Customer Question & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help!
Q Whats the maximum gsm the machine will print
A The MFC-L8690CDW will allow a maximum media weight of 163gsm
Q Is there an OCR Application with the printer? An OCR capability is important to me. Also, I understand that the printer could be or become NFC compatible?
A Yes, the Brother MFC-L8690CDW does feature OCR as part of it's standard scanning features. Unfortunately, the printer does not support NFC printing however, it does feature a wireless interface and you are able to print from mobile devices using the Brother app, Apple AirPrint or Google Cloud Print.
Q Are you able to print on to A6 with this printer? At the moment we print on to labels then stick these onto our cards, would be helpful if we can print straight on to them.
A Hi, Yes the Brother MFC-L8690CDW supports A6 media.
Q Can you use two different types of paper in the trays eg. one with printed letterheads and one with plain paper, then be able to select the required paper type as necessary?
A The Brother MFC-L8690CDW only comes with one 250 sheet input tray as standard. However if you already have or are interested in an additional 250 Sheet Paper Tray, you would be able to fill each tray with different media. Before printing, you can access the printers driver settings to select which tray you wish to print from.
Q Hi I am looking to buy this printer. Does it come with any printer ink/toner or do we have to buy our own.
A The Brother MFC-L8690CDW comes with a black toner cartridge (Up to 3,000 pages) and a cyan, magenta and yellow toner cartridge (Up to 1,800 pages each).
Q Can this device scan directly into Evernote?
A Hi, Yes the Brother MFC-L8690CDW can be used with Evernote.
Q Can i setup the MFC-L8690CDW to link to my computer and store the faxes in my computer memory instead of printing out directly from the machine? I am currently looking for a machine which works like a office copier but not that bulky Thank You Thomas Quak
A Hi, To store faxes in the computer's memory and send them to your computer automatically, you must turn on the PC-Fax Receive feature in the Brother software settings. Doing this will enable you to view the received faxes on the computer.
Q I would like a device that can full duplex scan directly to Onedrive as a searchable PDF (i.e. the OCR has been done by the device without any need for additional software). Is this possible with this device? If it is, is it also possible to have presets for different folders on onedrive (e.g. Business 1, Business 2, Urgent Action needed etc)?
A Yes, the Brother MFC-L8690CDW is capable of all these options. It will do 2-sided scan directly to OneDrive as Searchable PDF. The OCR will be done in the Cloud rather than the device. You can also set different shortcuts to save the scans to different folders. All information will be available within the users guide - or Brother's technical support team would be able to guide you through the process on 08444 999 444.

Good experience
Fast friendly and efficient service. With this kind of service the company will not need a customer complaints department. No comment on the printer as it is not printerlands responsibility. Seems fine.

Happy with the printer
Produces good quality and rapid prints. Photocopier has been useful for occasional use. Did start looking a bit fuzzy after it had been moved, but read the manual (online) and following the calibration process and it all got really sharp again. Has been completely reliable both in terms of waking up when prints are sent to it, and remaining connected to the network - lot better than the previous printer !

Good Printer
I have used this for a while, printing a reasonable amount of colour and black and white. Colours are bright and clear. Printer is fast enough. Paper handling reliable with no jams or misfeeds. It has always woken up when sent a print even after a few days of not being used. WiFi connection is always reliable. Also use the built in copier feature a bit and that works well. Not really tried the scanner. On balance I would recommend this printer - the experience setting up and using it has been painless.
