  • Summary: I've been buying the 8860dn and the previous model (think it was the 8840dn) for several years now mostly because it was the easiest way to get a standalone scan-to-email solution setup. I've also used it for other things such as a fax-to-email gateway, etc.

  • Summary: I purchased this model for work and can honestly state that I use it no more than a couple times a week on average. 14 months of use and now I get skewed printing, a problem that technicians have told me is not an easy/cheap fix.

User Review

mserrab, Ciao

  • Summary: Tiene dos problemas importantes: los documentos escaneados ocupan mucho espacio. una hoja A4, aunque sea a una resolución baja, puede llegar a ocupar de 300 a 600 k. si lo multiplicas por 10 páginas, tienes un documento que dificilmente se podrá enviar por correo electrónico.
