Product Overview

Brother HL-L8260CDW in More Detail

The Brother HL L8260CDW printer is a flexible colour printer that delivers productivity gains across your business by combining high-speed printing with a range of state-of-the-art connectivity options.

Built to perform

The HL L8260CDW is built to meet the demands of the modern office environment with cloud print, WiFi and high-speed GigaBit networking combined with super fast 31ppm print speeds.

This allows pages to be printed on the go without having to waste time waiting for pages to print at the office. The HL L8260CDW not only prints faster than competing printers it is cheaper to run as well, thanks to its optional high yield cartridges which allow up to 9000 pages to be printed from a single unit.

Better connectivity

Today’s office requires full connectivity for all your business appliances, so the L8260CDW comes with a range of connectivity options including WiFi iPrint&Scan which allows scanning and printing from your smartphone, Google Cloud Print which allows printing direct from the cloud without having to worry about the underlying network infrastructure, and Apple AirPrint which enables direct printing from IOS and OSX devices without the need to install drivers. Gigabit wired network connections are also available for high-speed printing of large documents and files over the network.

Meets the latest environmental standards

Brother’s latest range of colour laser printers are built to comply with the world's toughest environmental standards, including Nordic Swan, German Blue Angel and Energy Star. This ensures that your printer uses as little environmentally damaging materials as possible, helping to reduce the environmental impact of your printing.

The HL L8260CDW also uses Brother's latest range of toner, which is manufactured from wax in place of traditional oil based products. This has more than just environmental benefits, it helps speed up the printing process and gives black text a more professional matte finish. Wax based toner also reduces the risk of smudging on images and text documents.

    On 21/11/2017 12:10:25
  • Does the Brother printer listed here have a scanner function as well?

    No, unfortunately, the Brother HL-L8260CDW is a single function colour laser printer. If you're looking for a multifunction printer, you can view all our available models here.

    On 06/09/2017 14:34:39
  • Does the firmware or software on the HP-L8260CDW colour laser printer allow you to control the depth of printing, ie, lighter or darker

    It depends on the purpose for printing lighter; the HL-L8260 has an option to reduce toner consumption which will make the document appear lighter (this feature is not advised for photographs or Greyscale images). There are also options to adjust the quality and speed of the print which will also affect the lightness of the output.

    On 27/06/2017 17:33:36
  • Is there a 500 sheet paper tray availlable for the Brother HL-L8260CDW?

    Unfortunately there is only a optional 250-sheet paper tray that can be added to this model.

  • Steve 02 December 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Brother HL 8260CDW

    Really pleased with this printer, especially as I got it during the £75 cashback deal. Great printer and toners are cheaper than other major manufacturers (comparatively). It is a good size for desktop and easy to fill/operate on there. Also the usual sterling service from Printerland, from whom I buy all of my printers.

  • Graham Bull 02 July 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Looks to be a Good Solid Printer

    Received today this Colour Laser Printer, a replacement for a 20 year old B/W Laser. Initial impressions are of a well made, solid printer - set up instructions easy to follow, connecting to Mac a doddle. Printed a few sheets, good quality, fast printing esp. duplex. Looking forward to many years of life!
