    We switched to this in our small home-office (1 Attorney, 1 Photographer, 1 Student) after growing frustrations with inkjet printers that vacuumed our wallets dry with ink usage. The vast majority of our output is monochrome, and we were tired of replacing ALL the ink cartridges even though all we ever used was black.

    This unit copies, scans, and prints perfectly. Setting up on our wireless network was easy. It works with all our Macintosh computers.

    My only real complaint is the bright blue light on the front of the unit that stays on ALL the time. As this is a home office it is like having a big night light in the next room all the time. I find myself laying things atop it at night to prevent it from making the whole house glow blue.

    Great value for a multifuction laser/scan/fax. I use the print and scan functions, and do not use the fax. We don't print high volume or need fast output.

    User interface is just OK. Usable, but not super easy and intuitive.

    The drivers were a huge headache for me running Mac OS 10.7.3. I had to contact Brother tech support and it is a known problem with Apple's Software Update. It is fixed now, but I was used to Software Update easily hooking me up with the appropriate drivers with no issues at all.

    Our last multifunction scan/printer was an HP that wore out after a few years. Used to be high quality but their build quality has worsened over the years. We heard good things about Brother and decided that, at this price point, we should try them out.

        Comments about Brother MFC-7860DW Wireless Monochrome All-in-One Laser Printer:

        This is a perfect MF printer for a small office/business. Especially so as it has duplex printing and also two sided scanning. For the size of the printer I wonder how it scans/prints on both sides. Network set up was a breeze. Control software is also good.

        Minor things that are irritating is the LCD display is too light even ater adjusting contrast/brightness.
        Another one is I have not been able to set default to duplex. But I am sure that can be done.

            Tired of HP inkjets, I took a chance on this Brother lasar - and no regrets. Super fast! A few interesting things of note: The manual doesn't say where the on/off switch is located! But you'll find it hidden on the side of the machine. The printer makes a humming noise on standby, then goes into silent deep sleep mode (after about 10 mins) when it realizes you're not using it. It uses a lot of power, so much so that when it starts, the lights in my home office flicker! I'm still trying to figure out the accompanying software. You don't seem to be able to save a low ink profile, so I have to adjust for a lower DPI every time I print - which I find a little annoying. I will say that this printer is very sturdy, solid build. It's heavy duty and will be a dream to anyone who is tired of inkjets that constantly break down and cost a fortune in ink. I could not believe the size of the box this thing came in - gigantic! When unboxed, it's smaller. B and H does an incredible job of secure packing.

              Used in my daughter's dorm room. Pretty Fast, sharp print quality. The printer is monochrome though it does have color scan capability. It has very good connectivity options though my daughter usually connects her laptop directly to the printer.

              The size is fairly small for the print speed and its ok for the dorm room though smaller would be better given the size of the desk. My daughter is ok with the size.

              You can print a lot of pages with the toner and I think the toner should last her the whole year.

                    This is good all in one machine. After returning 3 others, I finally settle for this one. I wanted laser, wireless copy/scan/ print machine, with a feeder. Faxing is not so important for me and I wish it would not default on faxing. Otherwise, I love it. The Color would have been even better but money talks....

                          Great feature set for the money. Easy set up for me. I just plugged it in to my wired network and let it DHCP. Installed the drivers from the CD without problem. Easy web management. Don't understand complaints about noise. Seems average to me while printing, then goes silent in sleep mode pretty quickly.

                            we use this all-in-one for all of our copying and printing needs, it works phenomenally faster and better than any ink-jet we have ever had/used. also it is actually more economical to use this laser than inkjet. and it only uses 2.5w in sleep mode.

                                  I replaced a Brother MFC-7340 that is still in great working condition with this new on because I wanted to be able to print wirelessly from my laptop in the living room. Works like a champ, prints very fast! I will always be staying with Brother lazer printers.

                                    Easy install, Unit runs quickly and faster than older unit that lasted almost 10 years. Network sharing is much faster than older model. I have also bought this unit for my home as well as for our small office.

                                    Hands down the best multi-function device for the price! The only reason I did not give it a full 5-stars is because it does not support SSL encryption on email accounts so you effectively cannot use any of the popular email accounts like gmail, hotmail, yahoo! mail, etc. to setup the scan-to-email function. Also, it does not support printing of emails from iPhone. Otherwise, it is a great product for the price.

                                    I have had this multifunction machine for about two weeks in a small office environment and I have faxed, printed (including duplex), copied, and scanned. So far the machine performs like a champ with quick starts, quick output, and quality copies, prints, and scans. I would recommend this machine to anyone interested in a low cost multifunction machine. I was so impressed, I bought a second one for my family to use at home
