Good printer

Hoosier Girl, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: This Brothers printer has been working good for me for over 5 years now. And the toner seems to last forever. I like being able to copy and scan to PDF with the software provided. I admit that I never did figure out how to fax, but I don't really need that feature.

A good five years

  • Summary: I bought this printer in 2008. I highly recommend it. My husband and I are both teachers and this printer came in very handy. We used it wirelessly for our two different computers for scanning and printing. UPDATE: Five years later, every single job gets jammed. I used the right drum kit.

Great printer!

  • Summary: I purchased my printer in September of 2008, and it is still going strong. I have only hit a few glitches, but nothing horrible. For example, when I use the automatic document feeder sometimes the documents towards the back of the pile become crooked for the scanning process.

Terrible Wireless Connectivity-Fixed With Updates

Nila, Amazon
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Prints and scans okay, seems to be a little lighter & clearer than the similar Canon Imageclass MF we use. Prints significantly slower than the canon, and only can feed 1 page to print on at a time, otherwise your best bet is to pull out the tray and load the paper in reverse order.

Great product

Ashik, Amazon

  • Summary: After using HP AIO's for many years I decided to try this product. PROS: 1. Excellent software. Customizable pre-set function buttons (PC and product). 2. Great performance in all functions. 3. Network performance perfect. 4. Surprisingly, a very good 170 page English user's guide. CONS: 1.

Great Home Office Printer

Frederick, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: It's like a mini version of what you have at work and it's great for my home office. I already have a photo printer but needed to add the ability to scan and print more documents faster. I didn't want to put the printer in my living room so wireless was important to me.

Brother MFC-7840W Wireless Multifunction Center

Dakota Bill, Amazon
28 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a great product for home and small office. I have a Dell laptop with Vista and a Gateway desktop with Windows 7. Both computers and the Brother are networked through my NetGear wireless router. The enclosed drivers and setup CD worked in both computers without incident.

Great Multifunction albeit scanning software is archaic

Greg S., Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Environment: Apple Mac OSX 10.6 Will not list what other reviewers said about the features of this unit. It is a great average-priced MF printer that (which is very important) does scans over LAN or WiFi.

Perfect For A Home-Office

BB, Amazon
31 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this as a home-office printer. I was using my Canon MP780 All-In-One, but realized that the print quality of my letters was not as crisp as I would like for a professional output. So, after two days of online research, I bought this printer.
