Summary: So far so good. This is a more production level fax machine for day-to-day use. I put it into our warehouse operations where they have to fax a lot of things to shippers etc. Holds up to the daily use and different people using it.
Summary: I bought this item because it is clearly advertised as having a "scanner". It does not! It cannot scan!!! It costs about $100 more than the next best Brother fax of similar type, which I gladly paid because I need a scan function. Time to return!!
Summary: We needed a simple fax with few controls and one that was easy to use. This fit the bill. I had to give no training to people using it. Toner is simple to replace. The only thing it is missing is a visible paper indicator to tell me its low on paper. Not a big deal but would have been nice.
Summary: This printer is advertised as wireless. However, when I attempted to setup the wireless functionality, the wireless setup instructions included with the printer were not compatible with the printer. For example, the instructions say to press the GO button located on the top left of the printer, but there is no GO button on the printer. I emailed Brother customer support for assistance with the setup.
Summary: Have always bought Brother faxes. This model would not send or receive a fax. Manufacturing quality is down from previous units. I spent 1/2 a day on Saturday trying to make it work. Brother Support only operates during business hours. This means that I would have to shut down my business for 1/2 a day to see what is wrong with it. Have returned it to Amazon.
Excerpt: This fax machine replaces an 11 year old brother model 2800 which was not worth the cost to rep oar. We are very pleased with the 2940. It is faster with better design and features than our old one plus it can serve as black and white printer should one of our dedicated printers need service. We strongly recommend this fax machine for small to medium office environment.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Excellent Print Quality, Fast Operation, Quiet, Reliable
