The Brother MFC-8870DW is an all-in-one black and white laser printer that is suitable for small to medium-sized businesses and is a step up from the MFC-8860DN.  The unit includes print, copy, scan, and fax capabilities to provide all-round office printing functionality.  It is more advanced than the MFC-8860DN since it includes wireless connectivity which the MFC-8860DN lacks, making it capable of printing, scanning, and sending faxes wirelessly.

The MFC-8870DW features high printing and copying speeds at up to 30 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-8870DW also features automatic duplex functionality for double-sided printing and supports ethernet, USB, and parallel port connectivity.  The printer has an MSRP of $599 and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
