As a fairly basic fax machine and laser printer, the Brother Intellifax 2850 doesn't have a lot of advanced features, but its solid speed and affordability could appeal to the right buyer. It can output up to 10 pages per minute when printing, and includes an economy printing mode to help keep the cost of Brother 2850 printer toner down. One of the better aspects of the 2850 is its small footprint, as it will consume very little space on a desktop. Despite its small frame, it still has a paper capacity of up to 200 sheets, requiring less frequent reloads. It also includes an automatic document feeder for scanning, which can hold up to 20 sheets at a time. For faxing, the 14.4 kbps model is a bit disappointing, as it is slower than most models on the market. When printing, users can connect it to a computer via parallel or USB port, and it supports either PC or Mac computers.
