Summary: If you need an 11x17 printer this may work well for you. Set up was easy. Quality is great. Speed is pretty good. I haven't tried the fax yet, but everything else works well. I do wish the 11 x 17 paper loaded completely within the printer, but I don't use it to often so I can live with the fact...
Summary: This machine is not bad for the price but it does not have quite the color clarity that my older HP Deskjet had. It also seems to take a while when you are printing or copying something. It has to do a lot of internal stuff prior to actually printing the finished product.
Summary: I have been waiting for several years for someone to come out with an affordable wide format printer for desktop use, and this printer is it! Set up was a breeze, and I even connected to my network that was set up by my IT guy...the instructions were very clear.
Summary: The Amazon service was perfect. The above mentioned rate of 5 stars is for the Amazon Cutomer Service. The Brother MFC 6890 CDW arrived on promissed date. The down load disks were missing. The machine was replace within 3 days.
Summary: My lord is this thing huge! Could easily be 50-70% lighter and we would all save money. Clearly an old office copier/fax design given some no brainer e-feature makeovers for the 21st century. Slower even than the featherweight HPs.
Summary: If you are a frustrated HP user, like me, try the Brother MFC-6890CDW. I had a HP all-in-one 7780. The print quality was excellent, but the software was not reliable. Four months after the warranty expired there was a hardware failure, such that I could only print from a computer, nothing else.
I really like this piece of equipment, even though it's a little large

Summary: I bought this for my home office because I needed a new all in one, especially the scanner. It's very nice. The only negative thing I could say is that it's a little large. Otherwise, it uses a reasonable amount of ink, prints with no jams, scanning is easy to set up too.
Summary: After using this printer's predecessor (MFC-6490CW) for over a year, I can offer the following: My requirements are very specific. I need ledger-size (11x17) scanning and printing...period. Just try to find an AIO at this price that will do that (unless you want to pay $600+?
