Summary: I'm surprised at some of the problems folks are reporting about this printer. Brother may have quality issues. My wife and I love this printer. I scan all kinds of documents, send faxes occasionally, and print a fair amount. I've had my printer for over 5 years and never had a problem printing. No paper jams either. We used to print envelopes as well (not so much any more). Again, no problems. The only problem I had was with recognizing a second tray.
This is a multifunction machine that will fit any one needs for black and w

Summary: This is my 4th Brother MFC-8640N and they are work horses. We get hundreds of thousands of prints. Toner life is great and the quality of the printing is perfect. I will someday wear one out,I just don't know when.
Summary: I bought this printer when it first came out on the market and could not ben happier with it. For a printer in this price range, it is fast, affordable to run (especially if you use re-furbished toners) and does just about everything! I would recommend this printer to anyone who has a home based business or a teacher. Some months I used the machine quite heavily, other months not so much, but it always stood up!
Versatile all-in-one for daily usage without the expense of big brand

Summary: Great work horse for the money. I have placed 5 of these in a manufacturing environment including Inventory control to assembly. I have only had to replace 1 fuser assembly so far. Parts can be found on eBay priced reasonably. Highly recommended for network print/scan and copies. I have each device network attached without flaw can be set for DHCP or static IP. It will scan to ftp location in PDF format.
