Excerpt: My husband did all the researching when it came to buying our new printer. I am a bit technologically challenged so I figured I would not use it much - I was wrong - I love it and it is so easy to use! I have no problem making copies, scanning documents, printing pages or even "duplexing". It really does so many things (I'm sure some of which I have not even yet discovered). The Brother MFC-784W All-In-One Laser Printer was also very affordable.
Excerpt: Before purchasing this printer, my husband and I did a lot of research, reading reviews from consumers and consumer reports/magazines, etc. This printer received rave reviews everywhere (with an occasional angry review) Let me save you some time: this printer is amazing and deserving of the praise it has received. Print quality is clear and professional, even the toner save mode print quality is great.
Excerpt: The Brother MFC-7840W is a totally awesome printer! My husband bought it on sale, and we have been totally happy with it. This printer is truly multi functional. It has a paper feed on top to load sheets in that you wish to copy, or you can use the copy screen like a standard photo copier. I've successfully photocopied letters, ID, passports, and other important papers, and they come out great. You can adjust the dark/light level depending on what you need.
Summary: Purchased the Brother MFC-7840W for $209.99 and well worth the cost. I did not need a color laser printer, so I researched many of the black-and-white multifunction laser printers for my business. I wanted a wireless printer because I did not have the room next to the server to put a printer. Of all the printers I researched, I was stuck between the Samsung SCX-4623FW Wireless and this Brother printer.
Summary: Like some of the other reviewers, it took me a while to get it set up and "talking" to my other computers on the wireless network. I have one computer on XP and another on Vista and I had to overcome different problems for each one so don't give up. Now that it's all set up, it works exactly the way I need it to. I am a graduate student and print out lots of documents, articles and data as well as my own research articles.
Summary: I have zero complaints about this machine. Fast, quiet, well built. Has all the features we wanted: printer, scanner (with multiple document feeder), copier, fax. Works seamlessly with Windows XP, Mac OS X and Linux (all of which are used in my home). Wireless setup was painless. Excellent software for the Mac. Drum and printer cartridges are reasonably priced, even the OEM stuff.
