Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to install and use Easy to use and install, the document feeder is a nice feature and the wireless connection to all the PC's in my small office is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MFC-7860DW I have used Brother peripherals for many years. I have updated my MFC-7820n, with an MFC-7860DW, to match my daughter's new MFC-7860DW. The MFC-7860DW prints faster and is fully wireless and reliable. I need to adjust the settings to marginally improve the print quality. All round, the usual good Build Quality from Brother. I would recommend this printer for home and office use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-in-one printer We bought this printer to replace our old all-in-one. The set-up was very quick and the print quality is good. The speed is excellent and is also has a fax facility, which we had not expected, but will come in useful. The one (minor) gripe it that it is fairly noisy, but as the prints are so quick this is not really an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great All-In-One A4 B/W Laser! Bought the MFC-7860DW a few weeks ago, to replace an ageing MFC-7225N, that after 10 years, was starting to have a few problems (network card had gone). So far, extremely happy with the 7860DW as an A4 B/W printer, Fax, Copier and Scanner. The addition of the document feed and flat bed for both fax, copy & scan is great. Noise level is no more than the 7225N, which is what you expect from a laser print (but worth it rather than fussy/messy/noisy Ink Jet!). Also the duplex is really useful. It's quicker than the 7225N too. Currently using on a wired network, but also good to have the wireless option (we have a couple of other Brother B/W A4 wireless printers and they are very handy to avoid wires/networking issues). The installation was quick and simple (even on Mac OS 10.7 & 10.8 machines!), plus the scan straight to desktop is a breeze!! The only problem is if more people in the company see how easy the scanning is to use - my office will get a lot busier!! Very happy to recommend this for business or home/office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your needs covered The MFC 7860DW scans to a very high standard and is very useful as a photocopier in the school science department the printer is networked to 10 computers and never lets us down overall an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon MFC-7860DW Outstanding product which has given me so many more options when working from home. Scanning facilities via Paper Port are brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product hits sweet spot of speed, connectivity, compatibility - and small footprint. We chose this Brother printer to replace an older model that had simply worn out over seven years from the joint demands of an academic sharing with a free-lance consultant. Our shared home office is a very small space, and we split the difference between a Mac OS and Windows, so our choice needed to be robust, compact, and easy to set up across two different platforms - and have the capacity to scan and send faxes as well! This fast little printer exceeds expectations.
