Summary: We use 4 of these in a medical office. With high volume, they break about every 6-8 months. We keep buying them, however, as we always have exchangeable parts, and there really isn't a lot of competition in the fax machine market. These are better built than the other models we've tried. We tried the 4100 Business Class machines from brother, found they didn't offer that much additional benefit, and were huge.
Summary: I received the item in good condition, Connect it to my phone line and plugged it in after installing toner cartridge. I faxed 13 pages within a very short time of receiving my machine very easy to use. I have not connected to my computer yet to see how the printer works and have not yet received any faxes but having brother procucts in the past I am sure it will work great.
Summary: I have used brother laser printers for over 10 years and have yet to be dissapointed.I was reluctant to replace my old HP 1040 fax which had worked valiantly for me for many years.I finally decided to replace it because the cost of the replacement toner cartridges for the HP 1040 fax were ridiculous. So i decided to try a Brother Laser Fax machine and I am questioning why I did not make the change sooner.
Summary: The printer grabs multiple sheets of paper instead of one and prints the page across the overlap. Had to reprint pages multiple times before it fed properly. Fax is nice that I can answer the phone and it will detect if a fax is coming through since it is a shared line. Have to restart and retry printing 3-4 times before it actually does anything. Junk, do not recommend.
Summary: This equipment arrived minus 2 parts, and without an owners manual. It was obviously used a lot in spite of the write up that said it was hardly used. I would not recommend this vendor. They have not responded to my requests for the missing items.
