Brother MFC-685W printer is good for a small business.

  • Excerpt: I have owned the Brother MFC-685W printer now for a little over a year. At this time, I do not use the fax/phone capabilities, but that will change in the future. I have found the overall usage of this printer to be fairly easy to use. The accompanying booklets were easy to read and understand. The copy mode works just fine. I never had an issue with it. The fax mode worked fine the one time I used it (to fax in my printer registration and warranty info).

Solid printer for a large home, or small buisness

  • Excerpt: This is one heck of a do-it-all printer... And I mean that when I say that... It prints, it scans, it faxes. Its not a flimsy piece of falty crud... And it does all this over a network if you set it up. Supports both WIFI and Ethernet outa the box. Heck, it can do some things off USB sticks and other flash sources even. And to boot, its ink is cheap and of a reasonable capacity... Rated about 4-500 pages. Which for 3x8-12$ for collor and 12-18$ for black isnt bad!

easy to use, when you figure it out

  • Excerpt: The Brother 4 in 1 printer is a bit of a challenge to learn. It comes with a copier, scanner, fax, and printer. It also has a telephone receiver connected to it, although if you don't wish to use it, the machine also comes with a hard piece of plastic to cover the hole where the receiver was removed. I have it connected wirelessly to my laptop and my desktop.

Good all-in-one machine

  • Summary: Brother makes some good all-in-one printer/scanner/copier/fax machines. The print quality is very good. Only things I would find fault with is that their machines tend to be slow. If you don't do a lot of printing and don't need things as fast as possible, my opinion is that Brother gives you a lot of bang for the buck. I also like it's size and can fit nicely in most places. It's wireless capabilities are a plus.

Needed a Replacement Printer

  • Summary: Brother has never been one of my favorite printer manufacturers until I picked up a model MFC-665cw for my business fax. I was pleased with the performance of this unit. Wireless conectivity, good color and quick easy to use scanner make this unit the go-to machine in the office. One problem with the ink jet industry is that they continually change the cartridges.

"Feature Rich Mulitpurpose Printer, with flaws"

  • Pros: I love the set of features in this printer. Scanner quality is outstanding
  • Cons: In addition to the slow high quality printing mentioned by other reviews here, the other flaws are its printing process paper feed mechanism and its fax/copy paper feed mechanism.
