For an inexpensive multifunction printer, Brother's MFC-8220 is fast and offers most of the features a small office needs.
The Brother HL-2040 makes a fine first laser printer. To serve a small workgroup, seek its sibling, the HL-2070N.
Excellent print quality, speed, and add-ons make this a great monochrome laser printer for a fast-paced office.
Despite this laser's speed and high duty cycle, its meager memory and poor output make it hard to recommend.
The Brother MFC-J4510DW all-in-one printer leads with a stylishly compact chassis and its Web-connectivity rounds out an impressive list of useful features for small offices.
The Brother MFC-7860DW and its autodocument feeder, wireless connectivity, and simple installation make it an apt match for small businesses with moderate printing needs.
The Brother MFC-990CW is a speedy, fully capable all-in-one device that earns our recommendation for an individual or a family that will make use of its touch screen and telephone/answering machine. Mechanical issues notwithstanding, this is the highest-scoring Brother printer we've tested to date.
The Brother MFC-490CW is an improvement over the more expensive MFC-5890CN, but that still doesn't excuse its drudging print speeds and mechanical issues under the hood. Instead of dealing with these headaches, we recommend you look toward the Canon Pixma MX330, which will give you consistent performance and a variety of extra features for the same price.
