Brother MFC-8480DN
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Sep 4, 2009

The Brother MFC-8480DN is an all-in-one black and white laser printer that is suitable for small to medium-sized businesses and is an upgrade to the MFC-8460N. The unit includes print, copy, scan, and fax capabilities to provide all-round office printing functionality. It is more advanced than the MFC-8460N since it includes automatic duplex functionality for double-sided printing, has a front USB port, and is Energy Star qualified, all of which the MFC-8460N lacks. The MFC-8480DN features high printing and copying speeds at up to 32 pages per minute with a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi. The unit offers a large paper capacity of up to 550 sheets with the optional expandable tray and includes a 50-page automatic document feeder for fast processing of multi-page documents. It has a legal-size document glass for scanning and copying large documents and is capable of flatbed color scanning at a resolution of up to 19,200 x 19,200 dpi. The MFC-8480DN also features a ... PROS: (1) Ethernet connection - usable on a network without requiring an online PC host (2) large scanner - supports legal (3) 3rd generation product - most bugs have been ironed out (4) affordable price (5) laser printer - high yeild, high B&W print quality ... CONS: (1) lacks the duplex copying and faxing of the 8860DN (2) cannot print colour (3) old and boring looking (4) poor customer support

MFC-8480DN redeamed by paperport
4 Star Review   By f.glos on Provantage (Channel Engine) - Oct 11, 2009   

Strengths: Great MFC, PaperPort saves the day with scan other side feature.

Weakness: mechanical duplex not for scan/fax/copy, only print

In Previous review was very disappointed because duplexing wasn't for scan/fax/copy but only for printing. But the Paperport software that comes with the unit has a feature to scan the other side which makes the MFC much more palatable. You simply scan one side, flip the stack of pages over and click the button that says scan other side. It automatically collates the pages in the proper order. Now you can print two sided (duplex).

Disappointed with duplexing
2 Star Review   By f.glos on Provantage (Channel Engine) - Oct 1, 2009   

Strengths: Nice MFC, but like previous models better mfc8860dn

Weakness: duplex is only for printing not for copying/scanning crinkles envelopes

previous models had duplex printing/copying/printing This model even has a duplex button, making you think it could do duplexing like it predecessors, but no!! I had purchased with that in mind It doesn't appear that Brother even offers and equivalent to the mfc8860dn, now you have to get the one with wireless to have an equivalent.
