Summary: This printer/scanner/copier works great for my home office needs. Easy use, low maintenance. And the cartridge prices for it have gone down in price significantly since I replaced first one! Scanning and uploading old family photos for emailing to family is also fairly 'easy' - once you figure it out ! ha!
Bought this fax over 1 year ago (refurbished) works like a charm!

Summary: Very happy with the Brother All in One printer/fax, I use this as a printer and fax as well. It's for home use so it gets very light usage, but so far after over one year this product works great and I am very happy with it. Got it for a great price due to being REFURBISHED, but it works perfectly and I would recommend it to anyone else considering Refurbished. I have always been skeptical about buying refurbished, but the price was so tempting that I couldn't resist.
Works good, had to be set up by IT person for all functions

Summary: I use this machine in my micro-medical practice. It has the ability to fax to file (no printing) and this works well but the only problem is if your server goes down, this will not work and you will not know it until you haven't gotten faxes for a few hours. You will also not be able to retrieve those "stored" faxes (or at least I can't figure out how). Easy to print with. Do the thing with the black electrial tape on the drum to extend your toner cartridge life.
Excellent printer, can use inexpensive third party toners

Summary: This is my second brother printer, after my 7820N died. Works great with Ubuntu 11.04 Linux and Windows 7. The network scanning and printing features allow me to have a single printer set up in my entire house that the whole family can use. Pros: ----- * Can use inexpensive third party Toner * Quieter than previous models * Built in paper feed for the scanner * one touch copy, print, fax, scan * Linux support Cons: ----- none so far
Great Multi-function unit, plus works with Ubuntu!

Summary: I purchased this printer 18 months ago to replace an aging laser printer which was noisy and out of toner. I am 100% happy with this printer - the installation was easy, even using Ubuntu linux. I did have to fix the IP of the printer to a static address, but that is pretty easy to do if you follow the instructions.
Summary: We bought this for an office with 10 people to consolidate a fax and a copier, this machine works great. We are not using it as a scanner at this time, but we also have 2 Brother MFC7840s that work great for scanning and this machine uses the same driver, etc. Would not hesitate to buy another as the machine has great features for the money, toner isnt too expensive and these seem to hold up better than most other brands.
Summary: excellen unit - good seller-super unit for small office..........................................................................................................................................................
Summary: I have had this model for less than a year and it is versatile. I just bought new laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate and called up Brother. They sent me the newest Paperport Scanning software for $4.95 plus shipping to replace the older version for Windows XP that came with the unit when I bought it. Scanning is moderately fast, sheet feeder sometimes takes two sheets at a time but vast majority of scans using the feeder are flawless. Print quality is excellent.
