3 out of 5 eggsMFC-7860DW

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: Auto duplex
easy copying
sheet feeder

Cons: Network problems (resolved)
Scanner not great for photos
Duplex printing rather slow
Software uninstaller does not uninstall software

Other Thoughts: **Scanner will not find your computer if you have wireless and LAN enabled concurrently**

I've had this for two years and it's given a fairly good performance. I would choose Brother laser printers over HP and Canon any day.

I recently encountered a purplexing problem where the scanner wouldn't find my PC over the network when using the on board buttons, but printing worked and scanning worked when started from the ControlCenter 4 software installed on the PC. In other words, the scanner couldn't find my computer but my computer could send correct instructions to the scanner. Tech support showed me that the problem was that I had recently run an ethernet cable to my PC and had left my wireless adapter active, and the scanner couldn't figure out which connection to make. Actually Tech Support said that my PC MUST use wireless if the printer is wireless but this is not the case and wouldn't make sense in an office environment.

Btw the Brother software uninstaller that you download from the website to troubleshoot such problems doesn't really uninstall anything except the printer driver. You must remove that scanner drivers and the Control Center 4 software manually.

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: Probably prints at some point.

Cons: Wireless setup is not worth the effort. I've tried various methods to set up the wireless functionality and it always ends up with the WLAN status to WLAN OFF. Why bother brother.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat printer

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: simple setup, very quick printing, wireless setup was perfect, at the time was on sale which made this a great deal. prints within 10 seconds of clicking the print button.

Cons: it's only monochrome?

Other Thoughts: i've never owned a laserjet before and wanted a laserjet that wouldn't eat cartridges like they were skittles. this thing looks great, prints very quick, and was a reasonable price at the time.

4 out of 5 eggsScan to email no longer functional

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: I have two of these that have performed brilliantly, replacing a Canon AIO (no 64 bit support) and an HP AIO (no support whatsoever).

Cons: The scan-to-email works from an embedded SMTP server. Until December 11, 2013, this has worked fine, even with Verizon, which requires email to be sent through their server. On that date, something changed, and this function no longer works. This is probably because this printer doesn't support SSL connections. So, with this and a number of other Brother AIO, be warned.

I'm surprised Brother hasn't added this--they've been so prompt in adding support for other things.

5 out of 5 eggsBlack and White Printing at its best

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: 1. Excellent driver support for windows xp, windows 8.1 and Linux.
2. Wireless works. I set this up with a wireless connection to my router about 50 ft away through three walls. Works great.
3. Not a lot of in-your face extra software included with the driver. These folks are all about printing. period.
4. Cheap to run.

Cons: only about 600 pages from initial cartridge between January and September. I Bought the large capacity replacement. We'll see how the large capacity cartridge works out. It should last a couple of years at 1000/yr.

Other Thoughts: On linux, I recommend the brother proprietary driver.

Control Center installed on a Virtualized Win 8 machine.
Write down that default password. You may need it in Control Center to change settings remotely. You may also want to set the configurations on control center so it doesn't start when windows starts.

5 out of 5 eggsOrdering my 4th

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: Easy to set up and use on a wireless network. Duplex printing and okay scanning speed. No failures in the office in over 3 years of use.

Cons: Toner life, even high yield, is a little short of what I would like. The offset is that as we transition to a greater paperless footprint we are also printing less.

3 out of 5 eggsLove the printer. HATE THE NAGWARE!

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: This printer, together with the Brother software, delivers everything I want for light office use, as advertised. In general, I find it an exceptional value.

Cons: I HATE THE NAGWARE! Though I use genuine Brother toner cartridges, it seems as if it begins to tell you CONSTANTLY to replace your toner cartridge when you still have at least 50% life. The nagware even interferes with the printer's function, particularly its scanner. I have run my current cartridge for the last four months with the nagware, longer than I ran it without, and still have not replaced the toner. No need.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is not the old Brother Machines

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: cheap price

Cons: Every 28 days I have change a new toner and every 3 months I have change new drum. If I'm not change it on time like 3 days the printer just die, no warning or override. Just die. It is very bad for business. I changed 4 Brother printers and a fax machine at once. Back to HP (American is better).

Other Thoughts: By selling OME toner and drum is not a good business with brother.

2 out of 5 eggsEnjoy paper jams? Look no further!

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: WiFi works and setup is fairly easy. Duplex printing is great in theory, not in practice in this case. In general I'd say it's a good printer but the Duplex printing issues make this a printer you should avoid.

Cons: Duplex printing jams every 2-3 pages if you are lucky. Lights dim in the room when the printer starts printing.

Other Thoughts: I'd stay away from this model.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Printer with working Linux Drivers

This review is from: brother MFC-7860DW MFC / All-In-One Up to 27 ppm Monochrome Wireless 802.11b/g Laser Printer

Pros: Brother's Linux Drivers just install and work on Ubuntu 12.10. Black and White is good enough for most things. Printing works, Scanning works, fax is likely to work, but I haven't set it up yet. Manual is pretty complete but for Linux setup you'll probably want to read the section on Web Based Management.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased from Newegg, $2.99 to deliver 32 lbs from California to RI, (You folks making a profit? ;-) Ordered Monday evening, arrived at my office Friday Morning.

I bought this for two reasons: 1. sheet fed scanner, 2. Tired of dried out ink jet cartridges at 8000 bucks per gallon.

So far this is working great. I expect a good customer experience. Thanks Brother!

Auto wireless setup did not work so I connected via ethernet and configured wireless manually. No problem. Installed the drivers from the web site. Made sure to pick the right ones for the model.

Plastic Parts are a bit thin so treat it gently to avoid problems
