Brother MFC-5860cn User Reviews

Brother MFC-5860cn
“The Brother MFC-5860cn has handled the job superbly. It is affordable to buy ink and I can now print invoices, sales letters, and labels from any of the workstations in the network. The fax has performed flawlessly on our VOIP phone system, and the excellent scanner and Color/B&W copier with 35 sheet feeder is a bonus that would be hard to do without once you’ve used it. I only use the OCR for mailing list/labels and it has worked fine. I only print to my HP for photos and presentation quality materials since it cost twice as much for ink, and only has one tray, and the HP software is still very buggy after numerous calls to HP support always starting with “mohwor prease” and ending with no resolution to the 25 copies of HPBIOD running in task manager after I printing with this printer. I have found the Brother MFC 5860cn to be a great solution for my business.” – by V. Weidler

fairly satisfied – not so much anymore
“I’ve been looking for a new printer for a while, and finally settled on this one. Fairly satistfied with the result. The printer is solidly built, print quality is very good to excellent, networking was extremely easy, fax and copy work well, and the 250 sheet second paper tray is great. Also, the Mac support is superior -which after many years of dealing with sub-par and bloated HP OS X drivers is a welcome change. Criticisms: a little slow; there is no built-in color LCD for previewing pictures when printing directly from a memory card (you have to print an index sheet and then manually key-in the number of the pic you want to print); and photo quality is okay but not great. (visible banding and colors look dull). Overall though, great printer.” – by zolo

Great Machine
“Great working machine. Prints quickly in full color with good detail, great faxes, easy to scan documents. 4 stars because the tricky paper tray selection. I can’t seem to set the computer up to automatically switch to the correct paper tray between applications so it will not print a letter size document on a legal size page, etc. Other than that, great machine.” – by D.

Best printer I’ve owned
“Arived timely, perfect condition. Performs flawlesly once set up and familiarized. Mine is partly shared use in a small, 4 person real estate office. Love the two trays for automatic letter & legal size printing without changing paper, a feature hard to find in this price range. The four segregated color print cartridges are inexpensive to purchase and give decent quantity printing. Print quality is excellent. For my business I mostly use “fast normal” setting to conserve ink. I definitely recommend this machine for home, home office and light office use.” – by Texrealt
