Summary: The high-capacity cartridge for the Brother IntelliFax-2840 will set you back around $55 but is rated for 2,600 pages. In addition, the Fax-575 ships with only a starter ribbon cartridge, which is rated for just 30 pages. Still, the price of the Brother Fax-575 is unbeatable, and the performance of this thermal-transfer fax machine is better than anything at or near its price point.
Pros: Inexpensive, Prints on plain paper, Compact and lightweight
Cons: Thermal-transfer ink doesn't last as long, Expensive per-page costs, Slow faxing speeds
