Summary: You should test the scanner as soon as this unit is received, I have so far received two units from Amazon which have had bad scanners. The symptom is whenever I scan the image is green when the original had no color. Amazon has been good about replacing them but maybe they got a bad batch.
Summary: This ended up being a great purchase for our office. However, the only thing I didn't know when purchasing the 8480DN model was that it does NOT do 2sided to 2 sided copying. It will only do 1 sided to 2 sided.
Summary: I have a small law office, we have used the 8480DN Brothers Copier for over year, we like it. After three unnecessary Brother replacements, we have solved Two glitches; Glitch One is how to properly print wrinkle-free envelopes, Glitch Two is getting Word Perfect to print from the main tray ("Tray...
Summary: This is our second unit in the office. Best black and white laser we have ever purchused. We've had dells, hps, and canons. Very fast printing, incredible network scanning speeds. Cartrige lasts a long time. Easy to setup.
Excellent print properties - everything else works as advertised

Summary: We purchased this printer to replace the HP LaserJet we bought 10 years ago. We do a lot of project printing in our volunteer positions and for school, so our first priority was to buy a good laser printer.
Summary: I have been working at home for nearly two years on a legal case involving my little grand-nephew. I've spent countless hours and way too much money at Kinkos, or I've been frustrated at home trying to copy, print and scan with my little Canon.
Summary: 2nd Brother printer purchased for our small office - both working flawlessly - easy to setup and seem to be good on supplies as well - Be aware that the 8480 does NOT do duplex print copying or fax/scanning - it only does duplex printing from a print application.
Summary: First I must say that my background with MFC or multifunction anything is relatively high compared to most. I have had over 20 units to date. Most are in the circular recycling bin or sitting in storage. I know, they are disposible.
Summary: I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for the following reasons: 1) Scanning from the ADF is slower than I expected once you get past the first page. 2) The printer memory can be easily upgraded with up to 512 MB. However, the memory module is a 144-pin PC100/133 SO-DIMM. This is very out of date memory.
