quality, fast speeds and many convenient features make it a great value for any small office.
