Pros: I have used Panasonic faxes in the past and they are workhorses. This is no exception. It is fast, easy to setup and use, and has many advanced features that you can but are not required to use. It makes great fast copies too. I highly recommend these over Brother. For a laser fax you can't go wrong with this.
Summary: i am in the business of electronics and office supplier since last 9 year. In this period i supply more than 25 units in corporate sectors and i get just 5% complain ratio from costumers. KX-FL511 is heavy duty, low maintenance budget, and easy to operate in every type of environment.
Summary: No problems w/machine except that it constantly feeds multiple pages together!! Has always done this no matter what weight paper is fed into it. Causes a lot of lost time identifying which pages didn't actually get faxed.
Pros: We've had this model in our office ever since I've worked here, which is 5 or 6 years now.
Cons: It has a built in junk thing that can reject faxes from people you put on a list, but it can only store 10 numbers. We get "spam"/"junk" faxes all the time, so having only 10 numbers to block is pretty useless.
Summary: I called the support number and the woman seemed very familiar with this problem. She knew exactly what I was talking about. So apparently it's a common problem.
Pros: The price seemed reasonable for the number of features. Can't say anything more than that at this point because it broke before we could use it for the first time.
Cons: The toner cartridge gets installed into the drum unit, which itself has to be installed. The toner cartridge has to be rotated once placed in the drum. When I did that a metal shield rotated from inside the drum unit and came out of the drum on one side. At that point the toner cartridge and drum unit were no longer functional.
Summary: I'm a fan of Panasonic products so I had high expectations; but: 1. Broadcasting is limited to 20 destinations. 2. Often feeds input document crooked, especially annoying when making multible copies. 3. The menu is far from intuitive. 4. The port for external answering machine does not accept a standard telephone jack. On the plus side: 1. Makes very good copies. 2. Very fast.
Pros: Accurate Image, Efficient, Fast, Sharp Detail
Summary: The company purchased this machine over 15 years ago. We are now in need of a new machine and we are going to purchase the very same one. A good work horse, great for a small office. We also researched other machines, and the reviews were not very promising. So if it worked so well for over 15 years why not buy another.
