We recently finished up our review of the MFC-J6710dw All-in-One, the mid-level inkjet from the MFC-J6000 series so now we have turned our attention to the new MFC-7000 series, the “first in the category” to include both duplex printing and wireless connectivity in a model priced under $300.
Today, we’ll be taking a hands-on first look at the flagship MFC-7860dw, featuring four devices in one compact unit with print speeds up to 27 ppm and a maximum print resolution up to 2400 x 600 dpi.

BUILD AND DESIGN
The Brother MFC-7860dw -design wise – is sort of a cross between what we’ve seen from the MFC inkjets and the single function lasers. It’s got the all black exterior that we saw on both the MFC-J6710dw and the HL-2270dw with the figure of the MFC-J6710dw (large control panel, ADF) and the accents of the HL-2270dw (the glossy black manual feed slot, bottom grip on paper tray).
The dimensions of the MFC-7860dw come in at approximately 16 x 16 x 12 inches and weighs (without consumables) approximately 26 lbs.
The 35-sheet ADF rests atop the 48 bit flatbed scanner with an optical scan resolution up to 600 x 2400 dpi. The MFC-7860dw offers scan-to functionality and a free mobile device scanning application, the Brother iPrint&Scan.
