Excerpt: We have three of these machines. After eight years of service we have to replace one as papers are jamming. Used mainly for faxing, but quite often for copies. I looked into other fax/copy/scan/print machines & decided to get the same model again. The drum and toner seems to last forever. Both are a little expensive, but compared to others they are still cost effective. I would highly recommend this machine.
Summary: I have had two of these and recommend it. The only drawback is that it does not have a flatbed scanner, but I would rarely use that. Spend the money and get this over an ink-jet. It will pay for itself the first time you go to buy ink. This thing is kind of big, it is nearly commercial quality. If you want to put it on a small desk you might look elsewhere. It is not big for what it is, but if you are buying it for home use just know you might need a larger space for it.
Summary: A year of service and it still works great. We use it on a network and print from multiple computers. It has performed 100% flawlessly and we would buy this again due to the ease of use and reliability.
Excerpt: I have never bought any printer, fax or scanner that wasn't a HP. When I needed a new fax, I looked at the offerings from HP & was very disappointed. This Brother got great reviews & I decided to try it. I am very glad I did. It is a wonderful fax. It can keep up with my extremely busy fax traffic that comes into my office. When I send a multi-page fax it puts it right through, no jams, no problems.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: This replaces an earlier version of the same machine that has effectively handled my small business needs for 15 years with no repairs needed in the interim. The price of this unit at Amazon was about half of the best price I could find anywhere else. I love the high output toner cartridge, which makes printing very economical. The printing quality is excellent.
Summary: This is the 2nd Brother MFC machine I have purchased for my company. It is well made, easy to use & has low cost maintenance. If your needing a good office machine, this does the job, from copy to scan & fax it get's the job done well. If your looking for a multi purpose machine look at the Brother line, they seem to make good products.
Summary: My Brother MFC-8220 arrived on schedule. The transaction-as usual- was very easy. I like the process of paying using PayPal. The MFC-8220 installation process was straightforward and I did not have any problem setting it up with my computer. Since I do not need to print anything in color, I prefer the laser(black & white) printing process because it produces many more copies per toner cartridge than printers that print in color.
