Brother MFC-8220 Laser Multifunction Center - used

James Elmer, Amazon
19 September 2011
  • Summary: LOTS of paper jams - my old 4550 worked better. I like the paper tray beneath, it collects less dust, none the less I think that might have something to do with my paper jams. If I needed to use it a lot I would not want it at all. The front door would not open, when given extra effort it broke off the half moon part, seems to work better without it. Did I mention LOTS of paper jams? Eats lots of paper.

Great machine for first 2 years

  • Summary: I echo the findings of the other owner whose machine had a broken plastic gear after 2 years. Worked great, then nothing-to expensive for repair.

  • Summary: We have had 2 brothers MFC machines the latest was MFC-8220 the one before was the same, I am not sure it had the same number but both worked well as a fax and laser printer for 2 years before a plastic gear broke. Both machines had the same problem in about the same length of time.

Brother MFC-8220 Laser Multifunction Printer - Monochrome - Plain Pap

mcpatlin, Overstock
17 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought this same printer a few months ago, and still cannot receive most faxes especially from PCs. When I send one, 9 times out of 10 I get a response of "Poor Line Condition" on the receiving end! I have worked with Brother and no good solution has been found. What a waste of money!!

"better choices available"

CNET
28 June 2004
  • Pros: Cheap, good prices on toner
  • Cons: Need to change separate drum, if you wait too long everything turns grey and does not ever get truely white again. Get an all-in-one with a flat glass panel for copying, sheet copiers are not as good.
