It even gives you the choice of starting a scan—to a file, to e-mail or elsewhere—either from your computer, using Brothers Control Center software, or from the MFC-8860DNs front panel.

A built-in duplexer lets you print on both sides of a page, and the 50-page ADF (automatic document feeder) also duplexes, so you can scan and fax both sides of a page.

Even better, front-panel menu options let you copy both single- and double-sided originals to your choice of single- or double-sided copies.
