Great replacement for the 7820N I used to have

by DK on 9/28/2010

This printer has met all of my expectations. The Brother 7820N I had was working fine, but it really sucked power. I waited for the next time I needed to replace the toner and started to look for a new multi-function laser that handled duplex printing. I didn't realize that Brother made one that also handled duplex scanning and copying. Bonus! So I ordered the 8085DN as a replacement and upgrade. I am very satisfied. When the printer wakes up to print something, my lights no longer dim like they used to with the 7820N. The software was also a breeze to use with my Macs at home. If you're looking for a duplex multi-function laser printer and don't need fax functionality, I recommend this printer as a consideration.
