Small businesses of less than ten people might benefit from leasing a Brother fax MFC or copy machine, while medium to larger businesses might need to look to another copier company to fulfill their office’s needs. Brother copiers work well for home and small offices due to their compact size and slower speed. Though Brother copy machines may not print as rapidly as a corporate copier model, they make up for speed in features. A Brother copier lease might include a USB interface to print directly from a flash drive, a digital screen, duplex printing capabilities and a top feeder for auto-copying.

Best Color MFC
In the inkjet color printing segment, Brother MFC-6490CW is the best inexpensive printer that still provides nice features. While it can print and scan up to tabloid size (11x17 inches), it works as a stand-alone fax machine or a network fax machine, scans and prints documents and sends email as well.With two paper drawers, 400 sheet capacity and a 50-page automatic document feeder, this device provides greater flexibility to work with every type of office document with ease. The compact size and light weight save space. Other features include 6000x1200 dpi and a print speed of 35 PPM for black and white and 28 PPM for color. Although the print speed is considered slow when compared with other printers in this segment, the photo quality is not high and there is no duplex option, with a price tag of $300, this printer is a great buy.
Best Monochrome MFC
For fast and high quality monochrome printing, Brother MFC-8480DN is a perfect choice. It can scan, print and fax on a network while being a stand-alone copier and fax machine as well.This printer comes with 50-page ADF, 1200x1200 dpi, 32 PPM print speed, 250-sheet input and 150-sheet output paper capacity and supports duplex printing. The price is $400. Wi-Fi and duplex scanning are the two functions that are missing in this device. If you need these two features, a better choice is Brother MFC-8890DW, which provides similar features but costs around $500.
Brother also has copiers that deliver higher print volume. Priced at $799, the MFC-L9550CDW is shipped with a 6,000-page toner cartridge, 300-sheet capacity and 32 PPM to help you print large projects uninterrupted with ease.
