Deployed as a flatbed multifunctional center with network aware components this printing device can deliver laser technology based solutions to the host computer system. The 30 printed pages per minute supported by the device driver is used to match the fast data transfer speeds that are achieved when the Brother MFC-8460N USB Printer connects to the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host computer system. The seemingly complex operation of this hardware component is supported by a user friendly interface delivered by its device driver. This software based interface attempts to match the same user friendly onboard controls found on the front panel of the supported hardware component. The onboard controls are supported by a Liquid Crystal Display that provides the computer user with the visual link to the command sets. The network functionality built into the Brother MFC-8460N USB Printer allows for the sharing of all feature sets to the computer network environment.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
When deployed either as a standalone, computer attached, or network shared resource the Brother MFC-8460N USB Printer and its corresponding device driver delivers extensive support for BR-Script3 and PCL6 emulation. These printing programming languages are two of the most widely used in terms of laser printing technology. The emulation process for the BR-Script3 is the manufacturers marketing version of the PostScript3. In the emulation process supported by the device driver the Brother MFC-8460N USB Printer attempts to generate an output that has a quality that is comparable to those of the PCL6 and PostScript3 specifications. The monochrome laser printing technology delivered by this printing hardware component is supported by a standard built-in memory of 32 MB. The computer user has the option of expanding this memory capability up to 544 MB. Essentially the bigger the dedicated printer memory the more print job requests can be accommodated. The printer memory module also allows for a better and faster handling of print jobs. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother MFC-8460N USB Printer errors before installing any driver updates.
